Or,

by Liz Duffy

Or,

Set over the course of a single evening, Aphra Behn–poet, actress, spy, and one of the first professional female playwrights of the Restoration–has the opportunity to land her first commission for a professional company if she can deliver her play by dawn. Complicating this task are an array of lovers and rivals, from a rogue-spy to a blossoming ingenue to the king himself, vying for her time and affections. With echoes of Restoration comedy, quick-change farce, a dash or two of Tom Stoppard, and the sexual revolution of the 1960’s, Or, is a little valentine to love in the theatre.

The Realistic Joneses

by Will Eno

The Realistic Joneses

Meet Jennifer and Bob. They’re the Joneses. Meet Pony and John. They’re also the Joneses. They’re next door neighbors. Keeping up with them can feel awfully familiar in this hilarious and humane look at how we live. Literate and slyly hilarious, this award-winning play dives deep below the surface with subtle grace.

Mr. Kolpert

by David Dieselmann

Mr. Kolpert

What do a mysterious trunk, an Orwellian pizza ordering system, architectural design, tiramisu, Marilyn Monroe, Goofy, Bill Clinton, chaos theory, ropes, gags, and the world’s worst boss have in common?  You’ll find out in a play that Variety described as “a wicked treat for the morbidly inclined—a bonbon filled with arsenic.” One part Albee, one part Hitchcock, one part Tarantino, Mr. Kolpert is a play we’ve been dying to produce since day one. Comedy doesn’t come much blacker or better than this.

The New Electric Ballroom

by Enda Walsh

The New Electric Ballroom

The Roller Royle. “His quiff? Gravity defying. His stance? All American.” There wasn’t a heart that didn’t skip a beat when his rhythmic hips undulated and those generous lips parted to croon–making all the ladies swoon. He won the “admiration of any man with manhood” and with just a wink and a whisper slayed hearts. He was the Elvis of Ireland, the James Dean of music. He was The Roller Royle. And one night, in a sleepy Irish town filled with gossip and fish, he forever changed the lives of three sisters. The New Electric Ballroom is a coiled, glitter-dusted fable about the stories that come to define us.
