2018 SUMMER SEASON
The season opened in June with our Patrons’ Pick winner, The Love List by Norm Foster. In this very funny and thought-provoking comedy, Leon and Bill concoct a list of attributes of the ideal woman - the top ten best qualities in a mate. When this allegedly "Ideal Woman" actually arrives on the scene, the men quickly learn that their list could use a few revisions. The Love List opened Friday June 8, runs through June 22nd. Shows June 8, 9, 10, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 20, 21, 22 (no shows Mondays or Tuesdays)
Our Patrons’ Pick race was so close we have decided to present the runner up, Marjorie Prime by Jordan Harrison, as our second play of the season. In this 2015 Pulitzer Prize Finalist, it’s the age of artificial intelligence, and 85-year-old Marjorie —whose memory is fading — has a handsome new companion who’s programmed to feed the story of her life back to her. This fascinating play explores the mysteries of human identity and the limits — if any — of what technology can replace. Marjorie Prime opens Friday June 29, runs through July 14. Shows June 29, July 1, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14. (no shows June 30 or July 4)
