    Norman Davenport feels he was born in the wrong century.

    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.

    In Quartet, we meet Cecily, Reggie, and Wilfred, residents in a home for retired opera singers, as they prepare for the annual Verdi concert fundraiser. 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?

jekyllby Jeffrey Hatcher

October 1, 2, 7, 8, 9*, 14, 15, 16*, 2010

Henry Jekyll, a respected member of London society is pre-engaged to Muriel Carew. Professionally, he is a medical doctor, scientist and academician. He theorizes that in each man is a good side and an evil side and uses himself as the subject to test his hypothesis. His evil side, Mr. Hyde, escapes and terrorizes party-girl Ivy Pierson. Jekyll, aware of Hyde's goings-on, stops his experiments because of the suffering he has caused. What Jekyll is unaware of is how ingrained Hyde is in Jekyll's life.

ourtownby Thornton Wilder

November 26, 27,
December 2, 3, 4*, 9, 10, 11*, 2010

Grover's Corners, New Hampshire. Small, rural, out-of-the-way from 1901 to 1913. Life is pretty much the same for small towns in America. No apparent threat of global conflict or war...Echoes of classic Greek drama...And like its Greek ancestors, Our Town concerns itself with the continuing cycle of life, humankind's nearest understanding of eternity.

lungfishby Gary Marshall & Lowell Ganz

February 11, 12, 17, 18, 19*, 
24, 25, 26*, 2011

A blind and bitter college professor meets a street wise young woman who volunteers to read to him in the hospital. The clash of intellect and wit takes the two from animosity and fear to friendship and understanding. Both come to their relationship with questions, but will they leave with hopeful answers leave with hopeful answers?

selfhelpby Norm Foster

May 6, 7, 12, 13, 14*, 19, 20, 21*, 2011

Married couple of second-rate theatre actors cast themselves as nationally renowned self-help gurus. Their lives unravel in a farce as they try to conceal a body and hold on to their falsely won fame. Another great play from one of Canada's best loved writers of situational comedy.
