Tropical monsoons! Giant squids! Adventure on the high seas! Pulitzer prize-winner Donald Margulies pens an unabashed love letter to the simple pleasures of the old fashioned yarn. Join our hero, Louis De Rougemont as he spins a fantastic tale of shipwreck and survival in this tribute to imagination and theatrical invention. Suitable for all ages!

November 6 – 22
By Tennessee Williams
Directed by Steven Marzolf
Viewed through a veil of memory and regret, the Wingfield family struggles to negotiate the past, the future and each other in depression-era St. Louis. Both dreamlike and shatteringly real, Tennessee William’s iconic American classic examines a family on the edge of the abyss.

December 3 – 20
Written and performed by Janet Schlapkohl
Directed by Tim Budd
In her memoir of a Midwestern girlhood, local favorite Janet Schlapkohl recalls coming to grips with family and femininity at a time and place when social roles were strictly defined. Full of the playwright’s warmth and hallmark humor.

January 28 – February 21
By William McCauley
Directed by Sam Osheroff
It’s everyone for themselves in this hysterically funny, biting and amoral farce about greed, lust and the family ties that bind. A world premier!

March 4 – 13
Our perennial smorgasbord of solo selections offers yet another feast of mouth-watering monologues

April 1 – 17
By Mark St. Germain
Directed by Ron Clark
A professional dancer with a career-ending injury is thrown for a loop when a geoscientist with Asperger’s syndrome offers her an absurd sum to teach him how to dance. This funny, unsentimental and honest romance takes a hard look at what constitutes “normal.”
