A comedy by Alan Ayckbourn

This surprising comedy by Ayckbourn, the master of the form, was nominated for London’s prestigious Olivier Award and New York’s Drama Desk Award.

A comedy by Garson Kanin

A Broadway triumph, Born Yesterday is a deliciously witty screwball comedy.

Brock soon learns that a little learning can be a dangerous thing.

August 26 - September 6
A romantic comedy by Bruce Graham

Is a second chance at love still possible — for two people who have a lot of miles on them? Lou is just about to close up his bar for the night when Stella, one of his favorite regulars, walks in. When Stella suddenly reveals an unexpected surprise and even more startling suggestion, they wrestle with the realities of aging, loneliness, loss and dreams unrealized.

September 9 - September 13
