its 2016-2017 season:




Body Awareness by Annie Baker

Sept. 30–Oct. 16, 2016 at the Cabaret

330 S. Scott

directed by Joan O'Dwyer


Pulitzer Prize winning playwright, Annie Baker, pens this comedy about a quirky family, tenuously held together by love, whose fragile harmony is threatened when they host a controversial guest artist for "Body Awareness Week" at a local college.


"An engaging new comedy by a young playwright with a probing, understated voice…Its quiet rewards steal up on you." – THE NEW YORK TIMES


"Baker's dialogue is tart and personable, with just enough unexpected twists
in the characterizations to keep you leaning forward." – THE WASHINGTON POST


Boston Marriage by David Mamet

Dec. 1–18, 2016 at Community Playhouse

1881 N. Oracle (between Speedway and Grant)

directed by Avis Judd


A witty, incisive satire of decorous vulgarity, barely repressed desire,
and class hostility, set amid the confines of Edwardian Era Boston.


"[Mamet's characters] are at each other's throats with a wit akin to characters out of Wilde and a vengeance not unlike those from Pinter, Edward Albee, or Mamet himself..." – BOSTON GLOBE

"Brilliant... one of Mamet's most satisfying and accomplished plays and
​one of the funniest American comedies in years." – NEW YORK POST



What Every Girl Should Know by Monica Byrne

Feb. 9-26, 2017 at Community Playhouse

1881 N. Oracle (between Speedway and Grant)

directed by Jasmine Roth


Catholic reform school girls in 1914 discover Margaret

Sanger and her message of freedom through birth control. 


"As tight as it is timely…as pertinent as the latest attack on Sanger's great legacy, Planned Parenthood." – SFGATE.COM


"Top to bottom, start to finish, 'What Every Girl Should Know' is an excellent piece of theater…As long as the war over women's reproductive rights rages on [this is] a story people need to keep telling." – NYTHEATRE.COM



Dov and Ali by Anna Ziegler

Apr. 6-23, 2017 at Community Playhouse

1881 N. Oracle (between Speedway and Grant)

directed by Joan O'Dwyer


A Jewish teacher and his Muslim student talk as

equals about fate and free will, family and faith.


"…a flawless play…In a time of ceaseless snark and cynicism, its earnestness in asking bigger questions can be downright refreshing." – THE NEW YORK TIMES


"'Dov and Ali' is a powerhouse play that drives its way through an hour and a half of twists and turns about race, individuality, human relations and role models…There is a resounding truth that pours out if it in all directions…and yet [it] doesn't preach.  There are no answers offered, there are no morals proffered, but when theatre is this good, it reminds you how essential it is." – WHATSONSTAGE.COM



The Taming of the Shrew: an adaptation

Apr. 27-May 14, 2017 at the new Fluxx Productions

690 E. 19th St. #130 Tucson 85719
