The night after their grandfather’s funeral, three cousins engage in a vicious and hilarious brawl over family, faith, and legacy .

From the indefatigable, witty and tough drag queens of And Tell Sad Stories of the Deaths of Queens... to the disheartened poet Mister Paradise, these are tales of isolated figures struggling against a cruel world, who refuse to lose sight of their dreams.

Freedom to create is air to an artist - without it they would perish. But when every poet, musician, comedian, and philosopher is exiled to the wilderness, and a vicious media baron replaces them with bloodsport, is art enough to survive on? Rosalind and her cousin Celia navigate the crazed world of wrestling, cross-dressing, and ennui-plagued men to find true love and true expression in this modern production of As You Like It.

Capulet. Montague. Deaf. Hearing. Our identities tell the world who we are and shape how we interact with others. This modern production of Romeo and Juliet examines what can happen when we choose to see certain groups as "other" or as our enemies, instead of finding commonality and community. Accessible to Deaf and hearing audiences in American Sign Language (ASL) and Shakespeare's spoken English.

Ann and Cathy grapple with ideas concerning the individual’s relationship to society, the nature of redemption and the qualities of mercy. Ann is steadfast in her belief that people never really change and that "kindness to the wicked is cruelty to the just," which makes a vice out of mercy.
