Time After Time(Dromedy)Feb 16 - Mar 4, 2018(9 Performances) Amy, attractive, lonely and a little fed up with her dead-end job, is having an unusual day. An oddly dressed Englishman comes up to her desk, greatly concerned about an earlier visitor whom he is evidently following. What Amy doesn't realize yet is that both of these men have just left the fog-filled London streets of 1893 to come to present-day San Francisco. Jack the Ripper has used H.G. Wells' Time Machine to disappear into the future, and H.G. decides it's his responsibility to bring him back to London and justice. Befriended by Amy, H.G. begins to close in on Jack, which puts H.G. and Amy into some scenes that will have you gasping.
Enchanted April(Romantic Comedy)Apr 20 - May 6, 2018(9 Performances) From the novel by Elizabeth von Arnim. Feeling lost in the shadows of marriage and forgotten in the rush of 1920s post-war society, two London housewives pool their savings to rent a villa in Italy for a ladies-only holiday away, reluctantly recruiting a pair of difficult upper-class women to share the cost and the experience. Together under the Mediterranean sun, the four women clash—and then begin to bond and bloom - until men once again upset the balance.
Of Mice and Men(Drama)Jun 22 - Jul 8, 2018(9 Performances) Two drifters, George and his friend Lennie, have just arrived at a ranch to work for enough money to buy their own place. Lennie is a little boy in the body of a dangerously powerful man. It's Lennie's obsessions with things soft and cuddly that have made George cautious about with whom the gentle giant associates. But when a ranch boss' promiscuous wife is found dead in the barn, it's obvious that Lennie, albeit accidentally, killed her. George, now worried about his own safety, knows exactly where Lennie has gone to hide, and he meets him there. Realizing they can't run away anymore, George is faced with a moral question: how should he deal with Lennie before the ranchers find him and take matters into their own hands.
Private Eyes(Comedy)Aug 24 - Sept 9, 2018(9 Performances) This is a comedy of suspicion in which nothing is ever quite what it seems. Matthew's wife, Lisa, is having an affair with Adrian, a British theatre director. Or perhaps the affair is part of the play being rehearsed. Or perhaps Matthew has imagined all of it simply to have something to report to Frank, his therapist. And, finally, there is Cory—the mysterious woman who seems to shadow the others—who brings the story to its surprising conclusion. Or does she? The audience itself plays the role of detective in this hilarious "relationship thriller" about love, lust and the power of deception.
