Light in the Darkness

By Daniel Talbott

October 12-November 17, 2018

Directed by Andrew Klaus Vineyard

Eli is 17, out, and a budding photographer in San Francisco. After his father's death, Eli and his mother move to Iowa to begin a new life. A flirtation with a popular high school jock holds potential for real love, but Eli is haunted by a previous relationship and by the legacy of his parents' marriage and his father's death. Slipping is a love story for the modern age, a powerful evening of theater that reminds us that coming out is only the first step in the journey to finding your true self.

Tragedy: a tragedy

By Will Eno

February 8-March 16

Directed by Sarah Armitage

This just in: the sun has set. Will it ever rise again? We're not sure but that won't stop us from talking about it. A crack team of journalists is on the scene to bring you the story, even if there isn't one. Will Eno's hilarious, one of a kind play skewers the never ending modern news cycle while capturing the underlying human need to apply order to an increasingly absurd world.

In Trousers

Book, Lyrics and Music by William Finn

April 26- May 25, 2019

Directed by Paul Angelo

Co-Production with Staged!

From Pulitzer Prize winner William Finn comes this gem of a show from 1979 in which we are first introduced to the characters that would be immortalized in Falsettos. Marvin is a husband and a father struggling with his desire to be with men. Over the course of this adventurous evening we are introduced to three of the major women in Marvin's life: his high school sweetheart, an unforgettable teacher and his wife to whom he must ultimately reveal his true self. In Trousers marks Defunkt's first ever musical production, a collaboration with Staged!
