Written by 2-time Drama Desk nominee Sara Farrington, Leisure, Lust is inspired by two very divergent worlds: Edith Wharton’s upper crust 1% and social reformer Jacob Riis’s most impoverished underclass. Farrington tackles issues of gender, sex, love, mental illness, and class in a tangled knot of privilege, poverty, and the myth of the American dream.The plot revolves around the savage imagination of novelist Grace Hunter (based on Wharton), whose husband Harry is rapidly losing his grip on reality. A mysterious stranger, Delancey Morris, emerges and sets off this intricate, decades-spanning, turn-of-the-century love story--where nothing is exactly as it seems.

Dec 6th - 16th, 2018

Written by Allison Gregory

Directed by Adin Walker

An exhausted working mother escapes to the sanctuary of the theatre and encounters a play she desperately doesn't want to watch. Allison Gregory’s Not Medea, is a refreshing take on an old story and gives its audience a much needed perspective on the trials and tribulations of motherhood in the 21st century. A synthesis of myth/magic/real world, Not Medea is a fierce slap-down about love, lust, motherhood, and forgiveness.
