Love Letters by A.R. Gurney

Directed by Sherry Asch

Performances: January 31, Febuary 1, 7, 8, 13, 14 and 15, 2014 at 8:00pm and February 2, 2014 at 2:00pm

This charming play, a Pulitzer Prize finalist for Drama, is simply staged without a set or music, as Gurney wishes, with no embellishments to distract the viewer /listener from the purity of the written text. 

Andrew and Melissa reveal themselves, warts and all, during the course of this candid, funny, touching (and sometimes exasperating!) correspondence that spans fifty years. 

We are casting three pairs of middle-aged actors of comparable age with no other specific character details than what we learn through their letters.


The Goat, or Who Is Sylvia by Edward Albee

Directed by Maryann Arcoleo-Koltun

Performances: April 11, 12, 18, 19, 24, 25 and 26 at 8:00pm and April 20, 2014 at 2:00pm

Albee believes that passion is something that can neither be controlled, ordained, nor directed to socially acceptable ends.  He is not simply smashing old taboos. Instead he is asking, provocatively, whether love has prescribed boundaries and, if so, who sets them?

·         Stevie: 50-60, Martin's wife, intellectually curious, loving and passionate

·         Ross:  50-60, TV producer, good friend of Martin

The performances are cabaret style. Acting positions are unpaid. For further information, visit or e-mail the theatre at
