From the playwright of the acclaimed off-Broadway hit "Small Mouth Sounds" comes "Touch(ed)". Kay loves her older sister Emma. Or is it Christina? Christine? Matilda? After spending eight years institutionalized and medicated, Emma has changed more than just her name. Determined to get back the brilliant sister she remembers, Kay rents a cabin in the woods and she and her boyfriend Billy hide the sharp objects, from butcher knife to cheese grater. Perhaps quality time with loved ones, some home-cooked meals and games of Scrabble will succeed in restoring Emma to health where her psychiatrists have failed. In its Houston Premiere, Bess Wohl's lively, tender play explores the scope, limits and sometimes dangerous side effects of familial love. See "Touch(ed)" when Rogue Productions brings it to Studio 101. [less-]

Written in 1882, "An Enemy of the People" takes aim at a number of issues that were prevalent in Norway at the time: political corruption and the silencing of whistleblowers, the destructive impact of industry on the environment, and the role ethics plays in the media and what they report. Clearly these subjects are not only still relevant today, but remarkably topical once again. The play follows Dr. Thomas Stockmann, a notable and respected doctor in his town, as he discovers that the local water supply and the public baths -- a source of great pride and income for the town -- have become contaminated by local industry and are now poisonous. He struggles with his brother, the town's mayor and one of the owners of the baths, in trying to get his findings published in the town's newspaper. A play, at its heart, about personal responsibility and the rights and roles of whistleblowers, "An Enemy of the People" could be ripped from today's headlines. See it at the Classical Theatre @Chelsea Market in Houston. [less-]
