Two Weekends and a Day by Susan J. Westfall
World Premiere - November 21 - December 13, 2015
Penned by local playwright Susan Westfall, this new work is set on one couple's beachside porch and another couple's country deck, over the course of two weekends and a day. This sexy and bittersweet play follows the friendship of four adults who, in the words of Jimmy Buffett, are growing older... and finally growing up through the most devastating moments in their lives... after mid¬life crisis. The play was conceived with the help of the Cultural Affairs Departments Playwrighting Development Program alongside the mentorship of Deborah Zoe Laufer in 2014.
Franz & Albert by Mario Diament
What happened when Franz Kafka and Albert Einstein met in Prague, in 1911? In Franz & Albert, his latest work, Mario Diament recreates the circumstances of this encounter and imagines what those two young geniuses would have said to each other. The result is a maelstrom of thoughts and ideas, a conversation where nothing is left out, from space-time to insects, from war and revolution to sex and marriage.
