Leading Ladies

Our entry in this year’s Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival is a modern farce.  The plot follows two English Shakespearean actors, Jack and Leo, who find themselves down on their luck.  When they hear that an old lady in York, PA is about to die and leave her fortune to her two long lost English nephews, they resolve to pass themselves off as her beloved relatives and get the cash.  The trouble is, when they get to York, they find out that the relatives aren’t nephews, but nieces!  Romantic entanglements abound, especially when Leo falls head-over-petticoat in love with the old lady’s vivacious niece, Meg.

Dark River

The play concerns a failing family business that has inadvertently poisoned the waters.  It transcends mere allegory.  Jones uses pollution as a metaphor for the sins of the fathers.  It has been called an environmental Crime and Punishment.

The Heretic

The play is a black comedy that tackles the divisive issue of climate change and its sceptics.  Set at an English university, Dr. Diane Casell questions the position of science in the global argument and invites us to honestly consider what we think we know.

110 in the Shade

This is N. Richard Nash’s adaptation of his romantic comedy, The Rainmaker.  The plot  focuses on Lizzie Curry, a spinster living on a ranch in the American Southwest and her relationships with local sheriff File, a cautious divorcé who fears being hurt again, and the charismatic con man Bill Starbuck, posing as a rainmaker who promises the locals he can bring relief to the drought-stricken area. 

This production is sponsored in part by the Richard T. Brittingham Musical Theatre Endowed Lectureship.

All Evenings at 7:30 P.M. and Sunday at 2 P.M.
