A profound and moving memory play that finds transcendentalist Henry David Thoreau reflecting on his life and experiences as he sits in jail for refusing to pay a tax that may fund the Mexican-American War, The Night Thoreau Spent in Jail digs into history to question how much one person can do to change the world and how much one action can matter.

By Sophocles

With the land ravaged by plague and pestilence, Oedipus the King of Thebes takes the full responsibility of saving his land and his people on himself. Searching through the past for answers and unraveling the mystery of his own life, Oedipus sets himself on a course that will either save his Kingdom or destroy everything he has achieved.

By Jason Burkett
September 13-21

At the Saltwater research lab in Seattle, WA, a team of scientists debate whether the discovery of a limitless food source will save or destroy the world. Based on the philosophies of Daniel Quinn, Saving the World is a mad, manic, irreverent, relentless, and hysterical absurdist comedy that questions if our culture is capable is sustaining itself, and how much our own decisions can impact the entire world.

by Aaron Sorkin
October 25-November 2
