Fresh from New York, this incisive comedy takes an unflinching look at how things get done in Washington. When Sydney Millsap wins a seat in Congress, she’s determined to drain the swamp. Then she meets Kate, a whip-smart lobbyist who gets her clients what they want—whatever they want. When Kate helps Sydney try to unseat a powerful senator steeped in cronyism, the result is a “sleek, fast-paced, absorbing and very funny” (Vogue) exploration of money’s corrosive effect on politics.

Discussant: Larry Hedges, PhD, PsyD, ABPP
In a barber shop above Mrs. Lovett’s struggling pie shop, Sweeney Todd plots revenge on the lecherous judge who wronged him and his family. In the seedy underbelly of 19th-century London, desperate times lead to diabolical schemes—and strange alliances. With razor-sharp wit and extraordinary songs like “Pretty Women” and “Not While I’m Around,” this Tony Award-winning masterpiece was proclaimed, “more fun than a graveyard on the night of the annual skeleton’s ball” by The New York Daily News.

Rosalind Franklin was a British pioneer in science in the early 1950s, yet her groundbreaking role in the discovery of DNA’s double helix structure is still often overlooked. Based on a true story, Photograph 51 presents an intriguing portrait of a complex, courageous woman making her way in a male-dominated field. While rival teams of researchers compete for a breakthrough, Rosalind, focused and unbending, is locked in a race of her own. A hit in the West End, it was proclaimed “A triumph” by The Telegraph.

By Qui Nguyen
Discussant: Cathearine Jenkins-Hall, PhD
In the award-winning Vietgone, Qui Nguyen recounted his parents’ hot and hilarious courtship in a Vietnamese refugee camp in 1975. Now, six years later, Tong and Quang are building new lives in a foreign land called Arkansas. But marriage is hard—especially when she’s having doubts and his first one isn’t over yet. One family’s history makes for a raucously funny, deeply moving take on the immigrant story, told with hip-hop style.

By David Henry Hwang
Discussant: Glenda Corstorphine, PsyD
When this rich, compelling drama debuted on Broadway, it became an instant sensation, sweeping the Tony, Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle awards. A married French diplomat. A mysterious Chinese opera diva. A passionate 20-year affair. Inspired by true events, this break-out hit by the author of Chinglish and Golden Child proved much more than a steamy tale of seduction. Obsession, perception and the allure of fantasy make for a remarkable tale of espionage and betrayal described as “visionary” by The New York Times.
