Our 2017 - 2018 Theater Season

The Grapes of Wrath
Written by John Steinbeck
Adaptation by Frank Galati
Directed by Josh Hitchens
Sept. 22, 23, 24, 29, 30 Oct. 1, 6, 7, 8

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and the Tony Award for Best Play, this quintessential American drama tells the story of the Joad family. Devastated by the dust bowl, the Joads are driven by hope to find a better life in California. Performed by a diverse ensemble of actors and filled with music and song, The Grapes of Wrath is an epic celebration of the human spirit and the determination to survive.

Rasheeda Speaking
Written by Joel Drake Johnson
Directed by Scott Grumling
Nov. 17, 18, 19, 24, 25, 26 Dec. 1, 2, 3

Blending awkward workplace comedy with intense racial tension, this workplace thriller examines the realities of so-called "post-racial" America when two middle aged female co-workers - one black, one white - are driven apart by the machinations of their boss. A chilling power struggle ensues that spins wildly out of control. An acidic depiction of race, power, and friendship, this dark comedy will keep you in its claustrophobic grip until its final moments. We are proud to present the Philadelphia Regional premiere of this critically acclaimed recent off-Broadway hit.

You Can't Take it With You
Written by Moss Hart & George S. Kauffman
Directed by Noel Hanley
Jan. 12, 13, 14, 19, 20, 21, 26, 27, 28

Boy from stuffy family meets girl and falls in love. Girl invites boy home to meet her family.  Boy and parents arrive an evening early and finds his girlfriends eccentric, "mad", family totally unprepared for dinner guests, let alone the stuffy Kirby family! To complicate matters further, the Sycamores (girl’s family) own a piece of real estate key to Mr. Kirby’s business success, and they refuse to sell. During this ill-fated evening, tempers flare, fireworks are set off and the police arrive to take everyone to jail! Will the hilarious antics of the Sycamore family stand in the way of Alice's future happiness or will Tony be able to show his parents that their way of life needs a little madness!

The Most Deserving
Written by Catharine Trieschmann
Directed by Nancy Kreider
Mar. 2, 3, 4, 9, 10, 11, 16, 17, 18

The five members of the arts council in Ellis County, Kansas have $20,000 to award to a deserving artist, but there aren't that many artists around, and besides, they're having trouble deciding just what constitutes "deserving." Everyone has a motive for supporting his or her candidate, and those motives are fueled more by pragmatism, hatred, lust or petty score-settling than by aesthetic appreciation. Yikes, can this dysfunctional board figure out who is "most deserving"?

I Hate Hamlet
Written by Paul Rudnick
Directed by Mariangela Saavedra.

May 4, 5, 6, 11, 12, 13, 18, 19, 20

Andrew seems to have it all: a starring role in a hit television series; a rich, beautiful girlfriend; a devoted agent; the perfect New York apartment that once once belonged to the legendary actor John Barrymore; and the chance to play Hamlet in Central Park. But alas, there is always trouble in paradise as his show is on hiatus, his girlfriend is fickle and he really, really HATES Hamlet. Can the ghost of John Barrymore convince him to accept the part and fulfill his actor's destiny? The laughs are nonstop as Andrew wrestles with his conscience, his sword, his girlfriends expectations, Barrymore's ghost and the fact that he could fail at his turn as Hamlet.
