Part of our Incubator Series, Theatre B will be launching a new work by “B favorite” playwright David MacGregor, writer of Vino Veritas. Scrooge MacBeth, or “A Shakespearean Christmas" takes the meaning of “the show must go on” to a whole new level. When only four actors are left standing after an outbreak of food poisoning, they must entertain an expectant audience in order to save their financially imperiled theatre. Theatre B ensemble members will work directly with Mr. MacGregor to develop the script through workshops and public readings before its World Premiere.

An accident prone dare devil and a corrosive masochist navigate friendship, love and the squishy parts that lie in between. Eight year-olds Doug and Kayleen meet in a school nurse's office, beginning a lifelong intimacy which is revealed through the physical and emotional injuries they sustain over 30 years. Gruesome Playground Injuries tells a different kind of love story through sharp humor and even sharper insights into the human condition.

This wickedly funny and fiercely provocative play about race, real estate, and the volatile values of each is inspired by Lorraine Hansberry’s A Raisin in the Sun. Act One takes place in 1959 as nervous community leaders anxiously try to stop the sale of a home to a black family. Act Two is set in the same house fifty years later, as the now predominantly African-American neighborhood battles to hold its ground in the face of gentrification. 2012 Tony Award winner for best play.
