We are sad to announce that we will have to cancel our production of ALABASTER. The current coronavirus pandemic makes public performances, and even rehearsals, unsafe. We hope to be able to bring this beautiful play to Michigan in a future season.

Alice, a noted photographer, sets out to explore the topography of scars, and the women who bear them. Her journey takes her to the mysterious realm of an undiscovered folk artist, June, who is hiding herself away on a small farm in North Alabama. What begins as an artistic collaboration between the two women becomes an intimate exploration of love, grief and longing. This bittersweet portrait explores the meaning and purpose of art and the struggle of the lost and tortured souls that seek to create it. Hilarious, heart-wrenching and full of theatre magic, this play will rip your heart out, make you laugh, and remind you to hold close the people in your life. Contains adult content and language.
