Madagascar

A young man has disappeared. His sister, his mother and a family friend come at separate times to the same hotel room in Rome seeking answers. Why did he leave?

Annapurna

Written by Sharr White
Directed by Robert Egan

Twenty years ago in the middle of the night, Emma walked out on Ulysses, her cowboy-poet husband. Now, hearing he’s in dire straits, she tracks him down to a trailer park in the wilds of Colorado, where she finds him hooked to an oxygen tank and cooking sausages in the buff. Their reunion, alternately comic and conflicted, is full of razor sharp wit and brutal honesty. To their surprise, the more they understand what drove them apart, the more they’re drawn together.

“A comic and gripping duet.”
     -San Francisco Chronicle

Wednesday-Saturday at 8 pm. Thursday and Sunday at 2 pm.

“If that’s me over there, who am I?” A man learns that he has been cloned. Shocked, he seeks an explanation from his widowed father – but so do two other “sons.” Who is the original?

A fast-paced psychological thriller, a fascinating puzzle and a dark tale of a father’s love for his son from one of the great playwrights of our time.

The Amish Project

Written by Jessica Dickey
Directed by Daniel Elihu Kramer

In this stunning tour-de-force, a single actress plays a host of characters in an Amish community devastated by a terrible tragedy. From a convenience store worker to the gunman himself, each character comes to life — those trapped in cycles of grief or rage, and those who have a truly unexpected reaction. Jessica Dickey’s fictional exploration of the Nickel Mines Schoolhouse Shooting is a tale of redemption that forges a path of forgiveness and compassion in the aftermath of inexplicable violence. Featuring Allison McLemore (Tryst, the Nibroc Trilogy).

“Extraordinary… a remarkable piece of writing”
    – New York Times 

Performances are August 14-24.
Wednesday-Saturday at 8 pm. Thursday and Sunday at 2 pm.

SPECIAL EVENT: High Dive

by Leslie Ayvazian
Directed by James Warwick

In honor of our 25th Anniversary, we are bringing back a wildly successful one-woman show for a special limited engagement!

Comic misadventures pile up as Leslie, perched on a high dive platform, flashes back to the succession of farcical disasters that culminates in her present predicament. A one woman show with a very large cast. The other actors? The audience, who are invited to read lines from the script, and thereby experience the point of the play – the willingness to take risks and dive in. Featuring Jennifer Rohn (Body Awareness, Boston Marriage, Home Fires Burning, A Moon for the Misbegotten, John Brown’s Body)

“An engaging and hilarious show from beginning to end.” NY Daily News

Performances are July 22 – 24, 2014.
