Making God Laugh
The play follows one typical American family over the course of thirty years❜ worth of holidays. Starting in 1980, Ruthie and Bill❜s grown children — a priest, an aspiring actress, and a former football star — all return home, where we learn of their plans and dreams as they embark on their adult lives. The empty-nester parents contend with their own changes, too, as old family rituals are trotted out and ancient tensions flare up. As time passes, the family discovers that, despite what we may have in mind, we often arrive at unexpected destinations. As Woody Allen once said, ❝If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans…❞

Death of a Salesman
A tired traveling salesman with an outdated understanding of success, Willy Loman has lost control of his career on the road and his life at home.

Moving and meaningful, Arthur Miller❜s masterwork exploration of love and betrayal in life and business remains as relevant and relatable today as when it first hit the Broadway stage more than seven decades ago.
