NOW ON STAGE: Motherland by Allison Gregory
A self-made woman does her crafty best to protect her wayward children, keep her food truck business thriving, and impart some kind of moral code in a city battling collapse. But in the War on Poverty, it turns out the enemy is hard to identify, and objectives are even murkier. In Motherland, grit, guile, and guns are everyday parenting tools, and hope comes at a cost. A funny, raw, timely new play inspired by Bertolt Brecht's Mother Courage and Her Children, considered one of the most important plays of the 20th Century.
Directed By: Matt Stabile
Featuring: Jordon Armstrong, Troy Davidson, Jovon Jacobs, Shein Mompremier, Roderick Randle, Michael H. Small, and Karen Stephens as Mother

Established in 2015, Theatre Lab's mission is to inspire, develop, and produce new work, audiences, and artists for the American Theatre. After a successful first season of play readings and concert-style musical events, Theatre Lab returns with a newly renovated space and a fantastic second season!
The 2016-17 season will feature a MainStage Series of three full productions, a Playwright's Forum & MasterClass Series - where audiences attend a reading of a playwright's work followed by a discussion with the playwright, another week-long New Play Festival, and multiple concert-style readings of new musicals.
