Three Tall Women
by Edward Albee
Directed by Wayne Salomon
September 23 – October 9, 2016
Winner of the 1994 Pulitzer Prize
“One of America’s finest playwrights. Edward Albee offers a new play so good it can only exist on the stage. A perfect illustration of why theater is an indispensable art.” —NY Times.
“An extraordinarily brilliant play. THREE TALL WOMEN is the best, most forceful play [Albee] has given us…To be truthful about death is admirable, but to be elegant at the same time is almost Mozartian.” —NY Post.

“Gripping drama” – The New York Times

The Way We Get By
by Neil LaBute
Directed by Lee Anne Mathews
February 10-26, 2017
“[LaBute] has done something unique to his brand of well-established playwriting genre; that is of the darkly cynical variety. It actually feels good in our ever wary world to see that problems, no matter how challenging, can be worked out and realized without the usual.—Huffington Post.
“…sexy…[LaBute] relishes the art of thwarting expectations.” —NY Times.
“One-night stands often produce repercussions, but few are as emotionally fraught as the one depicted. —Hollywood Reporter
“His sometimes brutal wit has long been accompanied by an equally fierce moral curiosity…if we see a struggle in the context of a world where everyone can seem to be in everyone else’s business—especially when it’s trivial—the focus is on two individuals trying to assess their own capacity for courage.” —USA Today.
August: Osage County
By Tracy Letts
Directed by Bobby Miller
April 14-30, 2017
Winner of the 2008 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award.
“A fraught, densely plotted saga of an Oklahoma clan in a state of near-apocalyptic meltdown. Fiercely funny and bitingly sad…[a] turbo-charged tragicomedy…” —NY Times.
“In Tracy Letts’ ferociously entertaining play, the American dysfunctional family drama comes roaring into the twenty-first century with eyes blazing, nostrils flaring and fangs bared, laced with corrosive humor so darkly delicious and ghastly that you’re squirming in your seat even as you’re doubled-over laughing.” —Variety.
“It’s a great big exhilarating gift.” —NY Daily News.
“This is a play that will leave us laughing and wondering, shuddering and smiling, long after the house lights come back on.” —NY Newsday.
“This original and corrosive black comedy deserves a seat at the dinner table with the great American family plays.” —Time Magazine.
