Packed with disasters, demons, giants and scenes of unforgettable awe and terror, the Book of Genesis has inspired centuries of artists, from the likes of John Milton (1667's Paradise Lost) to Darren Aronofsky (2014's Noah). Now Timothy Gregory, founding director of Provision Theater, has created Jacob, a new work based on that ancient text. A retelling of the story of Jacob, the Hebrew patriarch who wrestled with God, this play focuses on the Isaacson twins, brothers consumed by a deadly secret and a murderous rivalry. Everything comes to a head when one brother's dark world of fear, manipulation and deception collides with a supernatural force of truth and redemption. Gregory and Lia Mortensen co-direct this world premiere at Provision Theater. Learn More

Directed by Tim Gregory
After a critically acclaimed world-premiere production last season, this beautiful, moving holiday treat is back by popular demand. When a broken-hearted boy loses the treasured wooden nativity given to him by his now deceased father, his mother goes to the local woodcarver in hopes of obtaining a replacement. Jonathan Toomey, known to the village as “Mr. Gloomy” takes the job – but refuses to promise anything by Christmas. But when Thomas decides to watch the woodcarver work, the commission takes their relationship to unexpected places; even as Christmas approaches, the real miracle is the transformation created in each of their lives.
Based on the award-winning children’s book by Susan Wojchiechowski
Starring Provision Theater Company member Susan Moniz
