laundry and bourbon
JAN 25 – MARCH 3
Three women (neighbors and friends) gossip and share truths while helping each other do laundry and endure a very hot day. One of these women admits that she knows her husband has been unfaithful, but she is aware of the turmoil that haunts him since his return from Vietnam. Small town stamina is evident when this woman pledges to wait out this far-reaching, lingering storm cloud. In another part of town three men beat-the-heat in the backyard of a bar as the local high school hero, recently returned after a hitch in Vietnam, details his military and amorous exploits. Laughs are shared, souls are bared and the ties of family are strengthened.
THE SECRET OF CHIMNEYS
MAR 29 – May 5
Chimneys Estate holds a dark and intriguing secret and someone will stop at nothing to prevent the monarchy being restored in faraway Herzoslovakia. A young drifter finds more than he bargained for when he agrees to deliver a parcel to this English country house and instead finds himself in the center of a murderous international conspiracy. This comedy of manners- and-murder boasts a sinister plot rife with diamonds, oil concessions, romance, espionage, exiled royalty, an elusive master criminal and the combined forces of Scotland Yard and the French Surete.
MAY 31 – JULY 7
This refreshing and unusual Tony-award winning musical is a coming-of-age parable, addressing and satirizing the anxieties associated with entering adulthood. Its characters lament that as children, they were assured by their parents, and by Sesame Street, that they were “extraordinary” and “could do anything”; but as adults, they have discovered to their surprise that in the real world their options are limited, and they are actually ordinary like everyone else. This quirky musical ranks 24th on the list of the longest running shows in Broadway history. Avenue Q is notable for the use of puppets, animated by unconcealed puppeteers.
AUG 2 – SEPT 8
Once a week, in the heart of Manhattan, five women gather to knit. As the sweaters pile up, their lives fall apart. On the surface this is a knitting club, but underneath all the yarn, this is a family of choice as these women give and get support. One is having an affair with her sister’s husband, one just lost her job, one is having an identity crisis, and one just wants a date. This play is a wool blend of Noel Coward and Wendy Wasserstein barbs showing us stylish ferocity and insight in a well-made comedy of manners.
THE NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD
OCT 4 – NOV 10
Fall out from a satellite probe shot to Venus returns to Earth carrying a mysterious radiation that transforms the unburied dead into flesh-eating zombies. Seven people trapped in an isolated farmhouse, held hostage by the ravenous ghouls, begin to turn on each other as the dead encroach. Night/Dead has been regarded as a cult classic by film scholars and critics alike. This gripping terror-filled monochromatic play brings all the fright of the cult classic to vivid stageworthy life. This blend of thrilling horror laced with touches of black humor envelops the audience in the action and unfolds into a shocking theatrical ending.
THE MAN WHO CAME TO DINNER
DEC 6 – JAN 12, 2020
It’s a few weeks before Christmas in small town USA. Famously outlandish NYC radio personality is invited to dine at the house of the well-to-do local factory owner. But this sharp-tongued celebrity slips on a patch of ice outside the front door and injures his hip. Confined to the house for a month, he drives his hosts mad by insulting them, monopolizing their world, reeking havoc with romantic antics and receiving a constant stream of bizarre guests, including performers, scientists and even paroled convicts. As Christmas Day approaches, mayhem ensues and fate delivers a comeuppance.
