Constantly getting into trouble with their owner, Roger, by their desire to break his rules, the two dogs decide to run away and seek fame and fortune on their own.

"The Last Days of Judas Iscariot"
By Stephen Adly Gurgis
Directed by Bill Gillett

Set in a time-bending, darkly comic world between heaven and hell, “The Last Days of Judas Iscariot” reexamines the plight and fate of the New Testament's most infamous and unexplained sinner. Filled with the poetry of “lowdown street talk, …” this play “presents dilemmas of ancient Galilee in terms winningly accessible to the twenty-first century.”

“Stephen Adly Gurigis has written a real jaw-dropper … expressionistic fantasy … raw language and flamboyantly street-savvy characters … his imagination is dazzling and his command of language downright thrilling.” - Variety

“… one of the most passionate and powerful young playwrights to have come down the theatrical runway … a must for anyone interested in work of thoughtful and original playwrights.” - CutainUp

"Inherit the Wind"
By Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee
Directed by Emily Hall

One of the most moving and meaningful plays in American theatre!

A gripping courtroom drama – The accused was a slight, frightened man who had deliberately broken the law. His trial was a Roman circus. The chief gladiators were the two great legal giants of the century. Like two bull elephants locked in mortal combat, they bellowed and roared at one another. The spectators sat uneasily in the sweltering heat with murder in their hearts, barely able to restrain themselves … At stake was the freedom of every American.

“Inherit the Wind,” inspired by the Scopes trial of 1925, creates a fictional account surrounding a trial that challenged public teachings and religion.
