What's wrong with nine-year-old Jesse? He can't sit still, he curses, he raps, and you can't get him into—or out of—pajamas. His teacher thinks it's Attention Deficit Disorder. Dad says, "He's just a boy!" And Mama's on a quest for answers. Is Jesse dysfunctional, or just different? Don't we all have ADD, to some degree? She consults a psychologist, a homeopath, a neuropsychologist, and an environmental physician. She talks to neighbors, whose kids have their own diagnoses. A psychiatrist prescribes Ritalin for Jesse, but surely a pill can't solve all of his problems. Throughout, Jesse is an offstage voice, becoming louder and angrier, but he is in danger of fading away. And his parents' marriage is in peril. Everyone is distracted, even the actors—they're breaking character! A hilarious, provocative, and poignant look at a modern family and an epidemic dilemma: Are we so tuned into our 24/7 info-rich world that we've tuned out what really matters?

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
Black Box Theatre

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.

The Government Inspector
The Government Inspector

Nikolai Gogol’s classic comedy
Adapted by Jeffrey Hatcher

Main Stage Theatre

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.
