PTERODACTYLS

A dark comedy by Nicky Silver.

 "There are times—not all that many, admittedly—when a critic wished he had never used the word 'brilliant' before, so he could offer it fresh minded and glittering to something new. And different..." —NY Post

"Clever is the word for PTERODACTYLS... clever, sharp, witty—it's a play that takes aim at the main-streamed, moneyed, conventional American family and buries it under one satiric jibe after another." —Theatre Week

A new work by Jean Battlo. Edited by Jim Walker and Lydia Mong. This one-woman show explores the inner Emily Dickinson. Alone in her room near the end of her life, Emily ponders love, marriage, her father, her brother's extramarital relationship, and immortality. Those who are fans of Dickinson's poetry will love this portrayal. Those who are unfamiliar with her work will be pleasantly surprised. The role of Emily will be played by Lydia Mong.

VINCENT


Leonard Nimoy wrote this one man show, based on the play "Van Gogh" by Phillip Stephens, portraying the excitement and color of Vincent Van Gogh's life and art. This exceptional piece uses multi-image dramatic staging to create a thrilling and utterly fulfilling theatrical experience. Vincent will be played by Dana Cogar.


THE HOUSE ON SECOND STREET

"Lizzie Borden took an axe and gave her mother forty whacks. When she saw what she had done, She gave her father forty-one."

A riveting new play, not yet published, by Jean Battlo. On the morning of August 3, 1892, Abby and Andrew Borden were axed to death in their home in Fall River, Massachusetts. More than a century later, this unsolved mystery still haunts criminal history. Decide for yourself -- did she, or didn't she?

A LIE OF THE MIND


Sam Shepard won the New York Drama Critics Circle Award, the Outer Critics Circle Award, and the Drama Desk Award with this landmark play. Filled with enormous vitality, and humor, the play explores the destinies of two families, linked by marriage but set apart by jealousies and distrust, to probe into the human heart and the destructiveness which it can engender.

"Sam Shepard is surely the only dramatist alive who could tell a story as sad and frightening as this one and make such a funny play of it without ever skimping on its emotional depth." —New Yorker
