  1. I Love to Eat

    I Love to Eat

    By James Still.

    Larger than life (literally and metaphorically), American culinary icon James Beard was a complex, entertaining, beloved and frustrating friend and mentor to many. Openly gay even though his primary audience was middle-America housewives, Beard always kept his phone number listed and famously took calls from anyone who needed a little cooking advice. I Love to Eat invites you to meet “the face and belly of American gastronomy” in this solo play that imagines a late night in Beard’s home. Learn More

    The Man She Was

    • 6 to 24m., 4 to 18w., 1 to 20 either gender.
    • 80 min.
    This gender-bending historical drama is based on Emma Edmond's memoir when she enlists as Frank Thompson and serves as a male nurse, spy and soldier during the Civil War. A "don't ask, don't tell" moment speaks clearly to the complexities of today's gender-fluid culture and the final life and death actions of the play give the story a Shakespearean feel, as she faces and accepts her own gender identity.
