    The ColumistTHE COLUMNIST by David Auburn

    Production dates: Oct 2-18, 2015

    In mid-century America, newspaper columnists are kings — and Joseph Alsop wears the biggest crown. Joe sits at the nexus of Washington life: beloved, feared, and courted in equal measure by the very people whose careers he determines. But as the sixties dawn and America undergoes dizzying change, the intense political dramas Joe has been throwing his weight around in — supporting the war in Vietnam and Soviet containment, criticizing student activism — come to bear a profound personal cost. A play from the Pulitzer and Tony Award-winning author of PROOF.

    The Western Front, Christmas, 1914. Out of the violence a silence, then a song. A German soldier steps into No Man’s Land, singing “Stille Nacht.” Thus begins an extraordinary night of camaraderie, music, peace. A remarkable true story, told in the words and songs of the men who lived it.

    PrintNIGHT WATCH by Lucille Fletcher

    Production dates: Jan 8-24, 2016

    Elaine Wheeler, troubled by unsettling memories and vague fears, suffers from insomnia and appears to be close to becoming unhinged as one suspicious event after another takes place. From their Manhattan townhouse, her husband tries to comfort her, but when he steps away for a moment, Elaine screams as she sees (or believes she sees) the body of a dead man in the window across the way. The police are called, but find nothing except an empty chair. Elaine’s terror grows as shortly thereafter she sees still another body — this time a woman’s — but by now the police are skeptical and pay no heed to her frantic pleas.

    SlowgirlSLOWGIRL by Greg Pierce

    Production dates:  Feb 26-Mar 13, 2016

    Sterling, a former lawyer turned recluse in the Costa Rican jungle, is surprised by the arrival of his 17-year-old niece, Becky, whom he barely knows.  She is a talkative high-schooler whose parents sent her out of town for a week of obscurity in the wilderness. Unaccustomed to having constant company, Sterling slowly acquires a sense of Becky’s situation, which is disconcertingly similar to his own retreat from the opinions of others, and both realize their own remorse over moral negligences.

    PrintTHE TRIP TO BOUNTIFUL by Horton Foote

    Production dates: Apr 15-May 1, 2016

    Carrie Watts is living the twilight of her life trapped in an apartment in 1940’s Houston, Texas, with a controlling daughter-in-law and a hen-pecked son. Her fondest wish — just once before she dies — is to revisit Bountiful, the small Texas town of her youth which she still refers to as “home.” But her son, Ludies, is too concerned for her health to allow her travel alone, and her petty daughter-in-law, Jessie Mae, insists they don’t have money to squander on bus tickets. This prompts “escape” attempts each month, which coincide with the arrival of Mrs. Watts’ Social Security check. Then, Mrs. Watts makes a successful escape, and one last trip home.

    Last GasLAST GAS by John Cariani

    Nat Paradis is a Red Sox-loving, part-time single dad who manages Paradis’ Last Convenient Store, the last convenient place to get gas — or anything — before the Canadian border to the north and the North Maine Woods to the west. When an old flame returns to town, Nat gets a chance to rekindle a romance he gave up on years ago. But sparks fly as he’s forced to choose between new love and old. LAST GAS takes a hilarious and heartbreakingly hard look at love lost and found, and what it means to “get back to happy.”
