April 28-May 15, 2016
Playing at the NEIGHBORHOOD HOUSE AT CHRIST CHURCH

For our 11th season, we are proud to present Michael John LaChiusa’s triptych of stories about lust, greed, murder, faith and redemption. How do we know who to trust or what is true? This challenging and provocative musical explores the power of the lens – that what you believe is subject to how you examine the events. Our production will be a unique collaboration between 11th Hour’s founders!
