Here are the plays, their descriptions, performance dates and times:
Barbara Field’s The Book of Vashti March 2 – March 6 The queen has refused the king! A young upstart arrives in the palace to take her place.

Jessica Fechtor’s Book of Hours March 9 – March 13 In best-selling author Jessica Fechtor’s new play Book of Hours, two very different couples reveal themselves to one another in this multi-layered meditation on loss, grief, love and living.
