Two Mile Hollow
By Leah Nanako Winkler
January 18 – February 2, 2019
An unapologetic and savage new comedy
When the Donnellys gather to divide their belongings after the sale of their oceanfront mansion, both metaphorical and literal storms start brewing. As this completely messy Caucasian family comes together with their POC personal assistant, Charlotte, some really, really complicated and totally unique secrets are revealed while white wine spills. Two Mile Hollow explores the age old genre of plays about affluent white families retreating to their waterfront homes to battle it out with brutality, awe and compassion. Only this time, precisely none of the white characters are played by white actors.
“…blistering…unrelentingly hilarious.” – Chicago Tribune
Let the Right One In
By Jack Thorne
Based on the novel by John Ajvide Lindqvist
April 12 – May 4, 2019
The body of a teenager is found, emptied of blood, the murder rumored to be part of a ritual killing. Twelve-year-old Oskar is personally hoping that revenge has come at long last - revenge for the bullying he endures at school, day after day. Eli is the young girl who has just moved in next door. She doesn't go to school and never leaves the house by day. Sensing in each other a kindred spirit, the two become devoted friends. What Oskar doesn't know is that Eli has been a teenager for a very…very long time. Jack Thorne's (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child) visceral adaptation of Let the Right One In is an enchanting, brutal vampire myth and coming-of-age love story, adapted from the best-selling novel and award-winning film.
