Jig Saw, January 18-February 3

As We Were Saying (Or Were We?), February 2-12

Women at Four O'Clock, February 14-March 3
World premiere of a previously unproduced play by Powell about a young woman whose attempts to change her dreary life lead to despair in the boozy, jazzy, fast-paced demi-monde of Roaring 20's New York.
