STRAIGHT WHITE MEN
by Young Jean Lee
Obie Award-winning playwright Young Jean Lee takes a hilariously ruthless look at the classic American father-son drama. It’s Christmas Eve, and Ed has gathered his three adult sons to celebrate with matching pajamas, trash talking, amusing antics, and Chinese takeout. But when a question they can’t answer interrupts their holiday cheer, each is forced to confront their own identity. It’s a funny family Christmas that no one can forget.
Begins rehearsal 11/20/18, opens 12/14/18, closes 3/9/19.
Person in Charge
THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME by Simon Stephens
Christopher Boone is exceptionally intelligent, but ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. He sets out to investigate the bizarre death of a neighbor’s dog, inspiring a series of events that expose far greater mysteries. As the clues fall into place, they reveal a community of disparate characters, a family with secrets, and a gifted mind in a complicated relationship with the world. This international hit takes you inside the extraordinary mind of a boy who views the world as most of us can only imagine.

WEDNSDAY’S CHILD by Mark St. Germain
Susan and Martin Merritt are unable to have a child on their own, so they hire Becca Connor to serve as a surrogate. When Becca is found dead, a police investigation explodes the lives of everyone who knew her. As Detectives Valez and Dixon begin to put the pieces together, secrets surface, alibis weaken, and lies are uncovered.

HAND TO GOD by Robert Askins
A rogue puppet named Tyrone has hijacked the hand of a timid teen, and there’s nothing his classmates, mother, or the pastor can do to exorcize this foul-mouth demon. HAND TO GOD is a thrill ride of a comedy about good and evil, sex and sin, faith, and the filthy mind of one twisted sock puppet.
Begins rehearsal 12/27/18,
CHERRY DOCS by David Gow
A neo-Nazi skinhead is charged with murder, and Legal Aid has assigned him a Jewish lawyer. Over the course of developing a defense for the skinhead, the lawyer is forced to examine the limits of his own liberalism, and the demons underlying it. An unblinking examination of hatred, the explosive effect it has on our society, and the hurdles that confront us as we set about eradicating it.
Begins rehearsal 1/29/19,
BUYER AND CELLAR by Jonathan Tolins
Struggling to make ends meet, Alex More is hired as the sole employee in Barbra Streisand’s personal shopping mall—with Babs herself as the only customer. In 90 comical minutes, Alex explores Barbra’s possessions, her life, and the true meaning of celebrity.
