Based on countless interviews conducted with real-life women, the production features stories of body image, consensual and nonconsensual sexual experiences, genital mutilation, direct and indirect encounters with reproduction, sex work, and several other topics through the eyes of women of various ages, races, sexualities, and other differences. A recurring theme throughout the piece is the vagina as a tool of female empowerment and the ultimate embodiment of individuality.

The woman’s family must deal with more skeletons coming out of the closet while preparing for what could be an embarrassing funeral. In this ‘coming out’ story, the hilarious, sad, trashy truth about their lives runs amuck.

On Golden Pond
By Ernest Thompson

Exploring the often turbulent relationship between adult children and parents, and the difficulties faced by a couple in the twilight years of a long marriage, On Golden Pond is a heartwarming and hilarious show about generations of a family learning to communicate and to care. Ethel and Norman Thayer return to their summer home on Golden Pond for the forty-eighth year. They are visited by their divorced, middle-aged daughter and her dentist fiancé, who then go off to Europe, leaving his teenage son behind for the summer. This classic American comedy/drama is every bit as touching, warm, and witty today as when it debuted on Broadway in 1979.

Approximate Run Time: 2 hours
Rating: PG due to adult situations and mild language.

Anne of Green Gables
By Justin Arnold

Elderly siblings Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert asked the orphanage for a boy. What they got was Anne Shirley––a plucky redhead with a huge imagination and an even bigger temper. Soon, Anne burrows her way into the hearts of the Cuthberts, and the residents of Avonlea, as she grows from a hysterical twelve-year-old to a whip smart young woman who burns with ambition. Adapted from the 1908 book by Lucy Montgomery, this classic faithfully follows Anne’s journey through all of her iconic moments.

Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express
Adapted for the stage by Ken Ludwig
Presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc.

This Agatha Christie classic features a cast of colorful characters and a plot twist that is sure to delight any mystery fan! Just after midnight, a snowdrift stops the Orient Express in its tracks. The luxurious train is surprisingly full for the time of the year, but by the morning it is one passenger fewer. Isolated and with a killer in their midst, the passengers rely on detective Hercule Poirot to identify the murderer – in case he or she decides to strike again. Ken Ludwig’s clever adaptation of Agatha Christie’s Murder On The Orient Express boasts all the glamor, intrigue and suspense of the celebrated novel, with a healthy dose of humor.

By William Goldman, based on the novel by Stephen King

True life becomes stranger than fiction when an acclaimed romance novelist wakes up in the home of his “number one fan.” Rescued from a wintery car crash, Sheldon finds himself incapacitated and convalescing in the secluded home of Annie Wilkes, a seemingly kind nurse. When events take a nightmarish turn, the injured Paul realizes the unhinged Annie has no intention of letting him leave. This spine-tingling, nail-biting stage adaptation traps you in the room with Paul as the story spins out of control. Based on Stephen King’s acclaimed, best-selling novel, the tense cat-and-mouse game will grip you until the very end.
