The 2001 Pulitzer Prize for Drama winner follows Catherine immediately after the death of her father, Robert. Robert was a mathematical genius in his youth but suffered from severe bouts of mental illness for much of his later life. Catherine was his primary caretaker. She must now figure out who she is while sorting through which part(s) of her father she inherited.

A classical comedy of romantic proportions, Twelfth Night follows Viola (disguised as a male) in her love for Orsino, Orsino in his love for Olivia, and Olivia in her love for the disguised Viola. It is the classic love triangle padded by a hilarious subplot to make Olivia’s pompous steward, Malvolio, look like a total fool.

In what the New York Post called “Shepard’s masterwork” this Pulitzer Prize finalist explores what it means for humans to have a “double nature.” Two estranged brothers, Lee and Austin, meet up in their mother’s Southern California suburban home; Austin to work on his latest screenplay and Lee to scour the surrounding houses for valuable appliances. What ensues over the next several days between the brothers is both riveting and shocking.

New City Players is continuing its work with new plays written by local playwrights. We are still in the determining phase for what this new work will be. 


Let us not waste our time in idle discourse! Let us do something, while we have the chance! It is not every day that we are needed. But at this place, at this moment of time, all mankind is us, whether we like it or not. Let us make the most of it, before it is too late.
