SPOTLIGHT

Tis Pity She's a Whore
By John Ford
Directed by David Skeele

Written in 1630 around the time of Shakespere, Tis Pity She's a Whore is a Jacobean trajedy that tells of a tragic love affair between a couple that tears society apart and drives others mad with jealousy, rage, desperation and lust. The story surrounds a young couple, Giovanni and his sister, Annabella.

Stop Kiss
By Diana Son
Directed by Laura Smiley

Stop Kiss follows the erratic, erotic journey of one young New Yorker, Callie, a stressed-out traffic reporter who lives a cluttered, modern life in her cluttered, modern apartment. Callie's busy but not happy. Her job is just okay, her social life is just okay, and she maintains a so-so on-again/off-again relationship with George, an actor/waiter she has known since their college days a decade before. But into Callie's routine blunders Sara, a cheerful Midwesterner newly arrived in town to teach elementary school in the Bronx. The two women strike up an odd-couple friendship that slowly, awkwardly moves toward romance, an emotional riptide that's as frightening as it is irresistible.

Loot
By Joe Orton
Directed by David Skeele

A masterpiece of black farce, Loot follows the fortunes of two young thieves. Dennis is a hearse driver for an undertaker. He and Hal rob the bank next door to the funeral parlor and return to Hal's home to hide out with the loot. Hal's mother has just died and the money is hidden in her coffin, while the body keeps turning up around the house. With the arrival of Inspector Truscott, the already thickened plot turns topsy-turvy.

Rosenstrasse
by Terry Lawrence
Directed by Laura Smiley

Rosenstrasse tells the true story of German women married to Jewish men during the Third Reich. Official German counsel was divorce, but these women didn’t get divorces, they rallied to their husbands prison in peaceful protest. By the end of the week, the women of Berlin had formed one of the largest peaceful protests in Nazi history — nearly 6,000 wives and daughters forestalling their loved ones’ departure. Their triumph is the subject of this production.
