When the patriarch of the far-flung Weston clan suddenly goes missing, the family gathers at their Oklahoma homestead waiting for news -- and ends up re-opening a lifetime's worth of emotional wounds and buried secrets. Populated with tour-de-force characters like Violet, the prescription drug-addicted, chain-smoking, acid-tongued family matriarch, Tracy Letts' August: Osage County won the 2008 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the Tony Award for Best Play, and was recently adapted into an Oscar-nominated film starring Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts.

Illyria: A Twelfth Night Musical
Music & Lyrics by John R. Briggs and Eric Frampton
Directed by John R. Briggs
Shakespeare’s most musical play gets the royal treatment in this eclectic adaptation from the creator of 2010’s smash hit Shrew: the Musical. Two different women grieve the loss of a brother; one swears off men, while the other puts on a pair of trousers and joins them, setting off a comedy of errors that makes for a raucous, rocking good time.
Much Ado About Nothing
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Richard Garner
All is fair in love and war, and sometimes the two come hand in hand. When the kindly governor of Messina opens his home -- and that of his daughter and his niece -- to a group of soldiers returning from the front, passions ignite. Romances are born, even between the stubborn rivals Beatrice and Benedick, who have both disavowed love, while secretly harboring feelings for one another. The road to love proves a hilly one, filled with ups and downs, but not without a few laughs along the way.
The Importance of Being Earnest
By Oscar Wilde
Directed by Sabin Epstein
The turn of the century brought us some of most treasured and clever tales in literature, and those of the great Oscar Wilde are no exception. His comedic masterpiece follows the exploits of two young men -- Jack and Algernon -- each masquerading as a libertine named Earnest in order to pursue their lady love. But when they are caught in the act, a true farce unfolds, and a very real Earnest is revealed.
