Clue - The Play, Based on the Motion Picture
Adapted from the screenplay by Jonathan Lynn
Based on the Paramount Pictures Motion Picture based on the Hasbro board game
Directed by Daniel Kruger
Based on the iconic 1985 Paramount movie which was inspired by the classic Hasbro board game, Clue is a hilarious farce-meets-murder mystery. The tale begins at a remote mansion, where six mysterious guests assemble for an unusual dinner party where murder and blackmail are on the menu. When their host turns up dead, they all become suspects. Led by Wadsworth – the butler, Miss Scarlett, Professor Plum, Mrs. White, Mr. Green, Mrs. Peacock and Colonel Mustard race to find the killer as the body count stacks up. Clue is the comedy whodunit that will leave audience members in stitches as they try to figure out…WHO did it, WHERE, and with WHAT!

Fun Home
Book and Lyrics by Lisa Kron
Music by Jeanine Tesori
Based on the graphic novel by Alison Bechdel
Directed by Kathy Dershimer
Produced by Jenny Boone and Harold Dershimer
Fun Home, winner of Best Musical from New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award, Obie Award, Lucille Lortel Award and also, Outer Cities Circle Award, as well as the 2015 Tony Award for Best Musical, Best Original Score, and Best Book of a Musical, is a refreshingly honest, wholly original musical about seeing your parents through grown-up eyes. When her father dies unexpectedly, graphic novelist Alison dives deep into her past to tell the story of the volatile, brilliant, one-of-a-kind man whose temperament and secrets defined her family and her life. Moving between past and present, Alison relives her unique childhood playing at the family’s Bechdel Funeral Home, her growing understanding of her own sexuality, and the looming, unanswerable questions about her father’s hidden desires.

Night Watch
by Lucille Fletcher
Directed by Brandon Ferruccio
NIGHT WATCH, perhaps best known as the 1973 feature film starring Elizabeth Taylor and Laurence Harvey, is an ingeniously devised thriller which builds steadily in menace and suspense until the final, breath-stopping moment. Unable to sleep, Elaine Wheeler paces the living room of her Manhattan townhouse, troubled by unsettling memories and vague fears. The mystery begins when Elaine observes one corpse, and then another in the building opposite her home. But when police detectives are called in to investigate, they can find not a shred of evidence nor discover any bodies. And although Elaine insists that she saw what she saw, continuous suspicions arise as she begins to drive herself and everyone around her to their emotional limits; including her husband John, her best friend Blanche, and her maid, Helga. As they all become concerned with Elaine's sanity, a famed psychiatrist is summoned to evaluate her and the unsettling circumstances at play. Will plans be made for Elaine to be sent to a sanitarium in Switzerland? Or will a supposed killer strike again? Who knows... perhaps even Elaine's life is in deadly danger?
NIGHT WATCH is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.
