Our Town by Thornton Wilder (1938 Pulitzer Prize for Drama)
Described by Edward Albee as “…the greatest American play ever written,” the story follows the small town of Grover’s Corners through three acts: “Daily Life,” “Love and Marriage,” and “Death and Eternity.” Narrated by a stage manager and performed with minimal props and sets, audiences follow the Webb and Gibbs families as their children fall in love, marry, and eventually – in one of the most famous scenes in American theatre – die. “No play ever moved me so deeply.” —Alexander Woolcott, The New Yorker
Performances October 5-8
The Heidi Chronicles by Wendy Wasserstein (1989 Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award)
In a romp through the last half of the 20th century, Heidi Holland tries to find her bearings in a rapidly changing world. She watches her friends of the 1960s move from idealism and political radicalism through militant feminism and, eventually, back to the materialism they once rejected. Can her liberation be achieved? Only if she can be true to herself. Caution: Strong Language.“Not many plays manage Heidi’s almost continuous laughter while forcing the audience to examine its preconceptions” —Variety.
Performances November 9-12
The Rocky Horror Show by Richard O'Brien
One fateful night, Brad Majors and his fiancée, Janet Weiss — a wholesome, well-behaved, utterly normal young couple in love — innocently set out to visit an old professor. A thunderstorm and a flat-tire force them to seek help at the castle of Dr. Frank ’N’ Furter, an alien, transvestite scientist with a manic genius and insatiable libido. A loving homage to the classic B sci-fi film and horror genres with an irresistible rock’n’roll score, The Rocky Horror Show is a hilarious, wild ride that no audience will soon forget. Mature Content Warning: Not recom-mended for audiences 12 and younger.
