2023-2024 Production Season



These Shining Lives

By Melanie Marnich

These Shining Lives chronicles the strength and determination of women considered expendable in their day, exploring their true story and its continued resonance. Catherine and her friends are dying, it's true; but theirs is a story of survival in its most transcendent sense, as they refuse to allow the company that stole their health to kill their spirits - or endanger the lives of those who come after them.

Leveling up

By Deborah Zoe Laufer

Two years after graduation, three college roommates are still living in the same house and spending more time playing video games than moving through the outside world. When a big fight sparks a competition among them to "get a real life," all are propelled into the game of growing up. As the artificial stakes of the virtual world melt into real consequences, they discover that adulthood may not be the hero quest they wanted, but perhaps it's the one they need.
