The Scarlet Letter

By Kate Hamill
Inspired by Nathaniel Hawthorne's novel

Original sin. Shame. Redemption. A society reels with fear when a woman’s sexuality is on display. Hawthorne’s masterwork bursts to life in a chilling and timely adaptation. Known for her inventive and explosive take on classics (Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Dracula) Kate Hamill’s “A” examines a community in chaos—not far from our own, mad modern world.

Bhangin' It

A New Musical

By Mike Lew and Rehana Lew Mirza 
Music and Lyrics by Sam Willmott 
Directed by Amy Anders Corcoran
Co-production with La Jolla Playhouse

This brand new feel-good and dance-filled musical is brash, intoxicating, and joyous. Intercollegiate Bhangra, a competitive “dance-off” of traditional Punjabi folk styles, is a high stakes game. Mary, a biracial student, thinks she's got all the right moves. But to teammate Preeti, Mary is just not “Indian enough.” When Mary is abruptly booted off the team, she puts together a team whose only criteria for joining is a desire to dance. With Nationals coming up, can this eclectic, ragtag group whip themselves into shape to take on the competition? Bhangin' It is a celebration of the traditions we inherit from yesterday and those we create for tomorrow.
