RFK: A Journey for Justice

by Richard Bloom
Directed by Michael Fusco
Jan. 7, & 9, 2016 at 8:00pm

RFK is a behind-the-scenes look at the tension between principle and political practicalities, and is based on the true story of Robert Kennedy's somewhat acrimonious discussions with Martin Luther King and other leaders of the civil rights movement, before Robert (and his brother, the president) chose a path what has turned out to be the right side of history.

Robin Hood and the Secret of Sherwood

by Jeremy Sony
Directed by Jeremy Sony

When the Brothers Huntingdon lost their parents to the treachery of King Henry of the Plantagenets, their lives took very different paths. One became an outlaw. One became the sheriff. A chance to reclaim their nobility brings the brothers to Sherwood, where they find a Queen fighting for freedom, the King who destroyed their family, and the truth about their connection to Robin Hood. Their feud puts the very future of England at stake, as one brother puts himself before his kin, while the other discovers that being an outlaw might just be in his blood.

The Simply Staged weekend is offered to patrons without charge (though donations are accepted). Also, no reservations are taken for this engagement, an open seating event.
