Something for Everyone: Announcing our 2022-2023 Season
Our seventh season showcases more original works, seldom seen gems, and the occasional infrequently produced classic. All shows will run for two consecutive weekends.
Opening the season on Friday, September 30, is Grace Ellis' charming, magical midlife comedy Rhonda's Rites Of Passage. Ellis' Rhonda is 45 and shocks her co-dependent family by announcing she is going to New York to pursue her dream of becoming an actress. The disruption for hubby and her two twenty-something children is hilarious.
Next up, opening Friday, November 11, a play by local playwright David Ratcliff entitled Whittler's Bench, a folksy tale of friendship, ghosts, and community. The old guys in Ratcliff's drama may be relegated to a park bench as the world passes them by, but when a crisis presents a challenge, they rise to the ocassion and intervene.
The modern American classic and NY Drama Critics Circle award winner A Raisin In The Sun, Lorraine Hansberry's searing exploration of racism, discrimination, and assimilation is our first offering of the new year. It opens Friday, February 17.
Our season's final show, Levitation by Timothy Mason, opens Friday, April 28. First produced by the famed Circle Repertory Company of New York City, Mason's play is a poignant story of relationships, loss, and the transitory nature of life.
