Together they must come to terms with what it means to be cool, what is uncool and why it is so important to simply be yourself.

    At the end of the 15th century, the tiny town of Frogsham musters its dubious resources to mount the Corpus Christi play of Noah and the Flood. This medieval play-within-a-play presents a teeming town full of characters who mirror their biblical pageant counterparts. It provides a humorous glimpse of 15th-century stagecraft and the timeless panic of performers who must go on before the show is ready. Learn More

    Young, handsome Harold is married to elderly, wheelchair-ridden Elizabeth because of that age-old attraction—money. So naturally, Harold plans to murder her and inherit all that glorious money. He convinces Elizabeth that he can no longer tend to the big house by himself, and she reluctantly agrees to let him hire the people he claims are so urgently needed: a nurse/companion, a housekeeper, a cook and a groundskeeper. Who-done-it? Your audience will be shocked when they finally find out the answer. Learn More

    A company of players takes the audience through a kaleidoscope in which one episode dissolves into another like an absurd dream. Each episode lets you see some aspect of yourself as a perceptive artist sees you, and the view is not always pleasant. What is the "asylum?" Is it the world of "normal" people, or the rest of us? The feeling of Asylum is one of space rather than a stage, a nameless place rather than a specific location; technical theatricality must be minimized. Learn More
