She Kills Monsters
by Qui Nguyen

This high-octane journey of discovery romps through the 1990s world of fantasy role-playing games. Agnes Evans has tragically lost her parents and little sister, Tilly. When she discovers Tilly’s Dungeons and Dragons notebook and learns that her nerdy young sibling was a celebrated D&D master, she embarks on a quest to discover Tilly’s secret world: a girl-geek’s paradise of woman warriors, bloodthirsty cheerleaders, and myriad monsters who provided Tilly’s refuge and offer Agnes a release from her grief.

Silent Sky

February 28 - Mar 10, 2019

Silent Sky
by Lauren Gunderson

The true story of Henrietta Leavitt, a young astronomer who in the early 1900s began work at the Harvard Observatory. Permitted only to work in support of her male higher-ups, the brilliant Leavitt pursued her own research into the light and distance of stars. Largely unappreciated in her lifetime, her breathtaking discoveries led to our knowledge that the universe is expanding, and forever changed the way we understand the cosmos. Directed by BU senior, Trevor Baty.

Sense And Sensibility

April 25 - May 5, 2019

Sense And Sensibility
Adapted by Kate Hamill from the novel by Jane Austen

Never out of print since its 1807 debut, Jane Austen’s classic first novel comes to vibrant life in this acclaimed stage adaptation. Facing bleak prospects, the disinherited young Dashwood sisters discover love, endure heartbreak, and achieve triumph as England swerves between the reason (“Sense”) of the late 18th century and the surging romanticism (“Sensibility”) of the 19th. An indelible gallery of lovers, rogues, greedy in-laws, generous friends, and witless twits, are rendered with Austen’s spectacular language and benevolent humor, and staged with ingenious theatricality and style.
