based on Arden of Faversham by Anonymous, directed and adapted by Dan Bray
November 18-22, 2015 – Rehearses through late October- mid November 2015. Please note that weekday and weekend daytime availability will be required.
Set at a site-specific historical landmark, this darkly-comic tragedy follows a woman who hires a team of ragtag killers to assassinate her husband (think Elizabethan Fargo).

by Thomas Middleton, directed by Keelin Jack
March 2-6, 2016 – rehearses January – February 2016. Rehearsal schedule is not yet determined but may require weekday and weekend daytime availability.
Middleton’s notorious gender-based drama is a ruthless power trip that leaves very few standing and no one looking good. With a view filtered through the male gaze, we see a host of female villains and victims whose desperate struggle for survival leaves sisterhood in the dust.
