WEEK 1 July 14 - 16: Sundown Town  Written by Harold Smith, Directed by JanLee Marshall

In the early 20th Century, many towns in the Midwest, southwest, and northeast excluded people of color; no black person was allowed in town after sundown. But what happens when a black man, stuck in a sundown town after dark, suddenly shows up on your doorstep?

WEEK 2 July 21 - 23: Extraordinary Mysteries Written by Peet Cocke, Directed Jeremy Cole

Extraordinary Mysteries is an existential romp through time, space, and chaos, among a gathering of bewildered and wandering souls -
most of whom don't have the slightest sense of where they are, where they are going, or where they have been.

WEEK 3 July 28 - 30: Pinned Butterfly Written by Adam Douglas, Directed by Peet Cocke 

When the members of BKPRIDE decide to hold the very first Brooklyn Gay Pride March, a handful of secrets ignite, turning what should be a celebration of self into a scathing dissection of bisexual erasure, prejudice within the LGBT community,
and what happens to love left out in the sun.

WEEK 4 August 4 - 6: Nomen Written by Melynda Kiring, Directed by Alan Cameron 

In a war-torn kingdom, two enemies are very sure of what they want and how they will get it. ...Until they are suddenly not so sure. In Nomen,
a Princess and a General discover that all is not necessarily fair in love and war.

Our new 2017-18 Season

Almost, Maine

Written by John Cariani
Directed by JanLee Marshall 
October 12 – 28, 2017

On a cold, clear, moonless night in the middle of winter, all is not quite what is seems in the remote, mythical town of Almost, Maine. As the Northern Lights hover in the star-filled sky above, Almost's residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend - almost - in this delightful midwinter night's dream. Tickets coming soon...
