Told from his perspective, this play follows Bobby from his announcement to enter the presidential race on March 16, 1968, to his last speech on June 4th. The causes for which he crusaded and policies he championed are remarkably relevant and prescient of the politics and concerns of today. The play contains many of Kennedy’s most famous and impactful speeches, as well as his private apprehensions and more personal, less publicized events. Learn More

    After spending 12 years in St. Elizabeths Hospital for incompetency, literary lion and ferocious anti-Semite Ezra Pound faces the terrifying prospect of being released. At first, Pound’s treatment by a young psychiatrist, Ann Polley, seems promising, but then the techniques become disturbing and Ann’s true purpose is revealed. Pound explores whether words can be as powerful as actions, whether revenge can be just, and whether sanity is possible when we’re made to see the world as it is and not as we would have it.
