THE SECRETARIES
November 3 - November 18, 2023

Written by Lisa Kron, Babs Davy, Dominique Dibbell, Peg Healey, Maureen Angelos

Directed by Beck Keller

Patty is thrilled to join the secretarial pool at the Cooney Lumber Mill, but she soon begins to feel that all is not right—the enforced diet of Slim-Fast shakes, the strange clicking language between the girls, the monthly disappearance of a lumberjack. By the time Patty discovers murder is part of these office killers’ skill set, it’s too late to turn back! In the guise of satiric exploitation-horror, The Secretaries takes an unflinching look at the warping cultural expectations of femininity.

"The Secretaries is a sustained, amusing look at the fine line between aggression and assertiveness."

-- The New Yorker

Torch song
February 16 - March 2, 2024

Written by Harvey Fierstein

Directed by Scott Albert Bennett

Co-Produced with Oh, My Stars! Productions

A two-act revival based on the award-winning Torch Song Trilogy – the life of Arnold Beckoff, a torch song-singing, Jewish drag queen living in New York City, is dramatized over the span of the late 1970s and 1980s. Torch Song follows Arnold’s odyssey to find happiness in New York. All he wants is a husband, a child, and a pair of bunny slippers that fit, but a visit from his overbearing mother reminds him that he needs one thing more: respect.

"Torch Song brings laughter and tears simultaneously. It's impossible not to feel electricity in the theater." -- Entertainment Weekly

TWELFTH NIGHT
April 19 - May 4, 2024

Written by William Shakespeare

Directed by Bri Baltes

A classic tale that has been exploring gender lines and bisexuality for centuries, StageQ brings a non-binary perspective to Shakespeare’s classic comedy of mistaken identity. A ship is wrecked on the rocks: Viola is washed ashore but their twin brother Sebastian is lost. Determined to survive on their own, Viola steps out to explore a new land. They are soon caught between a lovelorn duke and lovesick lady. Get ready for twists, turns, and love triangles only The Bard himself can concoct!
