The Man Who
by Peter Brooks
(Adapted from the book "The Man Who Mistook His Wife For a Hat" by Oliver Sacks)
The characters in “The Man Who“ see the world through different eyes. Some notice only half of their world. While some can see instinctively but not consciously. And to others, everything around them is a dream. In the play, a staff of doctors introduces a number of these unusual patients. But sometimes, doctors can also be peculiar.
Cast (in multiple roles)

On the eve of Ben’s last day, his girlfriend Hannah, his two younger brothers and his daughter meet at his house. Ben’s decision leads to conflicts and disagreements within the family.

Shakespeare’s darkest tale plays out in a seedy punk bar in 1970s London.
Follow Macbeth, an ambitious gang member, on his quest for the leadership of his gang.
After three mysterious groupies prophesy him the crown, the thirst for power leads him into a nightmarish world of evil, deceit, and murder, as one deed sets off a series of bloody crimes.
However, there are still those standing against Macbeth, led by Macduff.
As the tragedy draws to a dramatic and hair-raising close, which side are you on?
The Motherf**ker With The Hat
by Stephen Adly-Guirgis
Struggles with addiction, friendship, love and the challenges of adulthood are at the center of the story. Jackie, a petty drug dealer, is just out of prison and trying to stay clean. He's also still in love with his coke-addicted childhood sweetheart, Veronica. Ralph D. is Jackie's too-smooth, slightly slippery sponsor. He's married to the bitter and disaffected Victoria, who, by the way, has the hots for Jackie. And then there's Julio, Jackie's cousin … a stand-up, "stand by me" kind of guy.
