October 2-17, 2020    THE MYSTERY OF IRMA VEP:A Penny Dreadful, by Charles Ludlam

     This definitive spoof of Gothic melodramas, recently revived Off-Broadway to raves, is a quick change marathon in which two actors play all the roles. A sympathetic werewolf, a vampire and an Egyptian princess brought to life when her tomb is opened make this a comedy that has everything. 

March 12-27, 2021                ADMISSIONS, by Joshua Harmon  
   Sherri Rosen-Mason is head of the admissions department at a New England prep school, fighting to diversify the student body. Alongside her husband, the school’s headmaster, they’ve largely succeeded in bringing a stodgy institution into the twenty-first century. But when their only son sets his sights on an Ivy League university, personal ambition collides with progressive values, with convulsive results. A no-holds-barred look at privilege, power, and the perils of hypocrisy.

April 30-May 15, 2021      SHE STOOPS TO CONQUER, by Oliver Goldsmith.  

   First performed in 1773, this is a comedy of manners in which, in a polite society setting, the comedy arises from the gap between the characters’ attempts to preserve standards of polite behavior and their true behavior. A complex series of misunderstandings and practical jokes tie the Hardcastle family up in knots which the action proceeds to untangle.
