In this Shakespearean comedy-of-sorts, Venice has become a perpetual party town.  A host of immoral comic figures insist on continuing to party despite a new deputy to the Duke who is determined to bring morality back to the city while the Duke is away on business.  But even the deputy discovers he is not immune to temptation, as intrigues, disguises, and amorous plots propel this twisted, comedic adventure to its unexpected conclusion.


The season continues Indoors at Greystone hall.

A comedic romp into the world of fantasy role-playing games, She Kills Monsters tells the story of Agnes Evans as she leaves her childhood home in Ohio following the death of her teenage sister, Tilly. When Agnes finds Tilly’s Dungeons & Dragons notebook, however, she stumbles into a journey of discovery and action-packed adventure in the imaginary world that was Tilly’s refuge. This high-octane dramatic comedy laden with homicidal fairies, nasty ogres, and 90s pop culture, offers a heart-pounding homage to the geek and warrior within us all.

It’s the story of the warrior saint, who also happens to be a woman. Joan hears voices in her head. But she’s not mad—or at least, she says she’s not. It’s just the voice of God giving her instructions to help raise the siege of Orleans. And it’s hard to doubt her—she appears unafraid of anything, and the things she predicts tend to come true. George Bernard Shaw’s sweeping drama follows the epic life of the Maid of Orleans, from the Dauphin’s court, to the battlefield, to the prosecution chair, and finally, to the pyre.

It’s Sherlock like you’ve never seen her before.

When an anonymous note sends a newlywed wife looking for help, Miss Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Dorothy Watson work together to uncover the secrets surrounding a corrupt police inspector whose wives have a habit of turning up dead. But this Holmes and Watson face far greater challenges than bringing the cunning criminal to justice. Miss Holmes possesses one of the greatest deductive minds of her generation, but she chafes at the restraints imposed upon her by society and family. Dr. Watson struggles to make a difference at the only hospital in London that will hire female doctors. In a time and place where gender roles are rigidly defined, these unconventional women dare to challenge societal norms by providing an unusual, but necessary, service.
