Following in November, is Clybourne Park by Bruce Norris. A clever,funny insightful play about race and class. Winner of the 2011 Pulitzer Prize.

February ushers in a dark comedy by renowned Philadelphia playwright Bruce Graham. Any Given Monday is a hilarious black comedy and biting contemporary satire on today’s society.

Our fourth production ,Detroit ’67 takes place in the year of the riots as two African-American siblings are running an after-hours nightclub in their basement.A compelling tale of people trying to find their place in society written by the award-winning playwright Dominique Morisseau.
