When an elderly man -- a heartbroken widower -- is almost struck down by a car, the young driver responsible for the near-accident is sentenced to community service: helping the old man with his household chores for six months. This heartwarming comedy about two very different men who don't even want to be in the same room together is also the moving story of two lonely spirits who gradually come to know and care about each other. Written by Jeff Baron (Mother's Day, Mr. & Mrs. God), Visiting Mr. Green is a poignant comedy that leaves a lasting impression. Learn More

The Twentieth Century Way was awarded the 2011 PEN Award for Drama and the 2010 NY International Fringe Festival Award for Overall Excellence in Production of a Play, garnering critical accolades from publications like the New York Times and Variety. Based on a little-known incident in history, this theatrical thrill ride explores the collision of reality and fantasy as two actors, auditioning for a film, end up juggling roles that eventually lead to entrapment of homosexuals for “social vagrancy” in the Long Beach, California of 1914.
