Immortals by Noah Habenstreit

A play about three beings who are able to live forever. One day they find out that's about to change. The pacing and rhythm of the dialogue is impeccable.

The Lesson by Steven Young

A professor and student deliberate gun violence and racism in ways that makes the audience a true witness to the implication. Unsettling.
