Who Am I This Time (& Other Conundrums of Love)
The subject of this play—as we are told at the outset—is love, pure and complicated. Set on the stage of The North Crawford Mask & Wig Club("the finest community theatre in central
Connecticut"), three early comic masterpieces by Kurt Vonnegut (Long Walk to Forever, Who
am I This Time? and Go Back to Your Precious Wife and Son) are sewn together into a seamless evening of hilarity and humanity. With Posner’s vision and Vonnegut's singular wit and insight into human foibles, this is a smart, delightful comedy for the whole family.
"…as a night in the theatre, it's easy to love."
"This delightful, lyrical piece of love and simpler times…delivers just the right amount of
fun…more than a few belly laughs of a more home-spun Vonnegut quality. Audiences will find themselves enchanted and often laughing out loud."
This 1987 Pulitzer Prize winning play has been lauded as a masterpiece of modern theater. This sensational drama by August Wilson tells the story of Troy Maxson, a former star of the Negro baseball leagues who now works as a garbage man in 1957 Pittsburgh. Excluded as a black man from the major leagues during his prime, Troy's bitterness takes its toll on his relationships with his wife and his son, who now wants his own chance to play ball.
"One of the great characters in American drama. One of the richest experiences I have ever had in the theatre. I wasn't just moved. I was transfixed."
- New York Post
"A blockbuster and a major American play."

Love, Loss and What I Wore
A play of monologues and ensemble pieces about women, clothes and memory covering all the important subjects—mothers, prom dresses, mothers, buying bras, mothers, hating purses and why we only wear black. This at times funny, at times poignant, collage of stories is told from the points of view of multiple women, spanning multiple generations.
"Funny, compelling…Brought down the house…but [the play] is not a comedy: A story about black cowboy boots becomes a sad tale of being underappreciated in a relationship; a tale of two women shopping for their wedding outfits ends bittersweetly; and the recollection of a new bra is a quiet testament to a women's search for dignity while undergoing treatment for breast cancer."
"So funny and so powerful; so dear and sweet; so remindful of our female wiles, our worries, our insecurities, our remembrances of mother, father, sisters, brothers, lovers—I think it can't miss."

Agnes of God
Summoned to a convent, Dr. Martha Livingstone, a court-appointed psychiatrist, is charged with assessing the sanity of a novice accused of murdering her newborn. Miriam Ruth, the Mother Superior, determinedly keeps young Agnes from the doctor, further arousing
Livingstone’s suspicions. Who killed the infant, and who fathered the tiny victim? Livingstone’s
questions force all three women to re-examine the meaning of faith and the power of love,
leading to a dramatic, compelling climax.
"Riveting, powerful, electrifying drama [...] the dialogue crackles."

"Outstanding play [that] [...] deals intelligently with questions of religion and psychology."
- The New York Times
"Unquestionably blindingly theatrical [...] cleverly executed blood and guts evening in the

Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery
Comedic genius Ken Ludwig transforms Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic The Hound of the
Baskervilles into a murderously funny adventure. Sherlock Holmes is on the case. The male heirs of the Baskerville line are being dispatched one by one. To find their ingenious killer, Holmes and Watson must brave the desolate moors before a family curse dooms its newest heir. Watch as our intrepid investigators try to escape a dizzying web of clues, silly accents, disguises, and deceit as five actors deftly portray more than forty characters. Does a wild hellhound prowl the moors of Devonshire? Can our heroes discover the truth in time? Join the fun and see how far from elementary the truth can be.
"Baskerville is a madcap sendup of what you might hold dear about that Doyle classic, done up in the style of The 39 Steps."
- DC Theatre Scene
"The joy in watching [the] witty new play Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery is not in
solving the crime but in the plethora of wildly imaginative characters you meet along the way.
By dispensing with British formality, Ken Ludwig has given us a play that is ingeniously funny
and will keep you guessing until the curtain call."

Jacob Marley's Christmas Carol
"Marley was dead, to begin with…" —and what happens to Ebeneezer Scrooge's mean, sour, pruney old business partner after that? Chained and shackled, Marley is condemned to a hellish eternity. He's even given his own private tormentor: a malicious little hell-sprite who thoroughly enjoys his work. Desperate, Marley accepts his one chance to free himself: To escape his own chains, he must first redeem Scrooge. So begins a journey of laughter and
terror, redemption and renewal, during which Scrooge's heart, indeed, is opened; but not before Marley—in this irreverent, funny and deeply moving story—discovers his own.
"…Nothing less than an anthem to human nature, to imagination, and to the wonder of a
compelling story told by a wondrous storyteller…among the best evenings of the theatrical year…As the tale slips down the throat like a hot chocolate, it also reveals new truths about the human condition…in Mula's warm and inviting hands, Marley becomes a tortured but poignant and ultimately redeemed soul who personally stage-manages Scrooge's reformation and finds his own redemption therein…an inspired and moving story that makes all that old stuff about ghosts and graves seem both immediate and revelatory…a splendid and invigorating evening!"
