For two nights only, critically acclaimed theatrical company, UNIVERSES, as part of a continuing collaboration with the Long Wharf Theater, brings the next chapter of the company's "AMERICA Cycle" series to the White Heron Stage: AmericUS. Get ready for an emotional piece of theatre that will challenge your perception of this country and our place in it.

The Hound of the Baskervilles

Screen Shot 2019-03-23 at 10.36.18 AM

The Hound of the Baskervilles

by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Adapted by Steven Canny and John Nicholson

June 26 - July 20

Directed by Mark Shanahan.

This very British comedy, based on the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Sherlock Holmes series, is suitable for any age but adults will especially enjoy its sophisticated, comic take on landed nobility and country folk alike. This story features murder, a supernatural hound and the foggy desolate Devonshire moors. Will Holmes and Watson prevail? Of course, it's elementary.

The Weir

The Weir

by Conor McPherson

July 25 - August 17

Directed by Amanda Charlton

A “weir” is a spillway on a stream or small river. Sometimes it allows a trickle, and other times a deluge. This aptly describes the stories you’ll hear in this local Irish pub where friends and strangers meet to warm up. Have a pint. Or two. Or three. Fans of last season’s Outside Mullingar will find much to like in The Weir.

Fireflies

by Matthew Barber

August 23 - September 14

Directed by Lynne Bolton

Made possible by the Franci Neely Foundation

Fireflies debuted at White Heron in 2017 as part of our collaboration with the Long Wharf Theatre in New Haven. It's the story of Eleanore, a respected lady in her small Texas town, and a drifter handyman, Abel, who causes quite a stir by flickering in and out of Eleanore's life...

Like the summer fireflies viewed from her porch at night.
