George Orwell's satire on the perils of Stalinism has proved magnificently long-lived as a parable about totalitarianism anywhere and has given the world at least one immortal phrase: "Some are more equal than others." The animals on a farm drive out their master and take over and run the farm for themselves. The experiment is successful, except that someone has to take the deposed farmer's place. Leadership devolves upon the pigs, which are cleverer than the rest of the animals. Unfortunately, their character is not equal to their intelligence.

Crimes of the Heart
By: Beth Henley
Jan. 30-Feb. 2
Beth Henley's Crimes of the Heart is the story of three sisters whose lives are steeped in tragedy, but somehow permeate joy. The Magrath sisters are all brought together again when Babe, the youngest of the three, shoots her husband in the stomach. When she is asked her reasoning she says, she didn’t like his looks. This is a play of opposites; the wise suffer from ignorance, the young submit unknown knowledge. You will laugh at tragedy and find wisdom in humor. And the best part of it all? It all takes place in the heart of Mississippi.
