SPEAK | THINK | ACT ... The way we use language dictates our thoughts and, ultimately, our actions. With the stories in our 2021 season, we investigate the facets of this idea to highlight the importance of authenticity. The words we choose can move hearts to love and minds to open. Chosen words can instead have dire unintended ramifications, from minor misunderstandings to major political disasters.

These themes resonated when these stories were chosen to fill our 2020 season, which was postponed to 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As we dust off these pages, covered by months of isolation and distance, a tenuous political world where we’ve seen anew the consequences of words, and a call for a systemic revolution that is a matter of life and death, we feel galvanized in the importance of these tales. We know this 2021 season will be a time of healing, contemplation, and steps forward, and we are proud to offer our space as temple for the celebration of humanity.

Cyrano De Bergerac

A story, at its core, about otherness and the curated personas we create. Our production investigates these themes through the perspective of a trans/non-binary hero. Erin Murray (director, Shakespeare’s Other Women) returns to excite audiences with this swashbuckling romance, full of panache.
