Samsara

May 11th - June 2nd, 2019

Katie and Craig are having a baby...via a surrogate...who lives in India. A month before the baby’s due date, Craig reluctantly travels to the subcontinent, where he meets Suraiya, said less-than-thrilled surrogate. As all three parents anxiously wait for the baby to be born, flights of fancy attack them from all sides, in this Los Angeles premiere from playwright Lauren Yee (Cambodian Rock Band, King of the Yees, Ching Chong Chinaman) and director Rebecca Wear (Oregon Shakespeare Festival). Whimsical, acerbic and poignant, Samsara is "genuinely moving…there’s a throbbing play here with a laudable awareness of how we sometimes only get one shot at happiness or escape." - Chicago Tribune

Sucker Punch

Directed by Michael A. Shepperd
June 4th - June 23rd, 209

In the red corner: Leon Davidson - Black British champ or Uncle Tom? In the blue corner: Troy Augustus - American powerhouse or naive cash cow? Having spent their youth in the same London boxing gym vying for the favoritism of inspirational, foul-mouthed trainer, the two former friends step into the ring and face up to who they are in the West Coast premiere of Roy Williams' Sucker Punch. By turns tender, shocking and funny, Sucker Punch asks if the right battles have been fought, let alone won.
