Madelyn and Keenan are NPR-listening, latte-sipping liberals, while Heather and Jim are NRA-cardholding, truck-driving conservatives. After an unfortunate mix-up by their blundering fertility doctor, Heather is mistakenly impregnated with the wrong family’s embryo! Thus begins an outrageously funny nine-month odyssey of culture shock and clashing values as both couples attempt to become friends for the good of the child. Don't miss the East Coast premiere of this timely and provocative new comedy that asks, “Will our similarities ever become more meaningful than our differences?”

Knock, knock. You’ll never guess who’s there. Henrik Ibsen’s Nora has returned 15 years later to the door she once famously slammed behind her! Universally acclaimed as the best play of the 2017 Broadway season, this contemporary, funny and thought-provoking sequel to Ibsen’s famous play crackles with razor-sharp humor and intelligence that speaks directly to today’s audiences about marriage and the ways the roles of women have – and haven't – changed. (Please note: you will enjoy this play whether you are familiar with A Doll’s House or not and will be talking about it all the way home!)
