Jeff Daniels, the actor both funny enough to star in Dumb and Dumber and smart enough to lead HBO's The Newsroom, is also a hilarious and insightful playwright. Daniels' outrageous comedy, Escanaba in da Moonlight, was an instant hit from the moment it first premiered at the acclaimed Purple Rose Theatre. Follow the story of the Soady clan, a family of "Yoopers" -- residents of Michigan's vast, underpopulated Upper Peninsula -- and their escapades at a ramshackle deer camp on the opening day of hunting season. Having never bagged a buck, 43-year-old Reuben Soady is determined to kill his first deer with a little help from his Native American wife. Michael Storm directs this hilarious second installment in TheatreFIRST's 20th anniversary season. Learn More

Quotes & Highlights
- "Simplicity is magical in <em>Orlando</em>. That’s as true for Sarah Ruhl’s lovingly crafted adaptation of Virginia Woolf’s time-bending, gender-shifting novel as it is for Woolf’s mesmerizing prose. In the TheatreFirst <em>Orlando</em> ... the simple directness of staging and acting work an incremental wonder all their own." --<em><a target="_blank" href="http://www.theatrefirst.com/sf-chronicle-orlando-review-magically-shifting-gender-time">San Francisco Chronicle</a> </em>
