Windermere Lady With FanLADY WINDERMERE’S FAN

By Oscar Wilde
Directed by James Simon
November 11 – 21, 2015

Lady Windermere - young, rich, titled, proper, and with a healthy baby and a doting husband, lives in a London townhouse without a care in the world. Within twenty four hours, however, malicious gossip, a glamorous woman with a dangerous past, a charming gentleman with a wicked reputation, and a misplaced fan will threaten to destroy everything she holds dear and change her forever. Clever, wise, funny, and poignant, Lady Windermere's Fan is one of the masterpieces that have made Oscar Wilde the second most produced playwright in all of British drama.

Suicide Male Torso With RopeTHE SUICIDE

By Nicholai Erdman
Translated by Peter Tegel
Directed by Mitchell Cushman
February 10 - 20, 2016

A Russian black comedy of the 1920’s, The Suicide satirizes the plight of an unemployed man, desperate enough to contemplate ending it all, until he is besieged by a host of discontented characters begging him to kill himself as a gesture for their cause. Erdman’s comic rebellion against institutionalized poverty, the dangers of celebrity, and the lure of political power could make any government gulp and, as Soviet society slid into totalitarianism, Joseph Stalin banned the play. The script was smuggled abroad in various versions, but Erdman, exiled to Siberia, never saw his play realized on stage.

Spring Repertory Season

Beaux Strategem Hand On Stockinged LegTHE BEAUX STRATAGEM

By George Farquhar
Directed by Diana Leblanc
April 12 - 23, 2016

Aimwell and Archer, two charming, dissolute young men, have blown their fortunes in giddy London. Shamed and debt-ridden, they flee to provincial Lichfield in the hopes of marrying for money. Lodged at the local inn, posing as master and servant, they encounter a teeming variety of human obstacles: a crooked landlord, a fearsome highwayman, a fervent French Count, a maid on the make, a drunken husband, and a strange, turbulent priest, amongst others. But their greatest obstacle is love. When the two young meet their match in Dorinda and Mrs. Sullen they are most at risk of discovery, for in love they might be truly unmasked.  George Farquhar’s final play is a frothy and sexy restoration delight.

Enchanted Manacled FeetTHE ENCHANTED

By Jean Giraudoux
Translated by Maurice Valency
Directed by Todd Hammond
April 12 - 23, 2016

The Enchanted, is a thoughtful comedy of a charming young lady, a ghost, and a group of villagers, in a provincial French town, obsessed by the supernatural. Isobel wants to learn from the handsome ghost the answer to the riddle of death.  The ghost, afraid life will tarnish her spirit and innocence, wants to spare Isabel the diminishing returns of old age. Isabel’s lover - an ardent bureaucrat - hopes that his well - calibrated love will keep her aboveground! Even in translation (by Maurice Valency), the mercurial language of Jean Giraudoux's 1933 confection delights. Aptly enchanting, the play deftly considers the variations on the theme of life and death.
