The Whipping Man

January 20 – February 15, 2015

Richmond, April 1865. In this powerful and evocative historical play, a wounded Jewish confederate soldier returns to his family home that now stands ruined and abandoned – except for two former slaves also raised in the Jewish faith. As the three men share an improvised Seder to mark Passover, they discover that, though they are no longer tied by ownership, they remain bound by faith, history and long-buried secrets.

Since opening off-Broadway to critical acclaim and winning the Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Play, The Whipping Man has become one of the most produced plays in the country.

Buyer and Cellar

March 3 – 29, 2015

Alex More is an underemployed actor who is hired for the oddest of odd jobs – toiling in the basement “mall” of a famous actress. Equal parts fantasy and farce, Buyer and Cellar is a hilarious examination of the pressures of fame and perfection, hailed by Entertainment Weekly as,“Hilarious! Beyond Brilliant. This show will go down ‘like buttah!’”

Six Degrees of Separation

April 21 - May 17, 2015

The 25th Anniversary Production

Artistic Director David Saint helms the 25th Anniversary of Six Degrees of Separation, winner of the Drama Desk and Olivier Awards. Based on actual events, this fast-paced, funny and remarkably powerful play comments on what drives us, whether it be the allure of celebrity, the desire for money, fame and social standing, or the solace and comfort of meaningful human connection.
