John Lyly's sweet pastoral, performed at the court of Queen Elizabeth I to celebrate the New Year, features two girls disguised as boys who hide in the woods in order to avoid Neptune's annual sacrifice. Nice fathers, nymphs, fairies, and various gods, including Venus, all conspire to protect the lovers who ultimately are married--proving again that Love is Love.

Rising Up! Young Heroes
"Rising Up" is an original play based on survivor testimony, directed by Mickey Tennenbaum. A graduate student, Tali (played by Molly Nemirow), encounters six teenagers caught in war and genocide, Margot ("Tina" Jean-Louis), Hannah (Taitum Eddington), Egon (Viraj Shriwardhanker), Romi (Nicholas Nunez), Rachel (Caitlyn Efner), and Gabi (Leslie Baez). This play celebrates the 80th anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising and honors Holocaust Remembrance Day. The play was written by Lori Weintrob, Theresa McCarthy and Martin Moran and first performed under the title "In the Light of One Another: A Meditation on Resistance" in 2018.
