Sylvia, by A.R. Gurney, January 20 – February 12 (Directed by Beulah Vega)
Sylvia is a story about a man (Greg) and his dog (Sylvia). When Greg brings Sylvia home, his wife Kate is less than enthused. She’s already raised her children and her children’s dogs. But what does Sylvia have to say about all this? Fortunately you can find out because Sylvia is able to express her own opinions quite clearly and at times profanely.
Marriage is Murder, by Nick Hall, March 16 – April 8 (Directed by Sylvia D. Jones)
Murder mystery writers Paul and Polly Butler are now divorced, but the opportunity to turn their literary creation into a movie has them writing together again. As they test out various plots involving a variety of lethal schemes, they find that, like murder, marriage is in the details in this funny, fast-paced play.
Norman, Is That You? by Ron Clark & Sam Brobick, May 11 – June 10 (Directed by John Rowan)
Ben’s marriage is in trouble – in fact, his wife has run off to Canada with his brother. Seeking solace, he pays an unannounced visit to his son in NYC and finds him living with another man. It then becomes Ben’s mission to try and straighten out his son. This drama with much comedy is set in the 1970s with costumes, hairstyles and fantastic, familiar music. So come out and shake your groove thing!
Panache, by Don Gordon, July 20 – August 19 (Directed by Jacquelyn Wells)
Wikipedia describes panache as a word of French origin that carries the connotation of a flamboyant manner and reckless courage. Characters Kathleen Trafalgar (wealthy, married, society woman) and Harry Baldwin (bad boy, boozer, artist, fry cook) give us a bit of both in this romantic comedy of two opposites.
