The Merry Wives of Windsor

Corpulent mooch and layabout Sir John Falstaff decides his path to riches lies in finding a wealthy woman to woo. He sets about writing identical love letters to two married ladies in Windsor and though the letters fail to have their intended effect, the ladies find it excellent sport to pretend to play Falstaff's game. The result is a hilarious study of marriage and fidelity in one of Shakespeare's most popular farces.

A Streetcar named Desire

Aging southern beauty Blanche DuBois heads to New Orleans to stay with her sister Stella and her quick-tempered husband Stanley. Blanche’s frailty and unstable mental state mixed with Stanley’s violent temper make an explosive combination leading to a shocking climax. A memorable story of love, hatred, and the quest for lasting redemption.


Esteemed general and leader Othello has won the heart of the lovely Desdemona; but not everyone is happy. Iago, perhaps Shakespeare's most fully realized villain, whispers that Desdemona is unfaithful to play upon Othello's jealousy and self-doubt. Can Iago turn Othello's distrustful temperament against him and bring him down? Love and jealousy fight to the death in this classic tragedy.

The Importance of Being Earnest

John Worthing, a carefree young gentleman has a fictitious brother, "Ernest," whose wicked ways afford John an excuse to leave his country home and journey to London. John's friend in London, Algernon Moncrieff, has a cousin Gwendolen whom John has wooed under the name of Ernest. Yet Gwendolen's mother, Lady Bracknell, refuses to approve the proposed marriage unless John/Ernest can come up with parents of a more respectable nature than a handbag found at Victoria Station. Confused? Don't worry it all comes out well in Wilde's popular and witty play of love, marriage, and manners.
