And Miss Reardon Drinks A Little

By Paul Zindel

Dramatic Comedy 

Directed by O. P. Hadlock 

August 23 through September 22, 2019

Their father having deserted them in their childhood,  the three Reardon sisters have grown up in a house of women, dominated by their recently deceased mother. But time has erased the tender closeness of girlhood; one sister has married and cut herself off; another has begun to drink more than she should; and the third,  after a scandalous incident at the school where she teaches, is on the brink of madness. When the married sister comes to dinner to press the need for committing her sibling to an institution, all the pathos, humor and honesty of the play combine with overwhelming effect.

By Yasmina Reza translated by Christopher Hampton

Drama 

Directed by Tyler Hewes

God of Carnage relates an evening in the lives of two couples, residents of a tony  Brooklyn neighborhood, who meet to discuss a playground incident. Alan and  Annette’s son hit Michael and Veronica’s son in the face with a stick, resulting in two broken teeth.

The couples initially spar against each other, but the men gang up.

The Hollow

By Agatha Christie

 

Mystery

Directed by Keith Anderson

February 28 through March 29, 2020

An unhappy game of romantic follow-the-leader explodes into murder one weekend at The Hollow, home of Sir Henry and Lucy Angkatell, arguably Christie’s finest comic grande dame. Dr. Cristow, the Harley Street lothario, is at the center of the trouble when, assembled in one place, we find his dull but devoted wife, Gerda, his mistress and prominent sculptor, Henrietta and his former lover and Hollywood film star, Veronica. Also visiting are Edward and Midge, whose romantic assertions are likewise thrown into the mix. As the list of romantic associations grows so does the list of potential suspects when Cristow is shot dead. Nearly everyone has a motive, but only one of them did the deed.

Company

By Stephen Sondheim and George Furth

 

Musical

Directed by David  Guthrie

 

April 17 through May 17, 2020

On the night of his 35th birthday, Robert struggles to think of a wish to make as he blows out his birthday candles. The lone bachelor, surrounded by “those good and crazy people”  -- his married friends -- Robert is uncertain whether he should simply be happy with his lot or whether he should wish for his own romantic partner. Over a series of dinner parties, first dates, and thoughtful conversations, Robert attempts to understand the pros and cons of marriage from his diverse and frequently hilarious friends and begins to make sense of his own persistent bachelorhood. Company, Stephen Sondheim’s

groundbreaking modern musical, is a mature, intelligent, and wildly funny look at

relationships, vulnerability, and “being alive.”
