Eclipsed

November 2-4, 2018

Ticket Prices: $39

 

“Eclipsed” offers a chilling, humanizing and surprisingly funny portrait of transformation and renewal. With wit, compassion and defiance, this gripping play unearths the wreckage of war and celebrates the women who navigate and survive the most hostile of circumstances. Most important, “Eclipsed” is a major achievement – a scorching work about women and war whose humor burnishes rather than undermines its seriousness of purpose. The production features ferociously committed ensemble performances, staged with power and finesse.

January 11-13, 2019

Winner of the 1982 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and set in 1943 on a segregated army base in Louisiana, “A Soldier’s Play” is essentially a gripping mystery story. Waters, a black sergeant, has been murdered and, to the surprise of everyone on the base, a black captain is sent to investigate. He is greeted with a range of reactions – mistrust by his counterpart, a white captain, disdain by other white officers, and enthusiasm by the black soldiers, who are hoping that the local KKK will be blamed for the crime. Join us as we approach Martin Luther King Day by experiencing the incomparable actor extraordinaire Antonio “Huggy Bear” Fargas in unveiling this gem.
