We proudly resume our 2021-2022 Season!



The Book of Grace 
by Suzan-Lori Parks

“Sometimes the Alien is right in your own home. Sometimes right in your own blood. And you’ve got to build a wall around it.” Grace is a waitress who lives in a small border town in south Texas with her husband Vet, a border patrol agent. She encourages Vet’s troubled son Buddy to return home and reunite with his father in time for a celebration honoring Vet’s service. What ensues is a battle for power, revenge, and release from past traumas. In BOOK OF GRACE, Pulitzer-prize winning playwright Suzan-Lori Parks, explodes the American family portrait to expose the borders and fences destroying the American home and by extension, the country.

Innominate 
by Afsaneh Aayani
Innominate is a devised, experimental piece by Afsaneh Aayani. Dually inspired by Pablo Picasso’s painting, Guernica, and Iran’s Green Revolution, the production juxtaposes the terrible fate that innumerable innocents meet during war with the pervasive apathy of the majority that allows more of these tragedies to occur. Innominate will lead the audience on a surreal trip through reality with a destination of self-actualization that only each audience member individually can determine. Puppetry, mixed media, and choreography are integral components of this dance-theatre piece, which explores Aayani’s personal experience as an immigrant from a war-torn Iran.
