- An Iliad, opened December 21, â€śFirst sung around a campfire 2,800 years ago,Â The IliadÂ remains a soaring ode about humanityâ€™s seemingly timeless attraction to violence and destruction.

An intimate and immediate look at rage, grief, and the heroism and horror of a seemingly endless war.â€ť (Studio Theater)

- The Motherfucker with the Hat opens January 30, “Jackie, out on parole and newly sober, is determined to start anew with his childhood sweetheart Veronica, but her unrelenting coke addiction, his slick-talking AA sponsor, and the discovery of another manâ€™s hat in his living room all threaten to derail Jackieâ€™s tenuous progress. With passion, profanity, and genuine vulnerability, Jackie and Veronica untangle their decades of codependence as they wrestle with the painful limitations of trust, desire, and rehabilitation.” (Studio Theater)

- Boged (Traitor): An Enemy Of The People, opens January 12 and runs through February 3. â€śA sudden chemical leak in an Israeli industrial park endangers the regionâ€™s water supply. The mayor is quick to cover up the scandal, but his brother fights to expose the truth. The family feud quickly turns into a political war with major environmental repercussions.Â Emerging from Israelâ€™s social justice movement of the past year, this timely adaptation of Ibsenâ€™s play is the brain child of the Israeli playwright and adapter of Ghassan Kanafani’sÂ Return to Haifa.
