One morning the doorbell rings at the home of Paul and Adam and in walks 15-year old Fox, who tells them he is Paul’s son and wants to live with them. Arriving to share this news are Paul’s parents Jim and Dorothy, and Fox’s mother Julie. This life-changing moment touches Paul and Adam as they consider marriage, and Jim and Dorothy, who never expected to be grandparents. Written by Philip Middleton Williams, directed by Jarvis Green.


A Late Snow by Jane Chambers

In Jane Chambers’ 1960’s play, closeted college professor Ellie finds herself snowbound in an isolated cabin with her first love, an ex-love, her current love, and a potential new love. Though written more than 50 years ago, A Late Snow remains relevant to modern audiences through its exploration of timeless themes of love, betrayal, and acceptance. Directed by Shannon Sanborn.
