Shows & Roles being cast:

Boy by Anna Ziegler
(Performance Dates Feb 2nd - 17th) (Rehearsal begins Jan. 1st, 2018)
Inspired by a true story, Anna Ziegler’s BOY explores the tricky terrain of finding love amidst the confusion of sexual identity, and the inextricable bond between a doctor and patient. In the 1960s, a well-intentioned doctor convinces the parents of a male infant to raise their son as a girl after a terrible accident. Two decades later, the repercussions of that choice continue to unfold.
“Captivating…insightful, gut-wrenching, and beautiful…dazzlingly, deliciously alive from start to finish…expect it to be a long while before there’s another play more rewarding, more moving, and more magical than Boy.” —

Week after week, a wealthy white businessman rides the same bus, befriending a single black mom. Ads they get to know one another, their pasts unfold and tensions rise, igniting a disturbing and crucial exploration of race.
“A play with guts…this unusually frank drama has been gnawing away at me these last 24 hours…I see so many plays that want to blurt out some of the things that these characters say but don’t have the nerve. This one goes for the jugular.” —Chicago Tribune.

Bloomsday by Steven Dietz
(Performance Dates August 17th - Sept. 1st) (Rehearsal begins July 16th)
Dancing backwards through time, in Dublin, an older couple retraces their steps to discover their younger selves. This Irish time-travel love story blends wit, humor, and heartache into a buoyant, moving appeal for making the most of the present before it is past.
“BLOOMSDAY is filled with sweet charm…Dietz’s convention of mixing the past with the present…works beautifully and when mixed with his signature rich characters makes for a wonderfully engaging time…there’s an honest and sobering realism to the piece that takes this beyond a simple romantic comedy and places it in the realm of a tragic love story…BLOOMSDAY gives us a funny, touching and stark look at what it is to be in love no matter what stage of life you’re in.” —

“David Lynch, Amy Tan and The Man Show collide in FREAK STORM…. Matt Pelfrey’s play about the inscrutability of those we love juggles macabre comedy, relationship drama and political incorrectness…” - Los Angeles Times “In the skilled hands of playwright Pelfrey, this is a classic, dramatic moral dilemma that goes...right to the guts...with primal force and power...” - Backstage West
