by George Bernard Shaw
In this classic play that inspired the musical My Fair Lady, dialect expert Henry Higgins makes a bet that he can teach Cockney flower-girl Eliza Doolittle to pass as a “proper lady.” Stage Left teams with fellow Theater Wit Resident Company Boho Theatre to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the first production of this timeless story.

by Nina Raine
It’s Bella’s twenty-ninth birthday party: a wild night at the bar where friends can’t stand each other, ex-lovers can’t let go, and only one person knows the birthday girl’s father is dying. Nina Raine’s Rabbit is a brutally funny, surprisingly poignant look at how men and women see each other and relate in a world where nobody knows the rules anymore.
“an instant contender for debut of the year.” —Variety
“Terrific…a smart and bracing battle-of-the-sexes comedy…” —Sunday Express(London).
