Russian Troll

by Rich Rubin

Sasha is a Russian troll. Seriously, it's his job – and a well-paying one at that. But Sasha's life is far from simple. His boss, his mother and the woman he loves are all unhappy with him, and the foreign candidate he's supposed to trash is far ahead in the polls. With things so messy, how will Sasha ever achieve his life-long dream – moving to America?

Unbuttoning Virginia

by Nora Douglass

July 15 – 18, 2021

 

Unbuttoning Virginia is a comedy about dying. A woman near the end of her life finds her voice and takes on the machinations of an absurd and indifferent medical bureaucracy with the help of an imaginary friend. But while Virginia readies herself to permanently exit, she discovers her estranged children have other ideas and finds she must weigh her own wishes against those who love her and whom she loves. Teetering between comic satire and family drama, the play is a journey of discovery, reconnection and reconciliation for a woman who thought her life was over.

Merchant of Stratford

by Maury Zeff

August 5 – 8, 2021

 

In 1600 plague-ridden Stratford, semi-legitimate businessman—and sometime playwright—William Shakespeare struggles to feed his family and finish his “greatest play ever.” Each Shakespeare family member mourns the death of son Hamnet in their own way—daughter Judith haunted by visions of her dead brother; wife Anne obsessed with protecting her family; actor brother Edmund perceiving reality as one endless stage play; and William lost in sheer denial. Against this shattered family backdrop, William must “procure” a wagon of grain, finish his play, and keep at bay Puritan authorities who would imprison him and keep theatres closed for good.
