Poignant and wry, with a tapestry of rich characters

At the start of the twentieth century, as Russia rolls toward revolution, widowed Ranyevskaya returns home after a decade abroad to discover that her estate and its cherry orchard are at risk of being sold. In Chekhov’s great classic, Ranyevskaya and her family must confront their shifting fortunes in order to save their beloved orchard, or else they are doomed to lose it.

A phantasmal family comedy on humanity and hypocrisy

In an apocalyptic America gone grotesque with toxic pollution, Susannah reels after her father’s untimely death under a pile of radioactive chicken droppings. With her brother turning into a golden sundial and the rest of her greedy family growing ever more dysfunctional, Susannah follows her dead father’s advice and sets out to live with the crows.

A story of gentrification and urban power structures

Chavez Ravine brings to life a small Mexican-American community in Los Angeles that became a target for political maneuvering and land acquisition—and the eventual home of Dodger Stadium. A mixture of history, comedy and outrage, this freewheeling play incorporates music and vaudeville to tell the true story of how and why the inhabitants of Chavez Ravine lost their homes.
