In a city by the river, society divides along the lines of imperfect DNA, trashy bestsellers and downloadable babies. Macy O. Blonsky, author of "the last print published novel ever," must decide how far she will go to bring her creation to the world. Playwright Ann Marie Healy's What Once We Felt is a science-fiction exploration of the schisms in society and technology. It's a story where eugenics, futuristic technology and the hunger to create art collide -- with an explosion surely not far behind. This New England premiere -- after productions in New York and Chicago -- features a talented, all-female cast. Learn More

This stunning retelling of the Iliad by local playwright Jon Lipsky suggests that the years spent by Greek soldiers on the beachheads of Asia Minor have haunting similarities to the years spent by American soldiers on the beachheads of Vietnam, in the mountains of Afghanistan, and in the desert of Iraq. The lives of the women of Saigon or Baghdad may not be so different from the lives of the "barbarian" women kidnapped onto the plains of Troy. Living in Exile is a compelling war story, but more importantly a story of compassion and the human heart.
