HANDLE WITH CARE
by Jason Odell Williams
WEST COAST PREMIERE!
Magic can happen in the unlikeliest places ─ like Christmas Eve in a seedy motel, where fate and bizarre circumstances bring together a young Israeli woman who has little command of English, and a young American man with little command of romance. Is their love an accident? Pure coincidence? Or is it destiny that’s been generations in the making? It’s a wonderful new play about love, communication, fate, and the importance of GPS-enabled tracking devices.
"Filled with laughter, tears, and entertainment ... snappy dialogue and plenty of heart." – Theatrescene
“Mr. Williams has achieved something special: He has written a Jewish Christmas story." – The New York Times

THE ROAD TO APPOMATTOX
by Catherine Bush
WEST COAST PREMIERE!
One hundred fifty years later, who knew that the final actions of General Robert E. Lee during the Civil War could relate to the feelings of a modern-day couple facing their own challenges? Lee's final retreat is brilliantly woven together with the parallel story of a present-day couple following his trail. Both parties, past and present, have their own important decisions to make that will determine forever the future of a general, a marriage, an army, and a nation.
“A thoroughly moving drama… absolute artistry." – Bristol Herald Courier
“Highly entertaining!” – Washington County News
