Continuing the Domino Players’ tradition of premiering original work, this company-created piece explores the many faces of “home,” and investigates the different ways we construct, inhabit, and engage with our families, our communities, our country, the places we call home, our shared digital worlds, and of course, our very own Albright College.

Monsieur Orgon has a comfortable life in Paris with a lovely home, a beautiful wife and two grown children, yet he feels something is missing.  He brings home Tartuffe to be his spiritual advisor, and Tartuffe proposes some radical changes, much to the family’s dismay.  This classic comedy by the great Molière asks if we can ever really recognize virtue when we see it.

This is the tale of Orlando, a dashing Elizabethan nobleman who lived for 500 years. Halfway through his adventurous life, Orlando awakens from a seven-day slumber to find he has become, of all things, a woman. He, now she, learns to survive the 19th and 20th centuries by grappling with what it means to live fully in the present moment, in our own skin, in our own gender, and in our own time.

Winner of the 2007 Tony Award for Best Musical, this electrifying alternative rock musical tells a story of adolescent anarchy as a group of teens in 19th-century Germany, subjugated by their parent and teachers, dare to discover a sensual world of freedom and feeling outside the classroom, only to find their lives irreversibly shattered by the very adults who should protect them.
