On the Main Stage 2015-2016 Season

 

When a young man is killed in a car accident, a group of fractured souls encounter a magical dying baby and begin to rewrite the stories of their lives. Folk tales and folklore weave throughout this darkly comic story of sad endings, strange beginnings, and the unlikely people that get you from one place to the next. During its 2012 production, The New York Times said, “The imperceptible magic that pervades human existence and the power of myth to assuage sorrow are invoked by Stefanie Zadravec as she entwines the lives of strangers in THE ELECTRIC BABY, a touching new drama.” Read more.

Anna will do anything to make her sister Lily happy, including destroying all her relationships. When Lily, Anna and her husband Malcolm retreat to their late father’s cabin in Cape Cod, they expect to relax, unwind and take stock. But when a charming but shadowy drifter enters the picture angling for Lily’s heart, their pilgrimage takes a surprising turn. During its recent rolling world premiere in California and Massachusetts, Stark Insider wrote, “SISTER PLAY is why live theater can be so remarkable. You don’t soon forget a play like this.” (New Jersey premiere) Read more.

The Outgoing Tide

By Bruce Graham

April 21 – May 8, 2016

In a summer cottage on Chesapeake Bay, Gunner has hatched an unorthodox plan to secure his family’s future but meets with resistance from his wife and son, who have plans of their own. As winter approaches, the three must quickly find common ground and come to an understanding before the tide goes out. This drama hums with dark humor and powerful emotion. When the play ran Off-Broadway in 2012, The New York Times said, "…this drama brings sensitive observation and minor-key humor to painful situations that many of us will recognize from our own families…its poignant conclusion will have resonance for many in the audience."  (New Jersey premiere) Read more.
