BLUE/ORANGE is a caustically funny play about race and the mental health system. In a London psychiatric hospital, an enigmatic patient claims to be the son of an African dictator–a story that seems unnervingly plausible. What begins as a battle of wills between a young idealistic doctor and his jaded superior over the appropriate course of treatment for his patient, eventually turns into something altogether different. The three character play will be performed by well-known actors, David Whalen and Sam Tsoutsouvas and newcomer, Rico Parker with Andrew S. Paul, directing and Mark Clayton Southers, producing.

A ground-breaking adventurous musical, PASSING STRANGE tells the story of a young African American’s travels from his roots in Los Angeles to Europe and back in his search for personal and artistic authenticity.

During the course of a midsummer night in the post-Civil War South, MISS JULIE, the young daughter of a plantation owner seeks to escape her cramped uptight life by trying to seduce one of her father’s former slaves. What begins as a flirtatious grappling for power between the two quickly escalates into a sexual relationship which has dark consequences. This new adaptation mixes race into the dangerous cocktail of class and gender politics that Strindberg exploded onstage, restoring the sense of shock and outrage with which audiences greeted the play’s original premiere.
