Cohesion Theatre Company is proud to announce the third production of their 2017/2018 season and their first ever repertory production. Continuing to explore the season theme of 'E Pluribus Unum,' the shows in repertory will utilize the same diverse cast to tell two seemingly very different stories, La Llorona by Cecelia Raker and The Orphan Sea by Caridad Svich. Despite the plays' notable differences, it is the hope of Cohesion that these stories in conversation with one another will inspire discussion and thought long after leaving the theater.
