"We didn’t ask to solve the world’s problems; we asked to adopt a baby."
Annie and Peter are a childless couple in their late 30s who have decided to adopt a baby from Africa. But when they receive some surprising news about their potential bundle of joy, anxiety and doubt threaten to tear their world apart. Middle-class cultural sensibilities and global divisions come crashing in on their comfortable existence as they are forced to confront their own preconceived notions about what makes a family a family. As they reach out to friends and neighbors for advice, Annie and Peter become mired in indecision and second thoughts.
“The Call is a fascinating play that urges audience members to thoughtfully examine their established positions – both at home and as citizens of the world," Miller-Stephany said.
New York Times says The Call is “potent and engaging.”
A comedy with a penetrating edge, The Call is guaranteed to spark lively conversations about the expectations and realities of parenthood. Tanya Barfield’s dizzying indictment of American privilege is tempered with her compassion for flawed people holding the best of intentions.

When Jason meets his sister Randi for the first time, two lives steeped in sex, drugs, and grifting collide. In Antony Raymond's new play, Pretty Babies, society's lines are distorted in a story about the use of sadism and taboos as weapons in a no-holds-barred scheme of manipulation that devolves into animalism.
Thank you to everyone who came to see me in Elsinore County's new play, JULIO! I had a great time and I hope that you did so as well.
Julio! The most famous actor in Hollywood. He constantly hogs the spotlight while his friend and co-star, Bruce, waits and waits under Julio's tremendous shadow. That is, until Bruce's thirsty agent, Cash, and power hungry actress wife, Porsche Chevrolet, incite Bruce to murder Julio at Scott Baio's birthday party. Ambition, lust, and fame are the subjects of this satire in which Shakespeare meets Entourage.
