Equivocation at Victory Gardens (review)
If you haven't seen this show yet, go already. Equivocation unequivocally rocks! Bard nerds will find this show a laugh riot with plenty of Shakespearian references and in jokes. Yet Equivocation is something utterly unique and new, with biting political commentary, compelling characters, and multilayered meaning. Highly recommended.

Due to major funding that did not come through, the production of “Unspeakable,” which was scheduled to start performances at the Royal George Theatre Oct. 16, has been postponed until the spring. More details to come. Refunds available at point of purchase.
After at Profiles Theater (review)
There are plenty of prison dramas, but what happens after? This slice of life exploration of the aftermath of wrongful conviction is a thought provoking social commentary. What price can you put on a life unjustly snatched away in a miscarriage of justice. How does jail time inextricably alter a man? The characters go well beyond stereotypes and are a unique blend of traits and surprises. Check it out.
