Buoyed by “misinformation” and “alternative facts,” the current political regime’s attacks on our democratic institutions have thrust George Orwell’s classic dystopian novel, 1984, onto the bestseller list once again. This fast-paced, mixed-media adaptation investigates Orwell’s 20th-century prophecy in the context of 21st-century America, and asks the question: “Are we there yet?”

Samuel Beckett's masterpiece about marriage, aging and desperation. A New York Times review of Happy Days, at its opening in 1961, read “…the work reflects sorrowing vision of man and his world…Mr. Beckett’s threnody is grim, but in its muted, tremulous way it shimmers with beauty.” This two-person play contains intense adult themes and strong language.
