    Just when you thought the holidays were over: this play takes us back to lively dynamics of a large holiday gathering in November. Two sportscaster-style narrators weigh in on the low blows, the benchwarmers, and the full-court presses, leading up to a terrifying and unexpected photo finish. The New York Times called the 2014 production a “dizzyingly entertaining work.”

    In this sequel to The Crucible, the girl who initiated the witch hysteria is working as a midwife and nurse ten years later. A powerful and thrilling play about a guilt-ridden woman’s quest for redemption. Can even the worst crimes be forgiven?

     Euripides’ play takes place after the Trojan War; in Mee’s adaptation, set in our contemporary world, veterans return from the Trojan War to find that the disorder and nightmare of war has come home with them. In Mee’s signature collage style, this big, civic-minded work looks at the impossibility of homecoming, and a homeland in ruins.

    A mischievous fairy with a magic flower, an amateur actor transformed into an ass, two lovers running away from their unsympathetic parents all collide in a moonlit forest in one of the Bard’s most beloved and funniest comedies, the world’s greatest work of art on the madness of love.
