    Tickets: $20 per person

    Hailed as “one of the most gifted and adventurous American playwrights” by The New York Times, Sarah Ruhl has created a smart, classy and touching comedy about marriage, intimacy and how electricity came along to fuse them. In a prim Victorian home, a gentleman doctor innocently invents a most extraordinary device for treating “hysteria.” As his wife listens in the next room, long dormant thoughts and feelings begin to stir deep within her.

    This beguiling play about love, longing, science and invention was a 2010 Tony Award® Nominee for Best Play and a Pulitzer Prize finalist.

    Directed by Amie E Bello

    GLENGARRY GLEN ROSS

    Written by David Mamet
    Directed by Will Britton

    Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for drama, Glengarry Glen Ross is David Mamet’s scorching play about a group of desperate salesmen in a Chicago real estate office. When a contest pits the men against each other, they resort to manipulation, bribery and even theft to keep their jobs. The Darwinian struggle that ensues is a stinging indictment of a culture that rewards the strong, punishes the weak and values success above all else. One of the most influential plays of the 20th century, Glengarry Glen Ross shows Mamet at the height of his literary and dramatic powers.

    Performance Dates: October 1-5, 9-12

     

    A CHRISTMAS STORY

    Written by Philip Grecian
    Directed by Richard Linley

    Humorist Jean Shepherd’s memoir of growing up in the midwest in the 1940s follows 9-year-old Ralphie Parker in his quest to get a genuine Red Ryder BB gun under the tree for Christmas. Ralphie pleads his case before his mother, his teacher and even Santa Claus himself, at Goldblatt’s Department Store. The consistent response: "You’ll shoot your eye out."

    All the elements from the beloved motion picture are here, including the Scut Farkas, the school bully; the boys’ experiment with a wet tongue on a cold lamppost; the Little Orphan Annie decoder pin; Ralphie’s fantasy scenarios and more.

    Performance Dates: December 10th-15th

     

    THE UNDERPANTS

    Written by Steve Martin
    Directed by Clayton Garrett

    From the mind of Steve Martin, the renowned comic actor and author of Picasso at the Lapin Agile, comes a wild and crazy satire. The Underpants is the cheeky tale of Louise, the pretty but neglected wife of a blockheaded bureaucrat, whose bloomers unaccountably fall down around her ankles in public. Her husband is horrified, fearing scandal and sure enough, two men — a poet and a barber — show up at their door hoping to rent the spare room and woo Louise. Filled with Steve Martin’s famous flashes of wit, The Underpants is a gleeful and giddy romp about scandal and celebrity.

    Performance Dates: January 28-February 1, February 5-8, 2014

    THE STONE ANGEL

    Written by James W. Nichol
    Directed by Frances Berry

    StoneAngel SmallIt is the late 1960s, and Hagar Shipley’s days are drawing to an end. In the course of an afternoon, Hagar’s life unfolds: her childhood in a small prairie town, her Scottish immigrant father, the tumultuous relationship with her now-estranged husband, her sons, and their partners.

    "James Nichol has taken Margaret Laurence’s harshly-powerful Canadian novel, The Stone Angel, and turned it into a complex, multi-layered and riveting theatre piece."
    -The Montreal Star

    Performance Dates: March 25-29, April 2-5, 2014
