Ticket Information 

AN IDEAL HUSBAND  

An Ideal HusbandBy Oscar Wilde
Directed by James Simon
November 6 – 16, 2013

An Ideal Husband is a story of morality, blackmail, and political scandal.  Sir Robert Chiltern is a highly respected government minister whose spotless reputation is the pride of his loving wife.  But when an old acquaintance, the mysterious Mrs. Cheveley, threatens to reveal a dark secret from Robert’s past, he must choose between public scandal and the loss of his trusting wife. As the story unfolds, it is revealed that the man thought to be perfect is flawed, and the question remains: what makes an ideal husband? Oscar Wilde’s timeless 1895 comedy expresses morality and the greater standard that falls upon those who choose a life in the public eye.

THE COUNTRY WIFE  

The Country WifeBy William Wycherley
Directed by Alan Dilworth
February 5 – 15, 2014

Written in 1675, The Country Wife is a rollicking farce in which Restoration rakes openly seek to seduce young women and cuckold their husbands. Refreshingly, though, the fair sex give as good as they get. They’re not helpless victims in this comedy but willing and lusty conspirators, who enjoy bawdy wordplay and sex every bit as much as their male counterparts.  William Wycherley’s comedy is one of the supreme delights of the Restoration. Deemed too risqué for 18th and 19th century audiences, The Country Wife will have audiences reveling in the joys of this delicious farce.

 Spring Repertory Season

THE ROSE TATTOO  

Rose TattooBy Tennessee Williams
Directed by Todd Hammond
April 8 – 20, 2014

Professional widow and dressmaker Serafina Delle Rose has withdrawn from the world, locking away her heart and her sixteen-year-old daughter, Rosa. Then one day a man stumbles into her life reminding her of her late Sicilian husband, and clumsily unlocks Serafina’s fiery anger, sense of betrayal, pride, wit, passion, and eventually her capacious love.  The Rose Tattoo is larger than life—a fable, a Greek tragedy, a comedy, a melodrama—it has been called a love letter from Tennessee Williams to anyone who has ever been in love or ever will be.  The original production of The Rose Tattoo won Tony Awards for best play and stars Eli Wallach and Maureen Stapleton.  Anna Magnani received the Academy Award as Best Actress for the 1955 film version.

RING ROUND THE MOON  

Ring Around the MoonBy Jean Anouilh
Translated by Christopher Fry
Directed by Sue Miner
April 9 – 19, 2014

A delightful tale of twin brothers, a rich heiress (engaged to one of the brothers but desperately in love with his heartless sibling) and a ballet dancer who has been brought to a French chateau to further a plan of the coldly calculating brother. The ballet dancer, however, won't behave! She has plans of her own and resists the role she has been hired to play. A millionaire, who thinks he can buy anything with money, a timeworn aunt, watchful and witty, and a couple having a torrid extramarital love affair, all join in the festivities at the chateau. By the end of the play, all have their delicate hearts turned upside down under the moon!
