Dog Act

A post-apocalyptic vaudeville, Dog Act follows Zetta Stone, a traveling performer, and her companion Dog, a young man undergoing a voluntary species demotion, as they walk through the wilderness of the former Northeast U.S. with their little troupe. They are heading toward a gig in China, if they can find it—and if they can survive to reach it.  A provocative and rollicking look at what might be next.

Clybourne Park

Winner of the 2011 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the 2012 Tony Award for Best Play, this satiric comedy takes a fascinating look at how we talk about – or avoid talking about – race in America. Using Lorraine Hansberry’s A Raisin in the Sun as a jumping-off point, the play begins in 1959 as a black family moves into a white neighborhood in Chicago, and in act two takes us to the same house in 2009 as gentrification sets in and the roles are reversed. Jokes fly and hidden agendas unfold as two generations tiptoe through social politics, pitting race against real estate.
