Join us on one Tuesday every month as we explore a variety of great plays … classics as well as new works! Some plays may contain mature subject matter.
The Humans, by Stephen Karam: November 5 at 7 p.m. Breaking with tradition, Erik Blake has brought his Pennsylvania family to celebrate Thanksgiving at his daughter’s apartment in lower Manhattan. As darkness falls outside the ramshackle pre-war duplex, eerie things start to go bump in the night and the heart and horrors of the Blake clan are exposed.
Peter and the Starcatcher, by Rick Elice: December 10 at 7 p.m. Tony-winning Peter and the Starcatcher upends the century-old story of how a miserable orphan comes to be The Boy Who Would Not Grow Up (a.k.a. Peter Pan). A wildly theatrical adaptation of Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson’s best-selling novels, the play was conceived for the stage by directors, Roger Rees and Alex Timbers, and written by Rick Elice, with music by Wayne Barker. From marauding pirates and jungle tyrants to unwilling comrades and unlikely heroes, Peter and the Starcatcher playfully explores the depths of greed and despair… and the bonds of friendship, duty and love.
The Santaland Diaries, by David Sedaris: *TWO RETURN PERFORMANCES* Wednesday December 11 & 18 at 7 p.m. Based on his beloved humorous and autobiographical essays, David Sedaris’ The Santaland Diaries, adapted for the stage by Joe Mantello, is a wry and witty look at the combination of retail hell and theatrical spectacle that is the holiday season, a sharp, narrowly observed dark comedy.
Stop Kiss, by Diana Son: Tuesday, February 11 at 7 p.m. “A poignant and funny play about the ways, both sudden and slow, that lives can change irrevocably,” says Variety. After Callie meets Sara, the two unexpectedly fall in love. Their first kiss provokes a violent attack that transforms their lives in a way they could never anticipate.
The Seagull, by Anton Chekov, adapted by Stephen Kiersey: Tuesday, March 10 at 7 p.m.
