Where the Mountain Meets the Moon

January 26 – February 18, 2024

A Magical odyssey, Where the Mountain Meets the Moon weaves rich folklore into captivating adventure.

Young Minli lives with her parents near Fruitless Mountain, surviving on the meager fare they can produce. Inspired by the rich tales her father tells (and by magical goldfish), Minli determines she will find the Old Man of the Moon who, it is said, knows the secret of good fortune. On her quest she encounters royalty, dragons, and several more stories, from which she learns what true good fortune really is. Based on the 2010 Newbery Honors book, this “fantasy crossed with Chinese folklore,” is a beautifully-told Wizard of Oz riff with a huge heart.

Age recommendation: 5+. This play has a couple of small moments of peril. It is highly theatrical, and incorporates puppets, dance, masks, and more.

Run time: An hour and 30 minutes with a 15-minute intermission

Black laundresses in Atlanta led a strike weeks before the International Cotton Exposition came to town.

The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane

September 13–17, 2023 | On Tour September 20-October 8, 2023

Heartwarming play, The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane, follows a cherished toy's transformative voyage of love.

Everyone’s favorite vain and haughty china rabbit is back on the Synchronicity stage - for one-week only before going on tour! His vest is buttoned tight and his gold pocket watch is set, and he doesn’t need anyone.

Or so he thinks. Before he knows it, he will battle the high seas, pass through the hands of a fisherman, befriend a happy hobo, and comfort a sick child on his not-so-planned adventure to find his way home.

Based on Kate DiCamillo’s award-winning novel, and adapted by Dwayne Hartford, The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane embarks on an unexpected magical journey to discover the transformative powers of love.

Home, I'm Darling

October 6–29, 2023

Written by an Olivier Award Winner

“Laura Wade’s superb new play” - The Stage

“An amusing, affecting, inspiring evening of soft gingham and hard truths” - The Times

“Laura Wade’s sharp satire is a fizzing drama of gender, homes and housework” - Time Out

The Southeastern Premiere!

Everything is perfect for Judy and Johnny - the house is tidy, food is on the table, and Judy’s dress is perfectly pressed when she greets Johnny at the door, martini in hand.

It is the 1950s and life is ordered just right.

Or is it? Quickly the edges of this perfect life start to unravel, and things are not quite what they seem. Gender roles, relationships, and more are examined, explored and exploded in this dark comedy about sex, cake and the quest to be the perfect 1950s couple.
