    Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

    By Edward Albee

    Directed by Andy Leahy

    Performance Dates: March 10 thru 26, 2023

    George, a professor at a small college, and his wife, Martha, have just returned home, drunk from a Saturday night party. Martha announces, amidst general profanity, that she has invited a young couple—an opportunistic new professor at the college and his shatteringly naïve new bride—to stop by for a nightcap. When they arrive the charade begins. The drinks flow and suddenly inhibitions melt. It becomes clear that Martha is determined to seduce the young professor, and George couldn't care less. But underneath the edgy banter, which is crossfire between both couples, lurks an undercurrent of tragedy and despair.

    Produced in arrangement with Concord Theatricals

    THE ALIBIS

    Director: Mr. John T. Hanaway

    When eccentric billionaire J. Leslie Arlington is murdered, a clueless detective finds the suspects are all reluctant to admit their alibis... because they were all committing other ridiculous crimes at the time. You never know what's coming next when your suspects include disgruntled chefs, teen detectives, and vengeful divas, but one things for certain: every alibi is absolutely absurd.

    ​PERFORMANCE DATES: APRIL 14TH, 15TH, AND 16TH

    The Revolutionists:

    A comedy, a quartet, a revolutionary dream fugue, a true story

    By Lauren Gunderson

     

    Directed by Linda Pauli

    Performance Dates: June 2-18, 2023

    The Revolutionist is a new play about four very real badass women who lived boldly in France during the French Revolution's Reign of Terror.

     

    Playwright Olympe de Gouges, assassin Charlotte Corday, former queen (and fan of ribbons) Marie Antoinette, and Haitian rebel Marianne Angelle hang out, murder Marat, and try to beat back the extremist insanity in 1793 Paris.  This grand and dream-tweaked comedy is about violence and legacy, art and activism, feminism and terrorism, compatriots and chosen sisters, and how we actually go about changing the world. It’s a true story. Or total fiction. Or a play about a play. Or a raucous resurrection…that ends in a song and a scaffold.

    The Revolutionists:

    A comedy, a quartet, a revolutionary dream fugue, a true story

    By Lauren Gunderson

     

    Directed by Linda Pauli

    Performance Dates: June 2-18, 2023

    The Revolutionist is a new play about four very real badass women who lived boldly in France during the French Revolution's Reign of Terror.

     

    Playwright Olympe de Gouges, assassin Charlotte Corday, former queen (and fan of ribbons) Marie Antoinette, and Haitian rebel Marianne Angelle hang out, murder Marat, and try to beat back the extremist insanity in 1793 Paris.  This grand and dream-tweaked comedy is about violence and legacy, art and activism, feminism and terrorism, compatriots and chosen sisters, and how we actually go about changing the world. It’s a true story. Or total fiction. Or a play about a play. Or a raucous resurrection…that ends in a song and a scaffold.
