On Golden Pond By Ernest Thompson Oct. 25,26,27 & Nov. 1,2,3 2019 Cantankerous retiree Norman Thayer and his conciliatory wife, Ethel, spend summers at their New England vacation home on the shores of idyllic Golden Pond. This year, their adult daughter, Chelsea , visits with her new fiancée and his teenage son, Billy on their way to Europe. After leaving Billy behind to bond with Norman, Chelsea returns, attempting to repair the long-strained relationship with her aging father before it's too late.
BEDROOM FARCE By Alan Ayckbourn Feb. 7,8,9 & 14,15,16 2020 Bedroom Farce takes place in the bedrooms of three married couples during one, long night, Ernest and Delia are celebrating their wedding anniversary after many, many years of marriage; Malcolm and Kate are gearing up to host a party in their new ‘love nest’; while Nick and Jan are trying to cope with Nick’s recent back injury which has left him stuck in bed while Jan goes to Malcolm and Kate’s party without him. Each couple’s relationship has its problems but they are all tested when Trevor and Susannah’s dysfunctional, miserable marital issues are inflicted upon them….in their own bedrooms! Leaving a wave of destruction behind them as they lament on the state of their marriage, Trevor and Susannah ruffle beds, tempers, and routines to try and find their way back to each other. Hilarious, touching, and fast paced, Bedroom Farce is one Ayckbourn’s funniest plays.
SAME TIME NEXT YEAR By Bernard Slade Apr. 17,18,19 & 24,25,26 2020 In 1951, at a small California inn, George and Doris have an affair. Instead of writing it off as a one-night stand, the pair decide to meet at the inn every year for a romantic retreat, away from their respective spouses and families. In the decades that follow, both George and Doris face their own personal struggles and hardships, and together they develop a level of love and intimacy that exceeds the ones found in their own marriages.
