Imagine being 12 and having soldiers occupying your house and land, with only your cat to tell your secrets. Kneehigh Theatre, who wowed audiences at the Wallis with Brief Encounter, return with 946, which was originally produced by the Wallis' new artistic director Paul Crewes.
Kneehigh's signature sorcery of music, puppetry and foolishness transports us to Slapton Sands, England, in 1944. Based on the beloved book by War Horse author Michael Morpurgo, 946 explodes everything we thought we knew about the D-Day landings in this tender tale of love and war.

Pastor Paul comes back from Africa with a blasphemous interpretation of Christianity. Can his congregation handle his game-changing revelation? Thousands flock to his church each week — some for Holy Communion, some for hot coffee — where the big-screen TVs and the Olympic-sized baptismal fount are surefire crowd-pleasers. Backed by a live choir, The Christians is both epic and intimate, an unflinching look at faith in America — and its power to unite or divide.
What better way to start the new year than with a goofy, charming musical escape? Miraculously revived from the dead, four young singers killed in a car crash on the way to their first-ever big concert get to fulfill their dream and perform the show after all — even though now it's more than 50 years later and at International City Theatre! Singing in close harmony, squabbling over the smallest intonations, and executing their choreography with gentle comedic abandon, the four Plaids will keep everyone smiling and humming along to some of the great pop hits of the 1950s. The crowd-pleasing score consists of unforgettable classics, including "Three Coins in the Fountain," "Catch a Falling Star," "Chain Gang," "Cry," "Heart and Soul," "Rags to Riches," "Love Is a Many-Splendored Thing," and more.
Every once in a while a show comes along that surprises, moves, and excites audiences in ways only a landmark musical can. Enter Fun Home. It introduces us to Alison, the protagonist, at three different ages as she explores and unravels the mysteries of her childhood.
A musical about seeing your parents through grown-up eyes, Fun Home won five Tony Awards in 2015, including Best Musical. Based on Alison Bechdel's best-selling graphic memoir, it features music by Jeanine Tesori, a book and lyrics by Lisa Kron, and direction by Sam Gold. Their work for this production earned them, respectively, Tony Awards for Best Score, Best Book, and Best Direction. The show even made Broadway history as the first Best Musical winner written only by women. As if that weren't enough, Tesori and Kron became the first female writing team to win Best Score.
Note: This show is recommended for ages 13 and up.
Young, excitable Hare wants nothing more in this world than to race his friend — the older, slower Tortoise. While Hare speeds through daily life and does everything he can to make the time pass faster, Tortoise slows down and takes her time, whether doing chores or having fun. Hare and Tortoise is a fun, fast (and slow) show for four-to-eight-year-olds about friendship, the passing of time, and the excitement of growing up.
Eugene O'Neill's semi-autobiographical masterpiece pulls back the curtain on the Connecticut home of the Tyrone family, where deep-seated resentments and bourbon-fueled tirades cause a family to expose their darkest natures. O'Neill paints this powerful and heartrending portrait as a single day that begins like any other, only to become a night from which the Tyrones will never recover.

A comatose man reemerges into consciousness in a multilayered, multimedia theatrical event about the miraculous power of the brain to rewire and heal itself. Blending cutting-edge science with masterful storytelling, Ovation, Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle, and L.A. Weekly Award-nominated cowriters Alex Lyras and Robert McCaskill team up with Grammy Award-nominated composer Ken Rich, visual artist Corwin Evans, and multi-Emmy Award-winning editor Peter Chakos to take the audience deep inside his memories, even as a hovering circle of family members and loved ones (all played by Lyras) divide into scheming camps over critical neurological decisions. Plasticity is a profound, often comedic tour of the collective unconscious.
