SHIPWRECKED! An Entertainment—The Amazing Adventures of Louis de Rougemont (as Told by Himself)
By Donald Margulies                                                           
Directed by Sam Osheroff

Told by audacious autobiographer Louis De Rougemont, this tale of tropical monsoons, giant squids, and desert island survival thrilled both children and adults in Victorian England. Is our hero an inspirational genius, or a mere con man?

November 6 – 22
THE GLASS MENAGERIE
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 4 - 19
COMING OF AGE IN CHORE BOOTS
Written and performed by Janet Schlapkohl                                 
Directed by Tim Budd

Brimful of earthy humor, unvarnished truth and oddball characters, a Midwest memoir that could only have come from the brain of Janet Schlapkohl.


January 29 - February 21
LINE OF DESCENT
By William McCauley
Directed by Sam Osheroff
It's everyone for themselves in this hysterically funny, biting farce about greed, lust and the family ties that bind.

March 4 - 13
ROAR!
A weird, wild & wonderful night of original solo work.

April 1 – 17
DANCING LESSONS
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."
