“Ragtime” by Terrence McNally

As written by Terrence McNally, with lyrics by Lynn Ahrens and music by Stephen Flaherty, and based on the 1975 novel by E. L. Doctorow, Ragtime tells the story of America and its melting pot at the dawn of the 20th century, weaving together the stories of a stifled upper-class wife, a determined Jewish immigrant and a daring young Harlem musician – all united by their courage, compassion and belief in the promise of the future.

“The Farnsworth Invention” by Aaron Sorkin

It’s 1929. Two ambitious visionaries race against each other to invent a device called “television.” Separated by two thousand miles, each knows that if he stops working, even for a moment, the other will gain the edge. Who will unlock the key to the greatest innovation of the 20th century: the ruthless media mogul, or the self-taught Idaho farm boy?  The answer comes to compelling life in The Farnsworth Invention, the play from Aaron Sorkin, creator of The West Wing.

“My Name is Asher Lev” by Aaron Posner

October 22nd – November 9th – Studio Two, Riffe Center
