    ABOUT THE PLAY: Leni Riefenstahl is a dancer, actor, and perhaps Germany’s most influential director. Joseph Goebbels is the charmingly brutal Minister of Propaganda, intent on consolidating power for the Nazi Party. When the ambitious minister hires the even more ambitious filmmaker to shoot the greatest propaganda movie ever made, it will pull two brilliant and dangerous minds into one of most productive, powerful, and deeply antagonistic relationships in the history of film. Leni & Joseph explores the wild true story of two giants as they flirt, fight, and shape the lives and deaths of millions.

Through the quantum vagaries of time, Allie and Vesta become visible to one another, past and future co-existing in a small parlor room.

    ABOUT THE PLAY: Alexa, a home shopping host, is at the top of her field and ready to take the leap into network broadcasting. After routine wisdom teeth extraction, she wakes up deaf. (It can happen—inspired by a true story.) Now Alexa faces many choices which will change—or end—her life. Does she get a cochlear implant when she’s just reacted so drastically to surgery? Would it be better to learn American Sign Language? Can she continue her career in television or should she find another path?

    Everyone has a different opinion from her brother, who wants the implant right away for her network audition, to her more cautious husband. Alexa must sort through everyone’s beliefs, including her own, as a speech pathologist leads her to see that silence is a wonderful way to learn to communicate.

    ABOUT THE PLAYWRIGHT: Brooke Downs has an MFA in Creative Writing from Brigham Young University. She now teaches a variety of writing and literature courses there.

    WE THE PEOPLE…WILL NOT HAVE OUR DREAMS DEFERRED

    Set on Chicago’s South Side, the plot revolves around the divergent dreams and conflicts within three generations of the Younger family: son, Walter Lee; his wife, Ruth; his sister, Beneatha; his son, Travis; and matriarch, Lena. When her deceased husband’s insurance money comes through, Mama Lena dreams of moving to a new home and a better neighborhood in Chicago. Walter Lee, a chauffeur, has other plans: buying a liquor store and being his own man. Beneatha dreams of medical school. The tensions and prejudice they face form this seminal American drama. The Younger family’s heroic struggle to retain dignity in a harsh and changing world is a searing and timeless document of hope and inspiration.
