Drop Dead, Juliet (2 week)
by Allison Williams
Have you ever wondered how Shakespeare’s tragic love story would end if Romeo did not fall for Juliet? In Allison Williams’ refreshingly comical play DROP DEAD, JULIET, a spunky, actress portraying Juliet is fed up with her character’s fate. She wants happily ever after, NOT a tragic death. With the help of an old friend, she adds more females, gets rid of fighting, and possibly leads Romeo to fall in love with the wrong girl. She soon comes to the realization that maybe change isn’t always a good idea.

Eurydice tells the story of the Greek myth of Orpheus- but through Eurydice’s eyes. Sarah Ruhl’s play version follows Eurydice from the day of her engagement to the day she is (meant to be) led out of the underworld. Over the course of this journey, she gets engaged to Orphea, gets married, goes to the apartment of a Nasty Interesting Man, falls down stairs, goes to the Underworld (which is guarded by The Stones), is bothered by the Lord of the Underworld, and reunites with her parents. Orphea, left in the world of the mortals, goes to find her. However, the Underworld is fond of erasing people’s memories- will Eurydice want to go back?
The Miracle Worker
by William Gibson
Helen Keller, daughter of a unreconstructed rebel newspaperman in Alabama, becomes blind and deaf in an early childhood illness. Her parents are frantic and, as she gets older, she becomes more and more of a wild being. In desperation they appeal to a school for the blind and recruit Anne Sullivan to “handle” their child. The conflicts between Helen and Anne and Anne and the Kellers are stuff of which plays are made. In fact, it is the stuff of which this play is made. Based on the true story and experience of Annie Sullivan, “The Miracle Worker” is as powerful as it is true.
