Zelda and Rachel – each a brilliant scientist – challenge one another’s ideas about sex and gender, power and age, nature and nurture, loss and love. Their competing theories inspire an electrifying line of inquiry that goes to the heart of what it is to be human.

Tickets for THE HOW AND THE WHY go on sale starting January 31st. 

Please review the COVID-19 safety policy before purchasing your tickets (located below). 



We are excited to see you at the theatre. We also know we have a responsibility to our community, so due to the highly transmissible Delta variant, we have made necessary adjustments to our show protocols.  To ensure your safety, and the safety of our staff, artists, volunteers, and the public, the following policies and protocols will be in place for the run of The How and the Why.

  • All patrons will be required to wear a mask when inside of the venue.
  • All patrons will be required to present proof of vaccination for COVID-19 or proof of negative test results, via PCR or Antigen test, no more than 72 hours before arrival to the performance.
  • Masks and hand sanitizer will be available on site.
  • Concessions will be sold. We ask that patrons remain masked indoors when not eating or drinking.

If you are not feeling well or experiencing symptoms, we encourage you to stay home. Please join us for our exciting 19th season when you are feeling better.

THANK YOU for standing with us to care for our community by preventing the spread of Covid-19. We will continue to update our policies as circumstances change. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact our office staff.




We are so excited to embark on a full season of shows! After a difficult year and a half of the pandemic, we are back with an exciting slate of plays that express the joy and challenge of reuniting. Shattering family news, rejection, and an apocalyptic catastrophe are all events that hardly sound like a good opportunity for bonding. But they each contain a seed for renewal, reuniting, and rebirth that we all crave so much. The pandemic continues to be a time of uncertainty. Theatre B artists respond with art and hope (and some jolly fun for the holidays too!).

Will you join us
