In 1691 Puritan New England, fear and superstition were rampant. Singing, dancing and amusement of any kind was forbidden. The devil was everywhere. Five girls coming of age in
Salem Village, desperate for release of their thoughts and feelings, find an ally in Tituba, a slave who longs for freedom. Deep in the woods the girls make a pact and build a sisterhood. Then alliances are formed, promises made and broken, power taken.

Afflicted: Daughters of Salem tells the story of the Salem girls—Abigail Williams, the leader, Ann Putnam, Mercy Lewis, Mary Warren and Betty Parris, and the events that led up to the infamous Salem witch trials. This origin story examines how these teenage girls became accusers and caused 20 people to be put to death for witching.

I Have an Idea for a Play
Written by Jordan Resnick
Directed by Katie Arnold

In this Brechtian play about the ticking clock that is life, characters experience existential dread as they become aware of their own status as fictional. Distanced from the imaginary world of the play, the characters navigate themes of female empowerment, sexuality and student loans.

Doubled Bodies
Choreographed by Kristina Harris and Gabriel Mata

Doubled Bodies exposes narratives that are muted by heteronormative gender constructs. Harris and Mata upend expectations about female/male partnering, power dynamics and gendered aesthetics, drawing on in-depth research and their own individual and cultural identities.

It’s December of 1939. Gone With the Wind is having its world premiere, and Hitler is invading Poland, but Atlanta’s elitist German Jews are much more concerned with who is going to Ballyhoo, the social event of the season. Especially concerned is the Frietag family. The family gets pulled apart and then mended together with plenty of comedy, romance, and revelations along the way. Events take several unexpected turns as the characters face where they come from and are forced to deal with who they really are.

General Admission – $22.00, Seniors (62+) & Students – $17.00.
Group Rates(10 or more people): General Admission, Seniors (62+), Students – $15.00.

Under what circumstances can a society skew their morality for comfort and personal gain? Set in the fictitious town of Güllen, experience the story of a woman’s revenge on a community that cast her out when she was pregnant and impoverished. This allegorical dark comedy features a village of citizens—set into motion as a mob of dancing birds, whose sweeping murmurations turn ferocious. The play arcs from absurdist to barbarous in order to question what happens when civil ethics, personal morality, patriarchal rule, justice and democracy go amok.

“A small masterpiece of misanthropy…a grotesque fable whose icy laughter and bizarre fantastical sideshows…reflect its Swiss author’s proximity to both the Holocaust and the accompanying absurdist revolution in theater…. A nightmare about democracy, Dürrenmatt’s play will always be pertinent.” — The New York Times
