I Ought To Be In Pictures

Herb, a Hollywood scriptwriter currently "at liberty" is surprised when his forgotten past reappears in the form of Libby, a teenage daughter who's trekked from Brooklyn with dreams of movie stardom. With Steffy, his sometime paramour at his side, Herb decides to take another stab at fatherhood and hopefully this time, get it right...

"Terrific...sweet, dandy and touching...a mature, memorable play that brings joy to the season." - New York Post

"A finely tuned theatrical blend of hilarity, honesty, directly and deeply felt emotion. Go." - WCBS-TV

Rope

For the mere sake of adventure, danger and the "fun of the thing," Wyndham Brandon persuades his weak-minded friend, Charles, to assist him in the murder of a fellow undergraduate, a harmless man named Ronald. They place the body in a wooden chest and then invite a few friends and the dead man's father to a party with the chest serving as a supper table. Thunder grows outside, the guests leave and we see the reactions of the two murderers, watched closely by the suspecting lame poet, Rupert.

Sunday Matinee November 16
Thursday evenings November 6 & 20

Quartet

Cecily, Reggie and Wilfred reside in a home for retired singers in Kent, England. Each year there is a concert to celebrate Verdi's birthday. Jean, who used to be married to Reggie, arrives at the home and disrupts their celebration. She still acts like a diva and refuses to sing. But the show must go on in this very funny and poignant play.

Hostages for the Holidays

It is 6 p.m. and the Douglas family is busily preparing to be invaded by their relatives for their annual Christmas Eve dinner. After robbing a neighborhood liquor store, high strung and irritable Tony, and his dim-witted side-kick, Vinny, find themselves in need of a place to briefly hide out. Using a ruse to gain entrance into the Douglas home, they suddenly find themselves in charge of an ever-growing list of family members that they are forced to hold hostage. From smart-aleck teenagers, to nosy neighbors, and bickering adults, the laughs (like the flow of people) are non-stop and we soon wonder who is holding who hostage?!
