“I will say that meeting him was like walking out of a dark wood[…] it was like emerging from the cold into the sun…”
A Bed & Breakfast in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, decked out for the holidays. An eccentric innkeeper with a penchant for miniatures, doilies and dolls. A young couple struggling to reconnect. A sublimely odd, yet somehow familiar, cast of characters. But who’s John? Subtle and moving, Pultizer Prize-winning playwright Annie Baker uses her trademark humor to unspool a delicate, richly-detailed story that urges us to seek meaning in the quotidian and the mysterious.
- Teenage Dick by Mike Lew
Artist Repertory Theatre
January 6, 2019 – February 3, 2019
Tue - Sat at 7:30pm | Sun at 2pm & 7:30pm
High school is hard enough, but when you have a power hungry 17-year-old threatening to overthrow anyone in his way to becoming junior class President, it can be downright murderous. Richard is the king of insults and after alienating the only friend he has, he relies on himself to snatch the crown while securing the heart of the ex-girlfriend of the popular high school quarterback. As Richard struggles to keep all of his plots from going awry, he gains an ally in the most unlikeliest of suspects. Touchingly hilarious, Teenage Dick is the modern comedic re-telling of Shakespeare’s Richard III, and ponders if it is better to be loved or feared.

Crossing Mnisose (pronounced “mini-so-shay”) tells the story of one of America's first feminists, Sacajawea, and draws a line from a completely original view of Lewis and Clark to the present day, as descendants of the Dakota and Lakota Nations continue their fight for the Mnisose (or what Europeans named the “Missouri River”) and the lands that contain the burials of their ancestors. From celebrated playwright, activist and attorney Mary Kathryn Nagle (Cherokee Nation), whose Manahatta captivated audiences at Oregon Shakespeare Festival.
