Calling all '90s kids! 

What if our favorite '90s characters had to grow up, like we did? This award-winning nostalgic sketch comedy play celebrates the last true decade by blending '90s pop culture with the present. What if the Midnight Society still told stories? What if you started using your CD Player again? Where is Waldo, anyway? Hey ’90s Kids You’re Old will bring you back to yesteryear, but will also examine what it means to be a ’90s kid in a post ’90s world.

Open: 10/13/18- Close: 10/21/18 ONAJE
Set against the backdrop of the Cambridge race riots on the Eastern Shore of Maryland in July 1967, ONAJE is an exploration of buried secrets and the journey through the darkest of human souls. This new play is set in two worlds: the open road of the 1980s, and a burning neighborhood in 1967, where a young man, his family and his soul come face to face with the crushing hatred of racism. ONAJE is a journey to understand the past and find a way forward toward a new future.

In this poignant one-woman show Lisa reflects on a life changing experience that put her on the path to career success, but took advantage of her still-developing sense of self and timidity in the face of sexual pressure from a trusted mentor.

It’s 3 am on election night. Campaign headquarters is outfitted for a huge celebIt’s 3 am on election night. Campaign headquarters is outfitted for a huge celebration, but the room is dead quiet. Laura Smith, the Republican incumbent and supposed favorite, lost her Senate race in a landslide. Suddenly without friends, and drunk as a skunk, Laura is thinking of cashing it all in…that is, until one of her loyal and spunky interns, Jesse, rescues her from the brink of disaster and wrestles her, quite literally, back to political life. With the uninvited ghost of FDR, THE WAR PARTY is a modern political parable about our broken two-party system.
