They say: “Famed Philadelphia theatre company Pig Iron transforms a gothic mystery into an orgiastic celebration of nihilism. As a prince lies dying his bitter secretary schemes, an alchemist conjures, and an egocentric tennis coach moves in on the ladies. An existential classic explodes into delicious darkness and antic acrobatics.”

PYWC: Tickets go on sale 90 minutes before show time. Two per person, cash or check only. A line usually forms, so get there early. Let me know if you want to come with us.

They say: “A scalding, sensual look at upper-middle class life in a Tel Aviv suburb. After a split-second roadside collision with a Chinese foreign worker, two couples’ lives unravel as their acts of omission and commission come back to haunt them. A daughter comes clean to her parents, forcing everyone to undertake moral reckonings of their own. This hit Israeli show is a biting look at the way we live now.’"
