    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

    Emily desperately wants to play the lead in her high school's production of Romeo and Juliet. Instead, she gets a one-line, four-word role. None the less, she tells her parents (who will be out of town during the performance) that she got the lead, and suddenly, things spin way out of control. Mom and Dad cancel their vacation plans and invite every relative they can round up to come visit and see their daughter play Juliet. This outlandishly funny and very touching play is about the roles we all play—in theatre and in life. Learn More

    Black Elk lived the experience of the Native American people from the moment before white people entered his world through the end of Indian independence at the massacre of Wounded Knee. His unique eloquence and that of his cousin Crazy Horse make this play a very special event. The play moves quickly and with mounting excitement through this history and through a vision of life as it once was for the Indian, and as it could be for all people. Learn More
