Drawn from Shakespeare’s War of the Roses tetralogy, this play follows Margaret d’Anjou from meek princess to fierce warrior, strategist, leader, and finally lone, mad woman. This boldly reframed political history gives focus to women who made great impact, yet held little agency. Margaret provides opportunities for meaty female roles, new female narratives, and a strong feminist perspective while using only Shakespeare’s original text.

Baal is a poet. A murderer. He has an insatiable appetite and drinks too much. Baal likes a boy. Baal is afraid. Written by Bertolt Brecht when he was just 20 years old, Baal is the story of a provocative and daring young artist trapped by his own ambitions, hungry for new experiences, and a never ending desire to conquer it all.

This new investigative theatre piece tells the untold story of gays and lesbians living in Egypt today. Devised by a collective of New York-based Egyptian-American theatre artists, the piece adapts an “interview theatre” model inspired by The Civilians to examine the lives, loves, challenges, and triumphs of being homosexual in one of the world’s largest Muslim countries.
