Our Current Show!



THE POT


Written by Glenn Hutchinson
Directed by John Richards



It's Thanksgiving, and when Nathan comes home from college, he has one more paper to write. The topic: Who Am I? He has never known his biological parents who were white and black, and home for him has been with his white, adoptive parents. When his sister, Laura, brings home her new boyfriend, Rick -- an undocumented Mexican immigrant with whom she is madly in love -- the family melting pot is stirred and the heat is raised. A Thanksgiving meal turns into a drama about what happens to someone caught in the U.S. immigration system. The Pot boils into a 21st century American drama about what defines, unites, and separates us.

Performances:
April 13-15 & 20-22, 2018
Fridays & Saturdays at 7:30 PM | Sunday matinee at 2 PM
Sunday shows are followed by an expert panel discussion.

THIS SHOW HAS A 15MIN INTERMISSION IN WHICH REFRESHMENTS ARE SERVED IN THE ZOGHBY ROOM
