The little girl who lived in the library
Sharon Washington plays nearly 20 characters in her own true story of growing up in the custodial apartment of a Manhattan library, where her father toils night and day to load the fiery furnace with coal, or in the eyes of a fanciful little bookworm, to feed the dragon. Shrouded in family mystery, Sharon’s story boldly examines how both the power of forgiveness and her lifelong love for the written word have helped her battle dragons of all forms.

By Edith Wharton
Adapted for the Stage by Douglas McGrath
Directed by Doug Hughes
The Gilded Age of the 1870s.
New York City society at its most cultivated, wealthy and rigid—an elite class of people who dreaded scandal more than disease. In her Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, Edith Wharton introduces us to the courtly young gentleman lawyer Newland Archer; his traditional and demure fiancée May; and the free-spirited Countess Olenska, who has come home from Europe, tainted by scandal. From the moment Newland meets the Countess, he is torn between virtue and desire, and all three are forced to make the agonizing choice, ever old and ever new, between love and honor.

Directed by Darko Tresnjak
When love is a crime.
A black man and a white woman meet after-hours, in a shadowy library, to make love and to talk, hiding from the venomous gaze of a never-seen but ever-present neighbor. Written in 1972, set against the background of apartheid, Statements is a masterpiece by Athol Fugard, one of the great poets of the stage.
