BALM IN GILEAD - by Lanford Wilson (November 13-24]
directed by Kim Rubinstein
Takes place over a three -day period at the end of October (Halloween time) in an all-nite diner in New Yorks upper west side where lost souls lurk. The diner is a haven and hang-out for social outcastshustlers, hookers, junkies, bums, dealers, thievesall Dreamers running on empty but running just the same. Wilson calls them losers who refuse to lose. The play is awash in rock-and -drug culture of the 60s.

Man in Love - by Christina Anderson (November 18 - 23)
directed by Stephen Buescher
Midwestern Metropolis during the Great Depression is severely segregated. If you're from 'The Spread' you are trying to survive another eviction notice, soup line, or night on the street. If you're from the segregated Black area called 'The Zoo' you are literally fighting for your life.

MFA Dance Thesis I - The Underground, a dance performance directed by Marcos Duran
The Underground. Inspired by a surrealistic novel in collage by Max Ernst, Une Semaine De Bonté ou Les Sept Éléments Capitaux (A Week of Kindness or The Seven Deadly Elements), the bizarre, interwoven narratives of Haruki Murakami's novels, Hard-Boiled Wonderland and The End of the World and Kafka on the Shore, and Jean Renoir's 1939 cinematic French social satire La Règle du Jeu (The Rules of the Game), this performance will seek to create worlds within worlds of physical and emotional expression.

MFA Dance Thesis II- An Object Screaming, a dance performance directed by Paulina Colmenares
An Object, Screaming is a dance performance that originates in a prolonged meditation on the epistemic and spiritual nature of the creative act. Through the exploration of opposites it seeks to reach emptiness through excess, highlighting simplicity and pristine affect.
Theodore & Adele Shank Theatre

Much Ado About Nothing - by WIlliam Shakespeare
directed by Will Jones
Much Ado is a play about the lies we tell each other. The little white lies we tell to help a friend, the lies we tell to get what we want, or the lies we tell ourselves to make life a little brighter. In the same way, one of the greatest gifts that theatre has to offer an audience is the ability to imagine the world differently through storytelling. And what is a story but a lie we agree to believe temporarily? This production interweaves the stories the characters tell in the play with the stories the actors tell on stage in order to embrace the idea that, the fact that its fiction doesnt make it any less true.

Orestes 2.0 - by Chuck Mee
directed by Joseph Hendel
The third part of his Imperial Dreams Trilogy, Charles Mee describes Orestes 2.0 as "The Euripides after-war play, re-set in the world today, in which the veterans return from the Trojan War, to find that the disorder and nightmare of war has come home with them and rendered their homeland to ruins forever."

45 plays for 45 Presidents - by Karen Weinberg, Chloe Johnston, Genevra Gallo-Bayiates, Sean Benjamin, and Andy Bayiates
directed by Sean Graney

2020 is a presidential election year. What better way to celebrate our right to vote by looking at all the men we chose to occupy the highest office of our land. Created by the Neo-Futurists in Chicago, this huge-cast, fast-paced, hysterical, informational cabaret races to show a few minute summary of each U.S. President in those glorious 231 years.
Arthur Wagner Theatre in Galbraith Hall.
