The 2017 School Tour of IN THE GARDEN OF RIKKI TIKKI TAVI will hit the road in September, making a stop at our mainstage for two special performances in October. When Rikki Tikki Tavi washes up in a pristine garden, Darzee, the sassy tailor bird, is not amused and refuses to share. Darzee and her friend, Chuchu, pull out the stops attempting to run off the pesky mongoose. But watch out for Nag, the cobra! The other animals will have to band together when Nag sets his sights on Rikki! This hilarious adaptation of the Kipling classic offers a poignant message about sharing and collaboration, and encourages us all to acknowledge the power of “we” instead of “me.”

A Tampa Bay Area Premiere March 7 – April 1, 2018 WE THE PEOPLE…DEFY OUR OWN MORTALITY It’s the age of artificial intelligence. Eighty-five-year-old Marjorie — a jumble of disparate, fading memories — has a handsome new companion who’s programmed to feed the story of her life back to her. What would we remember, and what would we forget, if given the chance? In this richly spare, wondrous new play, Jordan Harrison explores the mysteries of human identity and the limits — if any — of what technology can replace. “…keeps developing in your head, like a photographic negative, long after you have seen it….” –The New York Times “clever in conceit, alive with humor, surprising in its turns, and terribly haunting by the time the lights go out.” – The New Yorker
