SYNOPSIS: Culled from interviews, letters, transcripts, case files and the public record, THE EXONERATED tells the true stories of six wrongfully convicted survivors of death row in their own words.  Moving between first-person monologues and scenes set in courtrooms and prisons, the six interwoven stories paint a picture of an American criminal justice system gone horribly wrong—and of six brave souls who persevered to survive it.

SYNOPSIS:  Viola and her twin brother Sebastian have been shipwrecked; each believes the other to be drowned. Viola disguises herself as a young man and, under the name of Cesario, gets a job as a servant for the Duke, Orsino. Orsino is in love with Olivia, but she's mourning for her dead brother, so has rejected all his advances so far. He sends Cesario (who is really Viola) with love letters to woo Olivia on his behalf. Unfortunately for the Duke, Olivia is taken in by Cesario’s disguise and falls in love with him.

Viola has secretly fallen in love with Orsino, and Orsino is confused by his feelings for his new ‘male’ servant. So, Viola loves Orsino, Orsino loves Olivia and Olivia loves Cesario/Viola.  Viola's brother, Sebastian, who believes his sister is dead, arrives with his friend and protector, Antonio, who rescued him from the shipwreck. Sebastian meets Olivia. She mistakes him for Cesario and asks him to marry her, he agrees. 

Lots of confusion follows around the mistaken identity of Sebastian and Cesario, and exactly who is promised to whom. Eventually all is revealed, the brother and sister are reunited and the love triangle is resolved into two couples, Sebastian and Olivia, and Viola and Orsino.

A Streetcar Named Desire

Written by Tennessee Williams
Directed by C. Stephens

PERFORMANCE DATES:

Thursday, Feb. 21 at 12:45 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
Friday and Saturday, Feb. 22* and 23 at 7:30 p.m.
Sunday, Feb. 24 at 2 p.m

* Interpreted for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing

Produced by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service

SYNOPSIS: The play reveals to the very depths the character of Blanche du Bois, a woman whose life has been undermined by her romantic illusions, which lead her to reject—so far as possible—the realities of life with which she is faced and which she consistently ignores. The pressure brought to bear upon her by her sister, with whom she goes to live in New Orleans, intensified by the earthy and extremely "normal" young husband of the latter, leads to a revelation of her tragic self-delusion and, in the end, to madness. A tragic and effective drama which ranks as one of the greatest in our theater.

The Glass Menagerie

Written by Tennessee Williams
Directed by Daniel J. Betzler

* Interpreted for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing

Produced by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service

SYNOPSIS:  Amanda Wingfield is a faded, tragic remnant of Southern gentility who lives in poverty in a dingy St. Louis apartment with her son, Tom, and her daughter, Laura. Amanda strives to give meaning and direction to her life and the lives of her children, though her methods are ineffective and irritating. A drama of great tenderness, charm and beauty, THE GLASS MENAGERIE is one of the most famous plays of the modern theater.
