THE ODYSSEY

The Trojan War is finally over, but the tale of Odysseus has just begun. Journey through treacherous waters with our hero and his crew as they battle cyclopses, sirens, and sea monsters in a desperate attempt to return home. Meanwhile, back in Ithaca, his family struggles to hold the kingdom together in his absence.

By focusing on the story’s most compelling episodes, this adaptation brings Homer’s ancient epic to life with immediacy, humor, and heart. Innovative theatrical storytelling keeps the play moving without major set changes.

Alice in wonderland

Bored with all the structure in her life, Alice does what any of us would do: She follows a rabbit down an elevator shaft to a world where nothing makes sense. But can she hang on to her own identity as she grows and shrinks, argues with birds, swims in a sea of her own tears, and gets put on trial by a deck of playing cards? 

With so many play versions of the Alice stories in circulation, Andrew Biliter’s stands out from the pack by splitting the part of Alice in three—adding impact to the many passages in Carroll’s original where Alice wonders aloud if she is still herself.

A Midsummer night's dream

Helena loves Demetrius; but Demetrius loves Hermia; and Hermia only has eyes for Lysander. It’s a messy enough love triangle, but it gets a whole lot thornier when these mortal lovers spend a night lost in the forest under the magical influence of the fairy court. Confusion, betrayal, and a hilarity ensue—and that’s not even counting the bumbling troupe of amateur actors. 

Enjoy the story of A Midsummer Night's Dream as never before in this skillful 70-minute adaptation. Playwright Andrew Biliter brings the language of Shakespeare into the present day while preserving the character, humor, and meter of the original text.

Much ado about nothing

When Don Pedro and his officers come to stay at Leonato’s house in Messina, there’s romance and mischief in the air: masked balls, wooing by proxy, and a team effort to turn old rivals Beatrice and Benedick into true lovers. But the villain Don John is up to more than mere mischief, and his “prank” could destroy lives and reputations. Better call the neighborhood watch!

Enjoy the story of Much Ado as never before in this skillful 70-minute adaptation. Playwright Andrew Biliter brings the language of Shakespeare into the present day while preserving the character, humor, and meter of the original text.

Frankenstein

When a team of arctic voyagers rescue a ragged, half-starved man wandering the ice floes, they bear witness to a horrific tale of human prejudice and science gone awry. Enter the life of Victor Frankenstein, a promising young scientist whose reckless experiments set in motion a terrible series of events—for Victor, his family, and his hideous, unloved creation. 

Forget the campy Hollywood version: this uncommonly faithful adaptation resurrects the fragile innocence and lurking terror of Mary Shelley’s original novel, preserving much of her prose as well.
