2018's Exciting Season Lineup:

A Doll’s House by Henrik Ibsen

a new version by Frank McGuinness

February 8-18, 2018

Henrik Ibsen remains one of the most influential playwrights of the ages. His plays explore the social and ethical norms and anxieties of the distressed middle class, and though they were written in the 19th century, they still ring frighteningly timely today. Nora, vibrant housewife and mother of three children, appears to enjoy living the life of a pampered, indulged child. Nonetheless, she suffers from a crippling dependency on her husband. Nora’s acceptance of the status quo is put under a microscope and the illusions behind her marriage are exposed. Henrik Ibsen’s classic work examines fundamental inequalities surrounding gender roles, power, independence and money. In a time in our society where women still fight for equality and a voice, this classic work will illuminate that as women and as humans, our choices are rarely easy and often come at great cost, and makes us examine which choices are worth it.

**Recommended for ages 14 and above**


Fences by August Wilson

April 26-6, 2018

August Wilson, one of the greatest playwrights of the 20th century, has made a lasting impact on theatre in America. In a powerful, stunning dramatic work, “Troy Maxson has gone through life in a country where to be proud and black was to face pressures that could crush a man, body and soul.” A former star of the Negro baseball leagues who was excluded as a black man from the major leagues during his prime, he now works as a garbage man in 1957 Pittsburgh. Troy's bitterness takes its toll on his relationships with his wife and his son as he struggles to find his place in frightening world. Fences explores the issues of racial segregation, socially and economically, as well as the heart of a family: fathers and sons, husbands and wives, dreams deferred, and hopes for the future.

** Recommended for ages 14 and above**


The Hobbit dramatized by Patricia Gray

adapted from the novel by J.R.R. Tolkien


July 19-29, 2018


J.R.R. Tolkien changed the face of literature and fantasy with his novels The Lord of the Rings. An odyssey with unlikely heroes about moral courage, coming together with other cultures to fight for the common good, and friendship in its truest sense, his works have been translated into over 50 languages, and eventually became box office record shattering films. In The Hobbit, Tolkien’s detailed, imaginative world of wizards, elves, goblins, and hobbits shows us that good can conquer evil in the world. Bilbo Baggins, one of the most conservative of all Hobbits, is asked to leave his cozy home in the Shire to battle a dragon and recover an important treasure. It's the last thing that any sensitive Hobbit would want to do, but he must face his fears for the sake of all of the peoples of Middle Earth. Our Playhouse Troupe returns to the main season for the second year with this epic story that shows us that small people can make a big difference.


**Recommended for ages 5 and up**



Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead by Tom Stoppard

October 11-28, 2018


In Tom Stoppard's fabulously inventive tale which has been acclaimed as a modern dramatic masterpiece, he turns Shakespeare’s tragedy Hamlet on its head by telling it from the worm’s-eye view of two relatively minor characters. In Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead, the bewildered Rosencrantz and Guildenstern finally get a chance to take the lead role, but do so in a world where echoes of Waiting for Godot resound, where reality and illusion intermix, and where fate leads our two heroes to a tragic but inevitable end. Stoppard examines some of the biggest questions that all mankind has struggled with for centuries, primarily one of life’s biggest mysteries: death. If “all the world’s a stage”, we all have minor roles in the grand scheme of things. Though we may not have all of the answers to life’s great questions, we find the humor and the pathos of life by asking the questions at all.


**Recommended for ages 14 and above**



Private Lives by Noel Coward

December 6-16, 2018


Noel Coward is a playwright famous for using comedy and escapism in the face of dark and difficult times. His audiences retreated into his plays during the World Wars, for there they could find glamour and chilled martinis and pithy witticism rather than air raids and the Wall Street Crash. His characters, while decadent and scathingly funny, live in a fantasy-land limbo, disguising their deep unhappiness with champagne and nonsense. “What happens when the champagne runs out?” Elyot and Amanda, once married and now honeymooning with new spouses at the same hotel, meet by chance, and reignite the old spark. After days of being reunited, they again find their fiery romance alternating between passions of love and anger. A roundelay of affiliations ensues in this uniquely humorous play.
