OUR LADIES OF PERPETUAL SUCCOUR
Yale Repertory Theater
6/10-6/25/2016
Named by The Guardian as one of the top ten stage plays in the U.K. last year, the delightfully raucous “Our Ladies of Perpetual Succour” is produced by the National Theatre of Scotland and adapted by Lee Hall (“Billy Elliot”) from the cult novel The Sopranos by Alan Warner. An exhilarating musical play that is both hilariously funny and poignant, is about six schoolgirls on the cusp of change. Love, lust, pregnancy, and death all spiral out of control in a single day when they venture to Edinburgh for a singing competition. With a soundtrack of classical music and 70s pop rock, featuring music by Handel, Bach, Bob Marley, and Electric Light Orchestra, “Our Ladies” is a life-affirming piece of musical theater.

NO SEX PLEASE WE'RE BRITISH
Connecticut Cabaret Theatre
5/13-6/25/2016
A young bride who lives above a bank with her husband, who is the assistant manager, innocently sends a mail order off for some Scandinavian glassware. What comes is Scandinavian pornography. The plot revolves around what is to be done with the veritable floods of pornography, photographs, books, films, and eventually girls that threaten to engulf this happy couple. The matter is considerably complicated by the man's mother, his boss, a visiting bank inspector, a police superintendent, and a muddled friend who does everything wrong in his reluctant efforts to set everything right, all of which works up to a hilarious ending.

Contains adult themes and strong language. *Show Dates: June 10-26 *Show Times: Fridays & Saturdays at 8:00 PM / Sundays at 2:00 PM *Ticket Prices: $25 for VIP / $19 for General Seating (Student & Senior Discounts Available) *Purchase www.cheneyhall.org/purchase or (860) 647-9824
