Tarell Alvin McCraney's latest acclaimed play tracks the coming-of-age of a group of talented young African-American prep-school singers whose choral prowess is woven seamlessly into the story. Pharus, the undisputed superstar of the choir, is searching for the courage to let his true self shine through, in this work by MacArthur Fellowship-winner McCraney (The Brother/Sister Plays), who's been called "without question, the hottest young playwright in America" (Chicago Tribune). The West Coast premiere reunites director Trip Cullman, star Jeremy Pope and several other cast members from its 2013 New York run. Learn More

Love is a battlefield … and DITCH is a whimsical new comedy that delights in an irreverent and humorous look at the trials and tribulations of love, and relationships. Who we love and who we try desperately not to love determines much of where we go in life. William and Beth are two people who grapple from within for their truest selves, and for the ability to love honestly.
