    AJAX

    When the mighty warrior Achilles has been killed the decision of who will receive his illustrious armor becomes open for debate. Greece’s mightiest warrior second only to Achilles, Ajax, is overlooked and disgraced when the armor is bestowed upon Odysseus causing Ajax to fall into a rage on the brink of madness In this rage, Ajax slaughters a filed of livestock and then takes his own life. Sophocles’ compelling work asked the audience to examine how we honor the soldiers who fight to protect us and how we as a society uphold that honor even when a warrior dishonors himself. Join us for a powerful performance starring veterans, community members and students as we explore the powerful themes of unity, honor, respect, and forgiveness in an unforgettable evening.

  • Noises Off

    Michael Frayn’s Noises Off takes a fond look at the follies of theatre folk, whose susceptibility to out-of-control egos, memory loss, and passionate affairs turn every performance into a high-risk adventure. This play-within-a-play captures a touring theatre troupe’s production of Nothing On in three stages: dress rehearsal, the opening performance, and a performance towards the end of a debilitating run.  Frayne gives us a window into the inner workings of theatre behind t…

    La Vida Loca

    An apolitical in-your-face odyssey of a Mexican Immigrant Carlos Manuel’s LA VIDA LOCA, is a monologue stuffed full with life. Carefully constructed to both heroize and expose the author/performer, his “crazy” life is revealed through a crazy quilt of carefully crafted memories, fantasies, dialogues, and excerpts from pop culture.

    The highly kinetic performance brings the already lively account to a fully form life, charming and occasionally challenging the audience to question their assumptions about ethnic and sexual identity, through the crossing of physical and psychological borders.
