On top of terrorists, IEDs, hostile populations and hellish conditions, female soldiers in the U.S. military face another enemy -- sexism -- that must be battled at the front and at home, on-duty and off. Worse, it is an enemy that is often fought alone, without help or even acknowledgement of colleagues and superiors. Lonely Soldiers: Women at War in Iraq is a play that explores the struggles, both visible and invisible, facing today's female soldiers. Adapted from Helen Benedict's book The Lonely Soldier: The Private War of Women Serving in Iraq, the play features monologues and scenes taken directly from Benedict's interviews with real soldiers. Directed by Austene Van, Lonely Soldiers stars seven actresses playing specific soldiers who served during the early years of the Iraq War. Learn More

The trials and tribulations of a 13-year-old girl never seem to change: sibling rivalry, boys, school dances, boys, homework, and... boys!
Young Clotilde “Coco” Irvine, is the daughter of a lumber baron living in a fashionable Summit Avenue mansion in 1927. For her birthday she is given a diary in which she faithfully chronicles the ups and downs of the rollercoaster that is her thirteenth year of life. Coco’s Diary leads audiences on a winsome romp alongside our smart, adventurous, mischievous heroine surrounded by the beguiling music of the 1920s. It is charming, funny and delightful entertainment for the entire family.
