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

Created with and tailored to the dynamic talents of the A.C.T. M.F.A. Program class of 2011, this irresistible new play takes a sharp, entertaining, and darkly comic look at the frenzy surrounding multiple births. After 12 siblings are born simultaneously during a greedy corporation’s experimental procedure, their exploitative handlers propel them to instant childhood stardom as the Framingham Dodecatuplets, a pop sensation. But now that they are in their 20s and their cute act has lapsed into a cheap gimmick, how will this modern “family” navigate the world together—or apart? Brought to life by the wildly inventive imagination of Peter Sinn Nachtrieb, author of boom and the Bay Area hit comedy Hunter Gatherers, Litter whirls through a singular world of song and dance, taking the notion of sibling rivalry—and revelry—to astonishing extremes.
