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

- Best Play of 2013 — The Guardian (UK) and London Evening Standard
A hot-shot F16 fighter pilot’s unexpected pregnancy ends her career in the sky. Repurposed to flying remote-controlled drones in Afghanistan from an air-conditioned trailer near Vegas, the Pilot struggles through surreal twelve-hour shifts far from the battlefield, hunting terrorists by day and being a wife and mother by night. A tour de force play for one actress, GROUNDED flies from the heights of lyricism to the shallows of workaday existence, targeting our assumptions about war, family, and the power of storytelling.
