God of Carnage

by Yasmina Reza
translated by Christopher Hampton

A playground altercation resulting in lasting injury brings together two sets of parents for a meeting to resolve the matter. At first, diplomatic niceties are observed, but, as personalities clash and loyalties emerge, the gloves soon come off, leaving both couples with more than their liberal principles in tatters. A comedy of bad manners where civilized intent and savage impulse collide.

Death of the Author

by Steven Drukman

When a college professor suspects a student of plagiarism on the cusp of graduation, his inquiry sparks a chain of events affecting the lives of four people in very real terms. Questions of authorship and authenticity become entangled with careerism, university policy, and personal trauma as they consider what is right, what is wrong, and what must be done.
