Some Day For A Crown (January 26-28 and February 2-4, 2018)

by Ron Gephart and directed by Ron Gephart

When Alzheimer's disease changes a loved one's personality, do we try to get them to "come back" - even if just for brief moments , or do we try to "meet them where they are" - wherever that goes? What's the obligation to keep promises made to someone who's now an entirely different person? This is the semi-autobiographical account of a close family's struggles with Alzheimer's from veteran Memphis actor/director(and-now-playwright!).

Five Women Wearing the Same Dress (March 23-April 1, 2018)

by Alan Ball directed by Thomas King

During an ostentatious wedding reception at a Knoxville, Tennessee, estate, five reluctant, identically clad bridesmaids hide out in an upstairs bedroom, each with her own reason to avoid the proceedings below. As the afternoon wears on, these five very different women joyously discover a common bond in this wickedly funny, irreverent, and touching celebration of the women's spirit.
