A LIFE IN THE THEATRE

by David Mamet

June 10 - July 10, 2021

"A comedy about the artifice of acting... It is also about the artifice of living... An evening of pure theatre." - The New York Times

"A comic masterpiece." - New York Daily News

The Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Glengarry Glen Ross and Speed-The-Plow takes us into the lives of two actors: John, young and rising into the first flush of his success; the other Robert, older, anxious, and beginning to wane. In a series of short, spare, and increasingly raw exchanges, we see the estrangement of youth from age and the wider, inevitable and endless cycle of life, in and out of the theatre.

THE STANDBY LEAR

by John W. Lowell

August 5 - 28, 2021

A funny, tender new play by John W. Lowell, critically acclaimed and award-winning author of THE LETTERS. The actor playing King Lear has fallen ill. Augie, the understudy, is handed the opportunity to play one of the greatest roles ever written for the stage. Now that the last great opportunity in Augie's long acting career has arrived, is he up to the task, or is it too late?

BLOOMSDAY

by Steven Dietz

September 2 - October 9, 2021

An old-fashioned, new-fangled Irish romance from one of America’s most prolific playwrights. Robert returns to Dublin to reunite with Cait, the woman who captured his heart during a James Joyce literary tour 35 years ago. Dancing backwards through time, the older couple retraces their steps to discover their younger selves. Through youthful Robbie and Caithleen, they relive the unlikely, inevitable events that brought them – only briefly – together. This time-traveling love story blends wit, humor, and heartache into a buoyant, moving appeal for making the most of the present before it becomes the past.

A story filled with sweet charm…Dietz’s convention of mixing the past with the present…works beautifully and when mixed with his signature rich characters makes for a wonderfully engaging time…there’s an honest and sobering realism to the piece that takes this beyond a simple romantic comedy and places it in the realm of a tragic love. - Memeteria.com
