Main Street Players presents Bad Jews by Joshua Harmon. This dark comedy chronicles the relationships between three cousins who are brought together following the death of their grandfather, a Holocaust survivor. Conflict ensues as the trio fight over a "chai" that belonged to their grandfather. As Daphna and Liam battle over who is more deserving of the memento, Liam's girlfriend Melody and brother Jonah try to stay clear of the fighting. This is a very funny play despite the serious overtones of death, identity, and religion. The show is directed by MSP Artistic Director Robert Coppel with Clara Lyzniak as the production manager.
Have you ever been tempted to flee your own life? Becky Foster is caught in middle age, middle management and in a middling marriage—with no prospects for change on the horizon. Then one night a socially inept and grief-struck millionaire stumbles into the car dealership where Becky works. Becky is offered nothing short of a new life…and the audience is offered a chance to ride shotgun in a way that most plays wouldn't dare. Becky's New Car is a thoroughly original comedy with serious overtones, a devious and delightful romp down the road not taken.
Style. Status. Success. A group of 20-something editorial assistants are pursuing it all at one of New York's most esteemed cultural magazines. But declining readership, diminishing advertising revenue, and forced layoffs have employees tense and combative behind their cubicle walls.

A Pulitzer Prize finalist, this hilariously dark and shocking play takes audiences on an unpredictable, unnerving journey to a simple and very human insight.
Julius Caesar endures as a provocative examination of personal responsibility against the backdrop of great political consequences. In a fast-paced adaptation both intimate and ruthless, the next generation will have the chance to ask how each of us must weigh the greater good against the advice of friends, the roar of public opinion, strategic advantages, personal costs, and the compass of our own hearts.
Hilarious and heartwarming, this unconventional new comedy tackles love, loss, and coming to terms with growing old.

Strangers just the day before, Abigail thinks she may finally be ready to take another chance on love, but Angus has a few issues to work through first. Enter neighbor Ollie, formerly a baseball player for the Detroit Tigers who now enjoys golf and yoga. Nothing is as it seems with this trio, and every disclosure reveals a new perspective. Set in a Florida retirement community, this charming and big-hearted comedy takes audiences on an unexpected journey toward a new lease on life.
A farce. A tragedy. A brilliant experiment for the mind. Brace yourself for an exhilarating experience staged by multi-Tony Award winner Frank Galati. Berenger is a simple man with a simple life. He has a regular job, drinks too much, and has a flirtatious relationship with his coworker Daisy. But his day is interrupted by a rhinoceros charging through town — then another and another. Berenger begins to ponder the ramifications of literally following the herd. Written just after World War Two, Rhinoceros is still considered a masterpiece of absurdist theater, where the world is incomprehensible and anything a writer can imagine can happen. Don't miss this hilarious satire about mass culture, conformity, and integrity.
As the U.S. adjusts to a new administration and millions of women march in solidarity around the world, Roe emerges at a pivotal time in our nation's history. The lawyer: a young, brilliant, courageous woman arguing Roe v. Wade before the Supreme Court. The plaintiff: a hard-living single woman who, in 1969, found herself poor and pregnant for a third time. The landmark 1973 case legalized abortion but also began unforeseen transformations for these women, mirroring the polarization in American culture. With shocking turns and surprising humor, Roe illuminates the difficult choices women make and the passion each side has for its cause.
