PAN by Jeremy Fiebig

Peter, an impish boy who refuses to grow up — and who can fly! — lands in a suburban home looking for his shadow. Once inside, he befriends the children: Wendy, John, and Michael. With help from some magic fairy dust, Peter teaches them to fly before whisking them off for adventures on the island of Neverland: a land inhabited by mermaids, fairies, and, of course, pirates. The enduring story of Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Wouldn’t Grow Up, by JM Barrie premiered in 1904 at the Duke of York’s Theatre in London. In 1911, Barrie adapted and expanded the play into a novel published as Peter and Wendy. An adaptation of JM Barrie’s classic tale by Artistic Director Jeremy Fiebig is a delightful adventure for the whole family.

Pan

By Phillip Massinger

In The Unnatural Combat, Massinger offers a world where there exists a thin line between virtue and vice, and warns us that every evil thing we do makes the next that much easier. At a time when cruelty has become the lingua franca of our political discourse, The Unnatural Combat calls out to us from four centuries ago, begging us to consider whither we may be going.

Unnatural Combat

By John Fletcher

Fletcher’s play is set in London after Katharina’s death, and Petruchio is remarried to Maria. However, he still has nightmares that Katharina will haunt him as a ghost and he resolves to be even firmer with his new wife. While Shakespeare’s Katherina is subdued by her bullying husband Petruchio, Fletcher turns things on their head by letting women tame men. Sit back and enjoy this radical sequel to William Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew.
