Eurydice - A whimsical retelling of the Greek myth from Eurydice's point of view, it tracks the bittersweet passage from father to husband. From boardwalks to the Underworld, wedding receptions to houses made of string, high-rise apartments to the River of Forgetfulness, the profound humanity and sensory spectacle of this play promises to carry us to new world.

Is Life Worth Living? - A legit repertory troupe comes to a small village in Ireland. The fun begins when the town elders decide to improve the tone of the place. Enter Hector De La Mare and his wife Constance Constantia of the De La Mare Repertory company--committed exclusively to "psychological and introspective drama: the great plays of Russia, an Ibsen or two, a little Strindberg."
 
Ma Rainey's Black Bottom -  August Wilson’s classic is set in Chicago, March of 1927 and follows the story of legendary blues singer Ma Rainey and her band, addressing race, religion, art, and the sometimes soul-crushing search for identity in 1920s America.

One - An original rock musical based on both the novel Siddhartha and the uniquely personal story of its author, Herman Hesse.

The Retributionists -  Spring 1946. The plan was simple: a German for every Jew. Its execution would be swift, clean, its impact undeniable. In this daring new romantic thriller inspired by actual events, a band of Jewish freedom fighters attempts to avenge a society's wrongs -- if they can keep from tearing each other apart.
