Directors' Round Table: Working with the Actors with Jim Gallagher and Darice Clewell

The Directors' Round Table Series is designed as a forum where directors with all levels of experience (well-seasoned to novice or prospective) can meet in a less-formal setting to share their insight and suggestions. Each event will be held at Harry Browne's Restaurant near the theatre and will have a specific theme and facilitator. These events are free, however, we ask that you register for these sessions so that we can have an approximate number of attendees for each.

Ernest in Love

Book and Lyrics by Anne Crosswell
Music by Lee Pockriss
Directed by Rick Wade
Performance dates: April 17 - May 16, 2015

Some consider Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest the funniest play written in English. CP seeks to capture all its wit and piquant satire in this musical version. The story is of the courtship of two affluent young ladies, Gwendolyn Fairfax and Cecily Cardew, by the young self-indulgent gentlemen, Jack Worthing and Algernon Moncrieff. Each man has been slightly dishonest in order to get what he wants, and the struggle against major challenges: the formidable Lady Bracknell, Cecily's mother, and the truth itself. When all is revealed to everybody, even Jack, it leads to an unexpected happy ending and three weddings!

Why Torture is Wrong, and the People who Love Them

Why Torture is Wrong and the People who Love Them

Written by Christopher Durang
Directed by Kristofer Kauff
Performance dates: June 5 - 20, 2015

As Wilde skewered his privileged contemporaries in 1895, Christopher Durang also takes on several disturbing elements of our own culture and our current state of homeland insecurity. This pungently funny comedy bears all the hallmarks of Durang's style: hilarious non-sequitur-loaded dialogue, characters atilt with their own predilections, and the sense that you somehow wandered into the wrong play and can't quite understand all that is happening and whether you should be laughing or outraged. But you can count on this: the play is funny, whether dealing with a passionate butterfly collector who cherishes lots and lots of powerful specimens, an inept secret agent who can't stop making noises like cartoon characters, or a woman who marries, under the influence, an Irish terrorist named Zamir.

Content Warning: This play contains violence, mature themes, and language.
