Akeelah and the Bee  
Children's Theatre Company Akeelah and the Bee
Akeelah has a crazy passion for words: the more abstruse and labyrinthine, the better. But this gift is almost overwhelmed by the challenge of her daily life in a tough, dangerous Chicago neighborhood, and by Akeelah's yearning for a different life. The first theatrical adaptation of the critically-acclaimed film is directed by Charles Randolph-Wright and captures all the hope and spirit of the original story in an inspiring tale of a community united behind one little girl's dream. Akeelah and the Bee will also be featured in La Jolla Playhouse's DNA New Work Series and will travel to a major regional theatre following its run at CTC.
Jungle Theatre Annapurna
In this gripping tale - by turns hilarious and harrowing - Emma tracks ex-husband Ulysses to a trailer park in the middle of nowhere for a final reckoning. What unfolds is a visceral and profound meditation on love and loss with the simplest of theatrical elements: two people in one room. The estranged couple attempt to come to terms with what happened one night 20 years ago - something Ulysses can't remember and Emma can never forget - and the closer they get to uncovering what drove them apart, the more they are drawn back together.

Fall in love for the first time or the tenth with the ladies who volunteer in the church kitchen -- Karin, Mavis and widow Vivian Snustad -- serving up humor and heart in generous portions.
The Cubicle  
Art House North The Cubicle
Bucket Brigade's satirical tragicomedy The Cubicle made its critically acclaimed debut at the Minnesota Fringe in 2005 and now it comes to Art House North for its 10th anniversary reprise. Hailed as "one of the favorites of the Fringe" by the Des Moines Register and the "sleeper hit" of that year's festival by Pioneer Press, The Cubicle is best described as "a little bit Beckett, a little bit Seinfeld and a whole lot of cunning." Nearly everyone has experienced life in a tiny 5X5-foot square workspace, so you'll most certainly appreciate this hilarious meditation on how working within those confines impacts the others parts of our lives.
Dancing at Lughnasa

A beautiful portrait of family, faith, hope and the sorrow of unvarnished reality, the Tony Award winning Dancing at Lughnasa strikes deep chords that words cannot begin to touch.
