For our 10th Season we bring you six stories that expose the fight for autonomy. Who controls our well-being? How far will we go to claim our destiny as our own? Through seminal works by Pulitzer Prize winners, Tony winners, Nobel Nominees, and masters of the theatrical canon, we are initiating a deep conversation about what it means to be human, and how these works reflect the trials and tribulations we experience in today's society. 

Please help us bring these plays to life by making a tax-deductible donation. Our goal is to raise $50,000 for the full season - your donation, however big or small, will make a huge difference.

DONATE HERE

We sure hope you'll join us for our landmark 10th Season and help us create a new conversation to connect with your fellow man. Perhaps, as Gandhi said, we together can be the change we wish to see in the world.

WIT by Margaret Edson

POSTPONED

Directed by Brandon Walker

Vivian Bearing, Ph.D., a renowned professor of English who has spent years studying and teaching the brilliant and difficult metaphysical sonnets of John Donne, has been diagnosed with terminal ovarian cancer. Her approach to the study of Donne: aggressively probing, intensely rational.

EXIT THE KING by Eugene Ionesco

TSP Mainstage

POSTPONED

Directed by Erin Cronican

First produced in 1963 starring Alec Guinness and successfully revived to great acclaim on Broadway in 2009, this absurdist exploration of ego and mortality is set in the crumbling throne-room of the palace in an unnamed country where King Berenger the First has only the duration of the play to live. Once, it seemed he ruled over an immense empire and commanded great armies, now his kingdom has shrunk to the confines of his garden wall. Refusing to accept his end, he is attended by his present and former Queens who must help him face the final inevitable truth of life: death.
