(The Chinese Wall includes brief nudity.)

Swiss playwright, Frisch, wrote this “timely” play in 1946. Yet, its satire and theatricality make an astounding comment on today’s seemingly farcical political arena. What sort of emperor would delight in the completion of a protective wall (The Great Wall of China) that could reach New York or Berlin? Part tragedy, comedy, history, farce, and satire this wildly unpredictable theatrical event knows no bounds as it blends well-known characters from literature with real life historical people and places them all together on an ethereal stage that rivals and parallels today’s headlines. A rich, witty, wry, look at history and “time” itself.

Directed by Jules Aaron

A successful-but-currently-stalled playwright conspires with his wife to “collaborate” with a student whose new thriller shows tremendous potential. Dealing with the devious machinatons of a conniving writer whose recent offerings have been flops, and who is prepared to go to any lengths to improve his fortunes, Deathtrap’s suspense mounts steadily as the plot begins to twist and turn with devilish cleverness, and with such an abundance of thrills — and laughter — that audiences will be held enthralled until the final, startling moments of the play.
