Set in modern day NYC, Finding Chase is a world premiere play that examines how, when we choose to make space for love, we inevitably choose to make space for present truth—no matter how much we want to manipulate or deny it. After a vibrant man unexpectedly takes his life, he leaves behind his partner of 8 years, his hero dad, and a note with a very explicit final wish: for his partner and dad to spend time together even though they have never spoken. Tensions erupt when the two men come face-to-face and lay bare the truth of their feelings about one another. Packed with nuanced relationships, humor, and great emotional depth, Finding Chase is not to be missed.
Directed by Robynn Rodriguez.
One of Shakespeare’s most raucous comedies, in The Taming of the Shrew characters struggle against the roles they have been prescribed by gender, class, or age. While the results of these struggles provide some of the most hilarious moments in the canon, they also leave us with unsettling questions about the human cost of maintaining the status quo. Thorny, funny, and deeply human, Kate and Petruchio are two of Shakespeare’s most fascinating characters. Out of place because of their honesty in a world of deception, can these two broken people find happiness where they least expect it?
