A small Norwegian town is banking on its medicinal baths to bring prosperity. But its economic growth and moral health are threatened when Dr. Thomas Stockmann uncovers a toxic secret that pits him against his brother, Mayor Peter Stockmann.

Chicago’s South Side, the 1930s. Bigger Thomas struggles to find a place for himself in a world whose prejudice has shut him out. After taking a job in a wealthy white man’s house, he unwittingly unleashes a series of events that violently and irrevocably seal his fate. Native Son is an unforgettable theatrical experience that captures the power of Richard Wright’s iconic novel about oppression, freedom, and justice.

With breakneck speed and endless invention, Field Guide skates through one of the greatest—and longest! — novels ever written: The Brothers Karamazov. Rude Mechs literally (well, not literally) rips pages out of Dostoevsky’s powerful meditation on faith, meaning, and morality and mischievously replaces them with stand-up comedy, pop music dance numbers, a cardboard bear, and a talking bird.

In the astonishing first installment of Pulitzer Prize winner Suzan-Lori Parks’s new American Odyssey, set over the course of the Civil War, Hero is offered his freedom from slavery in exchange for joining his master in the ranks of the Confederacy.

A standing double date in Damascus quickly escalates into farce as four friends unburden their hearts and reveal their secret passions. But as civil war wages outside, nothing is really what it seems to be.
