In his powerful, poignant, and often hilarious 1999 memory play, screenwriter/playwright/director Kenneth Lonergan examines a painful chapter from his family’s then-recent past, framed within a harrowingly honest group portrait — his grandmother Gladys’ slow, inexorable decline into dementia. The Waverly Gallery explores her fight to retain her independence and the subsequent toll her decline exacts on her family, particularly her grandson.
Performance Dates: September 16-October 1, 2022
Maytag Virgin by Audrey Cefaly, directed by Nancy Curran Willis. follows Alabama School teacher Lizzy Nash and her new neighbor, Jack Key, over the year following the tragic death of Lizzy's husband. The play explores the ideas of inertia and self-enlightenment, and the bridge between the two.
""Maytag Virgin is a witty and earnest meditation on how people connect even when they feel they're not ready, and what it is to move on while honoring and remembering the things, and people, who came before." - DC Theatre Scene

Obie Award-winning playwright, Young Jean Lee, takes a hilariously ruthless look at the classic American father-son drama. It’s Christmas Eve, and Ed and his three adult sons come together at their Dad's mid-western home to celebrate Christmas, where they enjoy cheerful trash-talking, juvenile pranks, matching pajamas and takeout Chinese. Their festivities are abruptly interrupted when forced to confront questions that challenge their individual belief systems. When identity matters and privilege is problematic, what is the value of being a straight white man?
In collaboration with The Lizard Lounge.
