Winner of the Obie Award for Best Play, The Cryptogram is an acclaimed drama from one of the most celebrated, prolific and influential writers of the 20th century: David Mamet (Glengarry Glen Ross, Wag the Dog). Spotlighting the terrible -- and sometimes terrifying -- moment when childhood's ease and innocence vanishes, this gripping drama unfolds over the course of one late evening in 1959. A young boy waits up for his father, in eager anticipation of their pending camping trip. Denying his mother's urges to go to sleep, the boy is entertained by a family friend whose grown-up speak begins to reveal itself as a code that hides within it a number of uncomfortable secrets. Mixing mercurial intelligence with Hitchcockian menace, The Cryptogram is a spooky, subtle and witty piece of work. Learn More
Written in Chicago in 1905, The Marvelous Land of Oz was a huge success as a novel and was later adapted as a stage production that premiered at Chicago’s Garrick Theatre. It was later produced as a short silent film in L. Frank Baum’s Fairylogue and Radio Plays; a “multi-media” traveling production produced by Chicago’s Selig-Polyscope film studio utilizing live actors, glass slides, hand-colored silent film and even Baum, himself, as the narrator.
New American Folk Theatre and Treehouse are pleased to present this original adaptation with book and music by Anthony Whitaker. The Marvelous Land of Oz is an experience for the whole family to enjoy.
