'night, Mother  -by: Marsha Norman - October 20 -November 5, 2017

Directed by: Scott Lilly

The scene is the living room/kitchen of a small house on an isolated country road, which is shared by Jessie and her mother. Jessie's father is dead; her loveless marriage ended in divorce; her absent son is a petty thief and ne'er-do-well; her last job didn't work out and, in general, her life is stale and unprofitable. As the play begins Jessie asks for her father's service revolver and calmly announces that she intends to kill herself. At first her mother refuses to take her seriously, but as Jessie sets about tidying the house and making lists of things to be looked after, her sense of desperate helplessness begins to build. In the end, with the inexorability of genuine tragedy, she can only stand by, stunned and unbelieving, as Jessie quietly closes and locks her bedroom door and ends her profound unhappiness in one fatal, stunning and deeply disturbing moment—a moment never to be forgotten by those who have witnessed, and come to understand, her plight.

The Savannah Disputation - By: Evan Smith - November 11 - November 27, 2016

Directed by: Carol Fenstermacher -  Stage Manager: Laura Spell

Two elderly sisters forget all about southern charm when a young door-to-door evangelist comes knocking. This theological comedy blends Smith's trademark sharpness of wit and depth of character, while telling a story in which a crisis of faith arises when seemingly similar beliefs are discovered to be worlds apart."The theological back-and-forth shines a light on the combatants' personalities, so we get a glimpse into, if not the souls, then at least the hearts and minds of four people who are secretly grappling with doubt, fear, loneliness, and regret about paths not taken. Along the way, there are plenty of laughs…In other words, faith is a complicated business—and even sometimes, as DISPUTATION shows, a funny business, too. Starring:Karen Anglin as Melissa
Karen Ezrine as Mary, Erin Laughlin as Margaret, and Kenneth Ruisi as Father Murphy

You Can't Take It With You - A Comedy by Moss Hart & Geo S. Kaufman -

February 10 - February 26, 2017

Directed by: Michael Scanlan

At first the Sycamores seem mad, but it is not long before we realize that if they are mad, the rest of the world is madder. In contrast to these delightful people are the unhappy Kirbys. The plot shows how Tony, attractive young son of the Kirbys, falls in love with Alice Sycamore and brings his parents to dine at the Sycamore home on the wrong evening. The shock sustained by the Kirbys, who are invited to eat cheap food, shows Alice that marriage with Tony is out of the question. The Sycamores, however, though sympathetic to Alice, find it hard to realize her point of view. Meantime, Tony, who knows the Sycamores are right and his own people wrong, will not give her up, and in the end Mr. Kirby is converted to the happy madness of the Sycamores, particularly since he happens in during a visit by an ex-Grand Duchess, earning her living as a waitress. No mention has as yet been made of the strange activities of certain members of the household engaged in the manufacture of fireworks; nor of the printing press set up in the parlor; nor of Rheba the maid and her friend Donald; nor of Grandpa's interview with the tax collector when he tells him he doesn't believe in the income tax.
One of the most popular and successful plays of modern times.

Clever Little Lies -  By: Joe DiPietro - April 21 - May 7, 2017

Directed by: Brett Marston

CLEVER LITTLE LIES, the outrageous new comedy of sex, love and secrets. For the first time since his acclaimed record-breaking run of I LOVE YOU, YOU’RE PERFECT, NOW CHANGE,  by Tony Award® winner JOE DiPIETRO.
A mother always knows when something is wrong. When Alice notices her beloved husband Bill has returned home on edge after a tennis match with their son, she grows suspicious and springs into action. Determined to piece together the puzzle, she invites her son, Bill, Jr.and daughter-in-law, Jane over for drinks and dessert. Sidesplitting chaos ensues as Alice digs for the truth, resulting in even more honesty than anyone expected. Shattering and hilarious, CLEVER LITTLE LIES is a story of long-term love and marriage… for better… and for worse.
