HEISENBERG: THE UNCERTAINTY PRINCIPLE
Sept 15 thru Oct 10, 2021
By Simon Stephens
Directed by Paul Mullins
Featuring Paul Whitworth and Erika Schindele
In this “vibrant and emotionally charged” (The New York Times) new play from one of theater’s most original voices, a bustling London train station brings an unexpected encounter between free-spirited American Georgie and reserved Irishman Alex, thrusting two strangers into a life-changing game. When she turns up in his shop a few days later, the suspicious Alex is drawn into Georgie’s anarchic world and his conventional life becomes chaotic, uncertain, and undeniably richer.
PUMP BOYS AND DINETTES
Nov 17 thru Dec 12, 2021
By John Foley, Mark Hardwick, Debra Monk, Cass Morgan, John Schimmel and Jim Wann
Directed & Choreographed by Lee Ann Payne
Featuring Chris Reber, Brent Schindele, Diana Torres Koss, and Julie James
We first performed this joyful musical in 2013 and now it’s back for an encore run. Filled with an exuberant mixture of country pop/rock and musical theatre tunes, Pump Boys is a slice of life show about some down home folks who run the local gas station and diner in a rural southern town. This cast of characters and their straightforward take on life, love and music will leave you tapping your foot and smiling from ear to ear.
Jan 26 thru Feb 20, 2022
By Conor McPherson
Directed by Susan Myer Silton
The arrival of a mysterious single woman from Dublin disrupts the routine in a tiny pub in rural Ireland. Pints in hand, the local barflies vie to impress her with tales of the supernatural – but what starts as stories of ghosts and fairies leads to revelations about love and family, forging bonds of friendship and illuminating the healing powers of community and kindness. Playwright Conor McPherson, deft at writing plays that combine a comedic touch with deep resonant themes, was awarded the Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Play for The Weir.
REMAINS TO BE SEEN
Mar 30 thru Apr 24, 2022
By Kate Hawley
Directed by Paul Mullins
Featuring Paul Whitworth and Mike Ryan
Every five years a group of old drama department friends reunite. This year it’s at Jack and Clare’s and Clare is dreading it. Are these old friends really still friends, or are they just old habits drained over the years of any genuine fondness or rapport? It is certain that everyone will drink too much and Gordon will talk too much and Sissy will bring her damned little dog when she was specifically asked not to. On top of it all, recent widower Stuart is bringing a mysterious new love. What’s happened to their dreams and old ambitions? Good actors as they may have been, they can’t prevent the truth of their lives from making an appearance.
May 18 thru Jun 12, 2022
By Denis O’Hare & Lisa Peterson
Based on Homer’s The Iliad, translated by Robert Fagles
Directed by Kirsten Brandt
Featuring Patty Gallagher
The timeless power of storytelling brings to life this gripping adaptation of Homer’s classic. A lone poet on a bare stage throws us right into the midst of conflict where heroes and countries clash in a quest for power and glory. In this vibrant retelling, the Trojan War and present day are set side by side as ancient history is catapulted into an intense, intimate, and at times funny, story for today.

By Ira Levin
Directed by TBD
Ensconced in his charming Connecticut home, Sidney Bruhl, a successful writer of Broadway thrillers, is struggling to overcome a dry spell which has resulted in a string of failures and a shortage of funds. A possible break in his fortunes occurs when he receives a script from one of his college seminar students—a thriller which Sidney recognizes immediately as a potential Broadway hit. Sidney offers to collaborate with the student, an idea which the younger writer enthusiastically welcomes. Thereafter suspense mounts steadily as the plot begins to twist and turn with an abundance of thrills and laughter. Deathtrap holds the record as the longest running comedy-thriller on Broadway with its 4-year run (1,809 performances).
