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

After a devastating death, can a once-happy family find its way past mutual blame?
Travel through the delights and occasional mishaps of a child’s worldview, tumble into a young adult’s view of her family falling apart and finally land in the world of the grounded woman of today. Her deep understanding of her mother’s love and her own love as a mother embraces her very approach to life, encapsulated like her beloved chrysalis and its emerging butterfly. The resulting pilgimage of self-understanding and acceptance takes the audience on a journey of laughter, music and poignant reflection.
