Gross Indecency: The Three Trials of Oscar Wilde takes a modern look at the life of a 19th century literary figure who was silenced and shunned during his lifetime and met a tragic end. The play uses documents of the past to uncover the story and bring him and his contemporaries to life.
Eurydice, a modern re-imagining of Greek myth, gives a voice to a character who is typically a device in a male-centered story. She uses her love of words to communicate her experience, even though the forces of life and death wish to silence her.
The Liar is driven by the character of Dorante, is constantly reinventing his life and telling wild, compelling stories. This play takes the classic French farce and revives it with fresh, modern language that pulls conventions and linguistic stylings from the past while creating a dynamic new rendition of the story.
We look forward to sharing these stories with you!
