  • Black Snow adapted by Keith Reddin (Dec. 1-23)
    Evan Yionoulis directs this tale, based on the Mikhail Bulgakov novel, which follows a young writer as his "dream rapidly turns into a comic nightmare when the most illustrious theatre in Moscow decides to make a play out of his failed novel. Sergei is propelled on a hilarious roller coaster ride through the tumultuous world of Stalinist Russia where he finds himself at the mercy of an absurdly autocratic director."
  • In the Continuum by Danai Gurira and Nikkole Salter (Jan. 12-Feb. 10, 2007) The Primary Stages Off-Broadway production comes to New Haven with its writer performers Gurira and Salter. Robert O'Hara stages the work that "puts a human face on the devastating impact of AIDS in Africa and America through the lives of two unforgettably courageous women... one in South Central L.A. and the other in Zimbabwe."
  • Lulu by Frank Wedekind (March 30-April 21, 2007)
    Mark Lamos directs the work by German playwright Frank Wedekind about one woman who "is the virgin and the vamp, the femme fatale and the eternal feminine… in short, the reflection of every man's desire.  Men would kill for her and die for her – and they do."
