In a world controlled by men, four Victorian women discover unexpected freedom in the underground subculture of women’s boxing - and struggle against the limitations of that freedom. Based on historical research into 19th century women’s boxing, Joy Wilkinson’s electrifying new play examines gender, class, violence, and the balance of power in a corseted world. An American premiere.

An original work by Nick Gutierrez '20. It's Friday, and Alex has a weekend of interviews scheduled at a strip-mall Starbucks as he frantically scrambles to find a summer internship. A hilarious and moving look at the pitfalls of choosing a path forward in life, how we decide what matters, and the impact that we have on one another.

Left quad. Right quad. Lunge. From the safety of their suburban stretch circle, a high school girls’ soccer team navigates the chaos of self-discovery, confronting big questions and waging tiny battles with the ferocity of a pack of adolescent warriors. An incandescent portrait of nine nuanced, individual young American women forging their personal identities and moving into adulthood at warp speed.
