The Normal Heart:
The Normal Heart is a largely autobiographical play that focuses on the rise of the HIV-AIDS crisis in New York City between 1981 and 1984 as seen through the eyes of writer/activist Ned Weeks, the founder of The Gay Men’s Health Crisis. Ned prefers loud public confrontations to the calmer, more private strategies favored by his associates, friends, and closeted lover Felix Turner. Their difference of opinion lead to frequent arguments that threaten to undermine their mutual goal. Originally produced Off-Broadway, a revival opened on Broadway in 2011, and was adapted into an award-winning HBO movie in 2014

The Children’s Hour:
The Children’s Hour revolves around idle gossip between schoolgirls that escalates into a fiasco. The story is a powerful tale of truth and lack thereof. Hellman creates a tense atmosphere between teachers and pupils. Problem-child Mary Tilford accuses her teachers, Karen Wright and Martha Dobie, of foul play. She says she hears “strange noises” coming from their room and “gets scared” because she doesn’t know what they are up to. Mary “confesses” her self-made lie to her grandmother, who begins the demise of the teachers. This attack on Dobie and Wright leads them to question their own relationships, in both personal and professional ways.

The Most Fabulous Story Ever Told:

Act One covers the Garden of Eden, an ark, a visit with a highly rambunctious Pharaoh and finally even the Nativity. Along the way, Mabel and Adam invent God, but Jane and Steve are skeptical. Act Two jumps to modern day Manhattan. Adam and Steve are together again, and Steve is HIV positive. It's Christmas Eve, and Jane is nine months pregnant even though she always thought of herself as the butch one. The two women want to marry and want Adam and Steve to join them in the ceremony. A wheelchair-bound, Jewish lesbian Rabbi from cable access TV arrives to officiate. three characters each. TV arrives to officiate. three characters
