The Motherf#@ker with the Hat by Stephen Adly Guirgis

September 15, 16, 21, 22, & 23

Struggles with addiction, friendship, love and the challenges of adulthood are at the center of the story.  Jackie, a petty drug dealer, is just out of prison and trying to stay clean.  He's also still in love with his coke-addicted childhood sweetheart, Veronica.  Ralph D. is Jackie's too-smooth, slightly slippery sponsor.  He's married to the bitter and disaffected Victoria, who, by the way, has the hots for Jackie.  And then there's Julio, Jackie's cousin ... a stand-up, "stand by me" kind of guy.

 

It Can’t Happen Here adapted from the Sinclair Lewis novel by Tony Taccone & Bennett Cohen

November 10, 11, 16, 17, & 18

A cautionary dark satire about the fragility of democracy and how fascism can take hold even in the land of liberty.  The play follows the ascent of a demagogue who becomes president of the United States by promising to return the country to greatness.  Witnessing the new president's tyranny from the sidelines is a liberal, middle-class newspaper editor who trust the system will fix itself - until he ends up in a prison camp.  Sinclair Lewis' 1935 novel gets a fresh update in this adaptation that examines what brings a citizenry to the point of sacrificing its own freedom and how a courageous fewcan prevail to overcome the fall.

 

A Dog’s House by Micah Schraft

Lungs by Duncan Macmillan

The world is getting hotter, there's unrest overseas- the seas themselves aren't very calm- and one couple is thinking about having a child.  LUNGS is a smart and funny drama that follows a couple through the surprising lifecycle of their relationship as they grapple with questions of family and change, hope, betrayal, happenstance, and the terrible pain that you can only cause the people you love.

Evil Dead the Musical by George Reinblatt

May 11, 12, 17, 18, & 19

Five college students go to an abandoned cabin in the woods, and accidentally unleash an evil force that turns them all into demons.  It's all up to Ash (a housewares employee, turned demon-killing hero), and his trusty chainsaw to save the day.  Blood flies.  Limbs are dismembered.  Demons tells bad jokes ... and all to music.  Is it scary?  No.  Is it gory?  No.  This is a pure comedy start to finish.  And with this combination of blood, jokes, cheesy effects, and really awesome musical numbers, EVIL DEAD THE MUSICAL is unlike any live show you've ever seen.
