Sara and Tom are young lovers living in New York City, together chasing the artists' dream. When that dream starts to feel less and less like a real future, Sara leaves bad boy Tom and starts a quiet, uptown life with good guy Michael. But longing eventually creeps into her sensible life, and Sara starts playing with fire when she reignites her past passion in a tempestuous affair with Tom.

Billy is the only deaf member of a loving yet dysfunctional family who raised him as part of the hearing world. When Billy meets Sylvia, a young woman on the brink of deafness, he finally starts to learn when it means to be heard. With insight, humor, and an eclectic cast of characters, Tribes questions how we define community, family, and belonging.

Directed by Scott Behrend
March 4 - 28, 2021
A brilliant, reclusive writer is diagnosed with dementia and must rely on an untrustworthy caretaker to tell her final story--an autobiography. For the fiercely private Alida, such dependence doesn't come easily, but in order to make peace with her future she must first go into the dark woods of her past. Dark, playful, and mysterious, this play on the modern fairy tale shatters notions of language, loneliness, and identity.
AT HOME AT THE ZOO
By Edward Albee
Directed by John Hurley
April 22 - May 16, 2021
At Home at the Zoo combines Edward Albee's classic work The Zoo Story with a prequel, Homelife, to tell the story of a book editor, his wife, and a man named Jerry. Peter and Ann are stuck in a monotonous marriage. To escape their failed and brutal attempts at communicating, Peter takes a book to his favorite bench in Central Park but soon finds himself confronted by the probing questions of a stranger intent on claiming the bench for himself. Darkly humorous and provocative, this seminal work explores the balance of love and cruelty in everyday life.
