November 27, 2018 at 7:30pm - Good Boys and True by Roberto Aguillere-Sacasa
Prep-school senior Brandon Hardy is brilliant, athletic, popular and charming—the kind of student that makes St. Joe's School for Boys proud to call its own. However, his privileged life threatens to collapse when a disturbing videotape is found on campus. As the resulting scandal takes unexpected turns, Brandon's mother Elizabeth must sort fact from fiction from family and confront unsettling truths about her son, herself, and their life.
December 18, 2018 at 7:30pm - Tigers Be Still by Kim Rosenstock
TIGERS BE STILL is a comedy that follows the misadventures of Sherry Wickman, a young woman who has recently earned her masters degree in art therapy only to find herself moving back home with her family, sending out countless résumés and waiting for the job offer that never comes. Unemployed and overwhelmed, Sherry retreats to her childhood bed and remains there until an unexpected employment opportunity gives her a renewed sense of purpose and hope. Now if only her mother would come downstairs, her sister would get off the couch, her very first therapy patient would do just one of his take-home assignments, her new boss would leave his gun at home, and someone would catch the tiger that escaped from the local zoo, everything would be just perfect.
January 29, 2018 at 7:30pm - Scenes from a Marriage adapted by Emily Mann
In Emily Mann’s highly theatrical adaptation of Ingmar Bergman’s popular 1974 film Scenes from a Marriage, audiences are invited into an intimate stage space to collectively experience the human politics of a relationship, through all the stages of life—from youth to middle age to maturity. Mann’s adaptation illuminates the universal themes of love, identity, and vulnerability that are at the heart of Bergman’s timeless film, exposing how the universal is truly revealed through the specific.
February 26, 2019 at 7:30pm- People, Places, and Things by Duncan MacMillian
Emma was having the time of her life. Now she’s in rehab. Her first step is to admit that she has a problem. But the problem isn’t with Emma, it’s with everything else. She needs to tell the truth. But she’s smart enough to know that there’s no such thing. When intoxication feels like the only way to survive the modern world, how can she ever sober up?
March 26, 2019 at 7:30pm - Night Sky by Susan Yankowitz
This extraordinary drama premiered to acclaim in a New York production directed by Joseph Chaikin. Night Sky theatrically explores what Steven Hawking has called the two mysteries remaining to us: the brain and the cosmos. When she is hit by a car, the brilliant and articulate astronomer Anna loses her ability to speak, a condition known as aphasia. What emerges from her mouth is a hodge-podge of unconnected words alternately confusing, funny, original and wise - and sometimes all four. In a series of brief, often comic episodes, the play follows Anna through her illness and ultimate acceptance of herself – a personal triumph, despite a continuing infirmity – and dramatizes the impact of her changed circumstances on her lover, her teen-aged daughter, and her professional life.
