January 23-February 1 - Murder Ballad

Enter uptown girl Sara, who by all appearances has everything. But appearances are, as always, deceiving, and her downtown past lurks in the background. "Murder Ballad" spins the tale of a love triangle gone seriously wrong. Sara's torn between her dark ex-boyfriend and Michael, her husband, with whom she has a daughter. Filled with powerful music, the show explores the complications that enter into our lives when we compromise. A story of love and betrayal, it's a fun but dark, edgy thriller. Mature content.

$15 ($12 for members).

Presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.
February 6-22 - Crimes of the Heart

This tragic comedy follows the three McGrath sisters, Meg, Babe, and Lenny, who reunite at Old Granddaddy's home in Hazlehurst, Mississippi after Babe shoots her abusive husband. The trio was raised in a dysfunctional family with a penchant for ugly predicaments and each has endured her share of hardship and misery. Past resentments bubble to the surface as they're forced to deal with assorted relatives and past relationships while trying to cope with the latest incident that has disrupted their lives. Each sister is forced to face the consequences of the "crimes of the heart" she has committed.

February 13-22 - The Vagina Monologues

Observing the manner in which women spoke of their bodies, playwright Eve Ensler believed this was a reflection on how they actually felt about themselves and their gender. "The Vagina Monologues" was inspired from a series of essays she wrote about the female body and the language women used to express themselves, to write this series of monologues brought to the stage initially in her one-woman show, now performed by a number of women. A thoughtful look at the female experience, with an unblinking look at topics such as sex, love, rape, birth, and the vagina as an expression of female individuality. Mature themes.

$15 ($12 for members).
