The Good Father
by Christian O’Reilly Sept. 17 – Oct. 12, 2014 Studio Theatre
Directed by C. Michael Wright
Featuring Laura Gray and Jonathan Wainwright
This gritty contemporary love story from Ireland tracks a year in the lives of two people from vastly different backgrounds. Tim, a house painter, and Jane, a lawyer, meet at a raucous New Year’s Eve party, never imagining how much their lives are about to change.
The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) [revised]
by Adam Long, Daniel Singer & Jess Winfield Nov. 19 – Dec. 14, 2014 Studio Theatre
Directed by Ray Jivoff
Featuring Chris Klopatek, Rick Pendzich, Chase Stoeger and Marcus Truschinski
Celebrate the holidays with a rowdy band of overachievers who attempt to perform all 37 of Shakespeare’s plays in 99 minutes! Performed at MCT in the summer of 2001, this literary romp was another hit! With the added bonus of live music this time around, we’ll be Rockin’ and Rollin’ with the Bard!
The Train Driver
by Athol Fugard Feb. 25 – March 15, 2015 Studio Theatre
Directed by C. Michael Wright
Featuring David Daniel and Michael A. Torrey
Roelf Visagie is desperately searching for the identities of a mother and child he unintentionally killed with his train. His quest eventually leads him to an eye-opening encounter with an old gravedigger. Inspired by an actual event in South Africa, this hard-hitting new drama is the latest from Athol Fugard, one of our greatest living playwrights.
Jeeves Takes A Bow
by Margaret Raether April 16 – May 3, 2015 Cabot Theatre
Directed by Tami Workentin
Featuring Matt Daniels as Jeeves, with Kay Allmand, Anna Cline, Chris Klopatek, Steve Koehler and Chase Stoeger
Bertie and Jeeves are back for a final encore! In Margaret Raether’s third adaptation of the P.G. Wodehouse stories, the dynamic duo is now residing in Manhattan and dabbling in show biz. When they become involved with a kooky young chorus girl, they quickly learn that trouble (and her gangster “friend”) follows close behind!
