February 9-14 Mary Stuart
A conflict raged for 20 years between Elizabeth of England and Mary Stuart, during which the destiny of England as an independent nation of free people trembled in the balance. Elizabeth struggles over whether to keep her cousin Mary alive or to execute her. Each course seems to be of equal peril. The play is by turns a testament to human bravery and personal dignity; a conflict between personal and political responsibility; a struggle between womanhood and statesmanship, where Mary triumphs at one and Elizabeth the other.

Adaptation by Helen Edmundson from Leo Tolstoy's novel
Directed by Josh Horowitz
Married to a provincial governor, the punctilious Alexei Karenin, Anna revolts against her life of compromise when she meets the charming officer Count Vronsky. She embarks on a scandalous affair, which completely destroys her family life and brings her to the brink of destruction. Interspersed with Anna’s tragic downfall is the story of Levin, an idealistic landowner striving to find meaning in his life – a character often seen as a self-portrait of Tolstoy himself. Edmundson's adaptation illuminates the story's grand pattern: how the adulterous Anna travels towards disintegration and death, while the young landowner, Levin, travels toward maturity and a sense of wholeness.
