Out of concern for the health and safety of our community, we made the difficult decision to suspend our production of ACTUALLY, by Anna Ziegler, scheduled to run March 27 – April 19, 2020.
Because this show should not be missed, we are thrilled to offer a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to stream a video of a fully-staged rehearsal performance, available on demand (cost $15) beginning April 3 through April 30, 2020. To access, please click on the image below.
Recommended ages: 14 and up. Mature language and discussion of sexual assault.
"Bold and brilliant. ACTUALLY will likely take its place
as one of the emblematic plays of our time."

Della, a sweet, God-fearing Christian, is also the best baker in North Carolina. Nothing would make Della happier than making a wedding cake for her best friend’s daughter, Jenny. Except that Della’s beloved Jenny is marrying a woman. A deliciously funny, multi-layered play about what divides us and brings us together, and the power of love – and cake.

A trip to her homeland forever changes the life of a young Indian-American woman. On her journey, she unearths family secrets, encounters a prophet, and discovers her voice within a culture of silence. A powerful, transformative story based on actual events.
By Margaret Edson
Directed by Suzan Fete
Mar. 12 - Apr. 4, 2021
A 1999 Pulitzer Prize-winner, WIT examines what makes life truly worth living by exploring humanity’s most unifying experience – mortality. Focusing on the final all-too-human hours of renowned poetry scholar Vivian Bearing, Edson’s powerfully imagined play reminds us that our lives are ours alone to cherish or abandon.
