December 11th: And Away We Go
by Terrence McNally
Directed by Pavel Cerny
Times change, but life in the theatre remains the same: chaotic, sometimes brutal, but often euphoric. AND AWAY WE GO jumps through time from backstage in ancient Athens to a rehearsal at the Globe, from Versailles’ Royal Theatre to the first reading of a new play by Chekhov– with an unlikely stop at Corral Gables FL and the American premiere of Waiting for Godot along the way. “Terrence McNally plants a big wet kiss on his lifetime love– the theatre. A frolicsome valentine to the glorious, maddening, demanding world of footlights, spotlights and ghost lights”– New York Times
December 18th: When the Son is Shining
by Jeffrey Fischer-Smith
WHEN THE SON IS SHINING, the fifth in the nine-play cycle “An American Family,” is about survival. As 1960s America falls apart, so does a small Long Island family. Morality collapses on all fronts. Big and small family worlds are in upheaval. Father, mother, son, wife, neighbors – all find themselves pitted against each other. No one will arise unscathed but will their world completely unravel?
