Cosmic chaos erupts in this apocalyptic comedy of urban realities and guardian angels. Marisol Perez, a young single professional woman living in the asphalt jungle of the Bronx, finds herself sucked into a whirlpool of homelessness, violence and racism when her guardian angel deserts her to fight in what may be the final battle in heaven. -Playbill.com


"Winner of the 1993 Obie Award. An apocalyptic urban fantasy which urges society to 'wake up' and somehow find a way to recover the long-lost and much-needed compassion for our fellow man, as this is the only way to save our world." -Dramatists Play Service


"...Rivera's cruelly slanted world view...is fascinating." -NY Post


"An urban nightmare that grows increasingly bleaker for its young heroine, "Marisol" is a dark fantasia that reflects a number of the social and spiritual troubles of the early 1990s." - The New York Times


Marisol is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.

Age Rating: PG-13


Runtime: Approximately 2 hours


Frame/Works Discussion via Zoom: 7:00 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 9


At the start of the Great Recession, one of the last auto stamping plants in Detroit is on shaky ground. Each of the workers have to make choices on how to move forward if their plant goes under. Shanita has to decide how she'll support herself and her unborn child, Faye has to decide how and where she'll live, and Dez has to figure out how to make his ambitious dreams a reality. Power dynamics shift as their manager Reggie is torn between doing right by his work family, and by the red tape in his office. Powerful and tense, Skeleton Crew is the third of Dominique Morisseau's Detroit cycle trilogy. ⁠-Samuel French


"Ms. Morisseau works her big themes on a small, closely patterned canvas.'" - The New York Times


"In "Skeleton Crew," the American worker, cranky, caring, overburdened and endangered, is given her 21st century dramatic due." -L.A. Times


"Skeleton Crew" is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc. www.concordtheatricals.com

Written by George Bernard Shaw


Age Rating: PG-13


Runtime: Approximately 1.5 hours


Frame/Works Discussion via Zoom: 7:00 p.m. on Monday, March 22, 2021


Saint Joan is Bernard Shaw's greatest play. At its center is the most remarkable teenage girl in history. But who is she? The divinely-inspired savior of France? A dangerously clever charlatan? Or a pathetically deluded country girl? It all depends on your point of view. Whatever she is, eventually Joan is bound to become an embarrassment to the male-dominated world she has turned upside-down. And then what? -Shaw Festival


"Joan's religious fanaticism, reaching us through the perspective of 500 years and then filtered through Shaw's imagination, becomes the protest of a plain-spoken individual conscience." -The Guardian


"She had appeared to violate the rules. She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted. And that persistence, deadlier than the kind that earned Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren her infamous rebuke, led directly to Joan's death at the stake. -The Buffalo News

Written by Naomi Iizuka


Age Rating: PG-13


Runtime: Approximately 2.5 hours


Frame/Works Discussion via Zoom: 7:00 p.m. on Monday, May 3


A visceral blend of classical mythology and real life stories told by street kids, Naomi lizuka's Polaroid Stories journeys into a dangerous world where myth-making fulfills a fierce need for transcendence, where storytelling has the power to transform a reality in which characters' lives are continually threatened, devalued and effaced. Not all the stories these characters tell are true; some are lies, wild yams, clever deceits, baroque fabrications. But whether or not a homeless kid invents an incredible history for himself isn't the point, explains diarist-of-the-street Jim Grimsley. "All these stories and lies add up to something like the truth." Inspired in part by Ovid's Metamorphoses, Iizuka's Polaroid Stories takes place on an abandoned pier on the outermost edge of a city, a way stop for dreamers, dealers and desperadoes, a no-man's land where runaways seek camaraderie, refuge and escape. Serpentine routes from the street to the heart characterize the interactions in this spellbinding tale of young people pushed to society's fringe. Informed, as well, by interviews with young prostitutes and street kids, Polaroid Stories conveys a whirlwind of psychic disturbance, confusion and longing. Like their mythic counterparts, these modem-day mortals are engulfed by needs that burn and consume. Their language mixes poetry and profanity, imbuing the play with lyricism and great theatrical force.
