The Last Days of Judas Iscariot
The Last Days of Judas Iscariot

A holy courtroom drama and a brazenly irreverent farce
Oct 9, 10, 15, 16, 17 at 7:30 pm
Oct 16 at 10 pm

Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Stephen Adly Guirgis’ time bending, darkly comic play re-examines the plight and fate of the New Testament’s most infamous and unexplained betrayal with his signature fierce questioning blended with poetic street talk. Featuring a cast of saints and sinners ranging from Jesus, Saint Peter, and Mother Theresa to Satan himself, this play is not afraid to question everything we think we know about religion, betrayal, hope, and forgiveness.

[Due to strong language these performances are recommended for mature audiences only]

Love in the time of frostbite

Welcome to Almost, Maine.  A town so far north it’s almost not in the United States.  One cold, clear Friday night in the middle of winter, while the northern lights hover in the sky above, Almost’s residents find themselves falling in and out of love in the strangest ways.  Knees are bruised.  Hearts are broken.  Love is lost, found, and confounded.  And life for the people of Almost, Maine will never be the same.

A whimsical and endearing approach to the joys and perils of romance

Hedda Gabler
Hedda Gabler

Henrik Ibsen’s classic femme fatale masterpiece
March 4, 5, 10, 11, 12 at 7:30 pm
March 11 at 10 am 

With a distinguished father, a reputable husband, and a respectable home, Hedda’s life is beyond reproach.  But she is a woman who is struggling with her identity, objectified and trapped by convention in a life she doesn’t want; and her only way out might be deadly. Ibsen’s classic drama of passion and desperation is about investigating what it is to be alive, and follows a dangerously irresistible woman as she rushes headlong towards a disaster that will embrace all those who have fallen fatally under her spell.

Nikolai Gogol’s classic comedy
Adapted by Jeffrey Hatcher

Anton Antonovich, a mayor in small-town Russia, is in the midst of a crisis.  A government official is on his way to inspect his district and, in Anton’s own words, “this is a disaster!”  The streets haven’t been swept for months, there are chickens in the courthouse and Anton himself has been somewhat liberal with the mayoral accounts.  The inspector is only too willing to overlook these misdemeanors in exchange for the odd generous bribe.  But is he quite who he says he is or will Anton and his band of buffoons finally get what’s coming to them?  This comedy of errors satirizes bureaucracy and corruption and was described as “The greatest play in the Russian language” by Vladimir Nabokov.
