Don’t Dress For Dinner

by Marc Camoletti, Robin Hawdon

January 17th - March 3rd

Adults $40.00

Students $25.00

Bernard is planning a romantic weekend with his chic Parisian mistress in his charming converted French farmhouse, whilst his wife, Jacqueline, is away. He has arranged for a cordon bleu cook to prepare gourmet delights, and has invited his best friend, Robert, along too to provide the alibi. It’s foolproof; what could possibly go wrong? Well…. suppose Robert turns up not realizing quite why he has been invited. Suppose Robert and Jacqueline are secret lovers, and consequently determined that Jacqueline will NOT leave for the weekend. Suppose the cook has to pretend to be the mistress and the mistress is unable to cook. Suppose everyone’s alibi gets confused with everyone else’s. An evening of hilarious confusion ensues as Bernard and Robert improvise at breakneck speed.

The performance is two hours including an intermission.

Play On!

This is the hilarious story of a theater group trying desperately to put on a play (Murder Most Foul) in spite of maddening interference from a haughty authoress who keeps revising the script. Act I is a rehearsal of the dreadful show; Act II is the near disastrous dress rehearsal, and the final act is the actual performance in which anything that can go wrong does.

Beau Jest

by James Sherman

May 23rd - July 7th

James Sherman’s warmhearted comedy Beau Jest tells the story of Sarah Goldman, who doesn’t think her traditional Jewish parents will respond favorably to her boyfriend, a gentile guy named Chris Cringle. So what’s a nice girl to do but create a fictional Jewish doctor as her imaginary beau and hire a male escort to play him in front of the family? The problem is, her charade is a little too successful and Sarah starts falling for the fake! This sweet romantic comedy was an Off-Broadway success and also spawned a 2008 movie version starring Lainie Kazan.

Adults $40

A Kind Of Love Story

by Jenelle Riley

July 25th - September 8th

This hilarious and heartfelt play both skewers and pays homage to the romantic comedy genre. Mark is a nice guy who never gets the girl, while Ally can’t seem to shake the world’s worst boyfriend. Both have built their romantic ideals on Disney heroes, fairy tales, and Cameron Crowe movies. They’re perfect for each other, but there’s just one problem: they’ve never met. As we follow their overlapping lives, we see all the ways these two are true soulmates, and wait for the moment they will find each other… if they find each other.

Mark and Ally are made for each other, but they just can’t seem to find one another. A Kind of Love Story tells their love story over several chapters, overseen by an omniscient narrator who tells us all about the two. Mark is stuck on the girl that got away: his best friend’s wife, Diane. Ally can’t seem to shake her terrible boyfriend, Max, who won’t commit. At several points, we think Mark and Ally will connect— Mark’s co-worker Lucy suggests he go out with her roommate (who we later learn is Ally). The two connect online, but their planned meeting is thwarted. Though they never speak, a chance encounter in a movie theater urges them both to take charge of their lives… and might finally lead them to one another.
