GRISWOLD by Angela J. Davis (First Full Production)
August 8 – August 18, 2024. Directed by m burke walker

It’s 1961 and birth control is illegal in Connecticut (and several other states). On the eve of the sexual revolution, a bold and iconoclastic 65-year-old woman challenges the law by engineering her own arrest. This sets in motion an extraordinary series of events leading to the first U.S. Supreme Court decision to recognize a right of sexual privacy, paving the way for other guarantees of liberty including the right of same-sex couples to marry. GRISWOLD was the winner of the A is For Playwriting Award and the Playhouse Creatures Emerging Playwrights Celebration Award. This is an important new work for what promises to be a contentious election year in its first full production.    More…  CLICK HERE FOR TICKETS

OUT OF ORDER created and performed by Carl Holder
August 29 – September 8, 2024

Intimate, funny, playful, loving, sad. 50 index cards in a bowl. Some are confessions, characters, stories, others prompt weird group activities in the room. One card at a time is removed and performed in whatever order the universe dictates. It’s a game. It’s a play. It’s an experience with other people. Originally conceived to be performed in living rooms, we’ll be presenting it in the immersive confines of our Speakeasy lobby space. Audience members will be in close proximity to the performer and their inner selves. Who did you think you could be once? Come over and play with your friend Carl. It can’t hurt…?

CHIPANDGUS by John Ahlin and Christopher Patrick Mullen
September 26 – October 6, 2024

The two loneliest men in upstate New York meet once a month in the grungy back room of a rundown Schenectady sports bar, to do the one thing they both love…play ping pong. In this fast-paced, blisteringly brilliant comedy, the most casual of acquaintances discover that their lives intertwine in ways they couldn’t possibly have known. Virtuoso verbal and physical comedy with tons of heart from writer/performers John Ahlin and Christopher Patrick Mullen. Presented in collaboration with Fat Knight Theatre.  More…  CLICK HERE FOR TICKETS

THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO THOMAS JEFFERSON, CHARLES DICKENS AND COUNT LEO TOLSTOY: DISCORD by Scott Carter.
November 14 – November 24, 2024.
Directed and Designed by Carmen Borgia

A Founding Father, a Victorian novelist, and a Russian revolutionary walk into a…stop me if you’ve heard this one. Thomas Jefferson (yeah, that one), Charles Dickens (the very same) and Count Leo Tolstoy (who else?) come together in a blistering battle of wits. From Scott Carter (executive producer of “Real Time with Bill Maher”), this whip-smart comedy examines what happens when three famous thinkers are locked together in Hell. Yearning for a little food for thought with your fun? This one’s for you! More…  CLICK HERE FOR TICKETS
