LATE is a coming-of-age story, seen in the contemporary light of a school shooting. In a theatrical style reminiscent of Our Town, a group of teens return to school for the first time since “that day.” A collective amnesia seems to possess them, until a student leader, BILLIE, sparks their memories of their last day together. They begin to re-enact the rush of an ordinary school day in all of its ordinary complexity, from friendships and first love to plagiarism and drug use. But the recollection of that day inevitably leads to the memory of the catastrophe that ended it. As their voices unite, the teenagers challenge all of us to speak up for the children lost to gun violence.

ONE STONE is a work of imagination inspired by historical and biographical facts. It is a play about an intimate relationship between two scientists – one who became internationally famous, and one who has been removed from history. It is a story about the deep emotional, intellectual and physical connection between Albert Einstein and the physicist Mileva Marić , who was his first wife. It dramatizes the uncredited role she played in Einstein’s breakthrough achievements, and raises questions about how gender affects the success or failure of talent. It is a historical play which leads us to ask if and how it is easier today for women in science, or in any field where they want to excel.
