A young bride who lives above a bank with her husband who is the assistant manager, innocently sends a mail order off for some Scandinavian glassware. What comes is Scandinavian pornography.

The matter is considerably complicated by the man's mother, his boss, a visiting bank inspector, a police superintendent, and a muddled friend who does everything wrong in his reluctant efforts to set everything right, all of which works up to a hilarious ending of closed or slamming doors. This farce ran in London over eight years and also delighted Broadway audiences.

With mesmerizing ease, he portrays multiple characters who all take turns beating the hornet's nest of hype and spin with the big stick of knowledge. It's comedy on steroids.

Jeff Talbott's The Submission is an explosive tale of race, sexuality, and prejudice. A young Caucasian playwright pens a play under a pseudonym about growing up poor and African-American. When a major theater festival accepts the work for production, he panics: no one will take it seriously if they know he wrote it. So he hires an African-American actress to "play" the playwright. His boyfriend thinks it's a terrible idea, as does his best friend. And the actress has serious doubts. But the plan proceeds, and among the humor of the situation, the play considers some very important issues of racism, homophobia, cultural appropriation, and the differences/similarities in struggles for equality among various communities.
This fun, physical, eye-popping production asks Kate and Petruchio to face the music and dance. One of Shakespeare's most fiery couples, their courtship will be a sultry, aggressive tango, but the big question will be: who is going to lead?
Growing up in her father's house, Katherine has always ruled the roost but now finds herself eclipsed as her seemingly sweet younger sister Bianca comes of age. Kate is trapped, unable to endure the silly suitors of Padua and unwilling to let her little sister outshine her. Enter cunning (but possibly mad) Petruchio, the first man to ever keep up with her quick wits and sharp turns. It's Shrew as you have never seen it before – the battle of the sexes becomes a tango in which Kate and Petruchio must face the music and dance...literally. Their courtship is both captivating and combative, but the question remains: who is going to lead? "Nobody does Shakespeare comedy better than Lantern Theater Company!" -CurtainUp
