Committed  | Open: 04/05/07 Close: 04/21/07
From the company that produced "Hello, My Name Is..." and "I'd Leave You...But We Have Reservations" comes COMMITTED, a trio of side-splitting one-acts.

Off the Cuff by William K. Powers is a rip-roaring farce in the tradition of Caryl Churchill. A quirky New York family finally notices the mysterious bank robber sitting in their parlor and invites him to stay for drinks. Holli Harms directs.

Tony Zertuche's Men are Pigs is a riotous comedy that turns the tables on dating. Are men born pigs or do women turn them into swine? Marlo Hunter directs.

Boxes by Robert Askins is a touching, yet darkly comic play about two siblings trying to bury the past. Literally. Lindsay Goss directs.

Emilie's Voltaire  | Open: 01/15/09 Close: 02/07/09
Set during the French Enlightenment, the play chronicles the volcanic, law-breaking, sexually-driven, intellectually-fuelled, sixteen-year love affair between Francois-Marie Arouet (VOLTAIRE) and Gabrielle Emilie Le Tonnelier de Breteuil, Marquise du Chatelet (EMILIE).

God, Sex & Blue Water  | Open: 04/18/09 Close: 05/09/09
 A Test of Faith    An Act of Love      A Choice

It is a world away from the Philippine Islands to Hoboken, New Jersey for a girl with a gift from God.
As her Uncle Max sings Karaoke and her Mother prepares for the Pasyon, a Filipino Lenten ritual of self-crucifixion, Clarita faces a greater unknown- love. Torn between her feelings for her Mother and her new American lover she must sacrifice all she has known to discover the meaning of faith.

Only maybe New Jersey is not the right place for any of this.
