  • An Act of God

    Following His recent sold-out Broadway run, God arrives in New Brunswick! Called “deliriously funny” by The New York Times, God takes human form in "An Act of God" and doesn’t hold back about what He’s seen and heard. In this hilarious comedy by Emmy Award-winner David Javerbaum ("The Daily Show with Jon Stewart"), God, along with his two archangels, answer many of the deepest (and not so deep) questions that have plagued mankind since Creation.

  • American Hero

    An Iraq war hero’s perfect life starts to unravel when a fellow soldier seeking justice shows up threatening to expose a hidden past. From Christopher Demos-Brown, 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.

  • Trying

    Internationally known Frances Biddle, Chief Judge of the Nuremberg trials, fierce opponent of the Japanese internment camps during World War II, and Attorney General under President Franklin D. Roosevelt, is 81 years old, elegant, sharply cantankerous, and trying to put his life in order. 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. Learn More

When he realizes that Rick is socially inept and will overstay his welcome with a vengeance, Willum must put together an outrageous plan to rid himself of this wacky GI who came to dinner.
