Edgar and Vinny are not racist. In fact, Edgar maintains a blog condemning American Imperialism, and Vinny is three quarters into a Ph.D. in Black Studies. When a young Filipina woman named Asuncion becomes their new roommate, the boys have a perfect opportunity to prove how open minded they really are. Jesse Eisenberg's hilarious and heart-breaking play explores the complicated ways we exploit culture and politics for our own needs.

Claire has a rare form of psychogenic amnesia that erases her memory whenever she goes to sleep. There’s her chipper husband, her pot smoking son, her mother - a recent stroke victim whose speech has been reduced to utter gibberish, and a limping, lisping, half-blind, half-deaf man in a ski mask who pops out from under her bed and claims to be her brother. Hailed by the New York Times as a, “wisecracking, self-conscious dysfunctional family comedy…”, this poignant and brutal comedy traces one woman's attempt to regain her memory while surrounded by a curio-cabinet of alarmingly bizarre characters.

Pittsburgh, 1948. Following the untimely death of Floyd “Schoolboy” Barton, a local blues guitarist on the edge of stardom, friends gather to mourn and grapple with his legacy. The fifth chapter in August Wilson’s epic Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning American Century Cycle, Seven Guitars strikes moving chords of the African American experience in the 20th century: faith, artistry, humor, oppression, brutality, and love.
