After years of ruling Britain in peace, a respected King Lear decides to relinquish his crown and divide his kingdom among his three daughters.

King Lear is a gripping portrait of fathers, daughters and a once mighty ruler thwarted by his own hubris and betrayed by a vanishing mind.
It's France, 1940. Tensions are high. The booze is flowing. War is coming. Written by Steven Carl McCasland, Little Wars imagines Lillian Hellman, Dorothy Parker, Gertrude Stein, Agatha Christie, Alice B. Toklas, and Muriel Gardiner having the best what-if dinner party you can imagine. Together they'll drink, scoff, and face their demons. Everyone has a confession. Someone has a secret.
Shelli Place directs an all-women cast that includes Candace Barrett-Birk, Sue Scott, Elizabeth Desotelle, Laura Adams, Vanessa Gamble, Alison Edwards, and Miriam Schwartz. Little Wars is the debut performance of PRIME Productions, a new professional theater company in the Twin Cities focused on "celebrating women in their second act."

Eleven years ago, wealthy Nebraska businessman James Herrold unjustly threw his only son, Paul, out of the family business. Now he wants Nero Wolfe to find Paul so he can make amends.

This case draws the great detective and his devoted sidekick into a web of deceit, one that even the master sleuth may regret taking on.
Based on the life of Justice Thurgood Marshall and starring one of the Twin Cities' most venerable actors, James Craven, Thurgood is an eye-opening, humorous, and inspiring portrait of a true American hero. The story opens with retired Supreme Court Justice Marshall returning to Howard University, where he earned his law degree, to give a speech. He then brings to life significant events and turning points — from his childhood in the back alleys of Baltimore to his career as a civil rights pioneer, and ultimately as the first African-American Supreme Court Justice.
Michael Robins directs the critically acclaimed show by playwright George Stevens Jr. Thurgood premiered in 2006 at the Westport Country Playhouse (Connecticut) and starred James Earl Jones. The 2008 Broadway production featured Laurence Fishburne, who was nominated for a Tony Award and later starred in the 2011 HBO film of the same name.
