2021-22 SEASON SHOWS

THE MYSTERY OF IRMA VEP: A Penny Dreadful
by Charles Ludlam
Directed by Chris Rohmann

October 1-16, 2021

This definitive spoof of Gothic melodramas, recently revived Off-Broadway to raves, is a quick change marathon in which two actors play all the roles. A sympathetic werewolf, a vampire and an Egyptian princess brought to life when her tomb is opened make this a comedy that has everything.

“A true vaudeville tour de farce… It’s wonderful.” -Time “A hearty mixture of thrills, laughter and extravagant showmanship.” -The Village Voice

ADMISSIONS
by Joshua Harmon
Directed by Mark Dean

March 11-26, 2022

Sherri Rosen-Mason is head of the admissions department at a New England prep school, fighting to diversify the student body. Alongside her husband, the school’s headmaster, they’ve largely succeeded in bringing a stodgy institution into the twenty-first century. But when their only son sets his sights on an Ivy League university, personal ambition collides with progressive values, with convulsive results. A no-holds-barred look at privilege, power, and the perils of hypocrisy.

“Masterful. Expertly crafted. An absorbing drama and a prod to self-examination.” – Miami Herald

SHE STOOPS TO CONQUER
by Oliver Goldsmith
Directed by Keith Langsdale

April 29-May 14, 2022

First performed in 1773, this is a comedy of manners in which, in a polite society setting, the comedy arises from the gap between the characters’ attempts to preserve standards of polite behavior and their true behavior. A complex series of misunderstandings and practical jokes tie the Hardcastle family up in knots which the action proceeds to untangle.
