The Tin WomanOf Kites and Kings

 

A new play by Gary Wright

Directed by Jerry Miller

 

Direct from its triumphant debut in Sacramento last year, TOTR is proud to present Northern California playwright Gary Wright’s hysterical historical account of America’s revolution through the eyes of Benjamin Franklin’s landlady and confidant, Polly Stevenson. The play transcends three decades as well as three countries. While Ben works to create a new independent America, three generations of Franklins depend on the irrepressible Polly for holding them together while their world is torn apart. Mr. Wright’s script is brimming with wit and wisdom. You’ll experience the American Revolution in a revolutionary way.

Outside MullingarOutside Mullingar


A play by John Patrick Shanley

Directed by Jerry Miller

 

Tony Award nominee for Best Play 2014 
From the author of Doubt and Moonstruck comes a romantic comedy set in rural Ireland. Anthony and Rosemary are lovelorn farmers who haven’t got a clue when it comes to love. These hopeless, introverted misfits will need to overcome a bitter land feud, familial rivalries, and their own romantic fears to find happiness. Full of dark humor and poetic prose, John Patrick Shanley’s tenderhearted portrait reminds us it’s never too late to take a chance on love.
