November 25 – December 24, 2017

Boston Globe Critic’s Pick

Everyone knows Dr. Ruth Westheimer as America’s most famous sex therapist. Few, however, know the incredible journey that preceded it. From fleeing the Nazis in the Kindertransport and joining the Haganah in Jerusalem as a scout and sniper, to her struggles to succeed as a single mother coming to America, Becoming Dr. Ruth is filled with the humor, honesty and life-affirming spirit of Karola Ruth Siegel, the girl who became “Dr. Ruth”.
“Endearing! Inspiring and highly enjoyable! An illuminating portrait!” – New York Times

February 3 – March 4, 2018

New York Times Critic’s Pick

A powerful tale of a Jewish-American family and a culture at odds with itself. Three siblings reunite to celebrate their father’s 75th birthday. As destructive secrets and long-held resentments bubble to the surface, they negotiate — with biting humor and razor-sharp insight — how much of the past they’re willing to sacrifice for a chance at a new beginning.
“Passionate and provoking! Brainy in its arguments and visceral in its emotions!” – New York Times



by Branden Jacobs-Jenkins

April 7 – May 6, 2018

New York Times Critic’s Pick & Finalist for 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Drama

A funny, trenchant and powerful new play that follows an ambitious group of editorial assistants at a Manhattan magazine, each of whom hopes for a life of letters and a book deal before they turn thirty. When an ordinary workday becomes anything but, the stakes for who will get to tell their own story become higher than ever.
“A straightforward, sharp-toothed comic drama! It is to the New York publishing business what David Mamet’s SPEED-THE-PLOW is to the Hollywood film industry!” – New York Times



by Halley Feiffer

June 9 – July 8, 2018

TimeOut New York Critic’s Pick

A precocious and fiercely competitive actress, her father – a famous playwright – and a wickedly intense evening combine as they deliberate whether to read the reviews of her off-Broadway debut…and things unravel from there. This critically acclaimed play – in turns dark, funny probing – pulls the audience into the middle of a deeply complicated relationship and sheds light on the struggles of different generations striving to find common ground.
“Bone-chilling… punishing drama!” – New York Times



by Bruce Graham

August 11 – September 9, 2018

New York Times Critic’s Pick

A fearless new play that unravels a complex web of moral ambiguity, revenge, and racial bias. A wealthy white businessman and a struggling black single mom ride the same bus week after week. As they get to know each other, their relationship sparks a candid and surprising look at racial and economic divides.
“A riveting, thought-provoking piece of theater!” – New York Times



by Joshua Harmon

October 13 – November 11, 2018

The head of the admissions department at a New England prep school is fighting to diversify the student body. With her husband, the school’s Headmaster, they’ve brought a stodgy institution into the 21st century. When their only son sets his sights on an Ivy League university, personal ambition collides with progressive values! A play that explodes the ideals and contradictions of liberal white America. By the author of BAD JEWS.
“ASTONISHING AND DARING! An extraordinarily useful and excruciating satire – of the left, by the left, for the left – for today!” – New York Times
