Tiny Beautiful Things

by Cheryl Strayed, adapted by Nia Vardalos

This is a play about hope, surviving hard things, compassion and finding happiness. A celebration of the simple beauty of being human, the story is based on Cheryl Strayed's (Wild) work as advice columnist, "Dear Sugar." Letters upon letters with funny, yearning and occasionally heartrending questions. Thomas Kail (Hamilton) who gave Vardolos the book said, "There's a reason Strayed's words resonate, and why so many people give her book to one another." "This play about the endangered art of listening to, and really hearing, other people." - NY Times. Warning on language, discussion of tough issues!

Leaving Iowa

by Spke Manton & Tim Clue

What's more fun than a family road trip? Remembering a family road trip! (It always seems better in retrospect doesn't it?) The spark behind Leaving Iowa comes from being children of parents from what is now dubbed the "greatest generation." The story is a toast to their idealism and character and a little roast of their undying dedication to the classic family road trip. More specifically, it is the story of Don Browning, a middle-aged writer, who returns home and decides to finally take his father's ashes to his childhood home, and remembering all the wonderful, and even not so wonderful, family road trips.

The Man from Earth

by James Bixby  & Richard Schenkman

Every 10 years or so, John Oldman has to move on. No matter what he's doing. No matter who he's with. He has to pack up and leave, or there will be talk of him not aging. John was born 14,000 years ago and not aged a day since he was 35. Packing his belongings to move to a new home, his colleagues, college professors from different disciplines, show up to give him an impromptu farewell party. He decides to tell his friends why he is leaving, turning the event into a mysterious and intense interrogation. Is he really ageless or is this all just a puzzle to test his old colleagues?

One Slight Hitch

by Lewis Black

This is a very funny and romantic play about a wedding, the perfect wedding, that Delia had always planned giving for a daughter. It has all the usuals of a perfect wedding, the accomplished and lovely bride & groom, perfect food, perfect decorations, (almost) perfect family members and like any comedy about a wedding, things will go wrong! Almost perfectly wrong and perfectly often! We do guarantee though that one wonderful couple will get their perfect wedding... perhaps not just as perfectly as expected!

Into the Breeches!

by George Brant

Into the Breeches! (George Brant) 

It's 1942 and the Oberon playhouse had scheduled a production of Shakespeare's "Henry" plays. The problem? Most of the men of the company have left to fight overseas. In a reversal of Shakespearean times (when men played all the female roles) the women of the company decide they will play all the male roles. This warm and funny play focuses not on Shakespeare or his plays, but on the WWII women who carried on, accepted others, made friends and created a community. Together they deliver a delightful celebration of collaboration, creativity and persistence when the show must go on.

In the Gutter

by John Morogiello

A door-to-door gutter salesman gets an unexpected proposition. She will buy his gutters with extras, but only if he murders her husband. Should he do it? Did the nosy neighbor overhear? Is everyone in way over their heads? The plot goes off the rails on a wild ride of puns and double entendres that will provoke both groans and irresistible laughter. Take a fast-paced ride "in the gutter" with us for twists and turns and hard-boiled comedic patter that both skewers and honors the "noir" tradition in the West coast premiere of this ridiculously fun comedy!
