The Climbers
by Clyde Fitch
September 8 - October 8, 2017

In the middle of the Great Depression an idyllic summer among the rich is threatened by forces that pit the haves against the have-nots.
by Arthur Kopit

November 17 - December 17, 2017
From 1968, the story of 19th Century European Americans’ settlement of western North America and displacement and confinement of the Native American population, as well as its subsequent mythologizing of that time…and told as a Wild West Show starring none other than Buffalo Bill Cody!  Written as a protesting inquiry into the Vietnam War, Indians resonates anew with today’s confrontations between cultures foreign and domestic.
