As this delightful 18th century style rom-com opens, a young woman prepares to meet her betrothed, whom she does not know. In order to get a better idea of the type of person she’s marrying, she dons a disguise and trades places with her servant. Unbeknownst to her, her fiancé has had the same idea, and traded places with his valet! Joyous and charming, Marivaux’s witty play pits the two false servants against the two false masters in a high-stakes game of love and chance

Set in the late 1800s, In the Next Room (or the vibrator play) is a provocative, touching and marvelously entertaining story. Dr. Givings harnesses the powers of the modern electrical age, providing a unique cure for relieving female "hysteria"; a device that provides women with a certain something missing from their lives. Nominated for 3 Tony Awards, Sarah Ruhl's acclaimed play is as satisfying as it is emotionally charged.

Adapted from John Irving's bestselling novel, A Prayer for Owen Meany is a sweeping saga of friendship, destiny and the miracle of faith. Set against the backdrop of societal upheaval in America during the 1960s, this engaging, heartwarming story recounts the unbreakable bond between John and Owen. In Simon Bent's stage adaptation, A Prayer for Owen Meany becomes an extraordinary and unforgettable event.

This blistering play by David Pownall is set in an anteroom in the Kremlin in 1948 during the Soviet Musicians' Union Conference. Stalin and Zhadanov, preparing to enforce their new policy for the Arts, summon Prokofiev and Shostakovich, two leading Russian composers, to discuss how their music should best serve the Soviet state. The discussion becomes personal, tempers rise, as do the stakes, with vast and far-reaching implications for artists and indeed citizens of oppressive regimes everywhere.
