Sept 9th - Oct 2nd, 2021

Starting off the season is a work by Artie award winning playwright Mark Humphrey entitled "Speed of Dark". Featuring actors Hugh Davis, Vincenzo McNeill, Monish Bhattacharyya, and Quentin Gray, the piece centers around four-men who find themselves on the wrong end-of-the day in a Sundown Town, and, as contemplating the best escape plan or face certain death, they discover the integrity within themselves as well as find dignity & pride to who they are as men.

Directed by Matthew LaChiusa
