The Late Henry Moss  
The Artistic Home The Late Henry Moss
 
Drawn together by their father's death, the brothers battle to discover the truth of their own lives as they sit watch over their father's body and wade through memories upon which cannot or will not be agreed. Henry Moss, a booze-riddled broken man, lived his life violently and spent his final days living a bleak half-life in a desert hovel cared for by a fawning neighbor and a magical shaman temptress. The Late Henry Moss is the culmination for Shephard of a career often focused on the complex, violent father-son dynamic. Even in death, Henry dominates the room and the relationship between Ray and Earl, who fight to the bitter end to exorcise themselves from his toxic death grip.
   
Late Nite Catechism  
Royal George Theatre Late Nite Catechism
 
Late Nite Catechism is an uproariously funny play, written by Vicki Quade and Maripat Donovan, where the irrepressible Sister teaches class to a roomful of "students." Throughout the course of the play the benevolent instructor rewards audience members for correct answers with glow-in-the-dark rosaries and other nifty prizes. Naughty students may well find themselves on stage sitting in a corner reflecting their actions. Now in its 20th year in Chicago, Late Nite Catechism is a sharp satire, but never mean. It’s simply an evening of fun and laughter.

Four strangers (an older couple, a sailor and a young girl) are quarantined together during the Black Plague's sweep through London. They all attempt to connect to each other by revealing their own truths, exposing others' lies, sharing emotions and attempting to keep the plague out of mind. Unfortunately, there is a constant reminder of the death and decay going on outside those four walls - the guard stationed in front of the couple's home. He calls the numbers of the dead, offers "remedies," strikes deals and preaches to the masses - all while seeming to go mad himself from all the detriment around him. Will the plague, confinement, and socioeconomic differences allow these attempted connections to be anything more than an attempt at self-preservation?
