2021: Great Expectations

Packed with curious and fascinating characters, enchanting and dangerous places, and situations both thrilling and horrifying, Great Expectations is a literary gem. This story is full of surprises, and Dickens masterfully guides us through a world of shadow and light to an ending both poignant and satisfying as we follow the orphan Pip as he grows up and realizes his own great expectations.

This dramatic adaptation by Gale Childs Daly of Dickens’ classic has garnered praise throughout the country. Join the GRSF company for an exciting journey with Pip through nineteenth-century England. Directed by Doug Scholz-Carlson.

2021: Every Brilliant Thing

You’re six years old. Mum’s in the hospital. Dad says she’s “done something stupid”. She finds it hard to be happy. So you start to make a list of everything that’s brilliant about the world. Everything that’s worth living for.

1. Ice cream

2. Kung Fu movies

3. Burning things

4. Laughing so hard you shoot milk out your nose

5. Construction cranes

6. Me

You leave it on her pillow. You know she’s read it because she’s corrected your spelling. Soon, the list will take on a life of its own.

Every Brilliant Thing by Duncan Macmillan and Jonny Donahoe is a play about depression and the lengths we will go to for those we love, and stars GRSF company member Michael Fitzpatrick. Directed by Andrew Carlson.
