It’s 1956 and the Susan B. Anthony Society for the Sisters of Gertrude Stein are having their annual quiche breakfast.

Lorca in a Green Dress by Nilo Cruz

Lorca in a Green Dress is Cruz’s surreal homage to Federico Garcia Lorca, the critically acclaimed poet and dramatist. It’s 1936 in Spain, a time of civil war; Lorca finds himself in a state of flux, struggling to defend himself against an inquisition bent on persecuting him for his political beliefs and sexual identity.

Gross Indecency: The Three Trials of Oscar Wilde by Moisés Kaufman

At the height of his career, the Crown prosecuted Oscar Wilde for "gross indecency with male persons." Despite two hit shows on the West End, the courtroom denounced Wilde's art as immoral - forcing him to defend his works and life with characteristic wit and insight. Gross Indecency explores this true story with a text crafted from a wealth of eyewitness accounts.
