    It’s a cold January in 1941 at a clinic for disabled children in Nazi Germany. But now, instead of helping them, the doctor is sending them off to their deaths. Much respected Bishop von Galen visits to challenge the state-supported program of murder with unpredictable results. Based on a real figure who successfully protested against the appalling policy of eugenics, this play asks profound questions about how we should value all people, whatever their disabilities or limitations.

    14 was inspired by the true-life event in May 2001 in which a smuggler abandoned 30 Mexicans crossing the desert, resulting in 14 deaths from dehydration. It is a starting point for exploration to investigate the complexities of people living on the border, not giving answers but raising difficult questions. The mosaic of flawed and struggling people included emphasize the importance of investigating this topic in a way that calls not only for action and conversation but, ultimately, for a collective solution.

    A detective and his partner search for Supernova (the villain), who hates The Fantastic Phenomenon (the hero) so much that he is killing superhero super-fans. The detective's world quickly begins to unravel as he questions his own belief in law and justice and starts to peel back the good-versus-evil veneer, exposing the realities of life and death and the ultimate consequences of trusting those who tell us to "keep the faith." The black-and-white morality of superheroes is turned on its head in this play.

    This play combines both comedy and tragedy in the story of three women—mother, daughter and servant—bound together by blood and loyalty. In this new twist on the Oedipus complex, we take a look at the myth from Jocasta's complex point of view as a wife, devoted mother and conflicted daughter. These are strong and complex women who struggle against their fate—and sometimes one another. But their love and devotion is the link that binds them together in life and death.
