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 Birthday Party

by

Harold Pinter

"The Birthday Party is about Stanley Webber, an erstwhile piano player in his 30s, who lives in a rundown boarding house, run by Meg and Petey Boles, in an English seaside town, "probably on the south coast, not too far from London".
Two sinister strangers, Goldberg and McCann, who arrive supposedly on his birthday and who appear to have come looking for him, turn Stanley's apparently innocuous birthday party organised by Meg into a nightmare
















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.







































































The Widdowing of Mrs. Holyrode

by

D. H. Lawrence


The play stands up today as that rare thing in English drama: an authentic working-class tragedy. What is striking is Lawrence's ability to show how a domestic crisis emerges
from a background of Zolaesque realism: clothes have to be washed, meals prepared and tables laid even as the Holroyds' marriage hits the rocks.











This is Our Youth


by



Kenneth Longagan



This Is Our Youth is rich and sad and wry in its cruel-to-be-kind portrayal of disillusioned adolescents struggling to take up the business and onus of grown-up life.
How do you put away childish things, it asks, when you aren't ready to pick up adult ones?











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."













Return to Haifa



Penned in 1969, "Return to Haifi" is the story of two couples one Israeli, one Palestinian that ignites during the Arab-Israeli war in 1948, and it involves the Jewish couple raising a Palestinian baby, abandoned and forlorn in the wartime strife, as their own. In the play, the Palestinian couple returns to Haifa after the opening of the borders, following the Israeli victory in the Six Day War in 1967. They find their child fighting in the Israeli army, as well as the Jewish couple who were once themselves refugees and who surely saved the child's life.
