In Faceless, eighteen-year-old Susie Glenn is on trial for conspiring to commit acts of terrorism, and recent Harvard Law grad and practicing Muslim, Claire Fathi, has been brought on to prosecute. Though pitted against one another in the courtroom, these two young women are fighting a similar battle to defend their morals, motives and religious freedoms in this riveting and timely new drama. An explosion of identity politics, questions of faith, and a face-off between two seemingly diametrically-opposed women drives this compelling narrative.

A new comedy about Being Alive and What I Did For Love in New York, New York...and All That Jazz.
Love! Valour! Compassion!
Love! Valour! Compassion! by Terrence McNally is the 1995 Tony Award Winner for Best Play and the 1995 Drama Desk Award Winner for Outstanding Play. At a beautiful Dutchess County farmhouse, eight gay male friends hash out their passions, resentments and fears over the course of three summer weekends. The house belongs to Gregory, a successful Broadway choreographer now approaching middle age, who fears he is losing his creativity. Each of the guests at the house is connected to Gregory’s work in one way or another, from his costume designer to business consultants. Flirtations, infidelity, AIDS, truth-telling, and soul-searching mix questions about life and death with skinny-dipping and a wild dress rehearsal of Swan Lake in drag. The New York Times, wrote: "It's utterly contemporary; its one-liners are sometimes hysterical and are slammed home with style; it has genuine pathos that's only slightly tinged with sentimentality." ZSC presents Love! Valour! Compassion! from April 27 through May 19 at the Plaza Theater at the BCA.
