To Kill A Mockingbird  
Will Geer Theatricum Botanicum To Kill A Mockingbird
 
Christopher Sergel’s stage adaptation captures the warmth and poignancy of Harper Lee’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, a compelling and timeless story about the loss of innocence. In a small Southern town during the depression, the idyllic childhood of eight-year old Scout and her brother Jem is changed forever when their lawyer-father defends a poor black man accused of raping a white woman. Through the drama of the trial and its aftermath, the children experience the harsh realities of prejudice that surround them.

Green Grow the Lilacs  
Will Geer Theatricum Botanicum Green Grow the Lilacs
 
Native American playwright Lynn Riggs infused his 1931 hit play with a perfect mix of drama, romance and America’s most popular folk music. The courtship between a rancher and his gal is threatened by a menacing farmhand and turns violent, jeopardizing the young lovers’ future. Filled with vivid characters, colorful language, traditional songs and cowboy ballads, the play that inspired Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Oklahoma! is rarely performed in its original form, yet remains as compelling now as when it first burst onto the American stage.
