A lawyer hires an actor to tutor him in recounting, to family and friends, a story that has long troubled him concerning events that transpired while attending the funeral of an elderly recluse. There, he caught sight of a woman in black, the mere mention of whom terrifies the locals, for she is a specter who haunts the neighborhood where her illegitimate child was accidentally killed. It is rumored that anyone who sees her dies. Together, the lawyer and the actor recreate the events of that dark and stormy night.

LEMONS LEMONS LEMONS LEMONS LEMONS by Sam Steiner
The average person will speak 123,205,750 words in a lifetime. But what if there was a limit? Oliver and Bernadette are about to find out. This show imagines a world where we're forced to say less. It's about what we say and how we say it; about the things we can only hear in the silence; about dead cats, activism, eye contact, and lemons, lemons, lemons, lemons, lemons.
THE PILLOWMAN by Martin McDonagh
Katurian, a writer of short stories that often depict violence against children, has been arrested by two detectives, Ariel and Tupolski, because some of his stories resemble recent child murders. When he hears that his brother Michal has confessed to the murders and implicated him, Katurian resigns himself to being executed but attempts to save his stories from destruction. The play contains both narrations and reenactments of several of Katurian’s stories, including the autobiographical “The Writer and the Writer’s Brother”, which tells how Katurian developed his disturbed imagination by hearing the sounds of Michal being tortured by their parents.
