by Blake Hackler

The premiere of a new play about the need to belong and the effects of viral social messaging in small-town Texas. What’s real, what’s imagined, what needs to be real – and what’s convincingly well-acted among a group of high school students? Social pressure shapes the answers in this intelligently observed, theatrically original and emotionally compelling new work.

Lady of 121 Street

by Stephen Adly Guirgis

A group of old friends find themselves at Harlem’s Ortiz Funeral Home to mourn the death of a beloved nun from their childhood. As they bounce off each other with old hurts and the harsh realities of grown-up life, a few lives – and a murder mystery – begin to unravel. An off-Broadway hit when it debuted in 2003, it’s a hilarious, raunchy and ultimately very touching play by Guirgis, who won the 2015 Pulitzer Prize for drama.
