10 X 25 - An all-commissioned one-act festival of ten minute plays by 25 extraordinary playwrights who have been produced there since 1985, including David Auburn, Jez Butterworth, John Guare, Tina Howe, Craig Lucas, David Mamet and Sam Shepard.

La vida en los Esclavos Unidos - With outstanding humor, Saulo García’s La vida en los Esclavos Unidos (Life in the United Slaves) touches on themes such as the financial crisis, healthcare in the U.S.A., immigrants’ jobs and the lifelong trauma left after the interview for a visa at the U.S. Embassy. The production uses modern video projections to bridge the different episodes and themes. Presented in Spanish only; no live translation available.

The Meltdown - Ten middle aged co-workers as they enjoy what they think will be just another night out, each one making an attempt to escape the woes they left in their lives, past and present.

Murrow's Boys - "I'm standing on a rooftop looking out over London." With these words Edward R. Murrow and the daring band of journalists he gathered made broadcast history during the Blitz. Murrow and the "boys" (which included one girl) literally created the field of broadcast journalism by bringing the story of WWII home to Americans. The Irondale Ensemble's new devised theater piece uses the words and adventures of these intrepid reporters to investigate the questions: Is news important today, where do we get it, and why should it matter?
