What would it take for you to sell your soul?
In this fiendishly funny dark comedy, Elizabeth Sawyer meets the devil. Scratch has come to haggle over souls with the residents of the tiny village of Edmonton. Elizabeth should be the easiest to convince — she’s an outcast, branded as a witch for years. So why is she the only one to resist Scratch’s deal? This subversive, inventive play adapts a Jacobean comedy with modern sensibilities and is “devilishly clever and deliciously laugh-packed” (StageSceneLA).

What makes life worth living?

How far would you go to follow in your family’s footsteps?
This powerful portrait of a Puerto Rican military family by Pulitzer Prize winner and Tony Award® nominee Quiara Alegría Hudes (In the Heights) is a breathtaking symphony of music, memories, and the things that mark our bodies…and our souls.

What does beauty mean to someone who doesn’t have it?
Nobel Prize and Pulitzer-Prize-winning author Toni Morrison's The Bluest Eye is a story of 11- year-old Pecola Breedlove who wants nothing more than to be loved by her family and schoolmates. Instead, she faces constant ridicule and abuse. Blaming her dark skin, she prays for blue eyes, sure that love will follow. With rich language and bold vision, this story examines the standards of beauty, a young girl’s coming of age, and the devastating events she endures.
