So... how many people have you slept with?
Hal discovers that his girlfriend is more experienced than he thought... and then he really screws things up. Swingers, posers, and sexual explorers collide in this hilariously raw and real portrait of our private lives. A brand new play from an emerging American playwright!
Mary Queen of Scots rots in jail, but rebellion is brewing. The exiled monarch, a threat to her cousin Queen Elizabeth, pins her hopes on a secret band of conspirators. Scheming politicians, a double agent, and an honest jailer play their parts, and soon the two powerful women will meet, each desperate to defend her country.
Peter Oswald's vibrant adaptation of Friedrich Schiller's Romantic masterpiece explores the price of freedom and the passion of defiance.

Shipwrecks, sirens, and sex goddesses meet cannibalism, death, and revenge. Acclaimed solo artist Charlie Bethel (Beowulf, Gilgamesh) re-imagines Homer's famous tale in a faithful yet accessible performance. Voyage across land and sea, through the underworld, and to the top of Mt. Olympus as Odysseus seeks his homeland and the arms of his loving wife.

Together, they fight to defend the Queen's honor and save the lady d'Artagnan loves -- but an intriguing woman known as "Milady" has other plans for him. This crisp new adaptation of Alexandre Dumas' popular romance is a fast-paced, swashbuckling adventure for the stage.
