Marriage

By Nikolai Gogol

Marriage is a poetic and hilarious, fractured fairy tale about the business of marriage.  A town matchmaker and a newly betrothed busybody match wits in an intense race to marry off a gun-shy suitor. One bride, four men, two matchmakers and one family are seduced into the calamity that ensues and it is anybody’s guess whether the bride will make it to the altar.

Detroit

By Lisa D'Amour

In a first-ring suburb just outside a city that could be Detroit, Ben and Mary see sudden signs of life at the deserted house next door and invite their new neighbors over for a barbecue. The fledgling friendship soon veers out of control, shattering the fragile hold Ben and Mary have on their way of life — with unexpected comic consequences. Detroit is a fresh, off-beat look at the seductive moment when we dare to open ourselves up to something new.

 

Goodnight Desdemona (Good Morning Juliet)

By Ann-Marie MacDonald

Othello and Romeo & Juliet: comedies?!  Absolutely. Take one mousy professor, suffering from unrequited love and trying to prove Shakespeare had prepared different, comic endings for two of his most famous plays. Stir in an intense time warp through a wastebasket, mistaken identities, passionate seductions, and a few swordfights. Bake until golden-hued. Decorate with a doomed turtle. Laugh until your breath is taken away.

Othello

By William Shakespeare

The rapid ascent of the powerful Othello and his breathtaking whirlwind marriage to the beautiful Desdemona is thrilling to watch, but it fractures the jealous Iago. We see him fluctuate easily between the cold-blooded plotting of mayhem and destruction, and the reassuring, “trust me, I love you.” By the end, Othello is stripped raw, his emotions exposed and his betrayal complete.

The Mousetrap

By Agatha Christie

The world's longest-running play, Agatha Christie's The Mousetrap has seduced London audiences for sixty years. A group of travelers are snowed in together on an intense journey at Monkswell Manor. One by one, they begin to meet their fates, leaving the survivors suspicious and pitted against one another in a desperate attempt to find the killer before time runs out.
