Our 2021 Season

Baby With The Bathwater by Christopher Durang

Opens October 15, 2021

Baby With The Bathwater, by Christopher Durang, is a dark comedy about how difficult it is to be a parent, and how scary it is to be a baby and a child. 

It is a bitingly satiric black comedy by one of theatre’s most provocative and inventive writers,  he skewers parenthood with savagely gleeful wit and characteristically outrageous humor. 

Wacky is the word for Baby With The BathwaterWinningly wild and wonderful apply too as does gut-bustingly hilarious, a bathtub full of adjectives and adverbs that make Durang’s play is an odd little piece – comic and absurd, yet still with a purpose and a heart.

Bash closed August 29, 2021

Bash, by Neil LaBute, is a collection of three one-act plays. 

Each play is an exploration of the complexities of evil in everyday life, and two of the works, “iphigenia in orem” and “medea redux” have direct Greek influence, specifically Iphigenia in Aulis and Medea by Euripides.
