    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

    This new translation and adaptation of Molière's classic comedy, The Miser, is set in the opulent court of King Louis XIV at the Palace of Versailles. Zeder takes us back to a time when this classic play was first conceived—when actors struggled to remember their newly minted lines and bits of business were improvised for the first time. In this raucous telling, she captures the comic power of this cautionary tale of misguided monetary mania and defines the priceless power of the creative artist and the alchemy of theatre. 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

    ¡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
