Do you believe in fate? How can you tell if you really know someone? What would you do if you could start over? These are the questions Cass asks herself when she discovers the shocking truth about the man she married. Cass makes the bold decision to leave her old life behind and embark on a journey of self-discovery, checking off items on her bucket list and befriending a zany cast of characters along the way before finding herself teetering on the edge of the world's most famous waterfall. Hilarious, absurd, wacky, and whimsical, this comedy reminds us it's possible to find hope and humor in any situation.

According to ancient myth, Orpheus was the greatest musician ever born. When his wife died unexpectedly, he refused to give up on her. He used his musical gift to gain entry to the Underworld to retrieve Eurydice. Sarah Ruhl’s play is a contemporary retelling of that well-known myth, but this time from his wife’s perspective. With imagination, poetry, and humor, Eurydice is about love and what to do with it.

Roadkill Confidential

Sheila Callaghan's Roadkill Confidential is a wild ride on at least two different paths. It is a comic parody of the noir thriller that is also a deeply serious query into the limits of art.  As much an installation as a play, energetic and full of surprises, it is just as provocative as it is funny.
