Award-winning actress/playwright Chris Black enters the ring for a dramatic one-woman show in Tough, which is inspired by the life of famed boxer John L. Sullivan, who traveled coast-to-coast challenging people to fights. While Sullivan's background, rise to fame and decline motivate the performance, Black's interest also lies in what it means to be strong and how athletes and performers harness that "special something" to become extraordinary. Black opens the show by throwing her hat in the ring and announcing the rules of the game, all while enjoying some good whiskey. Don't miss this unique, gender-bending performance that mixes power and poignancy. Learn More

Another one of Miller's masterpieces. Reasonably good staging and the acting was, for the most part, quite good. Occasional mis-lines, and one or two actors were a bit stiff....but all in all, a fine production of a play that is not easy to do. Strongly recommended.

All My Sons, the first great success of Arthur Miller’s supremely influential career, is a compelling story of love, guilt and the corrupting power of greed. Joe Keller (Randy Hurst) is alleged to have supplied World War II fighter planes with defective engines, leading to the deaths of innocent pilots – a crime for which his business partner took the fall. One of Keller’s sons, himself a pilot, is thought to have been killed in action. But his mother (Joyce Henderson) can’t accept his death and equally, can’t accept that her dead son’s fiancée has transferred her affections to her other son. The confrontations that ensue lead to the uncovering of a shameful family secret.
