The play tells the story of Alan Turing, a brilliant mathematician, who devised the means of cracking the German Enigma code which helped win World War II. Meanwhile, he also "broke the code" by being unapolologetiically homosexual at a time when homosexuality was illegal in Great Britain. The play is biographical covering Turing's life from a small boy through to his death at the age of 41.

Becky Foster is caught in a middle age, middle management and in a middling marriage with no prospect for change on the horizon. Then one night a socially inept and grief-struck millionaire stumbles into the car dealership where Becky works. Becky is offered nothing short of a new life. Becky's New Car is an original comedy with serious overtones, a devious and delightful romp down the road not taken.

Paul Osborn's family comedy dishes up a triple dose of nostalgic pleasures. The plot plays out over just two days in the lives of the four aging Gibb sisters living in a small Midwestern town in 1938. It deals with ramifications within the family when two of them begin to question their lives and decide to make some changes.It's a charming portrait of small town America. It was revived on Broadway in 1980 and 2002 to critical acclaim.
