In this inventive, contemporary adaptation by resident playwright Jonathan Yukich, a troupe of actors tour visitors through the present day village of Sleepy Hollow, New York.  Soon the spooked guests begin to suspect that there might be more truth to the spine tingling legend than they realized!  In this thrilling retelling of the classic story, the past clashes with the present, the young square off with the dead and the Headless Horseman rides again!  Bring the whole family on Family and Friends weekend!

 

No Exit  by Jean Paul Satre, directed by Laura Donovan
Thurs-Sat, December 3-5 at 7:30 pm and Sun, December 6 at 2 pm

"What happens when a murderess, a coward, and a seductress are trapped together in hell? For Estelle, Garcin, and Inez, hell isn't the expected fire and brimstone torture, but rather, "hell is other people." Forced to endlessly replay the choices that caused them eternal damnation, the three act as each others’ judges and psychological torturers in a cycle that will last for eternity."


SPRING SEMESTER

Fefu and Her Friends by Maria Irene Fornes
Thurs-Sat, February 25-27 at 7:30 pm and Sun, February 28 at 2 pm

A country home in 1933.  Seven women sharing their thoughts and feelings.  A gun.  A murder!  With scenes simultaneously played in multiple locations throughout the theatre, this 1977 feminist classic “challenges our preconceptions about life and the theatre through boldly drawn women, temporarily divorced from relationships, trying to sort out the ambiguities of their lives.”  (Jules Arron)

 

Hereafter by Jenny Daniels '16
Hereafter is a masked retelling of Shakespeare's Macbeth, a bloody exploration of violent love, deeds and ambitions, the fickleness of fate and the nighmarish depths to which even the most noble minds can be dragged.
Thurs-Sat, April 14-17 at 7:30 pm and Sun, April 18 at 2 pm
