A Bread Factory: PART I (122 min)
After 40 years of running The Bread Factory, Dorothea and Greta are suddenly fighting for survival when a celebrity couple—performance artists from China—come to Checkford and build an enormous complex down the street, catapulting big changes in their small town. Starring: Tyne Daly, Elisabeth Henry, James Marsters, Nana Visitor, Janeane Garofalo, Brian Murray, Philip Kerr, Glynnis O'Connor, Zachary Sayle, Janet Hsieh, George Young, Trevor St. John, Keaton Nigel Cooke, Nan-Lynn Nelson, Erica Durham, Chris Conroy, Kit Flanagan, Eugene Brell, Milton Craig Nealy, Noah Averbach-Katz, Elaine Bromka, Amy Carlson, Martina Arroyo, and Andy Pang.

A Bread Factory: PART II (120 min)
At The Bread Factory, they rehearse the Greek play Hecuba. But the real theatrics are outside the theater where the town has been invaded by bizarre tourists and mysterious tech start-up workers. There is a new normal in Checkford, if it is even really Checkford any longer. Starring: Tyne Daly, Elisabeth Henry, James Marsters, Nana Visitor, Brian Murray, Philip Kerr, Zachary Sayle, Jessica Pimentel, Jonathan Iglesias, Janet Hsieh, George Young, Trevor St. John, Martina Arroyo, Milton Craig Nealy, and Jake Brinskele.
