    Haunting and hilarious, this play takes a strange and wondrous trip through a dozen "post-modern Elizabethan" plays, poems and songs.

    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.

    A civil war has ended. Will there be peace or new rebellion? Each chorus member argues the side of one of the characters, hoping to bring peace to the war-torn land. Each individual faces the choice: should I do what I feel is right or stay silent and safe? This adaptation can be set anywhere there is civil strife—ancient Greece, modern America, a medieval castle, the inner city, the future, any time and place that speaks to you.

    Antigone must battle her uncle, King Creon, for the right to bury her dead brother. While most versions view Antigone as a righteous heroine, this version takes a fresh look at her rigidity as an equal contributor to the story's devastating ending. The path taken here—vengeance will breed vengeance—is a shattering lesson for our times. Learn More

    Cyrano! His wit is as sharp as his sword, the enormity of his talent, intellect and passion matched only by the enormity of his, well, nose. The uniquely endowed protagonist is given a fresh face in this poignant and playful paean to panache, written in rhyming couplets. Romance rules the day in this story of his classic love triangle with the exquisite Roxane and the handsome and earnest, but verbally challenged, Christian. Learn More
