Time Stands Still
by Donald Margulies
August 29 - October 7, 2012
Sarah and James – a photographer and a journalist – share a passion for the adrenaline rush caused from reporting in the world’s deadliest war zones. As reporters, their lives are devoted to telling the toughest stories from across the globe. But how do you separate yourself from the action you witness? How do you create an impartial lens? When their own story takes a sudden turn during a bomb blast in Iraq, the wounded Sarah returns home with James to the safety of New York. Pressed to consider settling into a more “conventional” life, Sarah must face her addiction to the drama and chaos of war. More Details >>
Translation by Tom Stoppard
Based on Le Vent des Peupliers by Gerald Sibleyras
October 24 - December 2, 2012
Winner of the Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Comedy! The year is 1959. Three aging World War I veterans find themselves residing together in a military retirement home in the French countryside. They pass the time on their favorite isolated terrace – gossiping, joking, and generally irritating one another. Looking out to the cemetery beyond, the trio dream of their freedom. Our three heroes (along with a statue of a dog!) set into motion a courageous and adventurous escape plan to make their escape once and for all. What will their final destination be -- Indochina? The local village? Or perhaps just to the top of the hill? Heroes combines Tom Stoppard’s hysterical wit with the poignancy of the three veterans approaching their final journey together.

God of CarnageBaltimore Premiere!
by Yazmina Reza
March 13 - April 7, 2013
From the playwright that brought you ‘Art,’ comes this hilarious 2009 Tony Award Winner for Best Play. Two high-strung couples, Alan and Annette Raleigh and Michael and Veronica Novak, decide to meet one evening for a civilized discussion about a playground altercation between their two young sons. What follows is a comically explosive downhill slide from polite, political correctness to full-on character assassination. The New Yorker called this laugh-out-loud hilarity "ninety minutes of sustained mayhem." A no holds barred look at relationships between spouses and friends, and what happens when the littlest things end up pushing us completely over the edge… More Details >>

April 24 - May 19, 2013
Their father named them Lincoln and Booth…as a joke. Two African-American brothers – left to live life on their own without any parents – learned to survive as street savvy hustlers. Now grown men, their names and their histories haunt them. Lincoln becomes an Abraham Lincoln impersonator, shot nightly by tourists at a local attraction, while Booth tries to pick up his brother’s card skills. The brothers find themselves constantly conning those on the street and, ultimately, each other in this darkly funny fable about family grievances, racism, deep wounds and healing. Full of passion and poetry, Topdog/Underdog is by one of North America’s most consistently thought-provoking playwrights and won the 2002 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. More Details >>
