Fall 2021


Written by Branden Jacobs-Jenkins
Directed by Sarah Kozinn
November 4-7, 2021

If you knew you were going to die, what would you say about the life you lived? Everybody is a play about love. And death. And what happens, or might not happen, after. Playwright Branden Jacobs-Jenkins (AppropriateAn OctoroonGloriaNeighbors) twists a Medieval tale to explore what might happen in our final act.

Seize the King

Written and directed by Will Power
November 18-21, 2021

Power. Lust. War. Peace? Follow the tyrannical yet charming Richard as he plots his way to the throne, with nothing in his path except those brave enough to block him. This provocative myth of greed and virtue reimagines Shakespeare's Richard III as an explosive, contemporary lyrical tale, hauntingly poetic and dramatically compelling. Featuring a genre bending cast of 7 actors, this production is sure to provoke your thoughts, and set your soul ablaze.

Tickets for both shows will be available in September.
