Noises Off
In this rip-roaring classic, the audience is treated to a hilarious behind-the-scenes peek at an acting troupe rehearsing and performing the farce Nothing On. Despite nerves, dropped lines and technical difficulties, they make it through rehearsal and open the show. As time goes by, things deteriorate until pandemonium ensues and axe-wielding co-stars, drunken cast members and misplaced sardines take center stage during a disaster of a performance that threatens to jinx the old saying, “The show must go on.”
Through December 16

The Wichhams
It’s Christmas at Pemberley! A followup to last season’s hit “Miss Bennet,” “The Wickhams” takes us downstairs where servants are bustling with the arrival of holiday guests.

Prescient Harbingers: Gloria, Hooded and Hype Man

In “GLORIA,” a Pulitzer finalist, sincerity meets cynicism meets hilarity as millennials mock the Xers and boomers in a field—print media—that itself is soon to be obsolete. Like journalism, it asks “What is crisis but an opportunity?” and “Who has the right to tell whose story and for how much money?”

“HOODED” is a breathtakingly subversive dead-serious comedy that unwraps what is no laughing matter: race relations in America and the peril young Black men are in. Street savvy Tru thinks preppie adoptee Marquis has lost his “blackness” and pens a manual entitled “Being Black for Dummies” as they navigate a world of cheerleaders, Black Lives Matter, 2Pac, identity politics, Nietzsche, the police and Apollo.

In “HYPE MAN,”a break beat play, hip-hop culture is a crucible where issues of racial identity, gender inequity, career ambition, and friendship converge and collide.

Rhinoceros
Sunny afternoon. Newbury Street. Meeting a friend for coffee. You’re borderline depressed … crappy job, too neurotic to make the first move with a “good pal” co-worker, wallowing in self-pity … and maybe just a little hung-over. Everything is normal. And all at once, everyone you know turns into a rhinoceros. Adapted and directed by Ryan Underbakke, the play is a brand-new take on Eugene Ionesco’s 20th century absurdist masterpiece, reimagined for the 21st. Requested donation is $5, but everyone is welcome.
November 15 – 17, 7 p.m.
