My Mother's Keeper
 April 27 – May 27

Two shows on Mother's Day
2:00 and 7:30
My Mother's Keeper moves fluidly back and forth between 1914 and the present, taking place within the memories of four generations of women in a show business family.  Looking through the lens of the mother-daughter dynamic, My Mother's Keeper is an examination of our matriarchal inheritance, with all its inhearent - and inherited - blessings and curses.  It is a moving, sometimes disturbing, ultimately healing work.

Blackbird
​May 10 - 27
Blackbird by David Harrower, Directed by Ken Kelleher

WINNER, BEST PLAY: 2007 OLIVER AWARD, 2006 CRITICS CIRCLE AWARD.
 
David Harrower’s most acclaimed and most controversial play, Blackbird "is theater at its most elemental," says The New York Times. In a littered factory break room, 55-year-old Ray and 27-year-old Una engage in a confrontation so real and raw that you feel you should look away. But how can you? Fifteen years earlier, he seduced her and the two had a sexual affair...when she was 12. 

What emerges from the recriminations and explanations is a complex relationship that blurs the boundaries between love and lust, obsession and abuse. Uncompromising, shocking and surprisingly tender, Blackbird will leave you hanging on every word and every uncomfortable silence.

The Bay Improvisers​
May 26

"May I get a word?" requests a member of The Bay Improvisers. An audience member shouts out yoyo!

And so begins a scene using yoyos as its theme.  Audience suggestions are the fuel that propels the actors into action. From that point on everything is completely improvised accompanied by a lot of LOL. They’re always a big hit !

Tickets $20 at the door
