Sam, Harry and Rainman are living on the streets of a major city. It's Christmas and Rainman, a nineteen year old but with the mental age of seven, has been given a frozen turkey for Christmas by a group of good Samaritans. As they ponder what to do with the turkey they are helped by Lilly, the proverbial, eccentric, bag lady who believes the turkey is a baby and a street nurse who has her own private reasons for working with the homeless.

Picasso At The Lapin Agile

Written By: Steve Martin (yes, THAT Steve Martin)
Directed By: Gerry Butts
Produced By: Greg Insley

This long running Off-Broadway absurdist comedy places Albert Einstein and Pablo Picasso in a Parisian cafe in 1904, just before the renowned scientist transformed physics with his theory of relativity and the celebrated painter set the art world afire with cubism. In his first comedy for the stage, the popular actor and screenwriter plays fast and loose with fact, fame and fortune as these two geniuses muse on the century's achievements and prospects as well as other fanciful topics with infectious dizziness.

The Glass Menagerie

Written By: Tennessee Williams
Directed By: Tony deCiantis
Produced By: Grace Peters

Arguably, the greatest tragedy of the 20th Century, Tennessee Williams’ delicate masterpiece ‘memory play’; set in the dissolving economy of The Great Depression, tells the story of how one man’s ‘crossroads’ decision of years ago continues to haunt him. Through Williams’ clear–sighted exploration into the play’s timeless themes and familiar archetypes; taken from the memories of its morosely endearing narrator, this heartrending quasi-autobiography remains no less relevant today than ever.

The Laramie Project

Written By: Moisés Kaufman and the
Members of Tectonic Theater Project
Directed By: Joe Brenner
Produced By: Ron & Julia Loncke

In October 1998 a twenty-one-year-old student at the University of Wyoming was kidnapped, severely beaten and left to die, tied to a fence in the middle of the prairie outside Laramie, Wyoming. His bloody, bruised and battered body was not discovered until the next day, and he died several days later in an area hospital. His name was Matthew Shepard, and he was the victim of this assault because he was gay. THE LARAMIE PROJECT is a breathtaking theatrical collage that explores the depths to which humanity can sink and the heights of compassion of which we are capable.
