Now Playing Onstage in Dayton - Week of 1/19/2014 THE SUBJECT WAS ROSES
Dayton Theatre Guild
This American Classic is about a dysfunctional family (before it became a common description) focusing on the return of a son from WWII. Shocking and disappointing his mother with his cursing and drinking, he seems to please his father just by having survived. His parents appear to be happy, but slowly the facade pulls away to reveal emotional wounds and problems yet to be resolved. The son feels responsible but is unable to fix the pain between his parents.

Now Playing Onstage in Dayton - Week of 1/19/2014 TILL BETH DO US PART
Beavercreek Community Theater
In this side-splitting comic romp about marriage, career-driven Suzannah Hayden needs more help on the home front than she's getting from her husband, Gibby. Enter Beth Bailey, Suzannah's newly-hired assistant, a gregarious, highly-motivated daughter of the South. To Suzannah's delight, Beth explodes into the Hayden household and whips it into an organized, well-run machine. This couldn't have happened at a better time for Suzannah, since her boss, Celia Carmichael, the C.E.O. of Carmichael's Chocolates, is flying in soon for an important make-or-break business dinner. Gibby grows increasingly wary as Beth insinuates herself into more and more aspects of their lives. When he realizes it's Suzannah's career Beth is really after, Gibby sets out to save his marriage aided by Suzannah's best friend, Margo. Their effort to stop Beth at any cost sets up the wildly funny climax in which things go uproariously awry just as Suzannah's boss arrives for that all-important dinner.
