Little Gem
An uplifting Irish comedy about life, death, and "getting on with it" by Elaine Murphy. Party girl Amber feels a rumble in her stomach. Her compulsive mother Lorraine tries her hand at salsa dancing. And her grandmother Kay "toys" with the meaning of pleasure as she looks after her ill husband. Chock full of Dublin slang and hilarity, this play depicts three generations of middle-class, Irish women as they strive to piece together their lives over one extraordinary year.

Dream of Autumn
It seems a chance meeting, two former lovers in a cemetery, where the man will bury his grandmother. But nothing is as it seems, all of life, of lives, of history, is going to emerge from the dreamlike shadows as these two do battle against each other, then turn together to face the forces of the past and future. 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. World premiere translation by director Sarah Cameron Sunde starring Martin Giles, Karla Boos, Laurie Klatscher, and Gregory Lehane.
