Helen Wheeler is a gun totin’ and whiskey drinking Granny, living in the small town of Crockett, Oklahoma.  When Helen isn’t locked up in the local clink, she’s on her front porch shootin’ up critters and the local kids.  Not even the local sheriff, who has already taken away all of her ammo and her driver’s license, can manage to uphold the law when it comes to Helen, her sidekick Zona, and their daily “Thelma and Louise” antics.

The Lost Virginity Tour is a funny, profound, and provocative play about four women in their golden years – not talking about their grandkids or their knitting circles, but talking about sex and love, and recalling their ‘first time’ with often hilarious but sometimes harrowing detail.   This humorous and adventurous road trip conjures up the choices we make that shape our lives forever, and the friendships that hold us up when we can’t walk on our own.

Two strangers, a man and a woman, board a San Francisco BART train at 4:30 a.m. Alone in the car, the only thing they have in common is that they are both doing the New York Times crossword puzzle.  Soon the puzzles they unravel are more intriguing than any crossword puzzle could ever be.

Impressions

Degas. Monet. Renoir. Artists who painted indelible images that have lasted for centuries. The Impressionists introduced a new way of looking at the world, allowing the eye and the imagination to re-define the people and places they painted. With Impressions, Michael Leeds employs three exceptional actresses to bring to life the women in their paintings. From a Degas dancer to a Monet matron, Impressions imagines who these women are and what they’re thinking. Art literally brought to life.
