The Syringa Tree

A Drama by Pamela Gien

Playing November 2 – November 12, 2017

Directed by Jim Johnson

Winner of the 2001 Obie Award for Best Play, The Syringa Tree is a personal story of an abiding love between two families—one black, one white—and the two children that are born into their shared household in early 1960s South Africa. With both humor and palpable fear, six-year-old Elizabeth Grace tries to make sense of the chaos, magic and darkness of Africa. At first seen through the eyes of a child, the story of these families’ destinies spans four generations, from early apartheid to the present-day free South Africa.

Visiting Mr. Green

A Drama by Jeff Baron

Playing March 15 – March 25, 2018

Mr. Green, an elderly, retired dry cleaner, wanders into New York traffic and is almost hit by a car driven by Ross Gardiner, a 29-year-old corporate executive. The young man is given a community service of helping the recent widower once a week for six months. What starts as a comedy about two men who do not want to be in the same room together becomes a gripping and moving drama as they get to know each other, come to care about each other, and open old wounds they’ve been hiding and nursing for years.
