This Random World: The Myth of Serendipity
Sept 10 – Oct 10, 2021
By Steven Dietz, Dir. Krista Schafer Ewbank
**This show was slated for April 2020, and was cancelled due to social distancing measures. We’re so excited to announce that we’ll be opening our 8th season with this play!
Mining the comedy of missed connections, THIS RANDOM WORLD asks the serious question of how often we travel parallel paths through the world without noticing. From an ailing woman who plans one final trip, to her daughter planning one great escape and her son falling prey to a prank gone wrong, this funny, intimate, and heartbreaking play explores the lives that may be happening just out of reach of our own.
“…affecting…The characters are drawn with empathy and humor, and the cascading series of coincidences neatly illustrates the idea that, as the title suggests, we are all hostages to chance.” —The New York Times. “…succeeds on every level…It’s the sort of play you walk away from having fallen completely in love with every person on the stage…The play is also fast and funny, delivering constant comedy that comes from the characters and their foibles, including numerous instances of the laughter that comes from a place of painful self recognition.” —Arts-Louisville.com.
Featuring Joshua Brown, Kez Settle, Krystle Dellihue, Kryssy Becker, Alysia Kolascz, Tim Pollack, and J. Michael Morgan. Lighting design by Harley Miah. Costume design by Cheryl Zemke.

The Wickhams: Christmas at Pemberley
Nov 11 – Dec 19, 2021
By Lauren Gunderson and Margot Melcon, Dir. Sarah Hawkins
Welcome back to Jane Austen’s Regency England with this follow up to last season’s hit, Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley. While the Miss Bennet plot unfolds upstairs, Pemberley’s servants navigate their own drama downstairs while preparing the holiday for the Darcys’ guests. But their work is interrupted by the unwelcome arrival of Lydia’s husband George Wickham — the sworn enemy of Mr. Darcy. The Wickhams is a heartwarming holiday tale that explores the confines of class and the generosity of forgiveness.
“…THE WICKHAMS is as witty and wonderful as its sister play… It is a truth universally acknowledged that Gunderson and Melcon brilliantly capture the heightened idiom of Austen’s world. What makes this writing team so remarkable…is the consistency of their plays’ characters with their originals in the novel. …enjoy the splendid holiday gift that is THE WICKHAMS.” —TwinCitiesArts.com. “…In the tradition of the source material, there is a powerful (without being overbearing) feminist message to THE WICKHAMS: CHRISTMAS AT PEMBERLEY. …a lovely holiday concoction: melt in your mouth, with just a touch of spice.” —TalkinBroadway.com.
January 21 – February 19, 2022.
by Jordan Harrison, Dir. Wendy Katz Hiller
It’s the age of artificial intelligence, and 85-year-old Marjorie — a jumble of disparate, fading memories — has a handsome new companion who’s programmed to feed the story of her life back to her. What would we remember, and what would we forget, if given the chance? In this richly spare, wondrous new play, Jordan Harrison explores the mysteries of human identity and the limits — if any — of what technology can replace.
Featuring Maggie Gilkes, Dan Johnson, Jeannine Thompson, and Lindel Salow.
