Maggie’s Getting Married by Norm Foster
Directed by Doree Austin
Performance Dates – Sept 19 – 21 and Sept 26 – 28
Maggie Duncan is finally getting married!
It’s the night before Maggie’s wedding to Russell, a realtor who wooed her in a whirlwind romance. Unfortunately, she’s the only one excited about it! Her father is afraid that his baby girl may be marrying the wrong man for the wrong reasons. Her bombshell, boyfriend-stealing sister, Wanda, is home for the big day with her latest boytoy. And her hostess-with-the-mostest mother is trying to keep the wedding on track while pondering her own post-wedding future as part of a couple whose passion has diminished from a forest fire to a “small grassfire.”
As everyone gets progressively tipsier following Maggie and Russell’s rehearsal dinner, Wanda comes to the sobering realization that she and Russell are more intimately acquainted than Maggie knows.
The Book Club Play by Karen Zacarias
Directed by Evan Sposato
Performance Dates – November 14-16 and November 21-23
There really were book clubs before Oprah’s. Really.
Ana likes everyone to think her life is perfect; from her adoring husband and ideal job, to her greatest passion: Book Club. As hostess, she rules the group with an iron fist in a velvet-cake glove. BUT she does allow everyone to take a turn selecting books and leading the discussion, so it’s the perfect Book Club. Or is it?
Now, the world will know about her perfect Book Club, because Ana has signed them up to be part of a documentary.
As the months and books go by, the group’s dynamic is shaken to the core when Alex, a new “probationary” member, threatens Ana’s dictatorship and, the unblinking eye of the camera catches EVERYTHING!
A delightful play about life, love, literature, and the side-splitting results when friends start reading between the lines.
Good People by David Lindsay-Abaire
Directed by Joe Klapatch
March 13-15 and March 20-22, 2015
Welcome to Southie, a Boston neighborhood where a night on the town means a few rounds of bingo, where this month’s paycheck covers last month’s bills, and where Margie Walsh has just been fired from yet another job. Facing eviction with her adult, developmentally-disabled daughter and scrambling to catch a break, Margie thinks an old fling who’s made it out of Southie might be her ticket to a fresh new start. But is this apparently self-made man secure enough to face his humble beginnings? Margie is about to risk what little she has left to find out. With his signature humorous glow, Lindsay-Abaire explores the struggles, shifting loyalties and unshakeable hopes that come with having next to nothing in America.
“David Lindsay-Abaire pays his respects to his old South Boston neighborhood with this tough and tender play about the insurmountable class divide between those who make it out of this blue-collar Irish neighborhood and those who find themselves left behind. The scrappy characters have tremendous appeal, and the moral dilemma they grapple with—is it strength of character or just a few lucky breaks that determines a person’s fate?—holds special significance in today’s harsh economic climate.” —Variety
Next Fall by Geoffrey Nauffts
Directed by Michael Jinbo
Performance Dates – May 29-31, June 5-7
Luke believes in God. Adam believes in everything else. Next Fall portrays the ups and downs of this unlikely couple’s five-year relationship with sharp humor and unflinching honesty. When an accident changes everything, Adam must turn to Luke’s family and friends for support… and answers. Next Fall paints a beautiful and funny portrait of modern romance, asking the hard questions about commitment, love and faith.
“The funniest heartbreaker in town! Next Fall embodies something theatergoers have been sorely missing, perhaps without knowing it, for years. A smart, sensitive, immensely appealing and utterly contemporary New York comedy.” —The New York Times
