Upcoming Shows

The Children

 A long-married couple live in a ramshackle cottage near the edge of a nuclear disaster that recalls the 2011 Fukushima catastrophe. Intruding into their somewhat eccentric existence comes Rose, a former co-worker at the power station whose appearance after 30 years is a mystery that will inspire both laughter and an increasing sense of menace. But Rose is on an important mission.
A recent hit on Broadway after successful run at London’s Royal Court, Lucy Kirkwood ’s unique play is a beautifully written puzzle about personal responsibility, guilt, and what today’s elders owe the young. 
 
“…a richly suggestive and beautifully written piece of work…Kirkwood is the most rewarding dramatist of her generation.”  
—The Independent (London)

Feb 13-15 | 8pm Performances | $30/$27 for subscribers Tix: bit.ly/TTHAurora Check out the praise for Emcee Infinite's Poe adaptation of the title piece "Aguirre can make noises no human instrument ought to be able to make. His “P” sounds shoot with the force of pistons or bullets. When he does a record scratching or mouse paws skittering across a wooden floor, your eyes and ears do a double-take, searching for the source of some suddenly piped-in sound effect. " -San Francisco Chronicle Read the full review: http://bit.ly/2sxWllu
