    Van Gogh's life is narrated through his letters to his brother and through his brother's memories. The excitement and color of Van Gogh's life and art enhance this production through the projection of images that are easily handled and carefully cued to add impact to the words. The total effect is dazzling, yet this remains an especially easy show to present, provided you have a capable actor for the single role.

    Every milestone in life has a story. But there is one milestone story we seldom tell—the story of our experience of being present for the death of a loved one. Stay With Me Awhile is a compilation of vigil stories from across cultures, religions, political views and socio-economic circumstances that were collected over a seven-year period. Each story was entirely unique, and many of the scenes described were snapshots of lifelong relationships played out as the end of life approached. Learn More

    In 1980, Molly Rush, a Pittsburgh housewife and mother of six, walked into a G.E. plant and took a hammer to the nose cone of a nuclear warhead in protest of the buildup of our nuclear arsenal. She and her fellow activists went to trial to sound the alarm, and the world was pulled back from the brink of nuclear annihilation for the time being. Told with humor and love, Molly’s Hammer shines a light on how the choice of ordinary people to take action is what is needed to save our world.

    Two men of honor both claim the right to Norway’s crown, but wily Bishop Nicholas stymies their dreams, pursuing his own mysterious ends. This lean, swift-paced version of Ibsen’s turbulent tale dissects the timeless motives that the political and powerful must ever ask themselves—do I do what I do for the greater good or for personal glory?—and explores the nature of power and personal ambition, the obligation of leadership and the search for national unity.

    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.
