A rare combination of unprecedented originality and blinding talent, THE DROWSY CHAPERONE boldly addresses a great unspoken desire in all of our hearts: to be entertained.

Directed by Scott Schwartz,with Tom Astor, Joseph Fuqua, Julie Hunicutt and Elyse Mirto, Conviction (formerly titled 23.5 Hours) tells the story of charismatic, confident and caring, Tom Hodges, the teacher students adore and parents admire. But when a student accuses Tom of crossing a line, his friends and family can’t help but question his actions and relationships become splintered. This delicately balanced, beautifully nuanced new drama digs deep beneath the surface of a happy suburban existence to explore the damage done when seeds of mistrust are planted. This drama enthralled audiences in our Plays-in-Progress program and we are thrilled to present the World Premiere in association with Dead Posh Productions, London and Bay Street Theatre.
2 Pianos 4 Hands

Winner of the Dora Award (Canada’s Tony), this delightful comedy has played in more than 200 cities! Two actors, two pianos and a multitude of characters grace the stage as fifteen years of piano playing unfolds in all its awful and hilarious glory -- crazy instructors, obsessed parents, torturous recitals, and more. From classical to pop to jazz, the actors/pianists portray a dazzling range of characters embellished with a show of piano wizardry featuring music which includes Bach, Beethoven and Jerry Lee Lewis. “These funny, funny actors, fine natural comedians, are clever, deft and dazzlingly amusing…triumphant!” ~ New York Post.
