Debate: An Improvised Comedy

Directed by Anders Peterson
October 20 - 30

Finally, a Presidential debate focused on issues real Americans care about. This year, our candidates have solutions for any and all problems facing America, be it phones without headphone jacks or bad Uber drivers. Each solution comes from the heart, because they’re improvised on spot. ‘Debate’ satirizes the pageantry and problems of Presidential debates in a brand new way each night.

The Complete Works of William Shakespeare Abridged

By Adam Long, Daniel Singer, and Jess Winfield
Directed by Aaron Jin
December 1 - 11

In a world of dry, vomitless academia, how do we turn The Complete Works of William Shakespeare into something fun? In December 2016, three actors come together to accomplish the colossal task of giving you all 1280 pages of Shakespeare’s genius works in 90 minutes of unadulterated fun, and it looks like Titus Andronicus as a cooking show, Hamlet done three times faster and backwards, and a night of bad wigs, props in the air, men in tights, and more! Join these three preeminent Shakespearean scholars on a wild ride of piteous misadventures through the works of the bard. If you love Shakespeare, this play is for you; if you hate Shakespeare, this play is made for you.

By Euripides
Directed by Chris Mowers
Translated by Ruby Blondell
February 23 - March 5

Foreigner. Woman. Outsider. When Medea abandons her father's house and leaves her homeland, she does so urged on by her love for Jason and his oaths of loyalty to her. When those oaths prove false, love turns to hatred and married bliss turns to bloody revenge. This is the story of what happens when an extraordinary woman finds herself forced to take action against a system which denies her agency based solely on her gender and her nationality. With sentiments that resonate as surprisingly modern and topical in a volatile political climate, Euripides invites us to examine the consequences of a woman, an immigrant, breaking out of the role which a patriarchal society has forced her to play.


By Steve Yockey
Directed by Jake Lemberg
April 13 - 23

In Wolves, two men's folie à deux overtakes their small apartment and spills out onto city streets. When ex-boyfriend Jack brings a strange man home to woodland-obsessed Ben’s apartment, the Narrator can barely keep a lid on the looming violence. This “deconstruction” of the Little Red Riding Hood story is a darkly comic, predatory fairy tale for adults that explores the conflation of sex and fear in modern culture, the comfort of lava lamps, and the dangers of a handy axe.

Spring Awakening

Directed by Isabel Martin
May 18 - 28

The winner of eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical, told by Duncan Sheik and Steven Sater through what Entertainment Weekly called, "the most gorgeous Broadway score this decade," Spring Awakening explores the journey from adolescence to adulthood with a poignancy and passion that is illuminating and unforgettable.
