Curse of the Starving Class

By Sam Shepard, Directed by Jeff Miller

The Tate family is in serious trouble. Parents Ella and Weston are cornered and feuding, each struggling at cross-purposes to unload the family’s homestead and get out from under crushing debt. Meanwhile, their raucous and unpredictable teenage kids Emma and Wesley fight to scratch out an existence of their own.

The earliest of Pulitzer Prize winner Sam Shepard’s renowned cycle of family tragicomedies, CURSE OF THE STARVING CLASS balances a searing portrait of a rural, working class family in distress against savage dark comedy in Shepard’s trademark style.Read more

Cancún

A hilarious and intriguing comedy about the dreams of what could have been…

Every year without fail, two couples, close friends, spend their vacation in a remote location.

In Galcerán’s own words, Cancún “is a popular, sophisticated comedy blending humor and reflection while eliciting both laughter and emotion.” All performances are in SPANISH with English Surtitles on Friday and Saturday.Read more

Bootycandy

By Robert O'Hara, Directed by Vance Johnson

Robert O’Hara’s semi-autobiographical and wildly subversive comedy tells the story of Sutter, a young gay black man on an outrageous odyssey through his childhood home, his church, dive bars, motel rooms, and his grandmother’s nursing home. At times poignant, shocking, hilarious, and wise, BOOTYCANDY is a kaleidoscope of scenes, sermons, sketches, and daring meta-theatrics.
