Betty is looking forward to her vacation near the ocean. Unfortunately, she’ll be spending her vacation with an unusual cast of housemates: her ‘best friend’ Trudy who won’t stop talking, Trudy’s mother the wild Mrs. Siezmagraff, the oversexed and despicable Buck, the quiet Keith who may or may not be a serial killer, and a the crazy trench coat wearing derelict Mr. Vanislaw. Not to mention the voices that seem to be emitting behind the wall. THIS SHOW IS RATED R and not recommended for all audiences. This is a challenging production to experience but, a rewarding one for it’s commentary on our society.
The tragedy of Julius Caesar was written over four hundred years ago but resonates now more than ever. The themes of honor, fear, and friendship weave together to create an incredible tapestry of politics and power. After building an empire, Caesar returns to Rome to take his place as the virtual leader of the world. The Roman Senate will not stand for such a man in their midst. Idealism meets reality in Shakespeare’s classic.

When two couples meet to discuss a physical fight between their sons, things take a turn for the worse. Set in present-day New York City, God of Carnage is the story of two married couples who meet for the first time shortly after their respective sons have a nasty schoolyard tangle. Michael and Veronica, whose son’s teeth were knocked out with a stick, invite Alan and Annette, whose son did the knocking, to their home to settle matters such as who will pay for new teeth. But any attempt at having a civilized discussion about whose child is responsible for the fight, and how the parents may have influenced such destructive behavior, quickly devolves into finger-pointing, name-calling, stomping around and throwing things. And that’s before they break out the rum!
