Ramona is reinventing herself following her second round of chemotherapy. Khalil has sold his identity to a major telecom and media corporation. June is learning to flirt again, post-divorce, and Owen has replaced his drug addiction with a massive collection of teas. 
A romantic comedy about living in the liminal spaces and resisting the urge to disappear. When our world is turned upside down, who do we become? How do we connect when the only constant is change?

Lisa Loomer's Roe takes us out of the courtroom, introducing us to the real women at the heart of the controversial Supreme Court decision. Powerful, funny, poignant, and inspiring, Roe reflects the polarization in America today while giving us a fast-moving, fair-minded look at the history of our complicated shared humanity. Chosen for this upcoming season for painfully obvious reasons, this vital project speaks directly to the current times.

November 17-19, 2022 at 7:30 pm and November 20, 2022 at 2 pm

Join us for a post-show talkback on Friday, the 18th with Khanisha!

Oedipus at Colonus
Written by Sophocles
Translated by Robert Fagles
Directed by Will Power

Oedipus at Colonus is the last chapter in the Greek mythological tale of King Oedipus, the once revered ruler of Thebes, who was ostracized for unknowingly killing his own father and marrying his mother. The play shows a complex king attempting to redeem himself, and find some kind of peace in the face of exterior torments and internal feelings of anger and remorse. What follows is not only a single king in torment, but a whole family (and consequently an ancient Greek society) at war with itself, with the stakes being each character’s sanity and existence.

A Doll's House, Part 2
Written by Lucas Hnath
Directed by Jamie Angell
Stage Managed by Avery Jones
What happens when there’s a knock on the door Nora slammed 15 years ago? Having left behind her domestic “prison” to become an independent self-actualized woman, Nora is now forced to return in order to finish what she started. Lucas Hnath's A Doll’s House, Part 2 stays true to the characters Ibsen created while contemporaneously investigating the meaning and underlying impulses behind Nora’s slammed door.
March 30, 31 & April 1 at 7:30
Admission is free

It Could Have Been Enough
A new play by Zachary Goldsmith '24
March 3 & 5 at 7:30pm behind Keck Theater

Rachel and Asher host their first Passover Seder at their new house, much to Rachel’s chagrin. But when Asher’s friends reveal a surprise Seder in the park, Rachel wants to stop it before there is any potential for a dangerous encounter. Desperate, she accepts the help of the Wicked Son, whose vile plan unleashes the ten plagues onto the house.

How far would someone go to run away from their identity? How can we balance trauma and joy? It Could Have Been Enough investigates what it means to be a Jewish young adult in 2022-2023.
