Centers on the egocentric actress Audrey Langham and her family which consists of a daughter she has not spent quality time with in years. Audrey has a meltdown on the stage and decides to give it up and live with her daughter and her husband Dennis in their summer house on Cape Cod. There, secrets are revealed as the young neighbor, gay pot dealing son Lucas and his father begin spending more time with the family.

In Donald Margulies’ riveting play Collected Stories, an innocent meeting between mentor and student evolves into something quite adversarial. Ruth Steiner is an established writer and professor. Lisa Morrison is a graduate student and aspiring writer.

Their worlds clash in an emotional roller coaster of age, artistic license, and betrayal. Our private stories are sacred, aren’t they?

AccompliceQuestionMarkPCAccomplice: where nothing is quite what it seems. A devilishly-clever thriller that takes the audience on a thrill ride of plot twists and turns guaranteed to keep you guessing until the end. Winner of an Edgar for Best Play, Accomplice springs from the mind of Rupert Holmes, the writer behind the Tony-winning mystery The Mystery of Edwin Drood.

“A delight. It is humorous, odd, scary, wildly dramatic, adult, adolescent in short, impossible to dislike.”

House of Blue Leaves


March 1st – March 25th, 2012

Directed By Neill Hartley


final_draft-HOBLThe House of Blue Leaves is a zany comedy centered on the day the Pope made his visit to New York City in 1965. The play’s author, John Guare, uses his characters to accentuate the elusive search for fame, and also begs the question:  What is normal?

Every wonderfully wacky character, from Artie to Bunny, to Bananas to Ronnie, to Billy to Corinna, and to a group of crazy nuns, are all searching for that ambiguous something that fame represents. They make us question:  Which of these characters are really normal? And the question continues to linger at the end of the play.

But, what is normal?  In today’s world of reality television, creating fame out of normal people makes The House of Blue Leaves more relevant now than ever before!
