Live Entertainment in an Intimate Victorian Theater
“Jack of Hearts”
Jack of Hearts is a revenge play set in a steampunk world of the wastes, a futuristic dystopia that emulates the old west. The action centers around the Heart's Club, a brothel/saloon, and its denizens who find themselves caught up in a conflict between the mace gang, the capital, and the owner, Jack Heart. Themes of love, loyalty, humanity, and truth are tested, broken, and rebuilt.
“The Secret of Sherlock Holmes”
A tribute to the remarkable friendship of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson, "The Secret of Sherlock Holmes" begins with a depiction of their relationship, starting with their meeting in "A Study in Scarlet" and its seeming termination with Holmes's faked death in "The Final Problem", then moves to the emotional consequences of Holmes's deception for both men, and culminates, at last, in the shattering secret of the play's title.
“The Gin Game”
This Pulitzer prize winning play uses a card game as a metaphor for life and living. Weller Martin plays solitaire on the porch of a seedy nursing home, where he meets Fonsia Dorsey, a prim, self righteous lady. Soon they discover their mutual dislike for the home and enjoy gin rummy — so they begin to play and to reveal intimate details of their lives to each other.
Flanagan’s Wake is the hilarious interactive Irish wake that transports you to Graplin, County Sligo, Ireland, where you join the villagers in the telling of tales, singing of songs, and mourn the passing of one of your own: Flanagan.
A Thriller in Two Acts, by Ira Levin
Sidney Bruhl, a once-successful writer of Broadway thrillers, is struggling to overcome a string of failed shows and a shortage of funds. When he receives a script from a student in the seminar he has been teaching at a nearby college — a thriller which Sidney instantly recognizes as a possible Broadway hit — he devises, with his wife's help, a plan to collaborate with the student. The younger man quickly accepts Sidney's offer. Thereafter suspense mounts steadily as the story twists and turns with devilish cunning.
