Short
Synopsis

During the war Joe Keller and Herbert Deever ran a machine shop which made airplane parts. Deever was sent to prison because the firm turned out defective parts, causing the deaths of many men. Keller went free and made a lot of money. The twin shadows of this catastrophe and the fact that the young Keller son was reported missing during the war dominate the action. The love affair of Chris Keller and Ann Deever, the bitterness of George Deever returned from the war to find his father in prison and his father's partner free, are all set in a structure of almost unbearable power. The climax showing the reaction of a son to his guilty father is fitting conclusion to a play electrifying in its intensity.

A tremendously impressive drama that received the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Play.

Synopsis

It's the dead of winter, and the summer vacation getaway of Long Beach Island, New Jersey is desolate and blanketed in snow. Charlie is 35, heartbroken, and just wants some time away from the rest of the world. The island ghost-town seems to be the perfect escape until his solitude is interrupted by a motley parade of misfits who show up and change his plans. A hired beauty, the townie fireman, and an eccentric British real estate agent desperately trying to stay in the country suddenly find themselves tangled together in a beach house where the mood is anything but sunny.

"Zach Braff…scores with All New People, a morbidly funny play about the trendy new existential condition of being young, adorable, and miserable." —Variety. "All New People…is consistently and sometimes sensationally funny. Mr Braff…invests this angst-fueled comedy with a perky sensibility." —NY Times. "…a hipper, edgier take on the bantering comedies that were once the domain of playwrights like Neil Simon." —Hollywood Reporter. "Just…sit back and laugh." —NY Daily News.

Synopsis

Increasingly disenchanted by the myriad disasters in the world around him, Dr. Lionel Morris, an eminent psychiatrist, is on the verge of withdrawing to a life of Buddhist contemplation. However, egged on by his intense daughter and her social worker fiancé, he is drawn into dealing with a very special welfare department case: a young man named Louie who has fathered nine children by five different women, all out of wedlock and all now on public assistance. The doctor's plan is to have Louie move into the family's luxurious apartment while he analyzes him, but, as luck would have it, a young black deliveryman, Lewis, strays by and is mistaken for Louie—a misconception with which he readily goes along. When the real Louie shows up Lewis conceals him in a guest room and gives him reams of the doctor's questionnaires to fill out, while he pursues his own scheme of hustling the good doctor into putting up the money for a tap-dancing school in Harlem. Adding to the general confusion are, among others, the doctor's vapid wife, who is carrying on an affair with a military man friend of the family; a lascivious Swedish maid who can't keep her hands off Lewis; a bogus "French" cook and maid; a near-sighted burglar; and the military man's opera-loving wife—all of whom make their individual, and very funny contributions both to the increasing merriment of the play and to the trenchant, underlying observations which liven and illuminate it.

A long-running Broadway hit, this hilarious modern farce makes outrageous fun of present day society and its assorted ills. "…a world of sane, zany comedy to cheer us up when we need it most." —NY Post. "…the funniest (play) Mr. Schisgal has given us since LUV." —NY Times. "…a gloriously tuned merry-go-round of laughter." —Village Voice.    

All Saints' Day Comedy/Satire; Drama 2 (2m, 0f) View Details Compare
Short
Synopsis

Two lonely derelicts have taken temporary shelter in an abandoned waterfront building on Halloween night. Vaguely uneasy, some sixth sense makes John want to leave, but he is nevertheless impressed and intrigued by Peter's unending fund of information and is prevailed upon to stay until midnight. As the water slaps against the pier outside, they brew tea over a tar-barrel fire, and engage in a fascinating dialogue on various jobs, hitchhiking, chess, ancient customs and meanings. Peter explains that the "Lord of Death" appears at midnight on Halloween, the start of All Saints' Day, to exact retribution for misdeeds. Peter misses his wallet and accuses John of having stolen it. John denies it. In an awesome struggle Peter relentlessly attacks John and leaves him lying on the floor. He then discovers the missing wallet and goes to tell John, only to find him dead. Remorseful and troubled, Peter slides John's body from the window into the water below, and returns to sit and await his judgment from the "Lord of Death."

One of the three plays comprising 'A is for All'. Alternately funny, touching and chilling, with overtones of the mystical, this remarkably gripping two-character play keeps the audience enthralled from opening curtain to electric denouement. 

All That I Will Ever Be Comedy/Satire 6 (5m, 1f) View Details Compare
Short
Synopsis

Creator of HBO's Emmy Award–winning Six Feet Under and the Academy Award–winning screenwriter of American Beauty, Alan Ball's ALL THAT I WILL EVER BE is a darkly funny tale of cultural provocation and our eternal search for belonging as seen through the relationship of two young men in contemporary Los Angeles: Dwight, a privileged native Angeleno, and Omar, an enigmatic immigrant from the Middle East.

"A slick entry concerning the futile search for connection. Alan Ball's dialogue rings with acerbic commentary." —NY Times. "Fascinating…Alan Ball knows how to build a scene and how to make his sentences pop." —The New Yorker. "A rock-solid ensemble that constantly dazzles." —Village Voice. "Thoughtful and provocative." —NY Post. "If you liked Six Feet Under, GO!" —Wall Street Journal.

Short
Synopsis

Confused by Confucius? Wish Swift was swifter? Moby a bit quicker? Then prepare to enjoy another outrageous assault on the senses with over eighty of the greatest literary masterpieces brought humbly down to Earth. This fast-paced comedy flies through a crash course in Western Literature from The Iliad to Harry Potter, plus everything else you really should have read by now but couldn’t be bothered. Taking the form of a crash-course remedial English class, three actors playing a drama teacher, coach and an inept student-teacher all play their part in this tour de force of theatrical pyrotechnics. “Who knew that Homer was so funny – not Simpson, the other one?” –Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “Intertextuality can rarely have felt so frantic, or so funny.” –The Scotsman.
