Wittenberg

November 1-17, 2013

by David Davalos

This witty, anachronistic whirlwind, beautifully penned by local playwright David Davalos, tackles weighty subjects such as religion, philosophy, and literature. Wittenberg is a delightfully irreverent text which introduces audiences to just what (and whom!) made Hamlet the man he is today.

 

Venus in Fur

by David Ives

An erotic, powerful whisking away of that thinnest of veils between pleasure and pain, actor and character, writer and persona.

 

Clybourne Park

March 21-April 6, 2014

by Bruce Norris

A single house becomes the backdrop for provocative clashes about race, community, and gentrification in 1959 and 2009, forcing audiences to consider just how far we’ve come and how far we still have to go. Clybourne Park, originally inspired by A Raisin in the Sun, by Lorraine Hansberry, proves that these themes are just as relevant today as ever.

Sarah Ruhl’s brilliance at magic realism is brought to life (or afterlife) in this touching journey of one woman’s attempt to reconcile a dead stranger’s unfinished business with his family, friends, and coworkers without losing herself in someone else’s identity.

 

The Waiting Room

July 11-27, 2014

by Lisa Loomer

A darkly humorous comedy exploring the dangerous lengths to which women throughout time have gone to catch, and keep, a man.
