Harking back to the charged family dynamics of Eugene O'Neill's Long Day's Journey into Night, the new play Miracles in the Fall -- winner of the 2013 Dionysos Cup Festival of New Plays -- is a powerful investigation of the intersection of secrets, faith and forgiveness. Set in 1968 Detroit, the play centers on a young Dominican nun, Clare Connelly, who is the caretaker of her alcoholic father, Jimmy. In due course, she uncovers the very secrets that have thrown a pall of shame over the family for many years. A maverick Jesuit priest and Clare's own brother Charlie inspire and challenge Clare in equal measure throughout this sensitive and intelligent drama. Written by local playwright Chuck O'Connor (High Hard Ones), Miracles in the Fall now comes to Greenhouse Theater Center. Learn More

In the wake of the death of her roommate and dance partner, Anna finds her life in more flux than she ever imagined possible. Thrust out of her comfort zone, Anna struggles to have courage of convictions at a time when she can’t be sure of the nature or implications of those convictions. In her struggles to transform herself into a choreographer, she finds herself in the arms of two men — the loving, understanding, and wealthy Burton and Pale, the outspoken, ebullient, and unpredictable brother of her deceased partner. Decisions are not cut and dry. Anna must wrestle with the concept and practice of self and follow her heart when her head is fraught with indecision and suspicion.
