We are very excited to introduce our Season 6 lineup starting in October 2013.
“Trying” by Joanna Glass, October 18, 19, 25 & 26, 2013 at 8pm.
A Young woman is employed to assist the renowned Francis Biddle, former Attorney-General under F.D.R., as he catalogues his life’s work, but whose preoccupations are increasingly of a personal nature…the loss of his son and the failure to know his own father. Based on the playwright’s actual experience, “Trying” has been hailed as “Beautifully written, delicate and engaging” (Globe & Mail), “exquisitely literate, moving and compelling” (Variety), “a warm, wonderful play of generational reconciliation” (N.Y. Daily News). “Trying” reunites the cast of Season 4’s “Educating Rita”: John McCarthy and Hilary Fennell.
“The Odd Couple” (female version) by Neil Simon, February 8 & 15, 2014 at 8pm, and February 9 & 16, 2014 at 2pm.
Unger and Madison are at it again! Florence Unger and Olive Mdison that is, in Neil Simon’s hilarious contemporary comic classic. Gone are the poker party and Pidgeon sisters. Instead: Trivial Pursuit and the Constanzuela brothers. But the hilarity remains the same!
“Deathtrap” by Ira Levin, May 2, 3, 9 & 10, 2014 at 8pm.
Sidney Bruhl, a (once) successful writer of Broadway thrillers, is facing a string of box office duds when he receives a script from an admiring young writer, seeking his comments. Sidney recognizes a potential hit and, if his scheme succeeds, an opportunity to revive his own floundering career. Thereafter, the suspense mounts steadily as the plot begins to twist and turn, all with an abundance of thrills and laughter. “Two-thirds thriller and one-third a devilishly clever comedy” (Cue Magazine).
