COMING NEXT SEASON
By Thomas Bradshaw | Directed by Jasson Minadakis
An explosive world-premiere commission by American playwright Thomas Bradshaw, Thomas and Sally gets up close and personal with our country's first prominent mixed-race family: Thomas Jefferson and his African American slave, Sally Hemings. Bradshaw's satiric comedy takes us behind the scenes - and into the beds - of history, for a clear-eyed look at sex, power and identity, and how the nation’s beginnings continue to influence what it’s become.
Adapted by Lee Hall | Based on the screenplay by Marc Norman & Tom Stoppard | Directed by Jasson Minadakis

The family soon realizes that this companion offers more than mere palliation, including the chance to rewrite rewrite Marjorie's life for her - without its most painful events.

By Young Jean Lee
Playwright Young Jean Lee delivers an incisively observed portrait of a subculture in crisis: the upper-middle-class suburban white male, as represented by brothers Jake, Drew, and Matt Norton, and their father, Ed. It's Christmas, and the boys have gathered with Dad to celebrate the holiday--but beneath the surface, tensions roil, as the men struggle to find their footing in a postmodern world where their privilege is the problem. Straight White Men is a tender, triumphant, funny, and disturbing examination of America's newest minority.
