Yasmina Reza’s award-winning play about three friends, the meaning of art and life, and the lengths we go – however joyful, painful, or maddening - to protect those we care about. An intelligent show, the perfect marriage between crackling language, biting humor, and the fragile, feeling hearts that make us who we are.

Description automatically generatedAn uproariously funny comedy about bonding, baking, and the end of the world. 


It’s 1956 and the Susan B. Anthony Society for the Sisters of Gertrude Stein are having their annual holiday quiche breakfast. As the assembled “widows” await the announcement of the prize-winning quiche, the atomic bomb sirens sound! Has the Communist threat come to pass? How will they all respond as their idyllic town – and lifestyles – faces an attack? 5 Lesbians is the award winning, Off-Broadway smash, that took America, then Brisbane, by storm and will have audiences coming back for second helpings. Respect the egg!

It’s the most hilarious evening of laughs a little town could ever give.


The guys – and gals - are back! A Tuna Christmas is the outrageous holiday comedy with such southern fun and charm you don’t want to miss. Reuniting Rick Smith and Scot Friedman, two actors introduce us to twenty-two of the wildest Tuna, Texas – population, 24 – citizens you will ever meet as they search for the Christmas phantom who has been spreading havoc on their little town. With quick-change zaniness and quicksilver one-liners, they bring “joy to the world” in true Texas fashion. Come have a ball, y’all!
