The Voysey Inheritance



by


Harley Granville Baker




Harley Granville-Barker's classic investigation into the capitalist soul in this brilliant adaptation. For generations, the Voysey family business has been secretly skimming money from its clients' accounts.
When Edward, designated to take over the firm from his aging father, discovers the embezzlement that has been keeping his
relatives in a life of luxury, he must weigh the trappings of wealth and the imperative to preserve his family's good name against the better principles of his conscience.
But moral righteousness turns to self-protection when he comes to understand fully the consequences of his "inheritance."

Nights in the Gardens of Spain

by

Alan Bennett



Many of Bennett's characters are unfortunate and downtrodden, or meek and overlooked. Life has brought them to an impasse, or else passed them by altogether.
In many cases they have met with disappointment in the realm of sex and intimate relationships, largely through tentativeness and a failure to connect with others.


And




A Room of One's Own



by

Virginia Woolf

The title of the essay comes from Woolf's conception that, 'a woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction'. Woolf notes that women have been kept from writing because of their relative poverty, and financial freedom will bring women the freedom to write; "In the first place, to have a room of her own... was out of the question, unless her parents were exceptionally rich or very noble". The title also refers to any author's need for poetic license and the personal liberty to create art.















The Show Off


by
George Kelly

The Show Off was greeted in 1926 as the most brilliant comedy of character that any American dramatist had produced. This tremendously human and appealing comedy is a rare combination of character, humor and human nature.
"The struggles of Aubrey Piper to satisfy his enormous egotism and at the same time preserve his self respect in the presence of discouraging obstacles constitute one of the most interesting plays of our time. " Heyward Broun, New York World










Living Together

by

Alan Aykbourn


A trio of comedies set over one weekend at a home in the English countryside. Each play takes place in a different locations around the house: the dining room in
"Table Manners," the living room in "Living Together," and the garden in "Round and Round the Garden." The ingenious result is that as plots unfold, something seemingly incidental in one play takes on a hysterical new context in the next.

The Charity that Began at Home: A Comedy for Philanthropists



by


St John Hanken




"The Charity that Began at Home, a comedy by St. John Hankin, had me laughing and laughing all afternoon long." Toronto Globe and Mail .
George Bernard Shaw called Hanken": "One of the masters of comedy among my playwright colleagues."
The play tells the story of how one family's all-consuming commitment to kindness has awful and amusing consequences
that turns their household upside down.



































Both My Sons

by

Abdul Muhamet Al Nuffi


In this moving drama from the aclaimed award winning Palistinian dramatist and author of Both My Sons captures the moment when a Palestinian couple, evicted from following the 1967 Six Day War, return to their former home. The son they were forced to abandon as a babe in arms has been raised by a Polish Isreali surviver of the holocaust. Now twenty he meets his birth parents for the first time. The boy now is an IDF soldier. The conflict these refugees face starkly illuminates the conflict of the unresolved tragidy of these two peoples. .
