As we emerge from the challenges of the last two years, we’re thrilled to share plays that take audiences on a journey of healing, redemption, and celebration. From classic comedy to resonant dramas, and culminating in a celebratory musical, it is our hope that the 2022/23 season will both delight and uplift audiences with stories of our shared humanity. One of the greatest strengths of theatre is the way it brings people together. We cannot wait to see you again!

Soulful and stirring, The Gospel at Colonus reimagines the story of Oedipus as the centerpiece of an African American Pentecostal church service. A redemptive celebration, this one-of-a-kind theatrical event breathes new life into a classic myth with a score of powerful gospel music.
