Kathleen Turner in An Act of God

Nov. 28 - Dec. 23, 2017

Starring Kathleen Turner

By David Javerbaum
Directed by David Saint
With Stephen DeRosa and Jim Walton

Following Her recent sold-out Broadway run, God arrives in New Brunswick — and She looks a lot like Kathleen Turner! Called “deliriously funny” by The New York Times, God takes human form in An Act of God and doesn’t hold back about what She’s seen and heard. In this hilarious comedy by Emmy Award-winner David Javerbaum (The Daily Show with Jon Stewart), God, along with Her two archangels (Stephen DeRosa and Jim Walton), answer many of the deepest (and not so deep) questions that have plagued mankind since Creation. Learn More

American Hero

Jan. 30 - Feb. 25, 2018

By Christopher Demos-Brown
Directed by David Saint

An Iraq war hero’s perfect life starts to unravel when a fellow Marine seeking justice shows up threatening to expose a hidden past. From the author of last season’s American Son, this probing drama shines a light on how America honors its veteran soldiers as well as the corrupting effect of awards and commendations, and questions what it truly means to be a hero. American Hero joins American Son and a yet-to-be titled new work to create a trilogy of plays that explore American injustice. American Hero is the recipient of the Steinberg Award Citation from the American Theatre Critics Association.

In true Pygmalion fashion, when a young, new secretary is hired, the two struggle to communicate but come to understand how two strangers at very different places in their lives can unexpectedly and forever influence each other. Based on playwright Joanna McClelland Glass’ real-life experience as Biddle's secretary.
