In the rigid theocracy of Salem; Massachusetts; rumors that women are practicing witchcraft galvanize the town. The ruthlessness of the prosecutors and the eagerness of neighbor to testify against neighbor; THE CRUCIBLE mirrors the anti-Communist hysteria in the 1950’s.

Three terminally stylish friends, who share rivalrous affections, attempt to uncoil their twisted love triangle in this sexy and scandalous gem.

Thirteen-year-old Franklin Robertson is trying to survive adolescence.

A. Theatre Works, 2000, originally published 1911), 1 hour 46 mins
The blowhards, the know-it-alls, the scrupulous, and the impecunious are all targets for Shaw’s incisive wit in his classic satire of the medical profession. A well-respected physician is forced to choose whom he shall save: a bumbling friend or the ne’er-do-well husband of the woman he loves.

Nora Helmer has everything a young housewife could want: beautiful children, an adoring husband, and a bright future.

Each Day Dies With Sleep

This is the story of a young woman's struggle to find an identity apart from the two men in her life — her father and her husband. Written in Rivera's typical satiric and super realistic style, this fantastical tragic-comedy leaps from coast to coast, and from one outrageous moment to the next.
