    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

    ¡Bocón! tells the story of 12-year-old Miguel who flees a repressive military regime in Central America for Los Angeles. A natural storyteller and irrepressible "big mouth" or bocón, Miguel loses his voice when his parents are taken and begins a metaphorical journey north to the City of Angels. Along the way, he finds his voice and the courage to cross the border to a new life. Miguel's story is relevant to immigrant children from all parts of the world, and to any child who is learning the many meanings of finding one's own "voice." Learn More

    This one-act comedy retells the myth in which Hades, god of death, kidnaps Persephone, goddess of life and spring. But while Persephone is usually presented as the sad-eyed queen of the underworld, here she is a happy breath of spring that makes life glitter wherever she is—even in Hades. In addition to the comic conflicts surrounding the situation, however, there is a deeper theme of the relation of life and death. This coupling is significant, since life and death are in fact inseparable, inevitably linked together. In this insoluble link there is also a hint of the nature of real love. Learn More
