The Last Wife

January 17 through February 11, 2018

West Coast Premiere
This contemporary re-imagining of the compelling relationship between Henry VIII and his last wife, Katherine Parr, is a witty and powerful examination of sexual politics and women’s rights. It’s a high stakes game of chess, with Henry’s offspring, Mary, Elizabeth, and Edward as pawns.

“The show is stimulating… Surviving a tyrant was far from her only achievement.” – The Chicago Tribune 

Previews from January  17 through 20, 2018.

Performances are at Cygnet Theatre, 4040 Twiggs Street. Call (619) 337-1525 or visit the Cygnet Theatre website for ticket information.

Cardboard Piano

January 25 through February 25, 2018

Chris, the spirited daughter of an American missionary, falls head-over-heels in love with a local teenage girl in Northern Uganda. Late at night on the eve of the millennium, they secretly meet in a church to exchange vows and plot their escape. But when the civil war outside invades their fragile union, the course of Chris’ life is changed forever. Confronting the religious and cultural roots of intolerance, this modern day parable explores America’s relationship with Africa, and the human capacity for forgiveness.
