Nine by Jane Shepard


By Jane Shepard
Directed by Paul Budraitis

Two women held in a life-threatening situation and the mind games they play to keep one another alive. Held in a room and chained apart, their only currency is words, and balance of power is everything when a single word becomes the hanging point between life and death. A full scope of emotions is played out in their competitions, which are alternately funny, fragile & fierce. It illuminates the strength of the human spirit, and the psychological cost of survival.

Nine is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.

The Long Road by Shelagh Stephenson

The Long Road (U.S. Premiere)

By Shelagh Stephenson
Directed by Zandi Carlson

In the aftermath of Danny’s pointless murder, his family struggles to find meaning and forgiveness. A hearbreaking journey to forgiveness, this topical play digs deeper than the headlines. Stephenson spent many hours talking with victims and perpetrators of violent crime, visiting prisons and collaborating with the Forgiveness Project, a charity working in the fields of reconciliation and restorative justice. The result is an affecting play intent on opening the hearts and minds without ever becoming preachy. (source:
