LONELY PLANET: This compassionate play reveals friendship and fear in the age of AIDS. Jody is in his forties and runs a map store. Not one for the outside world, Jody stays in his map store all the time. His friend, Carl has been bringing chairs of dead friends into Jody’s store and leaving them there. When Jody needs to take an AIDS test, Carl tries to convince him it is not only okay to leave the store but also that he must take responsibility for his life, or he will join the set of chairs that are gradually filling the store. Through their interaction, the two realize how grateful they are to have such a strong lasting friendship.

A fresh new work by an Iowa playwright—Script to be announced October 1

SYLVIA: Greg and Kate have moved to Manhattan after 22 years of child-raising in the suburbs. Greg’s career as a financial trader is winding down, while Kate’s career, as a public-school English teacher, is beginning to offer her more opportunities. Greg brings home a dog he found in the park—or that has found him—bearing only the name “Sylvia” on her name tag. A street-smart mixture of Lab and Poodle, Sylvia becomes a major bone of contention between husband and wife. The marriage is put in serious jeopardy—will a compromise be found, or will Sylvia take over?

THE GOAT, OR WHO IS SYLVIA?: (Winner of the 2001 Tony Award) On his 50th birthday, Martin, a world-famous architect, prepares for a recorded interview by an old friend in the TV business; but in the course of the conversation a secret emerges that threatens to turn celebration to tragedy. The Goat is hugely enjoyable parable that plumbs the deepest questions of social constraints on the individual expression of love.
