*_Period of Adjustment_

*by Tennessee Williams

Christmas Eve in High Point, 1958. George takes his new bride to meet friend and fellow soldier, Ralph Bates, for the holiday celebrations. As snow settles outside, the idyllic Christmas scene begins to dissolve. While past hopes and dreams are recounted, the bittersweet reality of their marital relationships surface with comical and poignant results. Admission to this play includes a complimentary holiday drink.

When a newly married couple fixes up two romantically challenged friends, crisis and comedy ensue in this hilarious new play. From their first blind date, which includes an unscheduled visit to the police station, these thirtysomethings, along with the newlyweds who set them up, surprise us and themselves. Mixing sharp wit and humor with the taut suspense of a psychological thriller, this play asks what we owe the people we love the most and the strangers who land on our doorstep.

The Aliens *(West Coast Premiere)**

**By: Annie Baker

March 20, 2012 – May 5, 2012

In the town of Shirley, two thirtysomething dropouts hang out by the dumpster behind the coffee shop where they meditate on music, philosophy, shrooms, and Bukowski. When a teenage employee asks them to relocate, these disillusioned young men find the disciple they’ve been waiting for. A beat-tinged, psychotropic journey, Annie Baker’s _The Aliens _is a funny and heartening look at friendship, ritual, and small town New England.
