Disinherit the Wind Mar 1 - Apr 9, 2017  
The Complex Disinherit the Wind
 
In this riveting courtroom drama, a renowned neurobiologist sues a prominent university for the right to teach theories of evolution that challenge the scientific status quo. His argument: neo-Darwinian materialist thought, like Creationism — the biblical orthodoxy it once replaced — has itself become a kind of religion: just as rigid, just as resistant to change. Might further scientific inquiry, in light of new evidence, yield different and surprising answers? Should recent discoveries, including the extensive range of highly developed fossils that suddenly appear during the Cambrian period and our modern understanding of DNA, require a reevaluation of the scientific thought behind the Darwinian theory of evolution? An inspiring and uplifting play of ideas that asks, “Are we really no more than the sum of our physical parts?”

Laughter on the 23rd Floor Mar 3 - Apr 1, 2017  
Little Fish Theatre Laughter on the 23rd Floor
 
Little Fish Theatre presents Neil Simon’s LAUGHTER ON THE 23RD FLOOR, directed by Holly Baker-Kreiswirth. Playwright Neil Simon got his first big break in the early 1950s as a staff writer on Sid Caesar's celebrated television series “Your Show of Shows.” Laughter on the 23rd Floor takes a fictionalized look at the backstage bedlam that went into producing one of the precedent-setting shows of television's golden age. Max Prince is the star of “The Max Prince Show,” a hugely popular variety series that is a major hit on the coasts. But the network insists that it's too sophisticated for the Midwest and urges Prince to dumb down his act. Between the tensions of producing and being pestered about his ratings, Prince is beginning to unravel. His last line of defense is his writing staff, which spends its days coming up with sketches for the show while hurling hilarious barbs at each other and anyone else within earshot.

MARRIED PEOPLE: A COMEDY also puts the institution of marriage and the challenge of parenthood under a microscope, revealing the truth about how we are all navigating the rough waters of twenty-first century relationships. Friendships are tested and long held beliefs are upended. The world is changing but love, relationships, acceptance and most of all humor are a constant in this funny, touching and poignant world premiere play.
