THREE VIEWINGS by Jeffrey Hatcher; Directed by Thomas Gruenewald

Time: the present

Place: a funeral parlor in a small mid-western town

These are dramatic monologues. Each character is a story-teller speaking directly to the audience in the present tense, with intimacy, humor, and candor.

The characters never interact. Therefore rehearsals can be scheduled at the convenience of each actor and the director.

 

TELL-TALE: A monologue

EMIL: A middle-aged man. A mortician in love, whose passion overflows his buttoned-down persona.

 

THE THIEF OF TEARS: A monologue

MAC:  An attractive woman in her forties. A smart, funny woman who is trying to contain a horrible secret.

 

THIRTEEN THINGS ABOUT ED CARPOLOTTI: A monologue

VIRGINIA: A well-dressed woman in her late 50s or 60s. Drive and energy are vital to the play

 

Matinee and evening performances March 17

THESE SHINING LIVES by Melanie Marnich; Directed by Macey Levin

A story of survival.  Based on the true incident of four women who worked in a watch factory in Ottawa, Illinois, the play dramatizes the peril women faced in the workforce in the 1920s, and the lack of concern by businesses for protecting the health of its employees. The four refuse to allow the company that stole their health to destroy their spirits or to imperil those that followed.
