Cliff is a tough and foul-mouthed cross-country trucker whose rig broke down. Rose is a dreamer, a lover of poetry, and a highly sensitive girl who works behind the candy counter at the Five-and-Dime in South Philadelphia. Against all odds, Cliff and Rose meet in the Five and Dime shop. Rose invites Cliff up to her apartment, where the two divulge their dreams, their fantasies, and their dark pasts. Despite their differences, they share a lot together and bring out the unexpected in one another.

When 26-year-old Marisol Perez is attacked on the subway and rescued by a guardian angel, we are introduced to a world gone wild where food is scarce, pollution is plentiful and violence rules. On her journey, Marisol meets a series of bizarre characters, including a homeless man in a wheelchair in search of his lost skin and a woman beaten by police because she exceeded her credit card limit. Backstage describes this “thrill ride” as both darkly humorous and a commentary on social injustice that is “consistently fascinating.”

$13 for adults, $10 for seniors, $7 for faculty & staff, and $5 for students

Welcome to Middletown, where you can eavesdrop on the kind of conversations and insights usually left unsaid. Inspired by Thornton Wilder’s Our Town, Eno provides a twist by having the villagers reveal their innermost fears and piercing life observations as if they were ordinary tidbits of conversation. The play unfolds in a series of vignettes depicting encounters between seemingly unexceptional people that are surprisingly thought-provoking.

Four friends in their late thirties face the trials and tribulations of major life events with an eye toward quickly approaching middle-age. Playwright Melissa Gibson plays games with viewers’ thoughts and expectations through a combination of wit and melancholy comedy. “The play’s delicate pace, richly patterned wordplay and undercurrent of rue combine to cast a moving spell that lingers in the memory, like a sad-sweet pop song whose chorus you can’t shake,” says The New York Times.

Price: 

$13 for adults, $10 for seniors, $7 for faculty & staff, and $5 for students
