Having dedicated her life to religious service, Shelley runs a Bronx soup kitchen with unsentimental efficiency, but lately her heart’s not quite in it. Her brisk nature masks an unsettling fear that her efforts are meaningless. When Emma – an idealistic but confused college dropout – arrives to volunteer, her reckless mix of generosity and self-involvement pushes Shelley to the breaking point. With keen humor and startling compassion, Heidi Schreck’s play navigates the mystery of faith, the limits of forgiveness, and the pursuit of something resembling joy.
By Heidi Schreck. Directed by Kez Settle.
“Heidi Schreck’s beautiful tragicomedy of life… reminds you of why you go to the theater in the first place.” – Chicago Sun Times

These two younger sisters are ready for their own adventures in life and love, starting with the arrival of an admirer and secret correspondent. Meddlesome families and outmoded expectations won’t stop these determined friends from forging their own way in a holiday tale filled with music, ambition, sisterhood, and forgiveness.
The third and final play in the trilogy co-written by Lauren Gunderson and Margot Melcon. Directed by Wendy Katz Hiller.
When our narrator was six years old, his mother went into the hospital. His dad says she’s “done something stupid.” She finds it hard to be happy. So he starts to make a list of everything that’s brilliant about the world. Everything that’s worth living for: Ice cream, water fights, staying up past your bedtime and being allowed to watch TV. Soon, the list will take on a life of its own. Based on true and untrue stories, Every Brilliant Thing is a life-affirming play about how to achieve hope through focusing on the smallest miracles of life.
By Duncan Macmillan, with Jonny Donahoe, Directed by Kat Walsh. Featuring Stebert Davenport.
“[EVERY BRILLIANT THING] is sad, but it is also gloriously funny and exceptionally warm. It’s a show that spells out a little of what depression can do to people, but it also highlights the irrepressible resilience of the human spirit and the capacity to find delight in the everyday.” —Time Out London.
Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python and you have The 39 Steps, a fast-paced whodunit for anyone who loves the magic of theatre.

Adapted by Patrick Barlow from the novel by John Buchan. Directed by Krista Schafer.
“Theatre at its finest… Absurdly enjoyable! This gleefully theatrical riff on Hitchcock’s film is fast and frothy, performed by a cast of four that seems like a cast of thousands.” – The New York Times
