Each play offers something different, be it funny, profound, elegant, disgusting, topical, irrelevant, terrifying, or a song; all are truthful and tackle the here-and-now, inspired by the lived experiences of the performers.

The play dramatizes the life, loves, and the ultimately tragic decline of Josh Gibson, who was perhaps the greatest slugger of the Negro leagues and who, some say, died of a broken heart in 1947, a short step from his prime as a player.
Based on real events, the play shows Gibson struggling heroically to make it into the Big Leagues with emotional support from his good friend, the legendary pitcher Satchel Paige, and from the two women who are rivals for his heart — his common-law wife and his mistress. Despite his majestic on-field performance, there are immovable obstacles, including resistance to black players by Major League club owners and Gibson's own personal demons, which suffocate his chances.
A Midsummer Night's Dream transports audiences to the palaces of Athens and the dark, bewitching forests surrounding the kingdom where the fairy King Oberon and his Queen Titania are waging a deliciously romantic war. With help from the devilish Puck, Oberon casts a spell over his estranged wife, as well as the lovers Hermia, Helena, Lysander, and Demetrius. Meanwhile, as the Mechanicals rehearse their tragically hilarious Pyramus & Thisby, Puck cannot resist transforming the hapless Bottom into a donkey. Will witchcraft spell disaster or save the day?

Nominated for an Olivier Award, My Brilliant Divorce explores how to cope when the world you have built comes crashing spectacularly down.
