THE ROOMMATE by Jen Silverman (presented by Renaissance Theaterworks)
Sharon has been respectable her whole life. Now in her mid-fifties and recently divorced, she needs a roommate to share her Iowa home. Robyn, also in her mid-fifties, needs a place to hide and a chance to start over. But as Sharon begins to uncover Robyn’s secrets, she realizes her own deep-seated desire to transform her life completely. A dark comedy about what it takes to reroute your life - and what happens when the wheels come off.
Winnie’s buoyant optimism shields her from the harsh glare of the inevitable in Beckett’s unforgettable masterpiece of modern theater. Often referred to as “the Hamlet for actresses,” Winnie is a mountain of a role, physically and emotionally. A summit part for Milwaukee’s veteran actor, Laura Gordon. “HAPPY DAYS remains an absurdly funny and boundlessly compassionate portrait of the human spirit.” - New York Times
ACTUALLY by Anna Ziegler (presented by Renaissance Theaterworks)
Tom and Amber are college freshmen at Princeton. They are overwhelmed, overstimulated, under slept, surrounded by strangers, full of tension, uncertainty, and alcohol. What could possibly go wrong? ACTUALLY, is a smart, profoundly painful exploration of the culture of sexual consent. A perfectly complex tale for our #MeToo Age. “ACTUALLY effectively questions a lot of dangerous lessons that young adults absorb about body image, sex, drinking, consent and responsibility, even in the ranks of higher education.” - The Washington Post
