JULY 16-20:   STONES IN HIS POCKETS by Marie Jones has the unique distinction of being an Irish play that’s been a smash hit in Dublin, Edinburgh, Belfast, and the West End of London, all in a relatively short period of time — not an easy feat to accomplish. It’s a sad,hilarious, and irresistable tale about the filming of a Hollywood epic in rural Ireland. Two actors play 13 roles between them, with each new character being more real and excruciatingly funny than the next.

JULY 23-27:   BURN THIS is playwright Lanford Wilson at his best. It is at its heart a love story, but getting there is all the fun. A truly unique blend of characters — a dancer, a gay friend, a straightlaced lover out of his depth, and a literally explosive brother all combine in a powerhouse play that knocked Broadway on its behind. Often called the “play that made John Malkovitch a star”, it is not to be missed.
