A political comedy based on the novel An Unsocial Socialist by George Bernard Shaw, Smash tells the story of Sidney, an extremely wealthy socialist who bails on his bride on their big day because he needs to stay focused on his big plans to ... overthrow the British government. Eventually infiltrating a women's college, Sidney plans to take over the school while planting the potent seeds of radical socialism into the minds of these future companions of cabinet ministers and kings. But there are just a few things -- like love triangles, mistaken identities, Marx, pistols and proletariats -- standing in the way of Sidney's plans in this witty satire. Learn More

Christmas is a time for sharing great food, great company and—let`s face it—the occasional bad gift. What happens when a well intentioned gift goes horribly wrong and spins a gathering of friends into Christmas calamity? theatre Q tells such a tale with the world premiere of the holiday comedy Keep the Yuletide Gay, by Dale Albright.
Part It’s a Wonderful Life, part Blithe Spirit, Keep the Yuletide Gay tells the story of five friends gathering for their annual Christmas dinner and gift exchange. Holly, the host, welcomes her three best single girlfriends and her (presumably single) gay best friend, Warren: a group collectively known as the Single Belles. One of the Belles, Fran, hires a mystic to tell Holly the she has turned Warren straight. What Fran doesn’t know is that the mystic really has the goods and casts a spell that indeed turns Warren hetero. Fran also doesn’t know about Warren’s surprise guest: his new boyfriend Chad. Starting with a badly set dinner table and deteriorating into an incredibly awkward Christmas party complete with an alcoholic witch, some Lindsay Lohan perfume, warts, a bloody Santa, a Lionel Ritchie/Diana Ross duet, burnt dinner, some very unexpected skirt chasing, and, of course, the world’s worst Christmas gift, Keep the Yuletide Gay ultimately reminds us what it means to be a friend.
