Set in a haunted mansion in rural Ireland in 1822, The Veil weaves Ireland's troubled colonial history into a transfixing story about the search for love and the circularity of time. Written by Conor McPherson, the Tony-winning playwright of The Seafarer, the atmospheric play features a crumbling estate, a hasty marriage to settle debts, strange voices and, ultimately, a séance -- the consequences of which are catastrophic. This is the U.S. premiere of McPherson's acclaimed drama, which debuted in 2011 at London's National Theatre, where it was described as a Chekhovian play "full of ghosts and things that go bump in the night ... [a] strange and fitfully entertaining drama" (The Telegraph). Learn More

Precipice Improv has just the thing! Join them for a special Valentine’s Day Improv Workshop. Designed for both singles and couples, and suitable for everyone regardless of experience, the workshop will guide you through fun and playful exercises in a gentle and supportive atmosphere.

Improv training isn’t just for actors or comedians. Much as yoga helps you to stretch your body and relax your mind, Improv exercises help you to relax your body and mind, and build skills like self-confidence, communication, adaptability, positivity, playfulness, empathy, observation, trust and collaboration,
And, oh yeah: Improv is fun!
And, as a special treat, a performance by Flashbang Improv follows the workshop.
