There is a new immersive realm for the senses online, a virtual playground where those who plug in are coaxed into acting out their darkest fantasies--with no consequences in the "real" world. Or so it seems... until a young female detective begins an investigation to determine if there is a point at which thought or intention may actually constitute a crime within--and outside of--this new frontier.

Winner of the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize, Jennifer Haley's The Nether is a haunting thriller that will make you question when the fantastic becomes too real.

Ever wonder what your life would be like if you'd made one different choice?  An unplanned pregnancy sets off a chain of events in the lives of three people in PILLOW ON THE STAIRS.  What follows creates a web of secrets and denials that binds this trio of ordinary, flawed individuals together for a lifetime. Every decision has lasting consequences in this intimate story about love, loyalty, betrayal, and trust.

Can there be laughter in the healing process? The lives of survivors, perpetrators, and bystanders weave together in a wickedly funny and piercingly insightful one woman show about a community trying to heal after a sexual assault. In Post Traumatic Super Delightful (PTSD), the personal is political, the political is personal. And the person is a clown.

In this all-female play, a woman grows from youth to old age, facing challenges many women face, but never giving up her dream.

"As a member of the League of Professional Theatre Women and Works by Women... and as the playwright of this very woman-centric play... I would love to offer Works by Women half-price tickets. That would be 
$8 regular/$6 seniors."

As she struggles with opposing roles - pirate and princess - her betrothed finds himself falling for a woman he's barely met. Shanties and swordfights frame this theatrical tale of love on the high seas...
