The Member of the Wedding
by Carson McCullers
November 17 - December 9, 2017
The Vortex, 2307 Manor Road
Classic Drama. As funny as it is touching and heart-warming, 12-year-old tomboy Frankie is coming of age in a small Southern town in the 1940s. She is a troubled adolescent who dreams of escape from her seemingly hopeless environment and is befriended by her loving housekeeper confidant and by her younger cousin. A mid-century look at attitudes on racial and sexual identity with lessons that can be applied to society today.
When We Are Married by J.B. Priestley
January 12 - February 2, 2018
Trinity Street Theater
Comedy. The Helliwells, the Parkers and the Soppitts are highly respected pillars of their community ... but not for much longer. Married on the same day in the same chapel, they gather to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary. The celebrations are short-lived when they discover the vicar wasn't licensed and they are actually not married. In fact, they have been living in sin for 25 years.
by Steven Dietz
March 23 - April 14, 2018
Santa Cruz Center for Culture
Thriller. Just when you thought you'd heard every crazy 9/11 conspiracy theory, a guy walks into a bar and orders two beers, one for himself and one for his absent buddy. Yes, it sounds like the set-up for a joke, but with his chilling play, the prolific Steven Dietz has something darker and more sobering in mind. There, inside the walls of this crumbling New York tavern, a young couple find themselves caught up in what might be the biggest conspiracy of all.
Summer Shorts. An evening of short plays by Christopher Durang, or another American playwright.
