Miss Julie November 14-17

Black Box Theatre
Suitable for ages 17 & above:
Adult Situations

Miss Julie (1888) was once considered too disturbing to be performed in public. Shocking in subject-matter, revolutionary in technique, it was fiercely attacked on publication for immorality. The play's premiere in 1889 was banned by the censor and its first public production three years later aroused such protests that it closed after one performance. Today Miss Julie is considered the most famous of the plays by August Strindberg, considered one of the founders of the modern theatre movement. It still serves as a reflection of a society that oppresses people based on gender, economic status and inequitable moral standards.

She Kills Monsters February 20-23

Black Box Theatre
Suitable for all ages

She Kills Monsters tells the story of Agnes Evans as she deals with the death of her younger sister, Tilly. When Agnes stumbles upon Tilly’s Dungeons & Dragons notebook, she finds herself catapulted into a journey of discovery and action-packed adventure in the imaginary world that was her sister’s refuge. In this high-octane dramatic comedy laden with homicidal fairies, nasty ogres, and ’90s pop culture, acclaimed playwright Qui Nguyen (Vampire Cowboy Trilogy) offers a heart-pounding homage to the geek and warrior within us all.

The Great Beyond/ The Ghost of Splinter Cove April 23-26

Black Box Theatre

 

Two different plays, two unique casts, one cohesive story. Written by the same playwright, the acclaimed Steven Dietz, the two productions take place in the same house on the same somber evening. Upstairs is home to “The Great Beyond,” while downstairs hosts “The Ghost of Splinter Cove.” Part of The Second Story Project, the two plays are strong enough that they can stand alone but complement and reveal the full story when viewed together.

Monica is ready to say goodbye. Rex is preparing for a reunion. Emily is seeking forgiveness. And Rene is hoping to provide answers that lie beyond this world. THE GREAT BEYOND is a heartbreaking paranormal comedy about family, loss, and forgiveness.

Nate and Cora’s family has a secret. One night while the siblings are having fun with a new friend in their basement, this secret unearths a mystery that transports them on the adventure of their lives. Along the way, they discover things about both their family and themselves that will change them forever. THE GHOST OF SPLINTER COVE conjures a world of mystery in the wilderness ... but be careful – you may get lost in what’s real and what’s not.
