Three families are about to be joined together as the wealthy and well-known, African-American LeVay family gathers at their vacation home in Martha's Vineyard to celebrate the engagements of both of the family's sons, Kent and Flip. Kent's fiancé, Taylor, is an academic who's absent father, a prominent public intellectual, makes her less than charmed by the LeVay's posh lifestyle. Flip's girlfriend Kimber, a wasp (in her own words) who works with inner-city school children, seems to fit in well with the upper class family. The family and their guests are forced to grapple with race and privilege with all the affection, sardonic wit and tumultuous furor that comes with being a family of color in modern America.

"She's a polished playwright, creating a cast-full of dynamic characters all sitting uncomfortably on a powder-keg situation."

With an original, record-breaking run of 1466 performances in 4 years at the Theatre Royal in London, 1892, Charley's Aunt has enjoyed several revivals, translations, and film adaptations, and has charmed audiences for over a century. Two young men, Jack and Charley, scheme to catch the admiration of two young ladies by inviting them to meet Charley's worldly and wealthy aunt for dinner. When, at the last minute, she must cancel her visit, Jack and Charley quickly bully their buddy Fancourt Babberley into donning a wig, a skirt and bloomers. All seems to be solved, until the real aunt turns up and hilarity ensues. A classic farce for the whole family!

"Charley's Aunt is a splendidly written piece of light entertainment and bound to make you titter!"

St. George's Day in England, the morning of the county fair, the local drifting soul and pied piper of chaos, Johnny "Rooster" Byron, stirs the souls of his countrymen to forego the comforts of modern suburban life and raise their spirits in the countryside. His children want to spend the day with him, thugs want to teach him a lesson, the authorities want rid of him, but Rooster just wants more out of life. Having played on the West End and then on Broadway (and back to the West End), Jerusalem is a darkly comic and modern meditation on the spirit of a nation.

Jez Butterworth's gorgeous, expansive new play keeps coming at its audience in unpredictable gusts, rolling from comic to furious, from winsome to bawdy."

"There's no such thing as side effects...They're just effects you can't sell." It's the classic story of boy meets girl. Boy likes girl and girl likes boy. They fall in love. But why? Connie and Tristan are test subjects in a clinical trial fro a new antidepressant in development. Their immediate and fevered love ends up risking the integrity of the trial while they wrangle with the very origin and nature of their feelings. Are they truly meant for each other, or is it just the effect of some drug?

"...very clever - and ultimately more than clever...ingenious..."

Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead

by Tom Stoppard

Directed by Lance Bankerd


April 5th, 2019 - May 5th 2019

Pay What You Can/Preview Performance April 4th

Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are dead...I'm so sorry you had to find out this way. The ever absurd and existential comedy by Tom Stoppard features virtually every character that died in Hamlet. From the imagination of one of the most celebrated playwrights of modern times comes the ever energetic and nimble play on words, pun and Shakespeare. Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead is a dazzling high wire act balancing the monotony of being a bit player in someone else's story and the profound meaning of simply being alive...or dead.

"Very funny, very brilliant, very chilling; it has the dust of thought about it and the particles glitter excitingly in the theatrical air."
- The New York Times
