Part farce, part love story, Fernando tells a tale of passion and intrigue in the Madrid art world.  Love, Art, Sex and Death.


GOLIATH by Karen Hartman

Directed by Marya Mazor

In the contemporary Middle East, who is David and who is Goliath?

A single tense day during the 2005 Israeli pullout from Gaza begs the question.


World Premiere


Directed by Bjorn Johnson

Directed by Neil LaBute

Directed by Randee Trabitz
