Christie by Brian Richard Mori
This new play focuses on painting a portrait of the larger than life politician: Chris Christie. From the infamous Bridge-gate to his meme-worthy picture on a closed beach, Christie has been mired with scandal after scandal. Through factual communications with his closest advisors and rare glimpses of his high school days, this play takes an unflinchingly look at how a politician on the rise could fall so quickly and easily with one petty decision.

By Larry Kramer
The Normal Heart is a powerful, stirring drama based on the harrowing true story of the beginning of the AIDS crisis in New York City, and the gay men who fought with an entire political system to take their plight seriously. Based on playwright Larry Kramer’s own experiences founding the Gay Men’s Health Crisis in New York in the 1980s, The Normal Heart follows Ned Weeks, a reluctant leader but furious activist, as he campaigns for awareness, and tends to his own friends and lovers who are dying all around him. A strong indictment against ignorance, and a heartfelt story of love and compassion, The Normal Heart is a passionate and searing portrayal of a population at war, and a plague that nips at its heels every step of the way.
