Presents: A Public Reading Of An Unproduced Screenplay About The Death Of Walt Disney
Written by Lucas Hnath

Walt would like to read you a story. It’s a story he wrote about himself, and the empire he made, and the city of the future he’s building that will change everything. It’s about his brother, and it’s about everyone, and how they all love him, and how they’ll all miss him so much when he’s gone. ...Right? Lucas Hnath’s A Public Reading is a darkly comic inversion of the Walt Disney persona, a funny and moving meditation on fame, legacy, and the things, and people, you leave behind.

Presents: GUESS WHO'S COMING TO DINNER
Adapted from the Oscar Winning Film

A progressive white couple's proud liberal sensibilities are put to the test when their daughter brings her black fiance home to meet them in this fresh and relevant stage adaptation of the iconic film Guess Who's Coming to Dinner. Blindsided by their daughter's whirlwind romance and fearful for her future, Matt and Christina Drayton quickly come to realize the difference between supporting a mixed-race couple in your newspaper and welcoming one into your family--especially in 1967. But they're surprised to find they aren't the only ones with concerns about the match, and it's not long before a multi-family clash of racial and generational difference sweeps across the Draytons' idyllic San Francisco terrace. At the end of the day, will the love between young Joanna and John prevail? With humor and insight, Guess Who's Coming To Dinner begins a conversation sure to continue at dinner tables long after the curtain comes down.
