Forget what you learned in first grade: '1+1' is one of the most difficult problems on the planet, often taking a lifetime to solve. Just ask the characters in Happily Ever After, the dazzling new play by Cristina Colmena. Three couples of different ages, representing a lifetime of romantic struggles, try to puzzle out what it means to be "together." There are the young lovebirds connected by a powerful attraction yet destined to part; the cynical middle-aged "one night standers" failing to act on a promising encounter; and, finally, an older couple keeping up appearances despite their profound unhappiness. Hanna Bondarewska, artistic director and founder of the Ambassador Theater, directs the world premiere production of this compelling dark comedy. Learn More

Karna and Kunti by Rabindranath Tagore
Death of Tintagiles by Maurice Maeterlinck
Karna and Kunti, an episode of the Mahabharata, the Sanskrit epic that forms the basis of Hindu belief in which Karna, commander of the Kaurav army, comes to wage war against the rival Pandava clan. Kunti is the Pandava matriarch, and, secretly, Karna’s mother. She attempts to bring him back into her care to avert his army from defeating her sons, but finds that the fate of the battle has been determined long before.
The Death of Tintagiles, a forgotten classic of symbolist drama, is about a young boy, Tintagiles, whose family has been almost entirely obliterated by an all-powerful Queen. Under mysterious circumstances, he returns to his sisters Ygraine and Bellangère, who try to protect him from the Queen and her devious servants, to no avail.
