When Sherlock Holmes finds a stolen gem inside a Christmas goose, he and trusty sidekick Dr. Watson set off on one of their patented adventures in Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Christmas Goose. Based on one of Holmes creator Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's most popular stories -- "The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle" -- this festive mystery play is a charming holiday whodunit that follows the famous duo as they attempt to track down the mystery in Yuletide London. The show enjoyed a popular previous run as a live radio play, and returns to Raven Theatre now as a fully staged production. Live musical accompaniment and a closing sing-along add to the show's merriment. Learn More

<p>Ibsen’s masterpiece depicts a woman’s inevitable road to tragedy. Hedda has recently married a kind and reliable yet unexciting scholar. She is visited by two old acquaintances: a female schoolmate and another scholar. The former has saved the latter from an unsavory lifestyle, helping him find success as a writer; Hedda is resentful both of his talent and her schoolmate’s influence on it. As Hedda resists the predictable world she has chosen, she unleashes a sequence of unfortunate events that brings her story to a shocking conclusion. Is Hedda a heroine, a villain, a victim… or all of the above?</p>
<p>Michael Menendian’s electrifying interpretation brings Hedda Gabler from the script to the stage with roaring tenacity and proves that the life of Hedda Gabler is still relevant to audiences today.
Hedda Gabler begs the question: How far would you go to escape?</p>
