The Weir
Written by Conor McPherson
 
Directed by Norma McGrath
 
 

In a remote country pub in Ireland, newcomer Valerie arrives and becomes spellbound by an evening of ghostly stories told by the local bachelors who drink there. With a whiff of sexual tension in the air and the wind whistling  outside, what starts out as blarney  soon turns dark  as the tales drift into the realm of the supernatural. Then, Valerie reveals a startling story of her own.

Is there anything more exciting, frightening and utterly transformational than impending parenthood? Baby, the musical from acclaimed duo Richard Maltby, Jr. and David Shire examines how parents-to-be experience the emotional stresses and triumphs, as well as the desperate lows and the comic highs that accompany the anticipation and arrival of a baby.
 
Three couples on a university campus deal with the painful, rewarding and agonizingly funny consequences of the universal experience of pregnancy and upcoming parenthood. There are the college students, barely at the beginning of their adult lives; the thirty-somethings, having trouble conceiving but determined to try; and the middle aged parents, looking forward to seeing their last child graduate from college when a night of unexpected passion lands them back where they started.

It's a Wonderful Life
Written by Frank Capra
 
Directed by Gail Weston-Roberts
Produced by Faye Harrington

 
Revisit Bedford Falls, fall in love again with George and Mary, and discover the magic of an angel named Clarence. It’s Christmas Eve in 1947, and inside a radio studio a live broadcast brings to life Frank Capra’s timeless film in all of its feel-good glory.
