VANYA & SONIA & MASHA & SPIKE
by Christopher Durang
October 23-November 1, 2015
The hilarious winner of the 2013 Tony Award for Best Play! Your heart has to go out to three siblings whose artsy parents named them after characters from Chekhov. Vanya and Sonia have lived at home while sister Masha has travelled the world starring in B-movies. Now Masha is back, with her boy toy Spike in tow, and she’s intent on selling the house. Farce ensues. Award-winning playwright Christopher Durang is in sidesplitting top form with this riotous Broadway smash.
THE ROYAL FAMILY
by George S. Kaufman & Edna Ferber
December 4-13, 2015
Nominated for Five Tony Awards for its smash-hit Broadway revival in 2010, The Royal Family is a classic comedy of theatrical manners, written by two of the theatre's greatest writers, George S. Kaufman and Edna Ferber. This devilishly funny play follows a famous family of stage stars as they go about the drama their lives.
WAITING FOR GODOT
by Samuel Beckett
March 25-April 3, 2016
Samuel Beckett’s classic tragicomedy centers on two wanderers who wait by a lonely tree, to meet up with Mr. Godot, who they hope will change their lives for the better. Instead, another couple of eccentric travelers arrive, one man on the end of the other's rope. The results are both funny and dangerous in what many call "the most significant English language play of the 20th century.”
SHERLOCK HOLMES: THE FINAL ADVENTURE
by Steven Dietz
April 22-May 1, 2015
Could this be Sherlock Holmes’ final case? Could the logical detective who has survived poison, pistols, and other predicaments actually be laid low by his love for a woman? The villainous Professor Moriarty thinks so. And, despite the best efforts of Holmes and Dr. Watson, Moriarty may just be right. “The game is afoot, Watson—and it is a dangerous one!”
