In Pimm's Mission, a mystery unfolds in real time and flashbacks in the aftermath of an explosion that destroys the headquarters of a major pharmaceutical company in New York. As FBI Agent Staats tries to piece together what happened with his only witness, Robert Pimm, we move back and forth in time to discover whether Pimm, and his friend Thomas - a disgruntled employee of the same company - had anything to do with the disaster.

Jessica Hecht, Ken Leung, Denis O’Hare and Phil Proctor
For years Oberon Theatre and its members have been friends and colleagues of Austin Pendleton. This culminated in the critical success of Christopher Stetson Boal's play ORDER by that was directed by Austin.
Finally, we took the time to pay tribute to one of the most important players in the American theatre scene. Austin smoothly transitions from Broadway to Off and Off Off Broadway, from blockbuster to indie film in a way few can emulate.
