For A Brighter Tomorrow

It’s 1974. Cosmonauts Dmitri and Yuri are onboard a secret Soviet space station, a tiny capsule miles above Earth. As the cosmonauts argue the mundane intricacies of life—particularly the best way to woo Pat Nixon—they're interrupted by an urgent radio message. Suddenly the fate of the planet rests in the hands of these two unlikely heroes, who must work together to determine the right thing to do in a world gripped by secrets, suspicions, and lies.


Blood and Dolly

In this freaky-deaky reimagining of Macbeth, Scotland is replaced by a 1960s cult. Written in verse, this adaptation follows the titular character as he plots to kill leader Guru Duncan. But Macbeth doesn’t only want the title guru, he wants to dominate his flock. Set in the shadow of the Vietnam War, is everyone forced to follow fate, or is destiny just politics?

But Phoebe is the one with the boyfriend, so can Minny heal their relationship?

The Witching Hour

As Arthur waits on the tracks for a delayed train to hit him, he's discovered by Felicity, who offers him a brighter path forward.

The Sermon


Jesus just finished his Sermon on the Mount, and his disciple Matthew has some “constructive criticism.” Faith and finances collide as the two argue about the future of the messiah business: idealism threatens to turn to greed, and authenticity teeters on the edge of cynicism. Funny and irreverent, this play shows the fallout when money mixes with religion. And maybe all along, the real miracle was Capitalism.
