A failing Italian restaurant in the small town of Pocatello, Idaho, celebrates "famigilia week" in an effort to drum up business and reconnect with its values--a bit contrived, considering the restaurant is one branch of large and impersonal corporate chain. But Eddie, the branch manager, believes in the restaurant and in the town, and refuses to give up on his home even as businesses close and friends and loved ones move on to life outside Pocatello. From acclaimed playwright and MacArthur Fellow Samuel D. Hunter, Pocatello is a comedic and heartfelt look into the changing landscape of middle America, and the flawed and lovable people trying to build a home on shifting ground.
From the writer of the critically acclaimed Death of the Persian Prince and A Normal Life comes the award-winning new play, The Crusade of Connor Stephens, where extreme loss shakes a Texas family as it comes to terms with a tragic act of violence. In the midst of widespread media attention, their story becomes an allegory for the national debate over religion, tolerance and the seedlings of hate. With humor and resilience, they will confront the ghosts of the past and discover the brutal universal truths that define the American family in the 21st century.
The Crusade of Connor Stephens made its world premiere at The Midtown International Theater Festival, followed by a critically-acclaimed commercial Off- Broadway run at the Jerry Orbach Theater at the Theater Center, 50th Street and Broadway in New York City.

Congratulations on another fine production with "The Crusade of Connor Stephens". The acting and production were outstanding. Thank you for continuing to bring innovative thought-provoking plays to Honolulu. - Brue Shiramizu
  
TRUE WEST is a character study that examines the relationship between Austin, a screenwriter, and his older brother Lee. It is set in the kitchen of their mother's home 40 miles east of Los Angeles. Austin is house-sitting while their mother is in Alaska, and there he is confronted by his brother, who proceeds to bully his way into staying at the house and using Austin's car. In addition, the screenplay which Austin is pitching to his connection in Hollywood somehow gets taken over by the pushy con-man tactics of Lee, and the brothers find themselves forced to cooperate in the creation of a story that will make or break both their lives. In the process, the conflict between the brothers creates a heated situation in which their roles as successful family man and nomadic drifter are somehow reversed, and each man finds himself admitting that he had somehow always wished he were in the other's shoes.
