BEGINNING OCTOBER 27 

Feeding Beatrice

In order to afford the large suburban home they’ve dreamt
about, June and Lurie agree to live on a diet of bread and margarine for
the foreseeable future. Even the arrival of a mysterious houseguest
won’t dampen their excitement at being homeowners – that is until the
strange intruder’s innocent requests turn into
vicious demands. As the couple becomes increasingly haunted by
her presence, they are confronted with the unforeseen realities of
life in an all-White neighborhood and the true cost of the American
Dream.

The Resurrection of Michelle Morgan

In 2017, playwright Christina Anderson imagined herself
in a not-too-distant American future, working 10 gigs just to
(barely) get by. When a harrowing experience leaves her disillusioned with an
art form she once loved, she turns to her partner Alex and the
larger community for refuge. But a surprise commission for a new play
reminds her of what she’s lost, and what she must do to heal
age-old wounds and reclaim her voice.
