Curtain Players Theatre
3/21-4/6/2014
The winner of the 1953 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Picnic takes place on Labor Day weekend in the joint backyards of two middle-aged widows. One house belongs to Flo Owens, who lives there with her two young daughters, Madge and Millie, and Rosemary, a boarder who is a spinster school teacher. The other house belongs to Helen Potts, who lives with her elderly invalid mother. Into this female atmosphere comes a young man named Hal Carter, whose animal vitality upsets the entire group. Flo is sensitively wary of the temptations Hal poses for her daughters, but Madge, bored with being merely a beauty, sacrifices her chances for a wealthy marriage for the excitement Hal promises.

Available Light Theatre
3/27-4/12/2014
In a play that reads like a grim parody of AVLT's best works, an ensemble of American actors come together to make a play about the little-known, first genocide of the 20th century. Ever wonder what it would be like to be in the rehearsal room when actors are digging ferociously into their psyches to discover a moment of revelation, or arguing heatedly over a character's motivation? Jackie Sibblies Drury's inventive play wedges the audience between the actors and their art. As comedy turns to sudden tragedy, the characters confront the ways we communicate about race across ethnic boundaries in the 21st century.
