At Liberty Hall follows two high school students who've just moved to New Jersey: Cristian Rosario, a funny but unfocused teenager from Queens by way of the Dominican Republic; and Alexander Hamilton, 16, the subject of Cristian's 10th grade history project. This time-bending story finds common threads of humor, honor and awkwardness as told through the experiences of a someday-Founding Father and a kid looking for a way out of the projects.

Clybourne Park

New Jersey Premiere

written by Bruce Norris
directed by Wes Grantom

An exceptionally witty and deliciously dry satire that explores the effects on Clybourne Park's 1950’s all-white community when a couple unknowingly sells their house to a black family. The tables of gentrification turn when, fifty years later, the now all black community greets the news of an impending sale to a white family with the same level of apprehension.
