    He was born in 1564, but historians lose track of Will Shakespeare until around 1590. This play gleefully jumps in to fill in the gaps of his so-called "lost years." Will is a 21-year-old dreamer, the father of three and quite jobless. His wife is distracted by the amorous attentions of their neighbor. Poverty, lust and gender confusion rock everyone's boat, but, in the end, fortune smiles on the aspiring young poet. Learn More

    In the depths of the Depression, Godfrey, a "forgotten man," takes a job as butler to a family of socialites. Dealing with their eccentricities, alcoholism and general nuttiness, it is Godfrey that rescues them after they go broke. The theme is simple: a job dignifies and provides purpose in life; without it you're a bum on the one hand or an empty socialite on the other. Learn More
