• Little Erik
    Written & directed by Mark Jackson

    A contemporary adaptation of Henrik Ibsen's Little Eyolf.

    What happens after the unthinkable occurs? A family searches for meaning and connection after the tragic death of their young child. Freely adapted from Ibsen’s Little Eyolf, this new play from Bay Area auteur Mark Jackson is a dramatically charged, volatile exploration of personal responsibility, grief, guilt, and the nature of desire. It’s guaranteed to spur conversation and debate. For mature audiences.

    Running Time: Approximately 80 minutes with no intermission.

    “Mark Jackson has made his name as a first-class theatrical provocateur.” 
    San Jose Mercury News

  • The How and the Why
    by Sarah Treem 
    directed by Joy Carlin

    More than science is at stake when two women of different generations clash over what it means to be female. On the eve of a prestigious conference, an up-andcoming evolutionary biologist wrestles for the truth with an established leader in the field. As the women thrash out their views, they struggle to find the middle ground between research and relationships. This intimate and keenly perceptive play by Sarah Treem (Netflix’s House of Cards and HBO’s In Treatment) explores evolution and emotion, and the difficult choices faced by women of every generation. 

    “…a smart , densely textured work about men and women, love and conflict, genes and destiny.” ~ The New York Times
