Newport

Directed by Ed Cohen

Cast: Rory Sheridan as Katurian, Michael Monks as Michal, Joe Hornbaker as Tupolski & Nathan Tubbs as Ariel

In an unnamed totalitarian state, a writer whose macabre fairy tales are eerily similar to a series of child murders is interrogated by government officials. The unsettling and thoroughly startling story that follows is an unblinking examination of the power, nature, and purpose of art. ADVISORY:  This play contains graphically violent content.

Whether sung or heard, songs mark our milestones and remind us of those special moments in our lives. Come hear stories about the songs that made a difference… for better or for worse!
