Now Playing Onstage in Rhode Island - Week of 1/12/2014 ARSENIC AND OLD LACE
The Community Players
It's murder most funny as the homicidal Brewster sisters take to relieving the loneliness of old men by inviting them in for a nice glass of homemade elderberry wine which happens to be laced with arsenic, strychnine, and "just a pinch" of cyanide. This farcical black comedy revolves around their nephew Mortimer, as he debates whether to go through with his wedding since his family also includes a brother who believes he is Teddy Roosevelt, and a murderous brother who has received plastic surgery performed by Dr. Einstein. A lively comic masterpiece.

2nd Story Theatre
Sure, this furiously funny, savagely snide family is hilarious as they kick the ego out of one another. But look at them close and you're likely to find an intimate mirror of your own frightened self. Razor-sharp, black comedy perfection.

Now Playing Onstage in Rhode Island - Week of 1/12/2014 THE BIG MEAL
Gamm Theatre
Somewhere in America in a suburban chain restaurant on an average night, young people Sam and Nicole meet for a drink. Sparks fly, setting in motion the extraordinary tale of five generations of an ordinary family with the moments, both mundane and milestone, that make a life. Just eight actors at one table morph into multiple characters over nearly 80 years, displaying their shared DNA, humanity and humor. In the spirit of Thornton Wilder's plays (Our Town, The Long Christmas Dinner), The Big Meal is stunningly ambitious, big-hearted and richly satisfying. Reservations recommended!
