John Proctor is the Villain

Things are unsettled at Helen County High in rural Georgia-rumors are swirling around a student's dad, another student blew up her life and left for Atlanta, and Mr. Smith's junior English class has to make it through sex ed before they can finally start The Crucible. But what one man calls a witch hunt, a young woman calls the truth, and when the teens start questioning what really happened in Salem, everything threatens to change. A new play from a major new voice, John Proctor is the Villain captures a generation in mid-transformation, running on pop music, optimism, and fury-writing their own coming of age story.

Marys Seacole

Mosaic Theater Company at Atlas Performing Arts Center

A "dazzling hall of mirrors" (New York Times) told with a furiously singular vision by Pulitzer Prize winner Jackie Sibblies Drury, this play, based in part on the autobiography of Mary Seacole, charts one woman's extraordinary journey through space and time: from mid-1800s Jamaica, to the frontlines of the Crimean War, to a modern-day nursing home.

Marys Seacole
The Upstairs Department

After a serious illness, a young man wakes up with the power to communicate with the dead (or so he believes). Desperate for guidance and to connect with their late father, he and his skeptic sister set out to test his paranormal talent at the Lily Dale Spiritualist community where their discoveries summon more than the afterlife.
