Announcing our 25th Anniversary Season for 2017-2018

OCTOBER 20 - NOVEMBER 12, 2017

by Laura Eason

When frustrated fortyish novelist, Olivia, meets fast-talking, twenty-something, blogger and memoirist, Ethan – known more for his sexual prowess than his prose – she worries that she will become just another chapter in his little black book.  Their funny and passionate union blurs the lines between rewrites, romance and royalties – proving you can’t judge a book by its author.

 

SEX WITH STRANGERS was one of the US’s top ten most produced plays in ’14-’15 AND ‘15-‘16.  Laura Eason is a screenwriter and playwright.  She is a producer/writer for the Emmy Award-winning Netflix series House of Cards.

 

“[An] incisive look at the double-edged quest for artistic validation in the digital era.” Newsweek

JANUARY 19 - FEBRUARY 11

by Erika Sheffer

A rowdy Russian immigrant family living and hustling in Brooklyn’s underbelly, scrambles to get by. How far are they willing to go to achieve the American Dream? Dark family secrets emerge when their dangerously charming Uncle Boris arrives from Russia. Just after bear hugs and shots of vodka are exchanged, Boris begins exerting a sinister influence on whole family.

 

RUSSIAN TRANSPORT is a funny passionate family drama that slyly transforms into a heart-pounding thriller!

 

"[An] engrossing moral thriller." —Time Out NY.

“Raw, strong and disturbingly funny.”  ---Chicago Reader.

 

 

APRIL 6 - APRIL 29

by Caryl Churchill

When Marlene is promoted to managing director based on merit over her senior male colleagues, she celebrates by hosting a dinner party at a posh restaurant for five legendary women from history, literature, and art.   Subsequently, these ladies become Marlene’s co-workers, clients, and relatives - all of whom rejoice in the success and lament the sacrifices required to “have-it-all.”

 

Winner of the Obie Award for Best Play, her seminal magnum opus of contemporary theatre, TOP GIRLS, is a sharp, imaginative and profound examination of the choices women continue to face.

 

"A blistering yet sympathetic look at women who achieve success by adopting the worst traits of self-made men [...] Truly original." - The New York Times
