FROM DOOR TO DOOR

Written by James Sherman             Directed by Wendy Cohen

October 10 - Nov 2

A heartwarming, bittersweet comedy about three generations of Jewish-American women. Mary Goodman, a woman of the “greatest generation” is mourning the loss of her husband. Her daughter, Deborah, is encouraging her to move on with a new independence. In a series of scenes between Mary, Deborah, and Mary’s mother, Bessie (whose old-fashioned Jewish values emphasized marriage and homemaking when Mary wanted to pursue her education and her art while waiting to start a family), Mary reflects back on her life as a daughter, wife and mother. A trio of actresses play the three women over the course of sixty-five years. As Mary’s life progresses from childhood to matrimony to motherhood, we see how each successive generation of women lives up to the expectations of the past and makes brave choices about the future. At the play’s end, the three women stand as links in a chain made of faith, love, and understanding.

SUDDENLY LAST SUMMER

A Play by Tennessee Williams
Directed by Abe Daniels

Feb 14 – March 8

Catharine Holly, a poor relation of a prominent New Orleans family, seems to be insane after her cousin Sebastian dies under mysterious circumstances on a trip to Europe. Sebastian's mother, Violet Venable, trying to cloud the truth about her son's homosexuality and death, threatens to lobotomize Catharine for her incoherent utterances relating to Sebastian's demise. Under the influence of a truth serum, Catharine tells the gruesome story of Sebastian's death by cannibalism at the hands of locals whose sexual favors he sought, using Catharine as a device to attract the young men (as he had earlier used his mother). The play is considered one of Williams' starkest and most poetic works

THE WEIR

A Play by Conor McPherson
Directed by Karl Weimer

Coming Spring 2015

In a remote country pub in Ireland, newcomer Valerie arrives and becomes spellbound by an evening of ghostly stories told by the local bachelors who drink there.  With a whiff of sexual tension in the air and the wind whistling outside, what starts out as blarney soon turns dark as the tales drift into the realm of the supernatural.   Then, Valerie reveals a startling story of her own.  Conor McPherson’s The Weir is a haunting evocative evening in the theatre you will never forget.
