Three short plays
by playwrights of color
December 4 - 20, 2020
In response to the nationwide call for social justice, we present BELONGING, a collection of three theatrical gems exploring the complex question, “Who Belongs?”
THE WINGED MAN
By José Rivera
By Lynn Nottage
ALL OF THE EVERYTHING
By Alayna Jacquelyne
By Charlayne Woodard
March 19 - April 11, 2021
Back by popular demand, NEAT is a magical, often humorous, coming-of-age story. Based in the oral traditions of the African Diaspora, award-winning playwright, Charlayne Woodard is a modern-day griot. As an infant, Woodard’s beloved Aunt Beneatha (Neat), is denied treatment at the local “white” hospital, leaving her with permanent brain damage. But Neat possesses an enormous heart. With love and simplicity, Neat teaches young Charlayne to embrace black pride and cherish life through the turbulent 1960s and 1970s.
With Marti Gobel reprising her 2012 tour-de-force role.
Tickets now available.

Theater is unique in its ability to bring us together, to remind us of what really matters. We believe it is more important than ever to continue telling stories that make you feel more, think harder and laugh louder — stories you won’t see anywhere else.
Because your health and safety is our top priority, we reimagined our 2020-21 season with an inspiring and flexible virtual season that’s just right for right now when we all need it most.
We can’t wait until we can safely see you in the lobby after a great show and hand you our signature chocolate!
Thank you for your patience as we navigate these challenging times. Stay healthy!
