Clybourne Park December 15-18
By: Bruce Norris
Directed by: George C. Heslin

An often-scathing, intentionally offensive satire about racism and social change, this multi-award-winning play explodes in two outrageous acts set fifty years apart. Trapped in a societal purgatory of ineptitude and anxiety, the first act takes place in a recently sold house in a white middle-class neighborhood of Chicago in 1959. The second act is set in 2009 in the same house, recently re-sold, now in a predominantly African-American neighborhood facing gentrification.

The Big Time September 24-29
Directed by: Douglas Carter Beane
Book by: Douglas Carter Beane
Music and Lyrics by: Douglas J. Cohen

A new musical comedy from the author of Broadway’s Sister ActCinderella, and Xanadu.

It’s the height of the Cold War when Russian spies take over an ocean liner holding all of NATO.  Leave it to lounge singers on board to save the day by teaching the communists to put down their Kalashnikovs and pick up singing, dancing, and comedy. 

The war is cold but the numbers are hot in this show with a ring-a-ding score that might just bring back the Rat Pack!

Her Naked Skin August 19-24
By: Rebecca Lenkiewicz
Directed by: Barbara Rubin

London 1913. Militancy in the Suffragette Movement is at its height. Emily Davison, in an act of resistance, runs out in front of the King's Horse and is trampled to death. Thousands of women of all classes are serving time in Holloway Prison for their violent struggle to gain the vote. Inside, Lady Celia Cain meets Eve Douglas, a young seamstress, and they begin an affair that crosses fraught class lines. With emancipation almost in sight, and women everywhere refusing to let the establishment stand in their way, Celia confronts what personal risks she must take to reveal what she truly values. Her Naked Skin premiered at The National Theatre in London in 2008, making history as the first original play written by a woman to be presented on the Olivier stage.

"I used to work at the National Film Theatre as an usherette" writes playwright Rebecca Lenkiewicz," and on my breaks I'd often go out to the river with a cup of tea and scour the bookstalls under Waterloo Bridge. One large paperback volume Shoulder to Shoulder cried out to me to be bought. It was by Midge Mackenzie and was a documentary account of the suffragettes. It was a battered copy and cost a tenner...and from devouring that book came my urge to write about the period and a desire to put those women into the foreground once more; their bravery and brilliance."
