Nothing -- not war, drugs, revelation or even plastic surgery -- transforms people like the power of love. Even so, few transformations are as shocking as the one at the heart of Mrs. Charles, the new play from Ruth Virkus. It's 1878 and Charles and Walter are in love, but the harsh realities of Philadelphia society forbid even the slightest hint of a relationship. So, when Walter is later offered a chance to open a milling concern in Minneapolis, the two lovers hatch an audacious plan: arrive in booming "Mill City" as Walter and Charlotte. This bold and risky decision illuminates every facet of this historical romance from Freshwater Theatre Company. Jimmy LeDuc directs at the Nimbus Theater. Learn More

Freshwater Theatre Company is proud to present The Book of Liz by acclaimed writer David Sedaris and his sister, actress and writer Amy Sedaris, starring Mame Pelletier and directed by Scot Moore at the new Nimbus Theatre in northeast Minneapolis!
Sister Elizabeth (Liz) Donderstock (of the Squeamish colony) is about to be squeezed out of her life’s work – making world class cheese balls that almost single-handedly fund the colony. Her midlife version of Rumspringa and her colony’s attempts to cope with her absence paint the backdrop for this smart comedy by the brilliant brother/sister duo of David and Amy Sedaris.
