Presented by the Girls of St. Catherine's
The St. Catherine's drama club is struggling to put up its first school play—Sophocles' Antigone. As if staging this tragedy in an all girls’ Catholic school isn’t challenging enough, the cast’s beloved director ends up betraying them in an unforgivable way. And it’s almost opening night! The actors must figure out the right course of action, all while rehearsing the classic play about impossibly difficult choices. – New Play Network
This comic drama is a modernized, gender-reversed, relocated, hyper-theatrical riff on the novel Ulysses, occurring exactly 100 years to the day after Joyce's jaunt through Dublin. – Concord Theatricals
Let Me Be: Grandma, Mamma, and Me
The show is about grief, matriarchal relationships, death and folklore. Using two popular folklore tales from the central region of Uganda, the story follows four women as they navigate their understanding of what it means to lose a loved one, what it means to be a woman in a third-world country, what it means to leave and return, and what it means to be a daughter.
