Bringing New and Innovative Theatre to Michiana
By Christopher Durang
From the master playwright of satire, comes this zany new play. Veronica, already scarred by too many failed relationships, finds the world a frightening place. Skylab, an American space station that came crashing down to earth, in particular, haunts and enrages her. So she has committed suicide, and is now in what she expected to be heaven but is instead something called the Bardo (the netherworld in Tibetan Buddhism), and the forces there keep trying to make her reincarnate. So far she's thwarted these return visits to earth with a sort of "spiritual otherworldly emergency brake system" she seems to have. However, a lovely if strong-willed Indian spirit guide named Maryamma is intent on getting Veronica back to earth so she can learn the lessons her soul is supposed to learn. "This is Durang at the top of his metaphysical, apocalyptic, high-and-pop cultural game…thoroughly lovable. And funny." —NY Newsday.

The breathtaking glamour and decadence of the 1920s comes to the stage in F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic novel in critically acclaimed Simon Levy's adaptation. Jay Gatsby, a self-made millionaire, passionately pursues the elusive Daisy Buchanan. Nick Carraway, a young newcomer to Long Island, is drawn into their world of obsession, greed and danger. Hailed by the London Free Press as “a beautifully crafted interpretation of the 1925 novel which defined the Jazz Age…This is indeed a grand GATSBY."
