If you were given a second chance -- an opportunity to recapture something wonderful, to reverse a regret that's been with you for years -- would you be brave enough to risk everything for another shot at happiness? Austin, the detached, middle-aged Boston banker at the center of this heartwarming comedy, will face this very question over the course of Later Life. When he unexpectedly runs into Ruth, a charming woman with whom he once shared a brief romantic encounter many years ago, Austin discovers that she's in a bad marriage that she may be thinking of escaping. But will he be able to pursue this potential romance, or will he withdraw back into his safe, solitary existence? A reminder of all that life can offer if you're willing to roll the dice, this Oil Lamp Theater production of A.R. Gurney's Later Life is a warmhearted and humorous look at love and second chances.

In Hellman's turn-of-the century study of family greed, Ben and Oscar Hubbard stand to earn millions funding an industrialized cotton mill, and seek help with the initial investment from their sister Regina.

Ferocious, funny and enduringly relevant, The Little Foxes is an absorbing chronicle of the dark side of the American Dream and wealth's corrupting power--and "one of the most enjoyably chilling chapters in the history of melodrama" (The New York Times).
