In this Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning drama set in the Bronx in 1964, Sister Aloysius, the principal of a Catholic school in the borough, takes matters into her own hands when she suspects that young newcomer Father Flynn has sexually abused the school's only black student. As she wrestles with her doubts, she questions an idealistic young nun and the mother of the alleged victim, perhaps changing them forever.

This gripping drama about suspicion, scandal and the elusiveness of moral certainty stars Karen MacDonald. Learn More

Once upon a time there was a Boy, a Girl, and their Baby who lived together in idyllic bliss, far away, so they thought, from anything that could harm them. One day, a strange Woman and an even stranger Man found them. Suddenly, there were only questions, memories, doubts, hopes, fears, truths, and lies. And then there was a Boy, a Girl, a Man, and a Woman. And a baby. Or was there a baby? Exquisite Corps Presents The Play About the Baby, the contemporary masterpiece by Pulitzer-Prize winning playwright Edward Albee (author of Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf, Seascape, and others). In Baby’s world, nothing makes sense except everything, reality is only one side of illusion, and memory has a mind of its own.
