BY ADAM LONG, DANIEL SINGER, JESS WINFIELD
DIRECTED BY TAD JANES

Three guys, one dead playwright and 37 plays in 97 minutes! An irreverent, fast-paced romp through the Bard’s plays that is as clever as it is bawdy and equally pleasing to the Shakespeare aficionado and the novice.

ADAPTED FROM THE GEORGE ORWELL NOVEL BY MICHAEL GENE SULLIVAN

Decades later each woman covets the other’s life, commencing a dangerous game of musical chairs.

A VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE

MAY 25 – JUNE 17

BY ARTHUR MILLER
DIRECTED BY JERRY STROPNICKY

The limits of family bonds and personal honor are tested in Miller’s gripping tragedy, A View from the Bridge. The poverty of an American working class family comes face to face with the sheer destitution of their immigrant cousins, desperate to make a new life when an admirable longshoreman takes in two if his wife’s Italian cousins who have been smuggled into this country. One falls in love with his niece and a 1950s plot becomes more topical than ever!
