Two lost souls catch a glimpse of happiness in the moonlight. But is their newly lit fire strong enough to withstand a lifetime of disappointment and regret? Set in and around a dilapidated Connecticut farmhouse in 1923, this American classic follows Josie Hogan, a boisterous Irish woman with a quick tongue and a tender heart; and Jim Tyrone, a tortured soul haunted by the loss of his mother. Pulitzer Prize winner and Nobel laureate Eugene O'Neill creates a mythic tale of old sins and the power of love. Joseph Fuqua stars as Tyrone, with Granville Van Dusen as Josie's conniving father.

Emmy Award-winning actress Susan Clark stars in this compelling play about respect, rivalry, betrayal and honor. The story follows the rise and fall of a friendship between two women writers: Ruth Steiner, a teacher and respected short-story writer, and her protegee Lisa Morrison. Over the course of six years, Lisa writes a novel based on Ruth's affair with the poet Delmore Schwartz. The play poses the question of whether a person's life events are suitable for another to use in their own creative process. According to the New York Times, "the emotional current" of the play takes on a "sweeping, electric life."

Directed by Scott Schwartz,with Tom Astor, Joseph Fuqua, Julie Hunicutt, Elyse Mirto and Nicholas Podany, Conviction (formerly titled 23.5 Hours) tells the story of charismatic, confident and caring, Tom Hodges, the teacher students adore and parents admire.
