Lisa Loomer’s comic drama about immigration and working mothers could not be more timely. Ana and Nancy make the same choice to leave their children in care of others. Both do so for their families, but Ana is an undocumented Salvadoran, while Nancy is a high-powered attorney. The contrast makes for a play that is both funny and tragic as we witness the terror of the undocumented and the devastating effects of inequality in our society.

Robert Cohen Theatre

Just three years after William Shakespeare’s death, botched and pirated versions of his plays are appearing all over London. His friends and company members can see just one solution: printing an official version of all his plays in a single folio edition in order to preserve them and ensure their future. Though the task seems impossible, their love for their friend, and for the transcendent wit and wonder of his plays, inspires them to persevere.
