A young actress is determined to land the lead in a new play based on a classic erotic novel about a 19th-century dominatrix.

4000 Miles   by Amy Herzog

March 16 - April 14, 2013
2012 Obie Award for Best New American Play

A beautifully rendered portrait of the relationship between an old-style lefty grandmother and her new-style lefty grandson. After suffering a major loss while he was on a cross-country bike trip, 21 year-old Leo seeks solace from his feisty 91 year-old grandmother in her West Village apartment. Over the course of a single month, these unlikely roommates infuriate, bewilder, and ultimately reach each other.

"A funny, moving, altogether wonderful drama. . . A heartening reminder that a keen focus on life's small moments can pay off in a big way onstage."
- New York Times

COCK   by Mike Bartlett

May 18 - June 16, 2013
Winner of 2010 Olivier Award

A provocatively titled play about an unlikely love triangle that was a huge hit in London and New York. When a gay man takes a break from his boyfriend the last thing he expects is to suddenly meet the woman of his dreams. Filled with guilt and indecision, he decides there's only one way to straighten this out. A playful, candid look at one man's sexuality and the difficulties that arise when you realize you have a choice.

"Terrific! Primal and hypnotic! Invigorating, mesmerizing and very funny! I can't remember the last time that sex onstage felt so authentic."
- Ben Brantley, New York Times

Good People   by David Lindsay-Abaire

July 20 - August 18, 2013
Best Play 2011 - New York Drama Critics' Circle Award and Tony Best Play nominee

The Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright pays his respects to his old South Boston neighborhood, with this tough and tender play about the insurmountable class divide between those who make it out of this blue-collar Irish neighborhood and those who find themselves left behind. Is it strength of character or just a few lucky breaks that determines a person's fate?

"If Good People isn't a hit, there is no justice in the land!"
- Variety

Sons of the Prophet   by Stephen Karam

September 21 - October 20, 2013
Winner of the 2012 Drama Critics' Circle, Outer Critics Circle, Lucille Lortel Award for Best Play, and a 2012 Pulitzer Prize Finalist

One of the best-reviewed plays of the 2011 New York season. A refreshingly honest take on how we cope with wounds that just won't heal, and the funniest play about human suffering you're likely to see. A marvelous meditation on the responsibilities we bear for the people we love, for those we don't and for society as a whole.

"Explosively funny! Written with insight and compassion, not to mention biting wit!"
- New York Times
