Anna in the Tropics

by Nilo Cruz

Directed By Matthew Kellen Burgos

Set in 1929 in Ybor City, Florida, this Pulitzer Prize-winning play depicts a time of transition in the lives of Cuban exiles. The death of handmade Cuban cigars is imminent, as is the family-owned factories and their workers. But when a factory hires a new lector to read Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina to its workers, the words themselves polarize the factory and incite the workers to fight for their jobs, passions, and dreams—leading to conflict, infidelity, and tragedy.

Almost, Maine

By John Cariani

Directed By Susan Boulanger

Almost, Maine is a fictional town that’s so far north it’s almost in Canada. One cold, clear Friday night in the middle of winter, while the northern lights hover in the sky above, Almost’s residents find themselves falling in and out of love in the strangest ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. And life for the people of Almost, Maine will never be the same. It’s not really love, but almost.

Inherit the Wind

By Jerome Lawrence and Robert Edwin Lee

Directed By C. Julian White

In this dramatization of the famous Monkey Trial of 1925, school teacher Bertram Cates is put on trial for violating a state law that prohibits public school teachers from teaching evolution. Bible-thumping politician Matthew Harrison Brady is brought in to lead the prosecution while prominent litigator Henry Drummond is selected to represent the defense. An energetic and spell binding trial ensues that challenges our first amendment right to freedom of speech.

Top Girls

By Caryl Churchill

Directed By Christine Cummings

  • Caryl Churchill’s contemporary masterpiece introduces us to career-driven Marlene celebrating her promotion to managing director of the London employment agency “Top Girls” at a dinner party for a collection of famously am-bitious women from history. The play explores the obstacles women face and the price they pay to ascend from the bottom rung to the executive corner office. Ultimately, this production examines what women must sacrifice to be successful in a man's world and how that success is measured. Both very funny and thought provoking, Top Girls is still blisteringly relevant today, 35 years after its West End premiere.
