The Pavilion

By Craig Wright

Peter returns to his twenty-year high-school reunion to win back Kari. Standing in Peter's way is Kari's bitter resentment, her husband and the fact that he still hasn't grown up. Peter and Kari are led, by a virtuosic Narrator playing a host of characters, to face the consequences of choices made long ago. They start back into life with newfound strength and bittersweet resolve in a play the South Florida Sun-Sentinel calls, “A gloriously theatrical treat."

Vanya AND Sonia AND Masha AND Spike… a new boy toy AND old resentments AND a sassy maid AND the family home in Bucks County, PA. Only playwright Christopher Durang could mold these odd characters and conflicts into a Tony Award winning play that is, “deliriously funny…a heedless good time." —The New York Times

 

The Mountaintop

On April 3, 1968, an exhausted Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., retires to his room at the Lorraine Motel. When a mysterious stranger arrives with some surprising news, King is forced to confront his destiny and his legacy to his people. This gripping reimagining of events the night before King’s assassination, “crackles with theatricality and a humanity more moving than sainthood." —New York Newsday

 

Stick Fly

By Lydia Diamond

Sunday, February 15, 6pm

Tickets: $7   Buy Tickets

A weekend at their Martha’s Vineyard vacation home was supposed to be a relaxing retreat for an affluent African-American family. But when the baggage gets unpacked, their secrets of prejudice, hypocrisy and adultery are aired in richly comedic and poignant ways. Through lively exchanges and simmering wit, Diamond imbues the characters “with a complexity we don't see enough onstage.”– TalkinBroadway.com

 

Venus in Fur

By David Ives

Sunday, March 29, 6pm

Tickets: $7   Buy Tickets

A beleaguered playwright/director is desperate to find the female lead for his adaptation of the classic tale Venus in Fur. Into his empty audition room walks a vulgar and equally desperate actress. Through the audition they blur the line between play and reality, entering into a serious game of submission and domination. The Village Voice said this erotic drama, “invites both carnal and cerebral excitement.” 


Middletown

By Will Eno

Sunday, May 31, 6pm    

Tickets: $7   Buy Tickets

In a small American every-town, a friendship develops between two people standing at the edge of loneliness. Their journey takes them from the local library to outer space and points between. The New York Times said this “delicate, moving and wry amble along the collective road to nowhere is a prickly awareness of the awesome mystery of existence.”
