Wiletta Mayer, an African American actress of a certain age, has spent her career playing stereotypes, trapped on a merry-go-round of mammies, maids, and other menials. The curtain rises on the first day of rehearsal for Chaos in Belleville, a Broadway-bound play that tackles the harsh truths of racism in America. But when those truths spill out of the play and into the rehearsal hall, will Wiletta's insistence on her dignity cost her the work she desperately needs? Kashi Johnson, director. LU Students attend for FREE, click for more info. LU Department of Theatre website

When an off-the-record adoption goes awry, Jeenu's new parents learn just how far a wolf will go to defend its pack. Wolf Play is a messy, funny and disturbing theatrical experience grappling with a wolf, a puppet, and the very problem of "What is a family, and what do we need from families today? Is it very different from what humans have needed from families before?" LU Students attend for FREE, click for more info. LU Department of Theatre website

The future of a whimsical, almost magical bookstore is uncertain after the owner dies and leaves the shop to her niece Rachel. Rachel has a job in New York City that doesn't pay her enough and a fiancé that won't stop calling. She doesn't ahve time or patience to run a bookstore, so when real estate agent Max Brewer offers her more money than she can imagine to turn the store into an apartment complex, her choice seems like a no-brainer. But as the shop works its magic on her and she gets to know the eccentric employees and clientele, she starts to wonder: Can you really put a price on a beloved community bookstore? LU Students attend for FREE, click for more info. LU Department of Theatre website
