A People's Cuban Christmas Tale

December 1 -19, 2021

Written by Herbert Siguenza

Directed by James Darvas

San Diego-based award-winning playwright, Herbert Siguenza completely reimagines Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol into an epic Cuban historical drama. 

Ezequiel Scrooge is an American sugar baron caught up in the political upheavals of a country on the verge of revolution, its present and future.  This retelling celebrates the Cuban people's desire for socialism and autonomy in the shadow of American economic interests.  Lively classic Cuban music scores the tropical Christmas tale of a greedy man who finds personal redemption and a new social consciousness.

Written by Sharr White

Just as Juliana Smithton’s research leads to a potential breakthrough, her life takes a disorienting turn. During a lecture to colleagues at an exclusive beach resort, she glimpses an enigmatic young woman in a yellow bikini amidst the crowd of business suits. One step at a time, a mystery unravels as contradictory evidence, blurred truth and fragmented memories collide in a cottage on the windswept shores of Cape Cod.

Turning off the Morning News

Written by Christopher Durang

Directed by Adam Parker

Cliff and Salena are happily living a nice, normal life in the suburbs. But their neighbors, Jimmy and Polly, threaten to disrupt their domestic bliss. They’re sometimes a little strange—and sometimes completely unhinged. Equally unnerving and delightful, TURNING OFF THE MORNING NEWS takes hilarious aim at the absurdity of our modern world.

Blue Period

July 15- August 7, 2022

Written by Charles Borkhuis

Directed by James P. Darvas

Pablo Picasso lived quite the life. During his childhood, his father taught him the techniques of the art of painting. His father supplied him all the tools and practical knowledge to succeed. It wasn’t very long before young Pablo surpassed his father in talent and success. At the turn of the century, in a land full of sights, sounds, and people who Pablo had never experienced before, Pablo’s personal and artistic lives would undergo a drastic metamorphosis. Pablo and his best friend Casagemas traveled to Paris and their eyes and hearts were opened to things they had never imagined. The few months they spent together in Paris put their lives on a trajectory that neither of them saw coming. For Pablo, success on an unimaginable level. Unfortunately, the same could not be said for Casagemas.  A WORLD PREMIERE!

The Drowning Girls

September 3 - 26, 2021

Written by Beth Graham, Charlie Tomlison, & Daniela Vlaskalic

Directed by James P. Darvas

Bessie, Alice, and Margaret have two things in common: they are married to George Joseph Smith, and they are dead. Surfacing from the bathtubs they were drowned in, the three breathless brides gather evidence against their womanizing, murderous husband by reliving the shocking events leading up to their deaths. Reflecting on the misconceptions of love, married life, and the not-so-happily ever after, The Drowning Girls is both a breathtaking fantasia and a social critique, full of rich images, a myriad of characters, and lyrical language.
