A eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime! While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories of their home-life, the tweens spell their way through a series of words hoping never to hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life-unaffirming “ding” of the bell signifying a spelling error. A riotous ride complete with audience participation. Taken from the website

This rarely seen, late work of Tennessee Williams is the savage, sexually-charged and brutally funny story of three outcasts trapped in an isolated, once elegant Mississippi farmhouse by an encroaching flood. Written during his “dark decade” in the late ’60s, metaphorical and taboo themes of race, gender and human survival are surprisingly current.Taken from the website

Imagine how much money it would take to make you happy. Now double it. Then triple it. And just before you get a chance to collect… watch it slip away like mercury down the drain. That’s the jumping-off point for writer D.B. Levin’s ruthless drama ONE STEP OVER. Taken from the website

In a dimly lit rehearsal room in St. Petersburg during the winter of 1905, Anton Chekhov’s widow, the actress Olga Knipper, along with two other actors, await the rest of the cast and their director while unseen striking workers are being gunned down in the streets by the tsarist regime. A politically charged, haunting interrogation of theater and the revolutionary impulse, Neva savagely examines the relationship between theater and historical context in this ominous and tightly crafted ensemble work that allows a palpable terror to creep through the theater walls.
