The Brick and the Rose is a play written as a collage for voices. 10 actors portray 47 characters in Tommy’s life journey from his birth to his death.

In his search he witnesses street violence, drug use, and touches of beauty.

Flame in the Mirror is a work of power and poetry from local playwright John Ruoff that explores lust for success, fear of loss and everything it is to be Irish in America.
