Our Season:

Doctor Faustus Lights the Lights by Gertrude Stein

September 27-29 & October 2-5, 2019

Directed by Rachel Joseph 

Performed in the Attic Theater

Legendary modernist Gertrude Stein’s 1938 Doctor Faustus Lights the Lights riffs on versions of the Faust myth, questioning traditional notions of knowledge, identity, and power. Doctor Faustus sells his soul to Mephisto for the power of electric light. A viper in the woods bites Marguerite Ida and Helena Annabel, a mysterious woman whose name is a mash-up of iconic literary characters. Suddenly, after Doctor Faustus heals her, she gains the power of natural light without selling her soul, making the ill-gotten gains of Doctor Faustus all for naught. Can Marguerite Ida and Helena Annabel’s multiplicity and connection with the natural world prevail over the moral bankruptcy of Doctor Faustus and the devil?

They Mystery of Edwin Drood a musical by Rupert Holmes

November 15-17 & 20-23, 2019

Directed by Nathan Stith 

Based on an unfinished Charles Dickens novel, The Mystery of Edwin Drood by Rupert Holmes is a madcap musical comedy whodunit! At every performance, the audience votes on who they think murdered Edwin Drood! Join us at the Music Hall Royale, where a troupe of Victorian actors reenact Dickens' novel and then lets you decide how the story ends!

Cities of Memory

February 21-23 & 26-29, 2020

Created by Trinity Students 

Directed by Kyle Gillette 

This new performance piece explores cities and the ways memory, travel and imagination intersect. Drawing from literature, film and other arts that depict experiences of urban travel as well as personal memories of cities known or imagined, students interweave remembered cities and hoped-for cities, cities that have vanished and cities that have never been.

Tartuffe by Molière 

April 17-19 & 22-25, 2020

Directed by Stacey Connelly 

Prosperous Orgon takes pious Tartuffe into his home and heart, to purify his family and ensure his salvation. Yet his devout friend plots to claim much more than his soul! How will Orgon's patient wife, charming children, and saucy maid withstand the wiles of their tyrannical guest? Molière's delightful comedy will keep you guessing and laughing.
