Heckscher Theatre for Families Production

The Impracticality of Modern-Day Mastodons by Rachel Teagle

A World Premiere

September 4-19, 2021

Suddenly all childhood dreams have come true, and the world is full of astronauts, ballerinas, cowboys, and princesses. It's a brave and glorious new world for everyone but Jess, who wanted to be a mastodon when she grew up. With the help of her friendly vocational adviser and her super-spy boyfriend, Jess embarks on a journey to find her place in the world, and discover why it seems to be unraveling. An offbeat comedy about ambition, vocation, and restlessness.

Theatre Lab has moved to the University Theatre for this production and worked with puppet designer, Jim Hammond, (former puppet-master for Broadway’s The Lion King) to design and build a 9’x12’ Mastodon puppet for this larger than life show!

Overactive Letdown by Gina Montet
A World Premiere
Previews: March 24 – 25, 2022
Run: March 26 – April 10, 2022
Directed by Margaret Ledford
Married and in love, Christine and Mark are eagerly expecting their first child, but the reality of bringing baby home is filled with the unexpected. Problems go deeper than diapers when Mark takes on extra work and Christine escapes the monotony of life-at-home by binge-watching streaming services. Soon, exhaustion, surging hormones, and her an anxious mind create a perfect storm, sweeping Christine in and out of the dream worlds of the movies she loves. As her fantasies take over, reality blurs, and nothing is quite as it seems in this exciting portrayal of motherhood and life after birth. 

This dark-comedic thriller from a local playwright was a hit at our 2020 New Play Festival!
