  1. Appoggiatura


    Product Code: AM4000

    • Comedy | Drama
    • Middle School | College and Adult | Senior Adults
    • 3m., 3w., 1 or more either gender.
    • 120 min.

    Appoggiatura is a musical term that resembles a grace note. It translates literally as “to lean” or “to support.” And so it is with three closely related Americans who find themselves lost in Venice, Italy, and spend a day wandering through that City of Dreams. Soon, time bends around every corner and the floating city works its mysterious wonders on the trio who encounter lost luggage, the patron saint of heartbreak, two dogs named Sophia and Loren, a violin-playing Vivaldi, street musicians, a singing gondolier, an almost magical 1950s Brownie Box camera and a self-proclaimed “travel guider” named Marco who is terrible at his job but impossible not to love. This is a play about longing and grieving and ghosts and heartbreak, all set against the funny and tender path toward healing. Sometimes you have to get lost so that you might get found.

  2. The House That Jack Built

    The House That Jack Built

    Product Code: HH4000

    • Comedy | Drama
    • High School | College and Adult | Senior Adults
    • 2m., 3w.
    • 105 min.

    A family gathers for Thanksgiving in Vermont just as they always gather for Thanksgiving in Vermont. Some of them fly thousands of miles to be there; others simply walk across the pasture. But it turns out that both trips require their own kind of bravery. The sexiest James Bond, Chekhov’s Seagull, the politics of Attila the Hun, and a drink known as Liquid Baby Ruth all play a part in holding a family together while also holding them back. Sometimes the people who are missing are just as present as the people who gather around the table. The House That Jack Built is a clash of old traditions and new love; empty chairs and the people who threaten to fill them; and a family who prizes open arms, the sweet pursuit of happiness and the mysterious heartbreak that comes with getting what you think you want.

  3. Miranda


    Product Code: MQ9000

    • Drama
    • High School | College and Adult
    • 2m., 3w.
    • 120 min.

    A psychological riddle set in the world’s most explosive region, Miranda is a play about the dedicated women and men who work in the Middle East to secure intelligence and the local citizens who may or may not be willing or able to help them.  Miranda is the mind-bending, existential crisis of a CIA operative who goes by many names. Who is she? What keeps her working in the Middle East after all these years? Why can’t she leave? Whose war is she fighting?  Who are her friends and who is the enemy? Who can she trust and who’s playing whom? What happened to her in Jordan? And how does she now find herself directing a production of Othello in Yemen with teenagers? One teenager, that is. A Yemeni boy is the only local who shows up and wonders if only an American could truly understand the double-crossing Iago in Shakespeare’s play.  Miranda is in pursuit not only for answers to those questions—but also for what those answers might mean about who she was and who she’s become. This is a play that humanizes the CIA while not sugarcoating the moral ambiguity in which it does its job. Miranda weaves a taut, layered story of what happens as operatives become emotionally intertwined in the intimate lives of their assets against the high stakes of the agency’s work.
