One of the most infamous figures in American history -- Lizzie Borden -- comes to the stage in the innovative drama Blood Relations. Written by Sharon Pollock, one of Canada's premier playwrights, this psychological murder mystery delves into the facts and speculation surrounding the unsolved 1892 double murder of Andrew and Abby Borden. Their daughter Lizzie was tried and acquitted for the murders -- but not before becoming the country's first tabloid celebrity. This dreamlike play within a play takes place ten years after the trial, as Lizzie and her actress friend reenact the various roles from the night of the murders, and the truth of that night begins to come into focus.

“_Two and a half hours of absolute bliss … The entire cast is nothing less than superb …Tomkins has turned in some wonderful shows in the past but this one, I have to say, is nothing short of … well … BRILLIANTSKI!”—Broadway World20110318
When the Soviets set out to create a Broadway musical, they decide they’ll need to bring in some real New York writers – by force, if necessary. Enter Howard and Murray, two down and out musical theatre writers, who are on the brink of throwing in the towel. Kidnapped, taken to Moscow, and forced to fix the worst musical ever written, these two characters suddenly find themselves working under the gun…literally! With an uproarious and upbeat score, Iron Curtain is a knock ’em down hit with laughs at every corner.
