The Glass Menagerie
by Tennessee Williams
September 4 - September 29, 2013
"The greatest play ever written." —Pittsburgh City Paper
Amanda Wingfield, a faded Southern belle, holds tight to her two children: Tom, an aspiring poet, and Laura, his painfully shy sister. After receiving pressure from his mother, Tom brings home a gentlemen caller to meet his sister. What follows is an encounter that becomes one of the most compelling and heartbreaking stories ever told. A classic of the American stage, Tennessee Williams' deeply personal and haunting "memory play" is a touching and profound tale of love and loss, illusion and escape.
Redby John Logan

"A stunning new play...the most compelling drama I've seen all year." —Chicago Tribune
Winner of six 2010 Tony Awards, including Best Play, Red sends you crashing into the vivid and visceral mind of an artistic genius - abstract expressionist Mark Rothko. Set against the changing landscape of the early 1960s, the celebrated artist has just landed his biggest commission: a series of massive murals for New York's posh Four Seasons Restaurant. In the midst of his creation, Rothko's young, new assistant questions his artistic integrity, forcing the famed artist to confront the possibility that his crowning achievement could be his ultimate downfall. A searing portrait of an artist's determination and vulnerability, Red is a stirring and captivating story of on of the most celebrated artists in modern times.

"An evening of antic laughter!" —he New York Times
Winner of the 1981 Pulitzer Prize and the NY Drama Critics Circle Award, Beth Henley's comedy Crimes of the Heart brings you into the Mississippi household of the Magrath sisters. Babe has just shot her husband because she didn't like his looks. Meg is back in town after a failed attempt in the music business and a nervous breakdown. And Poor Lenny - everyone has forgotten her 30th birthday...plus, her pet horse was just struck by lightning! Bad luck certainly runs deep among the Magrath clan. But with warm-hearted laughs and touching family moments, the sisters forgive the past, face the present, and embrace the future in this contemporary American stage classic.
The Dresserby Ronald Harwood
February 26 - March 23, 2014
"Enthralling, touching and funny!" —New York Post
Both hilarious and heartbreaking, The Dresser is a backstage tale of life upon the wicked stage and the power that theatre has to lift the humans spirit in times of great strife. As Britain is under attack from German aircraft, a group of traveling, ragtag Shakespearean players tours the English countryside performing the Bard's tragic masterpiece—King Lear. Sir is the last of the great actors of a generation that has since past. As he prepares to play his 227th performance as Lear, he suddenly realizes he cannot recall his first line. It is only his dedicated and loyal dresser, Norman, who would do anything to help lift his master, that can bring the once-great actor to the stage for a final curtain call.

"The best-written, best-plotted, deepest, most daring—and funniest—new play in recent years." —Wall Street Journal
Billy is a young man who lives with an intellectual, chaotic and sharp-tongued family. Arguments and insults regularly fly around the dinner table, all while Billy silently watches the scene unfold—he has been deaf since birth. He has managed to adapt to his family's unconventional ways, but they've never really returned the favor. His world is turned upside down when he meets Sylvia, a young woman on the cusp of deafness herself. Fresh out of London and New York, and winner of the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Play, Tribes is the hysterical and touching coming-of-age story about the struggle for self-identity and what it truly means to be understood.
