"Red Speedo"

by Lucas Hnath, 

directed by Jeffrey Albright.

A Collaboration with

The Toledo Repertoire Theatre.

Ray’s swum his way to the eve of the Olympic trials. If he makes the team, he’ll get a deal with Speedo. If he gets a deal with Speedo, he’ll never need a real job. So when someone’s stash of performance-enhancing drugs is found in the locker room fridge, threatening the entire team’s Olympic fate, Ray has to crush the rumors or risk losing everything. A sharp and stylish play about swimming, survival of the fittest, and the American dream of a level playing field—or of leveling the field yourself.

“A Steady Rain”

by Keith Huff, 

directed by Jeffrey Albright.

A Collaboration with

Hawk and Handsaw Theatre.

 

  A dark duologue filled with sharp storytelling and biting repartee, A Steady Rain explores the complexities of a lifelong bond tainted by domestic affairs, violence, and the rough streets of Chicago. Joey and Denny have been best friends since kindergarten, and after working together for several years as policemen in Chicago, they are practically family: Joey helps out with Denny's wife and kids; Denny keeps Joey away from the bottle. But when a domestic disturbance call takes a turn for the worse, their friendship is put on the line. The result is a harrowing journey into a moral gray area where trust and loyalty struggle for survival against a sobering backdrop of pimps, prostitutes, and criminal lowlifes.

Summer Collaborations.

“Rocket Man"

by Steven Dietz, 

directed by Dave Nelms.

Donny Rowan has placed everything he owns on his front lawn, along with a sign that reads: "Here's my life. Make an offer." He has cut a skylight into his attic and placed his E-Z Boy recliner underneath -- where he can sit, staring at the stars. Somewhere in the universe, Donny believes, is a place where all roads we never choose converge. Rocket Man explores one man's obsessive desire to find this "parallel world" -- and the profound effect of his decision on his family and friends.

June 12 & 20, 2020 at 8:00 p.m.

June 14, 2020 at 3:00 p.m.

“F2M"

by Patricia Wettig, 

directed by Barbara Barkan.

It is parents' weekend of Parker's freshman year, but Parker's very famous parents aren't coming—which, trust him, is just as well. Confrontations both painfully funny and deeply poignant are sparked when Althea and Clarence show up uninvited, as Parker's new sexual identity is put to the test, and as the family must grapple with the difficult choices of the child they love.
