June 7 – June 22  DEATHTRAP
A long-running Broadway thriller by Ira Levin about a famous playwright who will stop at nothing (including murder!) to create his next big hit. Great writing with heart-stopping twists. Sure to keep you guessing… and gasping… until the end!

August 6 – August 17  COCKEYED
A brilliantly written new comedy-romance by William Missouri Downs (author of KOSHER LUTHERANS) about the office romance between a one-eyed beauty queen and a Plato-quoting philosophy major (who happens to be invisible). He must woo the gorgeous, one-eyed gal before she agrees to marry the boss.
