The Grown-Ups

by Simon Henriques and Skylar Fox

The campers are all finally asleep, and the lake is getting quiet. Have a beer; make a s’more; tell a scary story. Figure out what you’re going to have to do in the morning to keep camp fun and safe without letting the kids find out about... well, you’ve seen the news. I just got a push notification—they’re getting closer.

Following a group of camp counselors trying to mold the leaders of tomorrow when tomorrow is looking bleaker and bleaker, The Grown-Ups explores the traditions that change us, what it takes for us to change them, and how to change yourself when you’re hopelessly, tragically not prepared for this.

“An apocalyptic play... part satire, part scary story.” – The New York Times

The Play that Goes Wrong

High School Edition

By Henry Lewis, Henry Shields, and Jonathan Sayer

From Mischief, Broadway masters of comedy, comes the smash hit farce. Welcome to opening night of the Cornley University Drama Society’s newest production, The Murder at Haversham Manor, where things are quickly going from bad to utterly disastrous. This 1920s whodunit has everything you never wanted in a show—an unconscious leading lady, a corpse that can’t play dead, and actors who trip over everything (including their lines). Nevertheless, the accident-prone thespians battle against all odds to make it through to their final curtain call, with hilarious consequences! Part Monty Python, part Sherlock Holmes, this Olivier Award–winning comedy is a global phenomenon that’s guaranteed to leave you aching with laughter!

An Image Now of you Then

by John Bowden

Alan had a brother, and now he has a tattoo. Perhaps the tattoo is a fitting memorial of his brother, or perhaps it's a vain attempt at one. Tattoos, photos, recordings, letters – all things we bring to the future from the past. But are these things truly permanent, when even we ourselves aren't?

Love and Information

by Caryl Churchill

Someone can’t get a signal. Someone won’t answer the door. Someone put an elephant on the stairs. Someone’s not ready to talk. Someone hates irrational numbers. Someone told the police. Someone got a message from the traffic light. Someone doesn’t understand pain. Someone’s never felt like this before.

Love and Information is an insightful, poetic, and fast-­paced play by award-­winning British playwright Caryl Churchill.

In over fifty scenes, more than a hundred characters are confronted with the things they know, don’t know, want to know, or want to forget. We get a glimpse of their attempts to discover meaning in the moment. In an age of big data and splintered attention spans, Love and Information challenges us to understand what it means to be truly connected with each other.

by Rian Johnson, adapted by Chris White

Brendan - thick as what all - gets a phone call from his ex: Emily. "I screwed up real bad", she says. She rambles: "I did what she said with the brick, I didn't know it was bad, but The Pin's on it now for poor Frisco and they're playing it all on me." Brendan's not looking for a patch up. He just wants to help her deal with ... whatever this is. And then she turns up dead. What's left to do? Get the straight, and break some deserving teeth.
