Summary:

Eighteen-year-old Dontrell Jones the Third decides that it is his duty and destiny to venture into the Atlantic Ocean in search of an ancestor lost during the Middle Passage. But his family is not at all ready to abandon its prized son to the waters of a mysterious and haunting past. Blending poetry, humor, wordplay, and ritual, Dontrell, Who Kissed the Sea is a present-day hero’s quest exploring the lengths and depths we must go to redeem history’s wrongs. – Concord Theatricals

“Nathan Alan Davis’s script is sunny and lovable, despite its inexorable pull from present-day Baltimore toward the slave trade’s notorious Middle Passage.” – The Washington Post

“This fable about a young Black man’s search for an ancestor who leapt off a slave ship as it crossed the Atlantic weaves storytelling, music, dance, and ritual into a fantastical tapestry […] the result is thrilling.” – Los Angeles Post

“[T]his play’s greatness doesn’t really come from the plot, though the plot’s water-tightness and inevitability show playwright Nathan Alan Davis’ incredible skill. The characters and poetically transfixing language are the real stars.” – DC Theatre Scene

“Dontrell, Who Kissed the Sea” is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc. www.concordtheatricals.com

Summary:

Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 case that legalized abortion, is still fiercely debated over forty years later. In this incisive play, acclaimed writer Lisa Loomer cuts through the headlines and rhetoric to reveal the divergent personal journeys of lawyer Sarah Weddington and plaintiff Norma McCorvey (“Jane Roe”) in the years following the fateful decision. In turns shocking, humorous, and poignant, ROE reflects the polarization in America today while illuminating the heart and passion each side has for its cause. –Dramatist Play Service

“This is a big play with big ideas…a rousing entertainment…ROE is not a screed for or against abortion…Rather, Loomer’s main theme is the process by which everyday people get swept up in the big currents of history, often with a random dose of chance…Loomer finds the humanity in all her characters. In the end, she seems to suggest that, polarized as we are, if we’d open our hearts and minds a bit, maybe we could find a little compassion for each other.” —Mail Tribune (Medford, OR). ”

“[ROE is] a useful primer—embroidered by the emotional, religious and political motivations of its adherents and opponents—on one of the most durably contentious subjects of our time. With abundant care, the playwright refracts the complexity of abortion rights through the personal prisms of two emblematic real-life characters…[an] admirably probing play…” —Washington Post.

Summary:

It’s the tail end of the big, bad 1980s in Hollywood, and the party has been raging hard. Aqua Net, Lycra, lace, and liquor flow freely at one of the Sunset Strips last legendary venues, a place where sex machine Stacee Jaxx takes the stage and scantily clad groupies line up to turn their fantasies into reality. Amidst the madness, aspiring rock star (and resident toilet cleaner) Drew longs to take the stage as the next big thing (and longs for small-town girl Sherri, fresh off the bus from Kansas with stars in her eyes). But the rock ‘n’ roll fairy tale is about to end when German developers sweep into town with plans to turn the fabled Strip into just another capitalist strip mall. Can Drew, Sherri and the gang save the strip – and themselves – before it’s too late? Only the music of hit bands Styx, Journey, Bon Jovi, Whitesnake and more hold the answer. – Concord Theatricals

“As the show opens with blinding lights, shredding guitars and hammer-handed drumming, even nonbelievers may start inhaling the Aqua Net and embracing their inner rocker.” – Variety

“A seriously silly, absurdly enjoyable arena-rock musical… the performances blend sincere conviction and knowing parody. I never would have guessed that wine coolers could age this well!” – New York Times

ROCK OF AGES is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals. www.concordtheatricals.com
