OLIVER!
By Lionel Bart
The streets of Victorian England come to life as Oliver, a malnourished orphan in a workhouse, becomes the neglected apprentice of an undertaker. Oliver escapes to London and finds acceptance amongst a group of petty thieves and pickpockets led by the elderly Fagin. When Oliver is captured for a theft that he did not commit, the benevolent victim, Mr. Brownlow takes him in. Fearing the safety of his hideout, Fagin employs the sinister Bill Sikes and the sympathetic Nancy to kidnap him back, threatening Oliver’s chances of discovering the true love of a family.
Musical Director, Pam Watson
February 24-March 6, 2022
THE SEA HORSE
By Edward J. Moore
This tender, ribald, and complex love story is set in a waterfront bar where seaman Harry Bales spends his shore leave. “The Sea Horse” is run by Gertrude Blum, with whom Harry enjoys a purely physical relationship. Gertrude has encased her heart behind a facade of toughness following a failed marriage. Now Harry has a dream; he wants to buy a charter fishing boat and to have a son. The play progresses through a ritual courtship as these outwardly abrasive characters fight, make up, fight again, spin dreams, deflate them, make love and reveal their locked up secrets.
 
March 24-April 3, 2022
FLYIN’ WEST
By Pearl Cleage
Set in 1898, Flyin’ West is the vivid and spirited story of African American women pioneers who settle together in the all-black town of Nicodemus, KS. After emancipation, the play’s four women have taken advantage of the Homestead Act to leave the oppressive South in hopes of finding the freedom that had been denied to them for so long. Cleage’s work explores themes of determination, racial pride, intermarriage and the power of love to highlight the female empowerment that she sees as vital to the African American community.
 
“[A] most potent, gripping play…a paean to women…and a plea for all women with vibrant lives to tell their oral stories….” — The New York Times

THE NOWHERE GIRL
By Karen Paisley
Movie star Caroline has it all: looks, fame, and a clear shot at superstardom. With pregnancy, though, her carefully crafted life gets torn apart as her body changes to grow a new life. The real and surreal blend together as Caroline grapples with her inner demons and fights for control of her own existence. From MET Artistic Director, Karen Paisley, comes a haunting and original new play marrying breezy dialogue with the dichotomy of demands placed on professional women by contemporary society.

THE WEIR
By Conor McPherson

Featuring: Kevin Fewell, Curtis Smith, Tommy Waller, Michael Scahill and Elizabeth Hillman
