The Voysey Inheritance



by


Harley Granville Baker




Harley Granville-Barker's classic investigation into the capitalist soul in this brilliant adaptation. For generations, the Voysey family business has been secretly skimming money from its clients' accounts.
When Edward, designated to take over the firm from his aging father, discovers the embezzlement that has been keeping his
relatives in a life of luxury, he must weigh the trappings of wealth and the imperative to preserve his family's good name against the better principles of his conscience.
But moral righteousness turns to self-protection when he comes to understand fully the consequences of his "inheritance."






















The Show Off


by
George Kelly

The Show Off was greeted in 1926 as the most brilliant comedy of character that any American dramatist had produced. This tremendously human and appealing comedy is a rare combination of character, humor and human nature.
"The struggles of Aubrey Piper to satisfy his enormous egotism and at the same time preserve his self respect in the presence of discouraging obstacles constitute one of the most interesting plays of our time. " Heyward Broun, New York World










Living Together


A trio of comedies set over one weekend at a home in the English countryside. Each play takes place in a different locations around the house: the dining room in
"Table Manners," the living room in "Living Together," and the garden in "Round and Round the Garden." The ingenious result is that as plots unfold, something seemingly incidental in one play takes on a hysterical new context in the next.





Kiss Me Kate

by

Cole Porter

Cole Porter's cosmopolitan chic essentially belonged to the 1930s, but he enjoyed a late, great hit in 1948 with this backstage story: one that shows the battling relationship of the once-married Lilli Vanessi and Fred Graham re-enacted as they play Kate and Petruchio in what someone here wittily, though perhaps anachronistically, dubs Shrew: the Musical. It's a glorious show.













































































The Charity that Began at Home: A Comedy for Philanthropists



by


St John Hanken




"The Charity that Began at Home, a comedy by St. John Hankin, had me laughing and laughing all afternoon long." Toronto Globe and Mail .
George Bernard Shaw called Hanken": "One of the masters of comedy among my playwright colleagues."
The play tells the story of how one family?s all-consuming commitment to kindness has awful and amusing consequences
that turns their household upside down.













Thurgood

by


George Stevens Jr



Thurgood Marshall, the first black member of the US Supreme Court, speaks about his life and in this brillient one man show. Audiences nostalgic for the progressive era in American history in which Marshall played a crucial role, the show may actually feel like a sweet escape to happier times, every bit as cheering (and a whole lot more edifying) than the giddiest of Broadway musicals.
At the end of the play Marshall recites from a Langston Hughes poem opening with the following line: "Oh, let America be America again."













Both My Sons
by

Abdul Muhamet Al Nuffe


In this moving drama from the aclaimed award winning Palistinian dramatist and author of Both My Sons captures the moment when a Palestinian couple, evicted from following the 1967 Six Day War, return to their former home. The son they were forced to abandon as a babe in arms has been raised by a Polish Isreali surviver of the holocaust. Now twenty he meets his birth parents for the first time. The boy now is an IDF soldier. The conflict these refugees face starkly illuminates the conflict of the unresolved tragidy of these two peoples. .
