The Wonderful World of Dissocia December 4-6
By: Anthony Neilson
Directed by: José Zayas

Lisa Montgomery Jones has been feeling a bit off.  Perhaps it was the hour she lost when the clocks changed during her transatlantic flight. In search of the missing time that has tipped the balance of her life, she must take a journey to Dissocia - where cars fly, bears sing, and the Black Dog King reigns. This wildly surreal, fearlessly imaginative, and relentlessly surprising play by Anthony Neilson will take you places you never expected and will never forget.

Youth December 7-9
By: James Ijames
Directed by: Maya Davis

At a church youth meeting, four teenagers and their Pastor gather to sing, discuss their lives, and bond through spirituality. When a mysterious new member joins the group and miracles start to occur, the congregants must grapple with the meaning behind these remarkable events. This rousing, heartfelt work by James Ijames explores what it means to live - and love - in a world where anything is possible.

The Tempest December 10-12
By: William Shakespeare
Directed by: Raz Golden

In this contemporary orchestration of William Shakespeare’s The Tempest, a deluge has engulfed modern-day New York City. A group of not-quite-strangers are caught in the powerful storm and stranded beneath the streets of the city. As the unnatural origins of the titular tempest become clear, this tragic comedy powerfully explores themes of loneliness, revenge, magic, and freedom.

Marie Antoinette October 28-30
By: David Adjmi
Directed by: Dina Vovsi

When the young queen of France is thrown into a world of decadence and given a powerful, luxurious role to play, she struggles to navigate the clash of society's expectations with remaining true to herself. What happens when the political quickly becomes the personal? In this contemporary take on the life and final days of Marie Antoinette, David Adjmi invites us to consider the dark side of celebrity and what it means to face reality as a leader of a nation on the precipice of change.

Describe The Night October 25-27
By: Rajiv Joseph
Directed by: Lisa Milinazzo

Set in Russia over the course of 90 years, this thrilling play by Rajiv Joseph traces the stories of seven men and women connected by history, myth, and conspiracy theories. Anchored in historical fact, the narrative quickly spins into a patchwork of memory, lies, and revelations – all of which ultimately contend with the fundamental nature of truth.

Love and Information October 22-24
By: Caryl Churchill
Directed by: Sanaz Ghajar

Amidst an ever-increasing onslaught of knowledge, what does the modern state of human connectedness look like? Through a series of vignettes and sound bites, meet more than 100 characters who grapple with communicating their desires, fears, flaws, and fundamental sense of humanity. Running at the frenetic pace of modern life, these glimpses into vast personal worlds are at once sad, tender, funny, disjointed, and delightful.
