You Can't Take It With You By MOSS HART & GEORGE S. KAUFMAN

You Can't Take It With You is a batty reflection on the madness of sanity in a mad world and it remains as insightful and delightful as when it first graced the stage. It's a heart-felt comedy that resonates with a 21st century audience in need of a laugh.

 Proof By David Auburn A 2001 pulitzer prize winner

Proof is the story of an enigmatic young woman, Catherine, her manipulative sister, their brilliant father, and an unexpected suitor.  They are all pieces of the puzzle in the search for the truth behind a mysterious mathematical proof.

Little Women  A dramatization of Louisa M. Alcott

 Little Women, a story that never will grow old for its treatment of a mother's love for her children and their appreciation. Who can forget tom boy Jo and her sacrificing her glorious hair to help finance her mother's trip to Washington, when the telegram arrived saying her father was dying? Of her writing "The Christmas Play," rehearsing Amy in the fainting scene and then the playing of the drama on the fateful night when everything went wrong. Her beautiful scenes with Little Beth when they both knew the Angel of Death was hovering near? Of her going to New York, meeting Professor Bhaer in Mrs. Kirk's rooming house, their comedy courtship and ultimate marriage?

  The Crucible takes place in Salem, Massachusetts in 1692.

The action begins in the home of Reverend Parris, whose daughter Betty lies unconscious and appears very ill. Around midnight the night before, Parris had discovered Betty, his niece Abigail, and Tituba, his black slave, dancing in the woods, causing Betty to swoon. The local physician is unable to determine the cause of Betty's illness. Mr. and Mrs. Putnam arrive and reveal that their daughter Ruth is also ill. There is talk in the village of an unnatural cause.
