Now retired and widowed, and seeking redemption, Judge Driver volunteers to do pro bono legal work with Tanya, a vulnerable ex-con with a troubled teenage son, while working to repair the increasingly complicated relationships with his own adult children. When his newfound generosity is perceived as condescension, Judge Driver runs the risk of losing everything.

Borderlands follows the ups and downs of a group of musicians and songwriters, gathered to trade tales in a beat-up bar, and to toast the return of a mysterious friend. Connected in more ways than they can count, they do their best to shore each other up and cheer each other on—all the while taking care not to reveal too many secrets as they stumble to find their own “three chords and the truth."

Titus Andronicus Jun 4 - Jul 30, 2015  
The Public House Theatre Titus Andronicus
 
"Titus Andronicus" is not William Shakespeare's most popular play, but when it is mounted, it makes a powerful statement. The story is a simple and grotesque portrait of the perversions of power, revenge and the consequences of our primal fear of "The Other." A legendary general takes a foreign queen captive, slaughters her oldest son, and sets off a chain of events which sees his own daughter violated and disfigured, and the Queen's remaining, offending sons baked into a pie.

Lawrence and Joanna, a brother and sister in their mid-twenties, have cut themselves off from the world "outside," living in a cluttered playroom which they share with two imaginary companions, "Edna" and "Claypone." Surrounded by toys, including a miniature Ferris wheel, they have created an atmosphere of almost suffocating intimacy and remove, where play becomes the business of life and reality an alien force to be kept at bay. But life intrudes all the same, and their fantasies have betrayed them into Joanna's pregnancy.

Exploring the fears and frustrations faced by a shrinking and put-upon middle class, Eat the Poor, Strip the Rich presents two concise, dark, fun and strange pieces of satire. In Out at Sea, three survivors of a shipwreck decide amongst themselves who should become the first meal. Think of it as Survivor ... hosted by a starving and particularly ornery Anthony Bourdain. Striptease finds two middle managers locked in a battle for control against a mysterious online force -- a satirical work akin to Office Space, as penned by the founders of Facebook. This Under the Gun Theater production explores the hidden links between culture and power, with a keen eye on comedy.
