THE TEMPEST  

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Jeff Sanders
Guest Artist: Gene Engene as "Prospero" 

Teeming with fairies, monsters, shipwrecks and magic, The Tempest is Shakespeare's last and most mature romance. The deposed Duke Prospero and his lovely daughter, Miranda, are shipwrecked on a small island where nothing is quite as it seems. But, as they separate fantasy from authenticity, they eventually discover a "brave new world" of love, harmony and redemption.

Spring Quarter 2018

CLYBOURNE PARK 

by Bruce Norris
Directed by, Josh Stamoolis - Guest Director

Winner of the 2011 Pulitzer Prize and the 2012 Tony Award for Best Play, Clybourne Park explodes in two outrageous acts set fifty years apart. Act One takes place in 1959, as white community leaders anxiously try to stop the sale of a home to a black family. Act Two is set in the same house in the present day, as the now predominantly African-American neighborhood battles to hold its ground in the face of gentrification.  "Vital, sharp-witted and ferociously smart!" -- NY Times. "A theatrical treasure...indisputably, uproariously funny." -- Entertainment Weekly.
