December brings the premiere production of company co-founder Robert A. O'Connell's "The Very Different Christmas Dinner," directed by the author and running at the Darkhorse Theater December 9-18 2011. Rob and Laura Dish pray that their dinner party guests could be more interesting than their usual friends, and are surprised by the arrival of guests Abe Lincoln, Amelia Earhart, Oscar Wilde, Marilyn Monroe, Janis Joplin, and Jesus.
"Unconditional" is Nashville playwright Myra Stephens' unflinching look at life on the streets -- a mother and daughter and their community of lost souls, all living under an elevated train bridge on the streets in Chicago. Their love, and the strength and support of their adopted family, must survive the trials of the world around them, counting on each other to be at their best when the world is at its worst. "Unconditional" runs at the Darkhorse Theater, March 2-10 2012.
