Written by Bekah Brunstetter and directed by Courtney O'Connor, The Cake is a heartfelt new play that tackles the gay-wedding-cake debate with humor and empathy. Conflict collides with confection when Della, a traditional Southern baker, reunites with her deceased best friend's daughter, Jen, in preparation for Jen's wedding. Della is forced to question her strongly-held beliefs when she is asked to bake Jen's dream wedding cake for her and her future wife. Questions of morals, judgment and family swirl around them all in this heartfelt and deliciously funny new play.
Hundred Days is an uncensored, exhilarating and heartrending true story about embracing uncertainty, taking a leap and loving as if you only had 100 days to live. A luminous musical memoir scored to anthemic folk music, Hundred Days shines a light in the darkness and is "ablaze with the ephemeral nature of life and love." Staged in our Black Box, this intimate and engaging concert-musical is the perfect vehicle to highlight the versatility of our new home.
Bright Half Life follows the decades-spanning journey of lesbian couple Erica and Vicky. They meet, fall in love, marry, have children, and eventually divorce - not necessarily in that order, however, as their relationship unfolds via a nonlinear timeline. This dream logic rules the play - between courtship, marriage, parenthood, loss, and divorce, the characters grapple with intersectionality, legality, identity, and the concept of soulmates.
Winner of both the Pulitzer Prize and the Tony Award for Best Play, Clybourne Park is a razor-sharp satire about the politics of race. In response to Lorraine Hansberry's A Raisin in the Sun, playwright Bruce Norris set up Clybourne Park as a pair of scenes that bookend Hansberry's piece. These two scenes, 50 years apart, are both set in the same modest bungalow on Chicago's northwest side that features at the center of A Raisin in the Sun. The first scene takes place before and the second scene takes place after the events of A Raisin in the Sun. In 1959, Russ and Bev are moving out to the suburbs after the tragic death of their son. Inadvertently, they have sold their house to the neighborhood's first black family. Fifty years later in 2009, the roles are reversed when a young white couple buys the lot in what is now a predominantly black neighborhood, signaling a new wave of gentrification. In both instances, a community showdown takes place, pitting race against real estate with this home as the battleground.
Jessie is feeling trapped and alone on maternity leave in her new Long Island duplex.

This insightful comedy with dark edges takes an honest look at the absurdities of new motherhood, the dilemma of returning to work, and how class impacts parenthood and friendship in America. Cry It Out stars Becca A. Lewis as Jessie.
