February 21st--March 14th
Based on the iconic novel by George Orwell, 1984 is the story of Winston Smith, an insignificant party member in the giant machine state of Oceania. Physically and mentally under the omnipresent eye of Big Brother, Winston has been caught struggling for scraps of love and freedom in a world awash with distrust and violence. With the brutal "assistance" of four Party Members who reenact scenes from his diary, Winston is forced to confess his Thoughtcrimes before an unseen inquisitor.
The Creation of the World...
and Other Business
February 7th--March 1st
Tickets: Pay What You Can
The actors of Theatre9/12 are excited and energized to present a comedy by one of Americas greatest playwrights that provokes discussion of the very root of our current political situation. The news tells us what happened; this play challenges us with "why?"
We are producing Arthur Miller's The Creation of the World and Other Business. This is his comedic yet incisive retelling of Genesis from the creation of humanity until their expulsion. However, the play is an exploration of mankind's choices and asks the question: Where does evil come from?
Originally staged on Broadway with a Borscht Belt style played up for silliness, the production did not succeed as its great ideas were sacrificed for laughs. Subsequent productions in New York City, D.C., and Canada have proven this rare comedy by this multi-award winning playwright is a hidden treasure.

February 21st--March 7th
The wind-swept moors are a bleak and vicious landscape, and their inhabitants are no less wild. Two sisters, an erratic maid, and a rather large mastiff strategize, scrub, and sigh in a labyrinthine Victorian mansion. The entrance of a governess and crash-landing of a moor-hen set all four on a strange trajectory, one step closer to the thrill and danger of being truly seen.
You'd Better Sit Down For This

Are you ready to rumble? Tickets start at $29. This is an 18+ only event with ID.
