Season 4: Can great men be good men? Opening August 2024

Recent research inspired us to address toxic masculinity and how our culture’s patriarchal system harms all genders.1 It has long been acknowledged that non-males are oppressed by patriarchy, but the ways that men have been harmed by it are often ignored. By subverting the narrative of history’s so-called “great” men, we will show how patriarchy betrays men and encourages toxic behavior. Our theme fits into the broader zeitgeist recently represented in films like Oppenheimer, Barbie, and Maestro – all of which show how patriarchy spurs toxic masculinity.
  1. See the books Of Boys and Men: Why the Modern Male Is Struggling, Why It Matters, and What to Do About It by Richard Reeves (2022) and For the Love of Men: A New Vision for Mindful Masculinity by Liz Plank (2019).

Now streaming!Troilus and Cressida: The Musical!

Name your price, starting at $5, to stream Marcia Eppich-Harris’s new musical adaptation of Shakespeare’s Trojan War epic — Troilus and Cressida!  The Greeks and Trojans have reached a stalemate as the Trojan War enters its seventh year. As soldiers on both sides debate where to go from here, the Trojan prince, Troilus, occupies himself with thoughts of love for Cressida, whose father has defected to the Greeks. Meanwhile, Cressida, Helen, and Cassandra wonder how to protect their hearts, minds, and bodies in a world that views them as nothing more than property.
