Love and loquacity.
Passion and puns.
Rhetoric and romance.
The Bard takes wordplay and wit to their most impressive in this clever comedy. In this exuberant romantic comedy youthful idealism gets derailed by love. The King of Navarre and his buddies have plans to immerse themselves in their studies swearing off less civilized pursuits — namely girls. But what they didn’t anticipate was a visit from the beautiful Princess of France and her three gorgeous ladies-in-waiting. Will the oath hold? Or will the men succumb to the game of love?

(A world premiere musical!)
Revenge may be sweet, but the Goddesses of Vengeance are anything but! Especially since they’ve been locked away by Zeus since antiquity, as punishment for abusing their powers. But now it’s the present, and the Furies are back! To regain their powers and freedom, Alecto, Megaera, and Tisiphone must pretend to be mortal and rescue Zeus’s son from a mental institution- without resorting to vengeance. Prepare yourself for a whole new kind of crazy as the three goddesses struggle to get accustomed the world that we live in and- even worse- human emotions.

A comedic romp into the world of fantasy role-playing games, this play tells the story of Agnes Evans as she leaves her childhood home in Ohio following the death of her teenage sister, Tilly. When Agnes finds Tilly’s Dungeons & Dragons notebook, however, she stumbles into a journey of discovery and action-packed adventure in the imaginary world that was Tilly’s refuge. In this high-octane dramatic comedy laden with homicidal fairies, nasty ogres, and 90′s pop culture, acclaimed young playwright Qui Nguyen offers a heart-pounding homage to the geek and warrior within us all.

Binky Rudich, his friend Viv, and his almost human sheep Bob, tinker with a two-speed clock with the idea that, as Binky says, “Time on Earth moves at the same speed all the time, but there is another speed, a slower speed, and if we could find it, everything would standstill on Earth and we would spin off.” And they do! To Crestview, Fourth World in the Goolagong System, ruled by George Topax and guarded by the Great Space Pandas. The excitement really begins when the Supreme Ruler commands that Bob be brought to him, never again to leave Goolagong, and he steals the two-speed clock just to make sure. Only a very serious playwright could produce such an insane comedy!
