Fefu and Her Friends (Oct. 2 and Oct. 13)—Eight women meet in the New England home of Fefu to rehearse for an educational fundraiser. The play morphs into an environmentally staged look into the intimate lives and relationships of these women.

Mud (Oct. 3 and Oct. 11)—Mae lives with Lloyd in considerable rural poverty but Mae attends classes and is committed to learning to read. Winner of the 1984 Obie Award for Playwriting, Mud delves into one woman’s desire for education against all odds.
The Conduct of Life (Oct. 4 and Oct. 10)—Orlando, a sadistic army lieutenant, lives with his older wife, Leticia, and their servant, Olimpia, in a private home in an unidentified Latin American country.

The Summer in Gossensass (Oct. 6 and Oct. 9)—In London in 1891, Elizabeth Robins, a celebrated American actress, and her friend, Marion Leah, a well-known British actress, clamor at the possibility of performing in Henrik Ibsen’s Hedda Gabler.
