The Fox On The Fairway

by Ken Ludwig
directed by Jim Balcerek
October (2012) 5, 6, 7, 12, 13, 14, 19, 20

A tribute from Ken Ludwig to the great English farces of the 1930s and 1940s, The Fox On The Fairway takes audiences on a hilarious romp which pulls the rug out from underneath the stuffy denizens of a private country club. Filled with mistaken identities, slamming doors, and over-the-top romantic shenanigans, it’s a furiously paced comedy that recalls the Marx Brothers’ classics. A charmingly madcap adventure about love, life, and man’s eternal love affair with… golf.


Drop Dead!

by Billy Van Zandt and Jane Milmore
directed by Fran Carroll
January (2013) 11, 12, 13, 18, 19, 20, 25, 26

A cast of has been actors plan to revive their careers in Drop Dead!, a potboiler murder mystery directed by “Wonder Child of the Broadway Stage” Victor Le Pewe (a psychotic eye twitching megalomaniac). At the dress rehearsal the set falls, props break, and the producer and an actor are murdered. During the opening
night performance, the murders continue. The remaining thespians must save the show and their careers, solve the mystery and stay alive for curtain calls.


Doubt

Please see update at top of post.

by John Patrick Shanley
directed by Georgina Anderson-­Bard
March (2013) 8, 9, 10, 15, 16, 17, 22, 23

 

A superb drama written by John Patrick Shanley. Written with an uncanny blend of compassion and detachment, it is an inspired study in moral uncertainty with the compellingly certain structure of an old-fashioned detective drama. Even as DOUBT holds your conscious attention as an intelligently measured debate play, it sends off stealth charges that go deeper emotionally. It is tight and absorbing.


Fools

by Neil Simon
directed by Ron Green
June (2013) 7, 8, 9, 14, 15, 16, 21, 22

Leon Tolchinsky is ecstatic. He’s landed a terrific teaching job in an idyllic Russian Hamlet. When he arrives he finds people sweeping dust from the stoops back into their houses and people milking upside down to get more cream. The town has been cursed with chronic stupidity for 200 years and Leon’s job is to break the curse. No one tells him that if he stays over 24 hours and fails to break the curse, he too becomes stupid. But, he has fallen in love with a girl so stupid that she has only recently learned how to sit down.
