Crimes of the Heart by Beth Henley
The three MaGrath sisters are back together in their hometown of Hazelhurst, Mississippi for the first time in a decade. Lenny, the eldest, never left Hazelhurst -- she is the caretaker of the sisters’ cantankerous Old Granddaddy. Meg, the middle sister, left home to pursue stardom as a singer in Los Angeles, but has, so far, only found happiness at the bottom of a bottle. And Babe, the youngest, has just been arrested for the murder of her abusive husband, Zackery Bottrelle. Under the scorching heat of the Mississippi sun, past resentments bubble to the surface and each sister must come to terms with the consequences of her own “crimes of the heart.”

Eurydice by Sarah Ruhl
Sarah Ruhl’s reimagining of the Orpheus myth focuses on its heroine. After dying too young on her wedding day, Eurydice must journey to the underworld where she is reunited with her father and struggles to remember her life up above. Filled with unique contemporary characters and stunning visual effects, this play is a fresh look at a timeless story or love and loss.
“Rhapsodically beautiful. A weird and wonderful new play – an inexpressibly moving theatrical fable about love, loss and the pleasures of pains of memory.” – The New York Times
