October 18 - 27
The play's events occur around the Christmas 2004 holiday,
when the family of Polly and Lyman Wyeth gather in Palm
Springs, California. Their daughter Brooke announces to her
family that she is about to publish a memoir dredging up a
pivotal and tragic event in the family's history—a wound
they don't want reopened. A finalist for the 2012 Pulitzer
Prize for Drama.

Two gay men are in a committed relationship with a twist, with one, Luke,
being devoutly religious and the other, Adam, an atheist. The play
revolves around their five-year relationship and how they make it work
despite their differences. However, when an accident changes everything,
Adam must turn to Luke's family for support and answers.
An "artful, thoughtful and very moving story" – Ben Brantley, New York Times

Directed by Fred Harris
March 21 - 30
Set in Virginia following the final days of the Civil War, a Jewish Confederate soldier
returns to his childhood home only to find it in ruins and occupied by his former
slaves. Though a new chapter of history is unfolding, dangerous secrets of the past
threaten to destroy their connected history, and their shared faith. The Whipping
Man is a moving and provocative look at a pivotal time in American history.
May 2 - 11
