    Winter’s Passage is a companion piece to Shakespeare’s Winter’s Tale. Winter’s Passage imagines a history before Shakespeare’s story began in which Hermione, Paulina, and Emilia studied science and magic together. The play shows the characters’ changing relationships, philosophies, heartbreaks, and reconciliations. Winter’s Passage explores a version of what might be happening before and between Shakespeare’s scenes. Why does Leontes behave the way he does? Did Hermione die? What’s going on in the 16 years that Time skips? What is the nature of love, friendship, forgiveness, knowledge, and hope? What happens after death, in the undiscovered country- and what if some travelers could return?
  • Jane Austen's Persuasion
    Persuasion is based on Jane Austen's novel, adapted for the stage by Jennifer Le Blanc. Anne Elliot was persuaded to end her engagement to Captain Wentworth for reasons of wealth and snobbery. After many years he has returned. Anne loves him as much as ever, but has he forgiven her, is it too late for a second chance? Austen's wit, wisdom, satire, humor, and passion come to life in this funny and romantic adaptation.
  • Moll Flanders
    Moll Flanders, adapted from the bawdy novel by Daniel Defoe, is a rollicking comedy about a seventeenth century woman in England and the twists and turns her eventful life takes. A ribald tale of crime, repentance, love, and trying to pay the rent. Full of music, marriages, mishaps, adventures, misadventures, and humor.
