A hilarious and tender-hearted play which tells a love story the likes of which you’ve never heard before. We meet Anthony Reilly and Rosemary Muldoon, lovelorn farmers in the Midlands of Ireland, neither of them in the prime of youth, who are true babes in the woods when it comes to romance. On top of their cluelessness in love, they are beset by both their inner demons and familial rivalries as they struggle to gain traction in a relationship stymied by petty grievances and misunderstandings.”
“… [the play] sparkles with Shanley’s witty dialogue, both funny and poignant.” – (Variety); “… a valentine to the wonder and weirdness of love.” – (New York Daily News);
“… a soft-hearted comedy freckled with dark reflections on … life and the thorns of love.” – (The New York Times).
“… It’s impossible to see this play and not feel buoyed by it, touched by it, and seduced by it.” – (www.tucson.com/entertainment).

In the naughty and rowdy 1930s world of burlesque, Chauncey Miles is one of its shining stars. At a time when it was easy to play gay and hazardous to be gay, Chauncey’s laughter-creating clownery on stage stands in sharp contrast to his life away from the stage. Wryly comic, poignant.

When one of the few African-American students at a small New England college receives hate mail, Sarah Daniels, the dean of students, suddenly finds herself faced with a super-explosive situation. This play, with insight and humor, follows Sarah’s attempts to navigate the maze of posturing, accusations, and soul-searching on political correctness.

Love may conquer all, but not before two pairs of lovers are put to the trying test of assorted mis-understandings, and obstacles that others, and they themselves, throw into their paths. With a plot brimming with deceptions of all kinds, masquerading, eaves-dropping, and trick-playing, the author created a high comedy of wit, romance and villainy that has been delighting audiences worldwide for 420 years!

Two renowned scientists, Niels Bohr (Danish) and Werner Heisenberg (German), once collaborators and friends, meet in 1941, when the world is at war and they represent opposite sides. The play gives us an imagined picture of this encounter, treating us to a fascinating discourse on human relationships, memories, personal convictions, and on the fate of the world in the atomic age. Winner of Tony Award for Best Play (2000)
