Comedy/thriller by Norman Robbins.

Produced by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.

Directed by: Jeffery Lesniak

Performance Dates

July 15-31, 2016

Synopsis

Reading of the Will has never been this hilariously sinister . . . or this filled with outrageous, cut-throat family members all vying for the millions left to unlikely heirs. You'll meet the various Tomb Family members, one by one, each one more bizarre than the last. Be prepared to be 'serenaded' by werewolves, 'entertained' by Julius Caesar, and even 'embedded in the garden' by a sweet little old aunt who plants more than just seeds in her flower beds. By the third act there are more corpses than live members left in the cast. All is revealed as the plot twists and turns to its surprising conclusion.

Performance Dates

December 2-18, 2016

Synopsis

Annie Nations, a strong-willed Appalachian woman, lives on her mountain farm with her sharp-tongued, bullheaded husband, Hector. Her tranquility is threatened by a brash real estate developer who wants to turn her land into a vacation resort, and by concern over her son, Dillard, a country singer who has come home with two stranded children because his wife has run away. Annie's battle to decide her future takes her through some funny, touching and magical flashbacks to her life with Hector. Foxfire is a poignant drama about maintaining one's identity and memories through the inevitable march of time.

Murder mystery by Lucille Fletcher.

Produced by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc.

Directed by:

Performance Dates

March 10-26, 2017

Synopsis

Unable to sleep, Elaine Wheeler paces the living room of her Manhattan townhouse, troubled by unsettling memories and vague fears. Elaine's terror grows as she sees (or thinks she sees) a murder committed in the townhouse across the way. After several "crying wolf" calls to the police, all to no avail, and a visit from a psychiatrist hired by her husband, Elaine may be on the verge of a breakdown. Should Elaine commit herself to a sanitarium for treatment? From this point on, the plot moves quickly and grippingly as those involved—Elaine's old friend and house guest Blanche; the inquisitive and rather sinister man who lives next door; and the nosy German maid Helga—all contribute to the deepening suspense and mystery of the play as it draws toward its riveting and chilling climax.
