Oil and Sugar

Performance Dates: December 7-9, 14-16 at 8pm; December 10 at 3pm

A tight-knit, Michigan-based thriller about trust as power, art as disclosure, and how processed souls are poised for mutual destruction.

Suddenly-famous artist Inque and her lawyer husband Michael haven't been married very long, but suddenly, she's acting strangely--leaving her new house in the middle of the night, rubbing white paint into her hair, acutely aware of everything. Michael does what any husband would do--he hires a private investigator to watch from the house opposite. Inque hires a therapist to work through her own strange feelings. And while Michael waits for Inque to get "normal" again, Inque waits for a midnight visitor--and for her past to catch up with her. This time, she might actually be ready--if her carefully constructed plan actually works and doesn't kill her first.

World Premiere


We hope to carry on the tremendous theatrical legacy that our dear friend, Randy Wyatt, left living in his place, by producing a work of his that he never had the opportunity to see staged before his passing in 2023. 

Back in 2017 and 2018 a handful of folks from the community helped read and workshop this script which then received a public reading alongside the AQ Theatre program Randy was running at the time.

A donation, equal to royalties paid to his family, will be made to The Trevor Project in Randy's honor.
We are incredibly grateful to the Wyatt family for their permission to produce this work.
