MACBETH
by William Shakespeare
dir. Brant Russell

1-5 October, 2014

8 pm evening curtain time
2 pm matinee curtain time on Saturday and Sunday

11th century Scotland - a world of brutality, wickedness, and armor.  In this dark, twisted landscape, Macbeth will go to any means necessary to prove that he’s a man.  With the help of his wife, and pushed by a trio of gnarly creatures, witches who were women once, Macbeth schemes to take the throne and eliminate anyone standing in his way.

Paid Admission as part of the Mainstage Series

SPEECH AND DEBATE
by Stephen Karam
dir. Richard E. Hess

6-8 November, 2014

8 pm evening curtain time
2 pm matinee curtain time on Saturday

"Stephen Karam’s dark comedy seems to be about a frumpy girl, a nerdy guy and an openly gay guy who band together to disclose the truth about a teacher who preys on his male students. But that topical plot is almost window dressing. The play’s real accomplishment is its picture of the borderland between late adolescence and adulthood, where grown-up ideas and ambition coexist with childish will and bravado."

- Caryn James, The New York Times

THE HEIDI CHRONICLES
by Wendy Wasserstein    
dir. Richard E. Hess

11-15 February, 2014

8 pm evening curtain time
2 pm matinee curtain time on Saturday and Sunday

Wendy Wasserstein’s groundbreaking and moving examination of feminism and its evolution from the 1960s through the 1990s.  Winner of the 1989 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the Tony Award for Best Play. Sexuality, feminism, education, gender equality, marriage, women’s rights: there’s no hot-button issue this play doesn’t touch.  This penetrating comedy asks ‘Will our ideals stand the test of time, and what do they cost us?’

dir. Brant Russell

23-25 April , 2015

8 pm evening curtain time

You're Welcome is a collection of five small plays about creation and failure; a unified theatrical myth that tells the story of an invented band of performers and their catastrophic attempts at connection. The plays are also about love, death, desire, tragedy, comedy, drunk driving, sexiness, beauty, loss, the battle between good and evil, a baby born wearing a hat. And theatre.
