SOMETHING YOU DID
August 28 -- October 3
By Willy Holtzman

A stellar student from a good family, Alison Moulton is serving her third decade behind bars for an anti-war action she participated in as member of a ‘60s radical group that resulted in the death of an African American police officer. Now petitioning for parole, she's visited by the daughter of the slain officer. But her fiercest detractor comes in a former comrade turned neo-conservative pundit, media star and best-selling author. Gene Biddle (Rick Foucheux) argues against his former partner while implicating another group member, now a current public official residing in the White House, for a past association with the radical terrorist group. Featuring Associate Artist-in-Residence, Rick Foucheux

THE ODD COUPLE
October 23 - November 28
By Neil Simon • Directed by Jerry Whiddon

In this Tony Award-winning comic masterpiece, Neil Simon created two of the most memorable characters in the history of Broadway and broadcast television. With the help of four high-strung poker buddies and two British biddies coming in from upstairs, slovenly Oscar tries to mend his recently-divorced friend Felix's broken heart. When the finicky friend moves in, hilarity breaks out.
Featuring Rick Foucheux as Oscar Madison and J. Fred Shiffman as Felix Unger

THE CHOSEN
March 7 - 27
Adapted and directed by Aaron Posner
Based on the novel by Chaim Potok

The much beloved novel of two boys, two fathers, and two very different Jewish communities in Williamsburgh, Brooklyn. Set against the backdrop of WW II, Aaron Posner's award-winning adaptation introduces us to Reuven Malter and Danny Saunders, passionate, intelligent young boys on opposite sides of a baseball game. When Reuven is injured by Danny's errant pitch, a unique friendship is born. Featuring Associate Artist in Residence Rick Foucheux as Reb Saunders

PHOTOGRAPH 51
March 23 - April 24
A New Play by Anna Ziegler • Directed by Daniella Topol

A funny and moving retelling of the unrequited life of Rosalind Franklin, one of the great female scientists of the 20th Century, and her fervid drive to map the contours of the DNA molecule. A chorus of physicists remember the trail-blazing, fiercely independent woman whose most stunning discovery was the beating of her own romantic heart. A beautifully imagined biography for the stage, this home-grown work was winner of the 2008 Stage International Script Competition for Best New Play About Science & Technology.

THE MOSCOWS OF NANTUCKET
May 11 - June 12
By Sam Forman • Directed by Shirley Serotsky

Affluent, anxious and at each other's throats, the Moscovich's attempt some unusual family bonding over a summer weekend in Nantucket. On the agenda are brisket, booze and a blowout confrontation between competing brothers who've avoided each other for years. A fast-paced new American comedy with its heart in Chekhov's country, from the author of Helen Hayes Award nominated The Rise and Fall of Annie Hall.
