THE LATE CHRISTOPHER BEAN” ... A Timeless Comedy
The third production of the 2015-2016 season at The Stagecrafters, Sidney Howard’s lively screwball comedy, The Late Christopher Bean, will open on Friday, February 5, 2016. The action takes place in a small town in New England around 1932, at the home of one Dr. Milton Haggett and his wife and two daughters, who some years earlier had given room and board to an unknown, penniless, and much derided painter, Christopher Bean. How their one-time good deed unexpectedly turns into the possible money-making opportunity of a lifetime becomes the theme of this hilarious madcap satire on greed and moral frailty. Relevant to this day The New York Times said of the 2009 revival at the ActorsTheater Company in NYC "...It's a play that has remained fresh and funny, proving once again that a strong script is rarely tarnished by time..."
