The four adult Cotter siblings have gathered at the family summer cottage on Lake Michigan two years after their father’s death to scatter his ashes from atop his favorite sand dune. During a wet, mosquito-ridden Fourth of July weekend at a childhood getaway that has wildly divergent implications for each of them, these estranged siblings, along with their assorted spouses and companions, attempt to cobble together the elusive and contradictory memories of growing up with (and without) their difficult patriarch. As they struggle to come to terms with their past and present lives, they gain insights about themselves, their father, and each other. Flung is a heart-warming comedy-drama about family, fireworks, and finally growing up.

Note: the show includes some adult language (an f-bomb and a racial slur) and some adult situations (characters smoking cigarettes and marijuana).

Tickets are on sale now.

Welcome to Almost, Maine, a place that’s so far north, it’s almost not in the United States. It’s almost in Canada. And it’s not quite a town, because its residents never got around to getting organized. So it almost doesn’t exist. One cold, clear, winter night, as the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, the residents of Almost, Maine, find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and hilarious ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend—almost—in this delightful midwinter night’s dream.

Red Herring

by Michael Hollinger

FRI 02/09 7:30, SAT 02/10 3:00, SUN 02/11 2:00, THU 02/15 7:30, FRI 02/16 7:30, SAT 02/17 3:00, SUN 02/18 2:00

Three love stories, a murder mystery, and a nuclear espionage plot converge in this noir comedy about marriage and other explosive devices. It’s 1952: America’s on the verge of the H-bomb, Dwight Eisenhower’s on the campaign trail, and I Love Lucy’s on Monday nights. Meanwhile, Senator Joe McCarthy’s daughter just got engaged to a Soviet spy, and Boston detective Maggie Pelletier has to find out who dumped the dead guy in the Harbor—or else lose out on a honeymoon in Havana. A blunt-nosed, sharp-eyed look at love and tying (and untying, and retying) the knot.

Tickets go on sale on Monday, January 1.

Winner of the 1949 Tony Award® for Best Play and the 1949 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. The story revolves around the last days of Willy Loman, a failing salesman, who cannot understand how he failed to win success and happiness. Through a series of tragic soul-searching revelations of the life he has lived with his wife, his sons, and his business associates, we discover how his quest for the “American Dream” kept him blind to the people who truly loved him. A thrilling work of deep and revealing beauty that remains one of the most profound classic dramas of the American theatre.
