The year is 1896. Girton College, Cambridge is the first college in Britain to admit women, and the Girton girls study ferociously to match their male peers grade for grade. Yet, when the men graduate, the women leave with nothing but the stigma of being a 'blue stocking' - an unnatural, educated woman. They are denied degrees and go home unqualified and "unsuitable for marriage".

In Jessica Swale's debut play, Blue Stockings, Tess Moffat and her fellow first years are determined to win the right to graduate, but they don't anticipate the hurdles in their way: the distractions of love, the cruelty of the class divide, or the strength of the opposition, who will do anything to stop them. The play follows them over one tumultuous academic year, in their fight to change the future of education.

This witty and thought-provoking play examines the rights of every woman -- to an education, to her own autonomy, and to ride a bicycle, all set against the larger backdrop of women's suffrage -- the young men beside them.

By special arrangement with Nick Hern Books

Thirteen-year-old Edwina Spoonapple would do just about anything to be a part of the Kalamazoo Advice-a-Palooza Festival. While her siblings have ample proof of their accomplishments, poor Edwina has nothing. So, when a talent scout from the convention visits her hometown, she trots out her musical advice, giving shows live from the family garage in hopes of finding her place in the spotlight. Assisted by her older siblings, quirky friends and neighbors, they set out to tackle the world's problems in number after hysterical number about everything from overcoming shyness to proper table settings.

Silly, buoyant and compassionate,  this heartwarming musical will delight audiences of all ages!

Dr. Luanella, the matriarch of a large household, rich from generations in the shipping industry, has just retired to devote all of her time (and much of her large fortune) to reaching the Moon, there to commune with the high-beings she is convinced inhabit its craters. Meanwhile, her daughter is desperately in love, her servants are working overtime, and her investors are getting antsy as she once again fails to launch herself into space. Dr. Luanella manages to ignore it all, dead-set on her lunar expedition: she denies her daughters suitor, convinced that there's a "man on the moon" who is waiting to wed dear Isabella, she refuses to pay her servants, promising them various plots of land on adjacent planets, and she keeps the investors at bay with new scientific discoveries and explanations that account for her failures. Finally, her family and servants team up to trick Luanella and the investors move on to a different project. The tides turn and the lunacy ends.
