• “Cu­ri­ous In­ci­dent of the Dog In The Night-Time” — Wed­nes­day, Sept. 12, 2018, 6 pm. Win­ner of the Tony Award for Best Play and 7 Olivier Awards, The Cu­ri­ous In­ci­dent of the Dog in the Night-Time tells the story of an autis­tic boy who em­barks on a fright­en­ing ad­ven­ture that up­turns his world.

• “Franken­stein” (with Bene­dict Cum­ber­batch as Crea­ture) — Wed­nes­day, Oct. 24, 2018, 6 p.m. Child­like in his in­no­cence but grotesque in form, Franken­stein’s be­wil­dered crea­ture is cast out into a hos­tile uni­verse by his hor­ror-struck maker. Sci­en­tific re­spon­si­bil­ity, parental ne­glect, cog­ni­tive de­vel­op­ment and the na­ture of good and evil, are em­bed­ded within this thrilling and deeply dis­turb­ing clas­sic tale.

• “Mac­beth” — Wed­nes­day, Dec. 12, 2018, 6 .m. Ruth­lessly fight­ing to sur­vive, the Mac­beths are pro­pelled to­wards THE­ATRE » PAGE 2
