Now Playing Onstage in Little Rock - Week of 5/04/2014 CRIMES OF THE HEART
Rogers Little Theater
5/2-5/11/2014
The 1986 film adaptation was directed by Bruce Beresford and garnered three Academy Award nominations, including one for Henley for Best Adapted Screenplay. Set in Hazlehurst, Mississippi, the three Magrath sisters have gathered during their grandfather's final hours in the local hospital. Lenny, the oldest sister, is unmarried at thirty and facing diminishing marital prospects; Meg, the middle sister, who quickly outgrew Hazlehurst, is back after a failed singing career on the West Coast; while Babe, the youngest, is out on bail after having shot her husband in the stomach. Their troubles, grave and yet, somehow, hilarious, are highlighted by their priggish cousin, Chick, and by the awkward young lawyer who tries to keep Babe out of jail while helpless not to fall in love with her. In the end the play is the story of how its young characters escape the past to seize the future?but the telling is so true and touching and consistently hilarious that it will linger in the mind long after the curtain has descended.

Now Playing Onstage in Little Rock - Week of 5/04/2014 A STRANGE AND SEPARATE PEOPLE
The Weekend Theater
5/2-5/17/2014
This engrossing three-character drama addresses the struggle for many to accept their homosexuality while adhering to their religious beliefs, in this case those of Orthodox Judaism. The play explores intriguing questions and yields affecting observations as it considers the courage required to make waves in any environment, from the synagogue to the New York State Legislature. An insightful play about the intersection of God's law and man's love, A Strange and Separate People is rich in drama and Jewish tradition. The title comes from comments supposedly made by the late Queen mother, who said she liked the Jews 'very much, but they were a separate people and a strange people'-perhaps in more ways than she ever expected.
