A young Jewish girl who's cast -- much to her immigrant parents' dismay -- as Jesus in her school's Christmas pageant is at the center of Pulitzer Prize winner Donald Margulies' Coney Island Christmas. A seasonal story for people of all ages and faiths, Coney Island Christmas weaves together nostalgia, music and merriment as the girl, many decades later, recounts this memorable bit of autobiography to her great-granddaughter. Kit Wilder directs this timeless and universal tale of what it means to be an American during the holidays. Learn More

Directed by Kit Wilder
“The extremity is the point."
Peter Shaffer's epic play, Equus, follows child psychiatrist Dr. Martin Dysart in his investigation of the curious case of a young boy who has violently blinded six horses. To Dysart, it is a psychological puzzle, one that brings to light his patient's sexual/religious fascination with “Equus” and ultimately leads to a perplexing and dramatic confrontation.
Shaffer is an important modern playwright who was born in England in 1926. He has received numerous awards for his work. Some of his other prominent plays include Amadeus, and Five Finger Exercise. Amadeus and Equus were adapted to screenplays in 1977 and 1984 respectively. Amadeus won the 1984 Best Screenplay Golden Globe and the 1984 Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar. Peter Shaffer was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in 2001.
