by Naomi Iizuka
Directed by Allison Arkell Stockman
October 24 - November 24, 2013 Opening Night – Sunday, October 27 at 7 pm

An intricate, intelligent drama about the impossible search for the truth

Amid vibrant woodblock prints, luminous landscapes and evocative portraits, an ancient Japanese pillow book emerges – a diary of sorts consisting of poems, lists, and intimate observations. Six ambitious individuals engage in an erotic game of greed, love and mental hide and seek as they solve the mystery of its origins.

“A captivating portrait of the art world’s seamier side” – New York Daily News

“A shimmering puzzle palace steeped in the arcane lore of medieval Japanese literature” - Backstage

adapted from Molière
by Bill Irwin and Mark O’Donnell
Directed by Kathryn Chase Bryer
January 16 - February 16, 2014 Opening Night – Sunday, January 19 at 7 pm

Molière’s classic farce brilliantly updated for today and set to live music

The endlessly crafty servant Scapin and his dim-witted sidekick Sylvestre help their two young masters marry penniless beauties against both fathers’ wishes. Brimming with zany characters and improvisation, this physical comedy is an uproarious romp of hugely theatrical proportions.

"A vicarious lesson in the fine art of comic madness" - The New York Times

“A delightfully timeless farce” - Variety

The Love of the Nightingale
by Timberlake Wertenbaker
Directed by Allison Arkell Stockman
April 24 - May 25, 2014  Opening Night – Sunday, April 27 at 7 pm

Ovid’s mythical tale of family loyalties, passionate desire & devastating betrayal

Against a backdrop of war, two sisters are separated by a marriage and a vast ocean. Ever curious about the world, the young Philomele bravely takes a voyage on the high seas in hopes of a reunion. While the stars may guide the ship’s course, danger is in the air and our heroine must harness her inner creativity to survive.

With Live Music by Helen Hayes Award Winner Tom Teasley

"With wit, economy, and a powerful theatricality [Wertenbaker] offers us a rich retelling of the Philomele story. Her play passionately demonstrates the violence that stems from enforced silence" - London critic
