In Checks and Balances or Bottoms Up!, a Gotham schoolgirl learns to be a feminist activist after being deemed a white elitist by her friends. Not least of her motivations is the injustice and callousness of a certain giant puppet who represents the dominion of arrogance and calls to passing women, "Here pussy, pussy, pussy!" During a spontaneous protest by subway passengers on the L train, this unlikely heroine acquires two key allies — a subway conductor and a teacher — and is inspired by three others — a Buddhist monk disguised as an itinerant bum, an investigative reporter, and a blue fairy. Together, they witness the agony of deportation, the shortage of health care, the misery of unemployment, the threats to clean air and water, and the fight to stifle the free press. So they set out to thwart the monster of apple pie fascism and threats of planetary death from the pumpkin head of state.
Antichrist comes disguised as Christ, promoting himself as the world's savior. He tells four kings — who represent humanity — that he is the true messiah and that he can rise from the dead. When he has just about convinced them of his divinity, two Old Testament prophets — Enoch and Elijah — enter and dissuade the kings from worshipping Antichrist. Antichrist attempts to verbally spar with them and, when he realizes he cannot win, he massacres all of them. But when all seems lost, the Archangel Michael arrives to set things straight.
Inspired by the classic children's book The Story of Ferdinand, Ferdinand tells the poignant story of Tom, a single dad, struggling to go with the flow and raise his son in a world determined to make him fight. Raised on the story of his namesake Ferdinand, the bull who refused to fight but just wanted to sit and smell the flowers, young Ferdy learns the hard lessons in life as his father endeavors to shield him from the harsh realities of adulthood.
Henry VI Part 3 revisits the late 1400s, when a series of wars for control of the throne set the House of Lancaster (symbolized by a red rose) against the House of York (symbolized by a white one). This play is one of four in Shakespeare's canon (Henry VI, Parts 1-3 and Richard III) that deal with the horrors of these conflicts, which threw the stable country into pandemonium as families broke down and moral codes were vitiated for the sake of payback and power. Hamilton Clancy's adaptation will dress the characters in suits, not armor.
Federico García Lorca's The House of Bernarda Alba (La Casa de Bernarda Alba) is a tragedy set in a cloistered world of women in 1930s Spain.

Their repressed environment leads to an explosion of passion, jealousy, hatred, and despair.
Note: The play is performed in Spanish with English subtitles via Simultext® In-Seat Captioning System. At matinee performances, subtitles are provided only by request.
NEC SPE / NEC METU (no hope / no fear), written by Sara Fellini and directed by Pat Diamond, is a collection of two dovetailing monodramas about the Baroque painters Artemisia Gentileschi and Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio.
In NEC SPE, Caravaggio confesses his hideous sins to an imagined or ethereal priest after his own brutal and untimely death, possibly searching for forgiveness. In NEC METU, Gentileschi recounts her notorious rape and torture in order to reclaim her legacy and illuminate her life and art.
