Barbara Hammond’s The Eva Trilogy is a lyrical Irish epic spanning thirty years over the course of three plays: Eden, Enter The Roar and No Coast Road.

Empty Space: A New Webseries

Theater is like Sausage—if you love it, you should never watch it being made. Watch the comedy that fills the void Shakespeare in Love and Slings and Arrows left in your heart.

A love letter to live theater, Empty Space is nine-episode web comedy that explores and glorifies the world of diehard thespians, those hardcore beasts of the theater who soldier on against the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune because, after all, the show must go on.
