CLybourne Park
October 2 - 27, 2013
* Pulitzer Prize Winner

Tony Award Winner for Best Play Clybourne Park explodes in two outrageous acts set fifty years apart. Act 1 takes place in 1959, as nervous community leaders anxiously try to stop the sale of a home to a black family. Act 2 is set in the same house in the present day, as the now predominantly African-American neighborhood battles to hold its ground in the face of gentrification.

The Grand Manner
November 6 - 24, 2013
* Maine Premiere, 3 weeks only

In 1948, a young boarding-school student travels to New York to attend a performance of Shakespeare’s Antony and Cleopatra. Going backstage afterward he meets the production’s star, Katharine Cornell, who was dubbed “The First Lady of the American Stage.” A mix of remembrance and imagination, The Grand Manner is a love letter to this fabled actress and a heartfelt look back at the glorious heyday of the Broadway theater.

Becky's New Car
January 29 - February 23, 2014
* Portland Premiere

Becky is caught in middle age, middle management and in a middling marriage with no prospects for change on the horizon. When Becky is offered nothing short of a new life, the audience is offered a chance to ride shotgun on this rollicking adventure. Becky’s New Car is a thoroughly original comedy – a devious and delightful romp down the road not taken.

Running Time: 2:00
