Experience 80 years in a family's life in about 90 minutes in The Big Meal, an award-winning play by Dan LeFranc (Sixty Miles to Silver Lake). Watch five generations of Nicole and Sam's Midwestern family return to the same table, sharing snapshots of their love, loss, and life in this comic drama. The story flows quickly from the initial meeting of the young couple through their firsts -- date, fight and kiss. Once they're married with children, they're faced with a son and a daughter who'd rather be anywhere than at The Big Meal, along with the worsening dementia of Sam's father. And as the years pass, life's ebbs and flows are experienced together, revealing more surprises, both happy and heartbreaking. Learn More

Physicist Émilie du Châtelet, lover of famous French philosopher Voltaire, and a young poet, worries about her fate after she unexpectedly becomes pregnant. Driven by fear and ambition, she races to publish her theories based on Sir Isaac Newton’s Laws of Motion. Linked together by scientific legacy and maternal instincts, accomplished astrophysicist Olivia and her husband, Peter, want to conceive but cannot. Olivia’s attention turns to her new “child,” a planet she’s discovered in the midst of hiring a quirky and free-spirited surrogate. This touching and whimsical tale leaves us asking: Does the birth of a child ultimately mean as much to the world as the birth of an idea?
