Two powerful new plays are here

Not one but two new plays are out to kick off our fall season!

Paul Dunn's play for young audiences, Outside, is about bullying, homophobia, and what it means to be an ally.

The Doorman of Windsor Station by Julie Vincent (translated by Hugh Hazelton), is about a man who escaped a dangerous homeland only to find more struggles as an immigrant.

Make sure to check out these fantastic books.
