A Piece of My Heart

May 31 - June 24 | Ruth Nagel Jones Theatre

This is a powerful, true drama of six women who went to Vietnam: five nurses and a country western singer booked by an unscrupulous agent to entertain the troops. The play portrays each young woman before, during and after her tour in the war-torn jungle and ends as each leaves a personal token at The Wall in Washington.

Goodnight Desdemona (Good Morning Juliet)

May 26 – June 26, 2016 | Ruth Nagel Jones Theatre

In this exuberant comedy – and original revision of Shakespeare’s Othello and Romeo and Juliet –Constance Ledbelly, a drab and dusty academic, deciphers a cryptic manuscript she believes to be the original source for the tragedies, and is transported into the plays themselves. She visits Juliet and Desdemona, has a hand in saving them from the deaths the Bard had planned for them, and finds out what these women are all about. In true Shakespearean spirit, Constance plunders the plays and creates something new, all the while engaging in a personal voyage of self- discovery. With an abundance of twists, fights, dances, seductions and wild surprises, the play is an absolute joy of theatricality – not surprisingly, considering the author who created it.

The Liar

January 11 – February 4, 2018 | Ruth Nagel Jones Theatre

Paris, 1643. Dorante is a charming young man newly arrived in the capital, and he has but a single flaw: He cannot tell the truth. In quick succession he meets Cliton, a manservant who cannot tell a lie, and falls in love with Clarice, a charming young woman whom he unfortunately mistakes for her friend Lucrece. From these, plus more misunderstandings and a series of breathtakingly intricate lies springs one of the Western world’s greatest comedies, a sparkling urban romance as fresh as the day Pierre Corneille wrote it, brilliantly adapted for today by All In The Timing’s David Ives.

Reuniting much of the cast of the multiple IRNE award-nominated Three Sisters, director Marta Rainer is proud to bring this story to life together with critically acclaimed company members: Angela Bilkic, Danny Bolton, Caitlin Graham, Charles Linshaw, John Kinsherf, Ariela Nazar-Rosen, Dan Prior, Samuel Warton and the design team; David Towlun (Set Design), Chelsea Kerl (Costume Design), and George Cooke (Sound Design).



January 17 - February 10, 2019 | Ruth Nagel Jones Theatre

Lisa Kron's carefully orchestrated "multicharacter exploration of issues of health and illness" (according to her grant proposal!) is disrupted when her actual mother appears on stage with her and proves to be considerably more interesting to the actors hired by Lisa than the play Lisa wrote...leading us all to contemplate in deeply felt hilarity and chaos: what brings wellness to our community, to our relationships, and to ourselves?

This Tony-nominated play was described in the NY Times as one that "keeps surprising itself with glimpses of an emotional depth, both murky and luminous, that goes beyond any tidy narrative." Come be flummoxed, delighted and lifted up by the Broadway debut of the Tony winner (Book of a Musical) for FUN HOME!

This Girl Laughs, This Girl Cries, This Girl Does Nothing

June 6 - 30, 2019 | Ruth Nagel Jones Theatre

Triplet sisters are left in a forest by a woodcutter father and forced to find their own way in the world. From this fairytale beginning, three resolutions are made -- one sister walks one way to find purpose, one the other to find adventure, and the third stays right where she is, to create a home. Years later, having circled a globe and fought vikings, toppled lighthouses, tamed wilds and achieved greatness, the three meet again, as women. A moving and irresistibly charming modern-day fable for young and old.
