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

A thought-provoking text, expertly interpreted, BooKKeepers transports us to immediate pre-war Berlin, in the grip of Nazi rule. After the war, the surviving characters are given a chance to account for their actions, and to pass their story on to the next generation. You cannot watch this play without reflecting on parallels of opporession and control throughout the world and through time (including our own country and time).
K (ostensibly Kafka), with his emotions and moods, Madame Paulus, with her ironic delivery ("I was no more of a Nazi than the next woman."), and Madame Paulus' younger self in Berlin, with her airs and her ambivalence, are stand-outs in a strong cast.

This was an amazing play! Dark, thought provoking and well played. The whole cast was deep and well rehearsed, you feel drawn in immediately! The timely excerpts from the penal colony are wonderful and the "officer" is fantastically portrayed!
Featuring: Charles Keen, Martha Luehrmann, Nastassia Maltsava, Shawn Morgan, Nathan Putnam, Andrea Satin, Alejandro Torres, Ket Watters and Christopher Weddle.
