Travels With My AuntBy Graham Greene
Adapted by Giles Havergal
Directed by Lane Fields
February 18 - March 11, 2000
Graham Greene's comic plot revolves around a prematurely retired banker who is suddenly dragged kicking and screaming into the incredibly picaresque world of his vivacious and flamboyant "old Aunt Augusta." The charming novel is now a delightful stage comedy.


KindertransportBy Diane Samuels
Directed By Hal Kohlman
March 24 - April 15, 2000
In 1938, 7-year-old Eva is put aboard a train filled with other Jewish children and carried away from Nazi Germany in a little-known rescue operation called "Kindertransport." More than four decades later, we watch the grown woman who has tried to forget at the moment when her daughter discovers a storage box of papers. As her daughter questions her, a shattering truth emerges about Eva's identity; the true cost of survival and a future that has grown out of a traumatized past. A stunning dramatic creation, KINDERTRANSPORT tells of a miracle amid unimaginable horror and probes the complexity of emotions in those who must lose everything they love in order to live.

The long running Off-Broadway absurdist comedy laces Albert Einstein and Pablo Picasso in a Parisian cafe in 1904. "Martin sends ideas on stage in baggy pants with a cigar...mixing the sublime with the ridiculous (so) that they can't be easily disentangled...Very good fun." -- NY Times

6 Women logoBy Cheryl Benge, Christy Brandt, Rosanna Coppedge, Valerie Fagan, Ross Freese, Mark Houston, Sandee Johnson, and Peggy Pharr Wilson.
Directed by Rhonda Clark
June 16 - July 8, 2000
The cult classic is back! 6 WOMEN is a hard rockin', harder talkin' roller coaster ride through the end of the millennium. It's a wild and womanly supermarket checkout, headline touting, right-on look at our contemporary culture, from "genuine press-on-nails" to Barbie and Ken, with detours through a forest where Bambi meets Rambo and severed heads from aging prom queens have a chatty life after decapitation. With music and lyrics by Oklahoma's own Mark Houston, this hilarious romp is, once again, sure to please!
