Jasmine and Penny, a new couple of one month, are invited to a lunch party by hosts Jordan and Billie, a married couple of five years, who are living the lesbian dream together. They have a beautiful home, a fabulous partnership, and Rosie, a darling Pit Bull pup that they co-parent with another couple. While the hosts tend to the grill, Jasmine and Penny escape for a quickie—because it’s August 2nd, and they haven’t had sex all month. While rolling around in their pals’ bedroom, they stumble upon what appears to be an anonymous suicide note, which leads them to believe that maybe Jordan and Billie’s partnership isn’t as effortless as it seems. This (mostly improvised) dark comedy takes on important topics, from frequency of masturbation to whether or not it’s a good idea to decorate your home with items that once belonged to a neighbor who died in a hot tub. You know, the type of stuff you and your friends typically discuss over beer and grilled veggie skewers.

The Carnival is back in town and Jim is hell-bent for leather to ride the Polar Express and worship his ultimate fantasy: the airbrushed mural of the fur-clad polar goddess. A gender-bending heavy metal mid-way ride of ridiculous fun.
