This Season's Past Shows


A Midsummer Night's Dream September 22-24
By: William Shakespeare
Directed by: Vanessa Morosco

Shakespeare’s interwoven world of fairy magic and mortal love explodes in mischief and merriment as the charming folly of young lovers, the fantastical feud of immortal monarchs, and the endearing antics of bungling players, weave up and down through the forest of Athens, challenging the limits of mortal laws. In this joyful world where “the course of true love never did run smooth,” there is no limit to our imagination.

Dying For It September 19-21
By: Moira Buffini
Directed by: Barbara Rubin

In this Soviet-era satire, an irrepressible midnight craving for sausage leads an unemployed "little man" living off his wife's meagre wages to consider ending his life. Word of his impending death gets out, and within a few hours Semyon is proclaimed a great hero of the people who is about to take his life in a courageous and meaningful act of freedom and defiance. Only he just can't bring himself to do it.

Set in the Soviet Union in the late 1920s, where "only a dead man can say what a living man thinks," Dying for It is a free adaptation of Nikolai Erdman's The Suicide: a play that was banned by Stalin's authorities in 1932 before its first performance.  Erdman, who was sent to Siberia and silenced in his time, skillfully uses farce to capture the absurdity of life under a fascist regime, asking the ultimate question, 'why live'? Buffini reclaims this subversive Soviet classic in a celebration of the power of theatre.
