Inspired by a real life story, the play examines our insatiable desire for gossip and stimulates ways in which to use our tongues for things nobler and mightier.
The Case of the Spider Ruby — inspired by the epidemic of corporate scandals, this play emphasizes the importance of honesty in the face of temptation and greed. In an ordinary town, the sudden appearance of the legendary “spider ruby” incites everyone’s curiosity and desire. When the ruby disappears, all of the characters are suspects and it is only through the rare quality of integrity that the case is solved. The Wise Woman of Velena – – is based on an old folktale that is claimed by many cultures.  While advertisers prey on young females with the message that their self-worth is determined by the way they look, this musical emphasizes the idea that one should judge another person by their character and not by their appearance.
