TRUE WEST
By Sam Shepard
Directed by Nicky Longo
Stage Manager: Hamilton Sawczuk
 
Austin, a well-off screenplay writer, and Lee, his screw-up older brother, are unexpectedly reunited when they have to watch their mother’s house as she travels to Alaska. Over the course of writing a screenplay, the brothers grapple with their individual identities and their dysfunctional fraternal relationship. Driven by the Pulitzer Prize-winning writing of Sam Shepard, True West navigates truth, devotion, and agency against the familiar backdrop of Los Angeles.

ON THE ROCKS
Written & directed by Ivy Indictor
Stage Manager: Elliot White

What would it take to for you to try to off one of your in-laws? Heartbreak? Betrayal? Probably more than it took Maura Stoppard! In this zany, fast-paced comedy, watch as the Stoppards struggle to balance loyalties with their warped moral code through Andy’s failing artistic career and Olive’s forbidden love, and decide for yourself whether or not Maura’s convenient solution justifies the means. Pull up a chair or get cuffed into one for a high-stakes evening with a family that’s finally as crazy as yours!

THE KILLING JOKE
Adapted & directed Jacob Byers
Based on the graphic novel by Alan Moore & Brian Bolland
Stage Manager: Link Berkley
 
One of the most famous graphic novels of all time, Batman: The Killing Joke brought complex moral questions to the easy-to-digest theme of comics. The Killing Joke, as adapted, is as technically innovative as its predecessor was topically innovative. The three stories discussing insanity and heroism intertwine beautifully through a combination of projected film and live performance.
