As You Like It 2023

Awash in wit and exuberant in a bedrock belief that love conquers all, this beloved Shakespeare comedy races toward a happy ending and four –  count them, four – weddings.

Eurydice 2023

Ruhl’s wildly imaginative bittersweet comedy Eurydice reimagines the classic myth of Orpheus and Eurydice not through Orpheus’s infamous pilgrimage to retrieve his bride, but through the eyes of its heroine. Dying too young on her wedding day, Eurydice must journey to the underworld, where she reunites with her father and struggles to remember her lost life.
