A contemporary, neo-feminist, folk opera brimming with humor, Iron Shoes transforms Eastern European fairy tales into a fantastical performance experience. A modern woman encounters three innocent girls, each suffering monstrous cruelties. She tries to understand their stories, but also tries to control their stories. It’s a real test to “walk a mile in someone else’s shoes.” Especially when they’re made of iron.

Amy and Ester are teammates on a suburban Florida high school swim team. Ester is aiming for a scholarship. Amy just wants to get through an unwanted pregnancy. The New York Times describes Dry Land: “this portrait of an unlikely friendship under uncommon pressure is tender, caustic, funny and harrowing… Ms. Spiegel demonstrates an uncanny gift for presenting the unavoidable messiness of being young.”

Gus is a talented white male artist on the rise. His good friend Jane is the new curator at a prestigious museum.  When Jane informs him he’s “the exact opposite of what I’m looking for” Gus is crushed. Then he hires Vanessa, an African-American actress who agrees to an unconventional role. White navigates the treacherous waters of code-switching and cultural appropriation with biting wit and a splash of disco realism.

A group of actors discover a script set in Damascus. They eagerly begin performing what appears to be a romantic melodrama, believing they will learn something about what it’s like to live in Syria. Then 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.

Inspired by the internet meme of... “women laughing alone with salad”, Sheila Callaghan explores gender stereotypes, relationships, and sexism, with a healthy side of humor and mixed greens. Callaghan breaks all the rules of our image-obsessed culture in this raw, feminist comedy where everyone is about to get tossed!

The extent to which we are able to address life’s obstacles in an open and honest way is directly related to our ability to manifest our highest calling and most noble purpose—to love. Set on a country estate between 1809 and the present-day, Stoppard’s masterpiece explores mathematics, landscape gardening, Byron, and the undeniable power of the human heart.
