In the Powerhouse Theater

By Lucy Thurber
Directed by Jackson Gay

As two young men from the Bronx vie for acceptance to an elite college, their shared past threatens to overshadow their bright futures.  Class, ambition, and expectations are called into question when higher education – and its life-changing potential – is just within reach.  From Obie Award-winning writer Lucy Thurber (The Hill Town Plays, Scarcity), directed by Jackson Gay (These Paper Bullets!, The Jammer, Where We’re Born).

The Wolves

July 21 - July 31, 2016

In the Powerhouse Theater

By Sarah DeLappe
Directed by Lila Neugebauer

It's a Saturday in winter, somewhere in the suburbs, and a high school girls’ soccer team warms up for its indoor game. They stretch in sync – right quad, left quad, lunge – and their conversations spin around and off their turf, far outside the air dome bubble, and back again.  Newcomer Sarah DeLappe (winner of the inaugural Relentless Award, in honor of Philip Seymour Hoffman) comes to Powerhouse with this searing black comedy about the privilege and pain of nine American girls who just want to score some goals. Directed by Lila Neugebauer (Wayside Motor Inn, 4000 Miles, Kill Floor).
