The Changeling
by Thomas Middleton and William Rowley
Directed by Karin Coonrod (Henry VI)

Lust, murder, adultery, and lunacy - it doesn't get more Jacobean than 
this masterpiece of mayhem.

Monday October 22, 7pm


Tallgrass Gothic
by Melanie Marnich
New York Premiere
Directed by Leigh Silverman (Well)
Featuring Tony Award-Winner Michael Cerveris (Sweeney Todd)

A stunning, lyrical re-telling of The Changeling set in contemporary 
rural Minnesota.

The Just
by Albert Camus, adapted and newly translated by Anthony Clarvoe
Directed by Ethan McSweeny (Best Man)
Featuring Obie Award-Winner Michael Stuhlbarg (Pillowman) and Tony 
Award-Winner Ellen McLaughlin (Angels in America)

Is violence ever the answer?  Even if the cause is just?  Step inside a 
terrorist cell circa 1905 and peer into the hearts and minds of young 
people willing to kill and die for what they believe.

Monday November 12, 7pm


The Rover
by Aphra Behn, adapted by John Barton
Directed by Eleanor Holdridge

A trio of English rakes looking for kicks in 17th century Spain meets a 
trio of Spanish sisters looking for husbands at carnival in this raucous 
and raunchy restoration comedy by the first woman to make her living as 
a playwright.

Monday November 26, 7pm


The Lady's Not For Burning
by Christopher Fry
Directed by Tony Award-Winner Joseph Hardy (Child's Play)
Featuring Lynn Redgrave and Richard Easton

In a world of hypocrisy, post-war superstition and witch-hunting, a man 
returns from war to find love and redemption in spite of his 
circumstances, all in a hilariously chaotic mix of characters wrapped up 
in a poetic tangle of fun.


*        Monday January 7, 7pm:
<> Bertolt 
Brecht's Edward II, a radical 20th century revision of the Elizabethan 
classic.  Featuring cast members from our production of Marlowe's play, 
directed by Michael Sexton.

*        Monday January 14, 7pm:
<> Don't Fuck 
With Love, a contemporary spin on Alfred de Musset's love tragicomedy by

the power elite, directed by Lear deBessonet.

*        Monday January 21, 7pm:
<> The 
Cardinal, by James Shirley, directed by Carl Forsman, starring Roger 
Rees.  The last of the great Elizabethan dramatists explores corruption

affairs, poison and death.
