The future is looking bright in Springfield! A brand-new hot springs Spa and Resort is about to open its doors. Hotels and shops are booming in anticipation of a blockbuster tourist season. The Spa’s visionary chief medical officer Dr. Thomas Stockman is being hailed as a local hero for turning the humdrum town into a must-see destination until he discovers that the springs themselves are poisoned and he insists on doing the ‘right thing.’
Morality meets self-interest, inconvenient truths fight alternative facts, and minority rights clash with majority rule in a powerful, timely interrogation of individual conscience versus the will of the “people.”

WINNER OF THE OBIE AWARD FOR BEST NEW AMERICAN PLAY
Judge Peyton is dead and his plantation, Terrebonne, is in financial ruins. Peyton’s handsome nephew George arrives as heir apparent and quickly falls in love with Zoe, a beautiful, one-eighth black “octoroon.” But the evil overseer, M’Closky, has other plans for both Terrebonne and Zoe. From the author of Gloria (Gamm 2018) and Appropriate, this raucous, irreverent retelling of a hit 19th-century melodrama is “this decade’s most eloquent statement on race in America today.” (New York Times)
“It’s bold, fearless playwriting: laughing in the face of racism as well as allowing the horror of history to spell itself out.” Time Out (London)
“[An Octoroon] insists that making theater can be the best way to talk back to history.”
The Village Voice
“Bizarrely brilliant. An extraordinary play that defies categorisation.” The Guardian
At a bus stop in a run-down New Jersey town, Darja, a Polish immigrant who gets by on a cleaning job, pragmatism and sheer will, is done talking about feelings. It’s time to talk money. Over the course of 22 years, and three relationships, Darja negotiates for her future with men who can offer her love or security, but never both. Award-winning playwright Martyna Majok’s Ironbound is a darkly funny, heartbreaking portrait of a tough woman for whom love is a luxury — and a liability — and survival is the only measure of success.
“You seldom see plays that are both harsh and wonderful…The play never sugarcoats, yet it steers clear of bleakness because Majok’s language is so entertainingly alive.” Washington Post
“[An] intriguing work…The play, like life, isn’t about easy answers." New York Daily News
Shakespeare’s classic comedy reimagined in the Gamm’s first ever staging of his most popular, magical, and transformative play. A young woman flees an enforced marriage and rivals give chase and find themselves in a Fairy Kingdom thrown into turmoil by marital strife of its own. Meanwhile a group of amateur actors prepare for their shot on the biggest stage. Midsummer is Shakespeare’s evergreen tale of how quickly our world can turn upside down and how human ingenuity, love, and art can just as quickly help it reassert and reinvent itself.
“Shakespeare…always feels like coming home for The Gamm." Motif
“The Gamm has proved…that Shakespeare runs in this company’s blood."
