In Shakespeare’s most intimate tragedy, director Bill Rauch explores racism, religious bias, xenophobia, and the more disturbing aspects of relationships in the context of our society’s ongoing struggle with polarizing differences. Consumed by their bigotry, those who praised the Moorish general Othello’s military successes now reject his marriage to Desdemona. The newlyweds are determined to overcome all obstacles, but Othello’s assignment in an exotic new location draws them into the web of his lieutenant Iago, whose resentment and demons know no bounds. A powerful cast of twelve actors includes Chris Butler (Othello), Alejandra Escalante (Desdemona), Danforth Comins (Iago) and Amy Kim Waschke (Emilia).

In this timely world-premiere drama by celebrated playwright, activist and attorney Mary Kathryn Nagle, past and present intertwine. Nagle’s story illuminates the tragic consequences of commercial exploits, including the removal of Native American people and the attempted eradication of their culture, that gave rise to the America we know today. Securities trader Jane Snake is torn between worlds. Her return to Wall Street in 2008 brings her to Manahatta (“island of many hills” in Lenape), the homeland her Native American ancestors were violently forced to leave in the 1600s. Meanwhile, her family in Oklahoma struggles to save their language, their culture and their over-mortgaged home. Jane Snake’s return to Manahatta defiantly demonstrates that the Lenape are still here. Directed by Laurie Woolery (The River Bride).

This lively adaptation of Jane Austen’s sparkling romance is full of comedic surprises and deliciously wicked social commentary, with the daring premise that true love unites both hearts and minds—and that women should be seen, heard and valued. Life takes a sudden turn when Mrs. Dashwood (Kate Mulligan) and her three daughters lose their home, thrown out by their selfish half-brother. With no money to speak of, the marriage prospects for the sisters are bleak. When love—or what looks like it—comes calling for Elinor (Nancy Rodriguez) and Marianne (Emily Ota), they are whirled into a tangle of gossip, scandal and unexpected fortune. This joyous adaptation by Kate Hamill is passionately directed by Hana S. Sharif, wedding their artistic sensibilities with an ardent love of Jane Austen.
