A tragedy has befallen a great city. A country girds for war. Helen, the national figurehead of beauty and hope, has been abducted from Sparta, and its young men and women — those most likely to do the fighting and mourning — ready themselves for war. Achilles in Sparta tells the story of a nation marching towards inevitable conflict and the fall of a hero.
Michael Place directed last year's production of O Beautiful at Cornish. Michael has performed and directed with many local theaters, and is founding artistic curator of the new play development organization One Coast Collaboration.
Witness the story of 12-year-old Ben Uchida, a Japanese-American boy whose life is changed forever following the World War II attack on Pearl Harbor. When the U.S. government forces Japanese-American citizens into internment camps, Ben and his family must face difficult truths about the idea of home. One young person's struggle to understand a society allowing mass discrimination against its citizens poses questions as urgent today as they were in the past.
The circus of current politics adds new acts almost daily, but a persistent cloud hanging over the country is the tunnel-vision view of our own opinions that prevents honest exchange, compromise and growth.
Luigi Pirandello's 1917 comedy Right You Are, If You Think You Are, offered that the truth of reality is only as strong as the beliefs in our minds. Theatre9/12's artistic director, Charles Waxberg, adapts the comedy for a modern audience at a time when reality is our opinions and the other side is the enemy. You Are Right, If You Think, in its world premiere, tells the story of a suspicious family that moves into a city "some time ago, but not too long" and excites the whole neighborhood to investigate their peculiar lives.
