A Streetcar Named Sisterhood
by Tennessee Williams

Petty sibling rivalries flare when iconic Southern belle Blanche DuBois is caught holding hands with her brother-in-law, Stanley Kowalski. Looks like it’s up to STELLAAA! (remember that?) to win back her man, all while always never forgetting to remember to depend on the kindness…of sisters.

How I Learned to Fib
by Paula Vogel

Put the pedal to the metal with this rollicking road trip down memory play lane! You’ll be laughing a mile a minute at one ungrateful woman’s hazy recollections of the close, uncomplicated relationship she shared with the adoring uncle who generously taught her to drive. I mean, kids make up the craziest stories, don’t they?

Long Afternoon’s Journey Into Late Afternoon
by Eugene O’Neill

A delightfully wacky theatrical family enjoys a relaxing day of simple reminiscing, affectionate teasing, and short, restful naps. But beloved matriarch Mary Tyrone sure does love those hot fudge sundaes! Better watch that figure, Mary!

Ma Rainey’s White Blouse
by August Wilson

A recording session by popular Christian songstress Ma Rainey goes exactly as planned, and a young boy overcomes his frustrating speech impediment by simply trying harder. Feel the spirit with such classic calls to faith as “Amazing Grace Blues” and “I’ve Got that Joy, Joy, Joy, Joy Blues.”

My Town
by Thornton Wilder

Told in Wilder’s signature literalist style, the residents of Grover’s Corners, an American anytown in the early 20th century, come together as a community to learn the value of remaining self-sufficient, minding one’s own beeswax, and prioritizing independence and privacy above all else. Now, get off my ladder or I’ll shoot!

Angels in America: A Traditional Marriage Fantasia on National Themes
by Tony Kushner

Set in the idyllic world of 1985, this utopian masterpiece tells the intertwined stories of a successfully married Southern Baptist lawyer’s exceptional record of service with the Justice Department–and an unrepentant sodomite who gets exactly what he deserves. With simple sets and flexible casting, this play is perfect for Sunday School groups, and can accommodate up to twenty precious lil angels!

Death of a Welfare Recipient
by Arthur Miller

Willy Loman has decided he’s “too good” for a hard day’s work–and his adult sons aren’t worth a hoot, neither! Through a series of dream-memories and memory-dreams, Willy comes to terms with the burden his lazy attitude places on society, and considerately takes his own life, hoping his sons might follow in his footsteps. Now with 100% less talk of nipples!
