IRON SHOES

A contemporary, neo-feminist, folk opera combining powerful singing, movement, storytelling and humor, Iron Shoes transforms centuries-old Eastern European fairy tales into a fantastical performance experience. A modern woman leads us into three magical worlds, with three innocent girls each suffering monstrous cruelties. As she tries to understand their stories she also tries to control their stories. She learns it’s a real test to “walk a mile in someone else’s shoes.” Especially when they’re made of iron.

DRY LAND

Amy and Ester are on a swim team at a suburban Florida high school. Ester is aiming for a scholarship. Amy just wants to get through a crisis. Together they navigate friendship, personal agency, abortion, and relationships. The New York Times describes Dry Land as a: “portrait of an unlikely friendship under uncommon pressure is tender, caustic, funny and harrowing, often all at the same time... Dry Land understands that friendships among adolescents in crisis, especially among those coming to the end of a chapter in their lives, can be as intense and ephemeral as summer storms.”

WHITE

Gus is a talented artist on the rise. His good friend Jane has just become the curator of the prestigious Parnell Museum, so surely, she will include his latest masterpiece with her first exhibit. After all, he’s earned it. When Jane informs him that since he is a white man he is “the exact opposite of what I’m looking for” Gus is crushed. Then he meets Vanessa, an African-American actress who agrees to an unconventional role. White explores cultural appropriation with incisive wit, intelligence, and a splash of magical realism.

KISS 

A group of actors discover a script set in Damascus in 2014. It’s a romantic melodrama and they eagerly begin performing the tale of love and heartbreak. The director believes they will learn something about what it’s like to live in Syria. Then the playwright enters and everything explodes. With subtly shifting perspectives, Kiss compels us to continually question our grip on reality.  It’s a mystery and political thriller dressed up as a love story.
Written by Guillermo Calderón
Directed Evren Odcikin
Presented in association with Golden Thread Productions

WOMEN LAUGHING ALONE WITH SALAD

The LA Times wrote, "This salad might make you laugh harder than any you’ve eaten, but bite carefully. The chef is not always eager to please. She could even be a little dangerous." Inspired by the internet meme of... “women laughing alone with salad”, Sheila Callaghan explores gender stereotypes, relationships, and sexism, along with a healthy side of humor and mixed greens. She breaks all the rules of our image-obsessed culture in this raw, feminist comedy where everyone is about to get tossed!

ARCADIA

The reason we choose plays that tackle the thorniest issues of our time is because these are also the things that keep from each other.  The extent to which we able to address obstacles in an open and honest way is directly related to our ability to manifest our highest calling and most noble purpose – to love. Stoppard's masterpiece is about many things - but ultimately it's an exploration of the undeniable power of love. I couldn't think of a better way to complete this season.
