In the Body of the World
by Eve Ensler

In May 2010, while helping rape victims in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Eve Ensler received a life-threatening diagnosis: She had uterine cancer. Told with her signature brand of humor, Ensler’s journey through her illness uncovers connections between her body and the earth, as well as the transformative and transcendent potential of illness itself.

Melinda López

MALA is a darkly funny tale about what it means to put our loved ones first, right to the very end, and what happens when we strive to be good but don’t always succeed. It is a comical and brutally honest look at family dynamics, including stubborn parents and unequipped children, and explores the unsentimental poetry of everyday life. Mala careens from comedy to deep pathos, while having the toughest conversation about the most common of events - the end of life.

by Charlayne Woodard

This play spins the tale of the playwright’s real-life remembrance of her brain damaged aunt, Neat, and the profound change she brought to Charlayne’s life. Neat, with her enormous love, energy, simplicity and magnificent clarity, teaches the young Charlayne what it is to cherish life. A magical, compelling, personal portrait of a young woman’s coming of age, NEAT is the story of an urban African-American girl bursting into adulthood, experiencing first love, and embracing both black-pride and feminism.

Apples in Winter
by Jennifer Fawcett

Twenty-two years ago, Miriam’s son, Robert, committed a horrible crime while in the grips of withdrawal. Robert was caught, tried, and convicted of first-degree murder and has been sitting on death row ever since. In seven hours the state will execute him. As is the tradition, Robert is granted a last meal. His request: a slice of his mother’s apple pie. This is a play about monsters and the mothers of monsters. And about how we care for each other. And about how to make a really good apple pie.
