Christmas in Babylon
Terry, Denise and daughter Abby McShane are a typical family in North Babylon, Long Island: blue-collar, lower-middle-class, and prone to sarcastic banter as their chief form of communication. Out of the blue, Terry is contacted by his ex-fiancee, Kathleen, a former Babylonian with a booming self-help empire. It's a collision more than 25 years in the making. And the holidays have only just begun… From Wisconsin's own James DeVita comes this World Premiere comedy about two people trying to find a way to forgive each other - and themselves - for the past. Directed by C. Michael Wright and featuring Laura Gray, Mary MacDonald Kerr, Tom Klubertanz, Eva Nimmer & Sara Zientek. Tickets are $30 for preview performances and $40 for regular performances.

Both Megs and Davey survived the Vietnam War, but they're having trouble surviving back home. This April morning, bright and early at 5 a.m., Megs is banging on his old buddy's door announcing it's the start of fishing season. He never suspects Martha, his friend's older sister, will be the one to open the door -- to a myriad of wondrous new possibilities. Stephen Metcalfe's Off-Broadway success is a truthful, solid portrayal of the emotional fallout that lingers long after the war is over. Directed by C.

Major General Benjamin Butler had been a defense attorney in Boston - until the Civil War began. Now he is in command of Fort Monroe, in southern Virginia, and the law of the United States says that the escaped slave who has demanded to see him must be returned to his owner. But this extremely singular individual - one Shepard Mallory - makes quite a powerful case for himself. Richard Strand's splendid play, a battle of wits for the soul of a nation, defies simple characterization - part comedy, part historical drama, part biography, and often all at the same time! This is a Midwest premiere directed by Michael Cotey and featuring Drew Brhel, Rasell Holt, David Sapiro, Chase Stoeger. Tickets range from $15 to $40 in Cabot Theatre.
