JACK GOES BOATING by Bob Glaudini
This wry and gentle comedy about hope and heartache follows four friends as they struggle with the difficulties of finding love and keeping it alive. Jack and Connie reach for each other through awkwardness and buried injury; Clyde and Lucy try to hold on in spite of a widening chasm of betrayal and estrangement they can't seem to bridge. Jack Goes Boating offers a whimsical glimpse of both the fundamental flaws of our humanity and the deep sweetness of the soul.

KILLER JOE by Tracy Letts
Southern-fried sickness with a side of crazy: this is early Tracy Letts (Bug, August: Osage County) at his toxic finest, a story of murder, mayhem, lust and KFC deep in the heart of Texas. When hapless small-time drug-dealer Chris decides to have his mother murdered in hopes that the insurance money will cover his drug debts and keep him from being killed by loan sharks, he enlists the lethal assistance of dirty Dallas detective Joe Cooper, who moonlights as a contract killer - thereby unleashing a Texas twister of insanity he can't possibly control.

BAREFOOT IN THE PARK by Neil Simon
Neil Simon's lighthearted classic is a delicious confection made of the chaos and confusion of young love and the fragile first moments of newlywed life. Paul and Corie are the original Dharma and Greg, a buttoned-down conservative in love with a sparkling free spirit who turns his carefully ordered life upside-down. They have a lot to learn about what it really means to be married, and nobody is more surprised than they are when they hit the first few bumps in the road.
