Silent Sky

By Lauren Gunderson

Oct. 14-17, 2021

Dede Robertson Theatre

Directed by Eric Harrell

It’s 1901 and a group of women “computers” at Harvard Observatory crunch numbers for esteemed male astronomers. But one pioneering woman, Henrietta Leavitt, charts a map to the Milky Way that will forever change the way we see the universe. Along the way, she must confront her life choices beneath the stars even as she reaches beyond them. An unforgettable true story from the playwright of last season’s Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley.

SILENT SKY is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.

In December of 1940, May and Raleigh are strangers who meet on a train leaving California. Both are disappointedly returning home from a military base there. Coincidentally, they happen to come from neighboring Kentucky towns. Can this unlikely romance bloom in a world teetering on the brink of war?

LAST TRAIN TO NIBROC is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.

Julius Caesar

By William Shakespeare

Mar. 3-6, 2022

Directed by John Forkner

“Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears,” declares Marc Antony in the Bard’s classic tale of conspiracy and intrigue. In Ancient Rome, the rumors say that Julius Caesar intends to crown himself king. Politics and loyalty collide as his trusted friend Brutus struggles between his devotion to Caesar and his love for Rome. Just in time for the Ides of March, these characters remind us that “the fault … is not in our stars, but in ourselves.”
