If you can't go to the National Theatre in London, catch one of their productions -- like A Small Family Business -- streaming live to the big screen at Irvine Barclay Theatre. Penned by Olivier Award-winning playwright Alan Ayckbourn (Bedroom Farce, A Chorus of Disapproval), A Small Family Business premiered at the National Theatre in 1987 and scored the Evening Standard Theatre Award for Best Play. Jack McCracken's a man of principle in a corrupt world ... until he takes over his father-in-law's business. Soon after, a private detective armed with some compromising information approaches him, and Jack's integrity fades away as he discovers there are a few too many thieves and adulterers in his extended family.

Witness the inspiring choreography that sold out performances and received a standing ovation at Walt Disney Concert Hall’s REDCAT. The Wooden Floor promises a rare experience as three of the nation’s most interesting experimental choreographers – Mark Haim, Melanie Ríos Glaser, and Nami Yamamoto – create work in partnership with 73 low income youth. The youth of The Wooden Floor emerge as riveting performers through an artistic lens that extracts the duality of their newness and the wisdom of lives seemingly long lived. This work is original, inventive, unapologetic and idiosyncratic. The performances break down ethnic, gender and age stereotypes about who can inspire, create, perform and contribute to the evolution of the genre of contemporary dance.
The Wooden Floor, previously known as Saint Joseph Ballet, is a place that inspires and nurtures youth to thrive. It helps them strip away the labels that other people put on them until all thats left is an individual brimming with potential. It is a safe place. The Wooden Floor is a national model and a jewel of the community. It is a solid foundation from where kids can step absolutely anywhere they want. Because in this place, they find their confidence. They learn excellence. And they learn how to move. Forward.
