Past Events - 2009-2010 Season

The Clandestine Marriage

Oct. 2-18, 2009  

Updated to the "roaring 20's", this riotous 18th century comedy is the improbable tale of an aristocrat desperate to raise cash by marrying his nephew to the older daughter of a wealthy merchant. Meanwhile the nephew has fallen in love with the younger sister….but she is already secretly married to the nephew's best friend. Mix in an interfering aunt, a jealous sister, a social climbing father, an aging lothario and his calculating nephew, and you have a wild farce where everyone is in love with someone...just not the right one.

Playwrights:   David Garrick and George Coleman
 

Underneath the Lintel

Nov. 6-22, 2009

A ticket from a Chinese laundry from 1913, and a German train log from 1912 are just a few of the clues a mystified librarian has to go on in his quest to discover the miscreant who returned a much-mistreated Baedeker’s Travel Guide Book to his library 113 years overdue.

"It’s a good thing that Plato is dead; because
Glen Berger gives the philosopher a run for his money
with the drama Underneath the Lintel!"

Loose Knit

Feb. 19 - Mar. 7, 2010

Once a week in New York five women gather to knit, as the sweaters pile up, their lives fall apart… Do we really need the opposite sex to make our lives work? This is just one of the questions the five women in Theresa Rebeck's "Loose Knit" consider as they get together weekly to knit and decompress from their hectic New York lives. The group begins to unravel. Can the women pick up all the dropped stitches and knit their friendships back together again?
