A Play by Rainer Werner Fassbinder
directed by Brian Ahern
Bremen Freedom is a dark-as-coffee black comedy based on the true life story of the
19th century serial killer Geesche Gottfried, the last woman to be publicly hanged
in Germany. The play tells the story of a young woman struggling for self identity
in the oppressive and often violent world of Bremen, Germany. Using twisted humor,
outbursts of violence, passionate romance, and rich language, Bremen Freedom, follows
Geesche as she turns from businesswoman to serial killer in her attempt to work her
way out from under the thumbs of her long string of lovers.

A bawdy Texas drama, James McLure’s LONE STAR, extrapolates the struggle of two brothers
through betrayal and forgiveness, set in a small Texas town in the early 1970s. Roy
regales his stories of the good ol’ days as he sits and drinks under the wide open
Texas night sky with his younger brother, Ray.

The Frog Prince
by David Mamet
directed by Margaret Claahsen
David Mamet’s dark and witty comedy about a prince turned into a frog. Using the template
of this well known fairy tale, Mamet explores the tension between our idealistic expectations
and the harsh reality of life, in a way that only a Pulitzer prize winning and Tony
award nominated playwright can.
Sagnerelle, or The Imaginary Cuckold
directed by Jerick Johnson.
