Marie Antoinette

by David Adjmi

October 12-15 & October 19-22, 2023

A contemporary take on the young queen of France, Marie is a diversion created by a society that values extravagance and artifice. But when France’s love affair with the royals sours and revolution brews, the political suddenly becomes very personal. Darkly funny and strikingly modern, Marie Antoinette holds a mirror up to our contemporary society that might just be entertaining itself to death.

Speech & Debate

by Stephen Karam

December 7-10, 2023

Speech & Debate is a dark comedy that the New York Times called, "bristling with vitality, wicked humor, terrific dialogue and a direct pipeline into the zeitgeist of contemporary youth." It follows the story of three misfit high school students in Salem, Oregon as they work together to try and expose a sex scandal within their school. By joining together to be the only members of the Speech & Debate club, the students are brought closer together in their shared activism and art, pushing through their pain to grow as people and create a performance that is honest, awkward, and important.

Shakespeare’s haunting tale of ambition and madness is brought to thrilling life in a vigorous and haunting production that lays bare the dark soul of the tragedy. Inspired by mysteriously prophetic witches, Macbeth and Lady Macbeth murderously ascend to the heights of power only for their bloody deeds to cause their fall into chaos and ruin.
