The Rimers of Eldritch
By Lanford Wilson

Often referred to as a ‘murder mystery’—but is it really? The question is not who shot the town derelict in this moldering Missouri hamlet, but why? The murder trial generates suspicion, foments lies and deceit, and bares the souls of the actors as well as the audience as all are forced to look within themselves and answer questions about prejudice, suspicion, and man’s inhumanity to man that will leave you pondering.

The Glorious Ones
Book and Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens; Music by Stephen Flaherty

A glimpse into the backstage lives of a wandering theatre troupe in 17th century Renaissance Italy. Seven archetypal characters—the handsome leading man, the quack doctor, the crafty harlequin, the curvaceous leading lady, the graceful moon woman, and others, carouse and cavort across their itinerant stage. Slapstick and sexy, sly and sentimental, moving and bittersweet, The Glorious Ones will make you laugh and cry with rollicking good humor and naughty, bawdy fun. We did mention…naughty, right?

The Women of Lockerbie
By Deborah Brevoort

December 21st 1988: Pan Am 103 is brought down over Lockerbie Scotland by a terrorist bomb. An American mother searching for the remains of her son encounters the women of Lockerbie, local scots who are battling the US Gov’t for the clothing of the victims, so that they can be washed and returned to their families. Structured as a Greek tragedy, The Women of Lockerbie is not a story of despair, but how an act of hate can be turned to an act of love.

A Flea in Her Ear
A New Version of Georges Feydeau’s Farce by David Ives

A Flea in Her Ear has widely been referred to as “the greatest farce ever written”. Throw in the word ‘bedroom’ and you get the picture. It’s turn of the century Paris…a jealous wife suspects her husband of cheating, so contrives to get her best friend to write him an anonymous letter to incite a tryst at the dubious Frisky Puss Hotel. The husband believes the letter to be for one of his colleagues, and gives it to him…and the scene is set for an insane romp into mistaken identity, secret passages, rotating beds, and, of course, French maids.
