7pm Reception     8pm Performances $8; Members, $5.

"Thinking Outside the Box," pays homage to the notion that theatre encourages us to think differently, to understand the world in a multiplicity of ways, and to see new perspectives on life and living that gets little air time in the "little boxes" that define our culture today.  This project was created under the artistic guidance of Falcon Repertory Theatre, Inc., a not-for-profit theatre and film company of Fairfield County, CT.
