Season 2014


Making God Laugh (Feb. 13 – Mar. 8)

By Sean Grennan

Directed by Kristin Mack

A family comedy that takes place in four scenes, each ten years apart, set at various holidays.  Starting in 1980, the kids – a priest, an aspiring actress, and a former star football player – all return home, where we learn of their plans and dreams as they embark on their adult lives.  Over the course of thirty years’ worth of celebrations, we see how, despite what we may have in mind, we often arrive at unexpected destinations.

“…a gem of comic relief… this new heartwarming comedy has everything going for it.” — Chicago Sun-Times

I Love You Because…  (Apr. 17 – May 17)

Book and lyrics by Ryan Cunningham
Music by Joshua Salzman

Directed by Carol Ryder

This musical love story, a co-production with Humboldt Light Opera Company, is a modern-day twist on Jane Austen’s Price and Prejudice, set in New York City.  A young, uptight greeting card writer’s life is changed when he meets a flighty photographer.  Along with their eccentric friends and siblings, they learn to love each other not in spite of their faults, but because of them.

“Genuinely appealing! …out to enjoy itself, and the feeling is infectious.” – the Village Voice

Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike   (July 3 – 26)

By Christopher Durang

Directed by Jyl Hewston

Master of comedy, Christopher Durang takes characters and themes from Chekhov, pours them into a blender and mixes them up.  The utterly hilarious and occasionally touching result is his latest play set in present day Bucks County, Pennsylvania, where sister and brother Sonia and Vanya begrudgingly await a visit from their gallivanting movie star sister, Masha … who happens to show up with her new twenty-something boy-toy, Spike.

“…riotous…the show’s a ton of fun even if you can’t tell your Seagull from your Uncle Vanya…This is the kind of full-on comedy that’s sadly rare on Broadway.” —NY Post

Equivocation   (Sept. 4 – 27)

By Bill Cain

Directed by Catherine L. Brown

England, 1605:  Shagspere is commissioned by the prime minister to write the “true historie” of the Gunpowder Plot. And it must have witches!  A witty and high-stakes political thriller with contemporary resonances, this intriguing play gallops from the great Globe to the Tower of London to the halls of Parliament to the heart of Judith, Shag’s young daughter, who finds herself unexpectedly at the very heart of the political, dramatic and – ultimately – human mystery.

“No need to equivocate: Bill Cain’s EQUIVOCATION…is one of the most bracingly intelligent, sizzlingly theatrical American plays in a decade…”—Variety

Other Desert Cities   (Oct. 30 – Nov. 22)

By Jon Robin Baitz

Directed by Peggy Metzger

Brooke Wyeth returns home to Palm Springs after a six-year absence to celebrate Christmas with her parents, her brother, and her aunt.  Brooke announces that she is about to publish a memoir dredging up a pivotal and tragic event in the family’s history – a wound they don’t want reopened.  In effect, she draws a line in the sand and dares them to cross it.

“The most richly enjoyable new play for grown-ups that New York has known in many seasons…leaves you feeling both moved and gratifyingly sated.” —NY Times
