*May 5th - Dream of Autumn by Jon Fosse  
Directed by Matt Torney

As dark Autumn closes in, a man and a woman meet in a graveyard and engage in a reckless affair. 

Written by one of Europe's leading playwrights, Jon Fosse's lyrical and erotic drama provides urgent testimony to the fact that our loves and lives will be the death of us all. 

*May 12th - Brighton by James Nolan
Directed by Matt Torney

A funny, poignant and uplifting hymn to the human spirit, Brighton is set in the Sisters of Calvary Nursing Home in London and follows plucky Irish widow and Fulham FC supporter, Lily Thompson on her last great adventure.  

*May 19th - Boy by Kari Saanum

Directed by Alicia Dyana House

In this darkly humorous play a young boy's increasingly strange behavior is starting to tear a family apart.  As he becomes more dangerous, his parents struggle to contain his sociopathic behavior, and begin to question everything they know about parenthood, family, and society.

Followed by a post show discussion with playwright Kari Saanum and translator Oystein Ulsberg Brager

*May 26th - Man Without Purpose by Arne Lygre
Directed by Henning Hegland

A businessman arrives at one of Norway's most beautiful fjords.  He has come to build a town, and will stop at nothing to achieve his dream.  Here he will finally find happiness and purpose.  

Stark and lyrical, this beautiful drama explores guilt, love, family, failure, and the desperate need of one man to finally find meaning in his life.
