In the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe, Theatre B takes on this 1993 prize-winning drama exploring the boundaries of individual freedom and religious activism. Keely, a victim of rape, and Du, an abortion opponent assigned as her caregiver, are confined together until viability. Can small acts of kindness and moments of recognition help them transcend ideology and reach understanding?

AN ACT OF GOD

BY DAVID JAVERBAUM

November 25 – December 17, 2022
SUNDAY MATINÉE Dec. 4 and 11
DIRECTOR Scott Ecker
ASL December 10 – Audio Description December 11

In An Act of God, the deepest questions troubling humankind since creation will be answered at last, when we get a visit from the universe’s greatest comedian: God. After millennia of human meddling, mythology, and misinterpretation, she wants to clarify a few things. This rewrite of the Ten Commandments is no mere spoof of Bible stories, but an opportunity to ask some challenging theological questions. In typical Theatre B fashion, An Act of God invites the audience to ponder important life lessons, even while being tickled giddy.

God – Pam Strait*

Michael – Aimee Klein

Gabriel – Ayden Smith

SMALL MOUTH SOUNDS

BY BESS WOHL

April 28 – May 20, 2023
SUNDAY MATINÉE May 7 & 14
DIRECTOR Crystal Cossette Knight
ASL To be announced
AUDIO DESCRIPTION To be announced

Miles Davis famously said, “It’s not the notes you play, it’s the notes you don’t play.” SMALL MOUTH SOUNDS is most intriguing for the story between the lines. Set at a silent yoga retreat, this heartful story is told through body language – the knowing smiles, shifts in weight, nervous giggles, brushes of skin, and indefinable expressions that we simply cannot communicate through a Zoom rectangle.
