Possibly the most hysterical siblings since the Marx Brothers, Amy and David Sedaris have written The Book of Liz, a zany stage play about discovering your own self-worth. First discovered on NPR, David has since written a series of bestsellers which include Me Talk Pretty One Day, Naked and When You Are Engulfed in Flames. Amy was the star of Comedy Central's Strangers With Candy and continues to be an ubiquitous (and hilarious) presence on film and TV. Together they have written The Book of Liz about the outrageous adventures of Sister Elizabeth Donderstock, a devoted maker of cheeseballs who ventures out of her tiny religious community to encounter a host of colorful characters -- including Ukrainians with cockney accents, restaurants run by recovering alcoholics and a certain talking peanut.

Little Brother — January 13, 2012 – January 22, 2012
World Premiere. Adapted from the bestselling novel by Cory Doctorow, Little Brother 17-year-old tech hacker Marcus is suddenly apprehended by the Department of Homeland Security for days of merciless interrogation on San Francisco’s Treasure Island. When no one besides his friends believes his story, he’s left with only one option: take down the system himself. Little Brother is a love letter to the Bay, a sweet teenage romance, and a frightening predictor of things to come.
A Bright Room Called Day — March 9, 2012 – March 21, 2012
From the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Angels in America comes a powerful portrayal of individuals confronted with political catastrophe. A Bright Room Called Day follows a group of artists and activists struggling for preservation in 1930s Berlin as Germany surrenders to the seduction of fascism. The play creates a stark counterpoint between then and now through the passionate outpourings of Zillah, a slightly paranoid and extremely passionate contemporary American woman, sifting through the past in Berlin. Kushner’s first play is a lyrical, savagely funny piece of theatre, as well as a warning in these troublesome times.
