Third
By Wendy Wassertein
Directed by Sharon Benge
Nov. 18-22, 2015

His name is Woodson Bull III, but you can call him "Third." And Professor Laurie Jameson is disinclined to like his jockish, jingoistic attitude. He is, as she puts it, "a walking red state." Believing that Third's sophisticated essay on King Lear could not possibly have been written by such a specimen, Professor Jameson reports his plagiarism to the college's Committee of Academic Standards. But is Jameson's accusation justified? Or is she casting Third as the villain in her own struggle with her relationships, her age and the increasingly polarized political environment?

In Love and Warcraft
Directed by TBA
By Madhuri Shekar
Feb. 24-28, 2016

Evie Malone- gamer girl, college senior and confirmed virgin- has it all figured out. Not only does she command a top-ranked guild in Warcraft with her online boyfriend, she also makes a little cash on the side writing love letters for people who've screwed up their relationships. Love is like Warcraft, after all. It's all about strategies, game plans, and not taking stupid risks.

Well, that's what she thinks... until she actually falls for a guy. In Real Life. And no amount of gaming expertise will help her out when she finds herself with a non-virtual, totally real, and incredibly cute boyfriend, who wants more from her than she's willing to give.

The Triumph of Love
By Pierre Carlet de Chamblain de Marivaux
Translated by Stephen Wadsworth
Directed by Steven Young
Apr. 13-17, 2016

Here is a splendid translation of a classic Marivaux comedy about love. Written in 1732, it follows a princess as she adopts the dress and prerogatives of a man, invades the retreat of a rationalist philosopher who hates love, and wins the prince she of her dreams. Gender confusion is pivotal in the hilarious situations that ensue as the emotional stakes rise. The language is magnificent and the characters fascinating including Marivaux's adaptation of the witty idiot Harlequin.
