RAGE

Book & lyrics by Elizabeth Dinkova
Original music and additional lyrics by Frederick Kennedy

Adapted from the novel, ”Rage,“ and essay, ”Guns,“ by Stephen King

A play with music, RAGE tells the story of a writer’s decades-long struggle with his first novel, “Rage,” a diary of a school shooter, which “inspired” readers with deadly results. As the writer plunges back into his early work to discover the causes of teenage disenfranchisement and violence, he is forced to confront uncomfortable truths about the thin line between creation and destruction.

Red Speedo

By Lucas Hnath
Directed by Mariah Sage

Ray has swum his way to the eve of the Olympic trials. If he makes the team, he’ll get a deal with Speedo. If he gets a deal with Speedo, he’ll never need a real job. So when someone’s stash of performance-enhancing drugs is found in the locker room fridge, threatening the entire team’s Olympic fate, Ray has to crush the rumors or risk losing everything. A sharp and stylish play about swimming, survival of the fittest, and the American dream of a level playing field — or of leveling the field yourself.

THEBES

A new musical directed by Danilo Gambini
In development through Quinnipiac University and Rattlestick Playwrights Theatre.
Collaborators: Danilo Gambini, Emma Hathaway, Katie Hathaway and Solon Snider.

Thebes is a new musical that came to life during lockdown in May 2020. A “workshop production”—Thebes is still not a finalized show and the collaborators foresee great changes to the production as it grows, evolves, changes and advances in its life. Since this is the first time this musical has ever been staged, it will also be the first time these songs are sung in public. As Thebes moves to the next stages of its life, the contributions from the cast and crew of this first workshop will be ingrained in Thebes’ heart forever.
