Our 2016-2017 season…

Our season preview production! When CB’s dog dies from rabies, CB begins to question the existence of an afterlife. His best friend is too burnt out to provide any coherent speculation; his sister has gone goth; his ex-girlfriend has recently been institutionalized; and his other friends are too inebriated to give him any sort of solace. But a chance meeting with an artistic kid, the target of this group’s bullying, offers CB a peace of mind and sets in motion a friendship that will push teen angst to the very limits. Drug use, suicide, eating disorders, teen violence, rebellion and sexual identity collide and careen toward an ending that’s both haunting and hopeful.

Jason Robert Brown’s Drama Desk winner The Last Five Years is an emotionally powerful and intimate musical about two New Yorkers in their twenties who fall in and out of love over the course of five years. The show’s unconventional structure consists of Cathy, the woman, telling her story backwards while Jamie, the man, tells his story chronologically; the two characters only meet once, at their wedding in the middle of the show.

“Bursting with humor, rage and hope” (Backstage), Elegies for Angels, Punks, and Raging Queens is a celebration of lives lost to AIDS told in free verse monologues with a blues, jazz and rock score. Designed to include the community in a theatrical response to the AIDS crisis, Elegies “generates a feeling of love, humanity and common cause that sends you out glowing” (Glasgow Herald).

The Activist Arts Series aims to serve the artistic community, the local community, or both through the telling of a relevant story to a particular cause. Tickets for Elegies will be free, but freewill donations made will be given to a charitable organisation to benefit AIDS relief.
