    John Lennon was shot and killed on December 8, 1980 in front of his home, the Dakota. The following day, New Yorkers gathered in spontaneous vigils to mourn and pay tribute. McLure builds his play from the interactions of strangers, at times humorous, moving, or even menacing, as they struggle to understand the larger significance of the event.

When Jean, Reggie’s ex arrives at the residence, she disrupts these preparations and, ever the diva, refuses to sing. At times poignant, very witty, and often hilarious, the show must go on…or perhaps not?

Feb. 8, 9, 14, 15, 16*, 21, 22, 23*, 2013

Directed by: Tim Denis

Barry Champlain, Cleveland’s controversial radio host, is on the air doing what he does best: insulting the pathetic souls who call in the middle of the night to sound off. Tomorrow, Barry’s show is going into national syndication, and his producer is afraid Barry will say something that will offend the sponsors. This, of course, makes Barry even more outrageous. Funny, moving, offbeat, and totally entrancing, Talk Radio draws you into the heart of its fringe world.

 

1812

 

by Robert Knuckle

Nov. 23, 24, 29, 30, Dec. 1*, 6, 7, 8*, 2012

Directed by: Willard Boudreau

While the structure is fictional, the facts are historically accurate. The audience is invited to witness a courtroom drama that simulates a public inquiry into the War of 1812. Opposing counsel examine witnesses including President Madison, Chief Tecumseh, and Generals Brock, Sheaffe, Hull and Harrison. Politicians, soldiers, and civilians report on key battles, and the causes and outcomes of the war. The drama builds as exchanges become increasingly heated.

Shirley Valentine is a comedy about getting lost to find yourself. The heroine is an ordinary middle class English housewife. As she prepares chips and egg for dinner, she ruminates on her life and tells the wall about her husband, her children, her past, and an invitation from a girlfriend to join her on a holiday in Greece to search for romance and adventure. She does escape to Greece, has a hilarious and engaging adventure, and changes her life.

A Life in the Theatre

 by David Mamet

Apr. 26, 27, May 2, 3, 4*, 9, 10, 11*, 2013

Directed by: Mike Wierenga

A Life in the Theatre is a comedy that deals not only with two actors, but also with teacher/pupil, mentor/disciple, and the rites of passage in our lifetimes. Mamet 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 endless cycle of life, in and out of the theatre.
