From the basement to the barn, your beloved Church Basement Ladies are back and getting busy with life outside the kitchen. After the last of the hotdish is served, the coffee pot is emptied, and the Jello molds are put away, these steadfast, sturdy women head to their farms, peel off their good girdles, and get on with their daily chores. In between picking eggs, milking cows, and dusting knickknacks, they congregate with some of the other lovable folks who inhabit this rural community: Earl, who delivers the mail up and down Rural Route One; Fergus, the hired man; and Tillie, who chronicles the action for the Fish County Weekly.

With plenty of crazy antics, loads of fresh laughs, and spanking new original songs, YOU SMELL BARN celebrates rural life in the 1950’s. And, at the center of it all, are your favorite Church Basement Ladies. Whether you’ve seen several versions, or are new to the world of the basement, the 7th in the Church Basement Ladies series is a musical treat for all.

From the groundbreaking, gender-bending Split Britches theater company comes a political satire that explores aging, anxiety and “doomsday” theory through conversation and collaboration with an array of elders and artists. Named after the buried or forgotten munitions of war known as UXOs, this unique production combines darkly playful Dr. Strangelove-inspired performance with a daring new protocol for public discussion — the Situation Room. As the performers contemplate where UXOs are located, how much energy they contain and what would happen if they were uncovered, they suggest that this potentially dangerous ammo may also be a metaphor for our unexplored desires.

When an American basketball team travels to Beijing for an exhibition game in 1989, the drama goes deeper than the strain between countries. For two men with a past and one teen with a future, the game is a chance to stake their moment in history and claim personal victories off the court. Tensions rise right up to the final buzzer as history collides with the action in the stadium. Rapid-fire comedy meets poignant reflection in this perceptive new play inspired by the life of playwright Lauren Yee’s father. Contains mature language.
