February will bring you two exciting plays.
First up we have The Vagina Monologues by Eve Ensler
This Obie Award-winning play is a whirlwind tour of the forbidden zone and introduces a wildly divergent gathering of female voices. Almost like poetry, each soliloquy reveals a different woman's experience with topics like sex, love, tenderness, embarrassment, cruelty, pain, and pleasure. This show will run for one night only in early February.
Following closely on its heels will be, She Kills Monsters by Qui Nguyen.
Agnes Evans is a completely average woman who strives to be nothing but average until the day she wishes her life were a little less boring. Her wish, unfortunately, comes true when her family, including her younger sister Tilly, dies in a car crash. As Agnes is cleaning Tilly’s room, she finds a module Tilly had written for Dungeons &Dragons. In order to get closer to the sister she never really knew, Agnes embarks on her own adventure with the help of a Dungeon Master to play the game as Tilly designed. As she delves deeper into her quest, the fantasy world and reality begin to collide and mix as Agnes searches to connect with Tilly and realizes how much of her sister she never knew.
She Kills Monsters allows actors to truthfully represent the LGBTQIA+ community in a show that goes beyond the ‘tragic Hollywood tale of characters discovering their sexuality,” and instead lifts them up and celebrates.
April sees a shift in tone to a hilarious comedy and beloved classic - CLUE by Sandy Rustin
Based on the beloved Paramount movie, this classic whodunit, is sure to entertain.
April’s offering is the Tony Award Winner – Venus in Fur by David Ives.
A young playwright, Thomas, has written an adaptation of the 1870 novel Venus in Fur by Leopold von Sacher-Masoch (after whom the term “masochism” was coined) At the end of a long day in which the actresses Thomas auditions fail to impress him, in walks Vanda, very late and seemingly clueless, but she convinces him to give her a chance. As they perform scenes from Thomas’s play, and Vanda the actor and Vanda the character gradually take control of the audition, the lines between writer, actor, director, and character begin to blur. Vanda is acting . . . or perhaps she sees in Thomas a masochist, one who desires fantasy in “real life” while writing fantasies for a living.
We’re back! Yes, that’s right, July sees the return of Puffs, or Seven Increasingly Eventful Years at a Certain School of Magic and Magic by Matt Cox !
This popular piece was scheduled to be revived on a certain boy wizards birthday this year, but alas, the shut down had other ideas, so, we have moved it to next year. The New York Times proclaims PUFFS, “A FAST-PACED ROMP through the ‘Seven Increasingly Eventful Years at a Certain School of Magic and Magic.’ For POTTERphiliacs who grew up alongside Potter and are eager to revisit that world, ‘PUFFS’ exudes a jovial, winking fondness for all things Harry!”
Many of the original cast will be returning!
Our scary summer series continues in 2021 with our August offering – No Exit by By Jean-Paul Sartre Translated from French by Paul Bowles
Three damned souls, Garcin, Inez, and Estelle are brought to the same room in hell by a mysterious Valet. They had all expected medieval torture devices to punish them for eternity but instead find a plain room furnished in Second Empire style. None of them will admit the reason for their damnation
It's Halloween, and time for us to bring you what we are known for, the scary, edge of your seat show that stays with you long after it’s over. We are going back to a great classic, Dracula by Steven Dietz.
“I want your fear. For your fear, like a current, rushes through your body. Your fear makes your heart pound, it renders your veins rich and full. Your fear hemorrhages deliciously within you.” This new adaptation restores the suspense and seduction of Bram Stoker’s classic novel to the stage. As Count Dracula begins to exert his will upon the residents of London, they try to piece together the clues of his appearances—in a valiant attempt to save themselves from a hideous fate. Rich with both humor and horror, this play paints a wickedly theatrical picture of Stoker’s famous vampire.
