A Child's Christmas in Wales - Adapted from the poem by Dylan Thomas and The Long Christmas Dinner by Thornton Wilder
December 5 - December 24
Celebrate the joy of magic, family, and memories with two short plays for the Christmas holidays:
A Child's Christmas in Wales - Adapted from the poem by Dylan Thomas. Back again for the 2013 Holiday season! Celebrate the magic of Dylan Thomas' childhood Christmas. Featuring youth and adult performers.
The Long Christmas Dinner - This human, tender play journeys the lives of several generations of the Bayard family, and some of their Christmas dinners. It is a serious play lightened with humor of character, containing a moving quality that is both appealing and forceful.
God of Hell by Sam Shepard
February 20 - March 15
Frank and Emma are Wisconsin dairy farmers who live a quiet respectable life until they agree to put up Frank's old friend, a scientist on the run from a secret government project involving plutonium. The play is a surreal allegory--darkly comic--and a thrilling theatrical ride that explores the high cost of complacent political conformity.
"Deliriously entertaining and deeply scary..." Newsday
Alice in Wonderland created by the Manhattan Project under the direction of Andre Gregory
April 10 - May 3
Everyone is familiar with Alice's antic adventures, and they are all here - but with an interesting difference. From the presumed innocence of the original is drawn a caustic and giddy revelation of the human psyche and the dark, unsettling shadows which can linger there. Freud and Jung, Kafka and Dali, all make their presences felt, in a piece of pure theatre that is full of truth, fun, terror, and uncanny pertinence to our own topsy-turvy times.
"Alice is an exemplary instance of how a classic can be make 'new', and one of the extremely rare instances of a book's being turned into a wholly satisfactory theatrical experience...an exciting, absorbing, vertiginous descent into a laughing hell" Time Magazine
