A Doll's House, Part 2

A Doll's House, Part 2

By Lucas Hnath

September 23 - October 1, 2022

The door slam that concludes Ibsen’s A Doll’s House propelled drama into the modern age: Nora walks out on her husband, her family, her life. What if, many years later, there’s another knock? You need no familiarity with Ibsen’s 1879 masterwork to love Hnath’s riotous and incendiary A Doll's House, Part 2. Nora’s baaaaaaaaack!

Water by the Spoonful

Water by the Spoonful

By Quiara Alegría Hudes

November 11 - 19, 2022

In an age of uncertainty and chaos, can anger become forgiveness? Can resistance become redemption? The provocative and uplifting Spoonful is about the families we create in a world where everybody lives day to day – or spoonful by spoonful, to echo Hudes’ poignant metaphor.

As You Like It

As You Like It

By William Shakespeare

February 17 – 25, 2023

Shakespeare takes us out of place and time to Arden, a forest of imagination, self-discovery, and renewal. With As You Like It, the Bard gleefully abandons all historical and geographical accuracy to challenge notions of gender and class. “All the world’s a stage” – until it’s time to go home!

Opening Night: Friday, February 17 at 7:30pm 
First Saturday: Saturday, February 18 at 7:30pm 
Sunday Twilight: Sunday, February 19 at 4pm
