The God of Hell by Sam Shepard


An uproarious, brilliantly provocative farce that brings the gifts of a quintessentially American playwright to bear on the current American dilemma. Frank and Emma are a quiet, respectable couple who raise cows on their Wisconsin Farm. Soon after they agree to put up Frank’s old friend Haynes, who is on the lam from a secret government project involving plutonium, they’re visited by Welch, an unctuous government bureaucrat. His aggressive patriotism puts Frank, Emma, and Haynes on the defensive, transforming a heartland American Household into a scene of torture and promoting a radioactive brand of conformity with a dangerously low half life.

We are hoping this show will be the first back in the theatre!


Directed by Athena Gundlach


The God of Hell will run Saturdays, July 17th, 24th, and 31st at 7:30pm; and Sundays July 18th, 25th, and August 1st at 2pm.

October 9, 16, 23 at 7:30 pm & October 10, 17, 24 at 2:00 pm - "The Beard of Avon" - A Virtual Online Event

The Beard of Avon by Amy Freed

A bumpkin known as "Will Shakspere," who longs to be an artist, flees from his filthy barn, his homebound wife and her incessant chores. In Elizabethan London, did this stage-struck dreamer become a front man for Sir Francis Bacon, the Earl of Oxford and even Queen Elizabeth, authors too proud to admit they scribbled plays for the unwashed masses? This delicious and witty farce fashions the longstanding debate over who really penned the Bard's cannon into a merry look at the mortality of artists and the immortality of their legacy. With a gleeful wink at intervening centuries, the author portrays Will's comic struggles to become an artist in his own right while she reflects on artistic inspiration, the struggle to become an artistic master and the very meaning of creativity.


This is one of our postponed shows from 2020. 


Directed by Beulah Vega.


Show dates:  Saturdays October 9th, 16th, 23rd at 7:30pm; and Sundays, October 10th, 17th, and 24th at 2pm.
