On Golden Pond
By Ernest Thompson
September 12 - 14, 2019
This is the love story of Ethel and Norman Thayer, who are returning to their summer home on Golden Pond for the forty-eighth year. They are visited by their divorced, middle-aged daughter and her fiancé, who then go off, leaving his teenage son behind for the summer. The boy quickly becomes the "grandchild" the elderly couple have longed for, and Norman also learns some lessons about modern teenage awareness—and slang—in return. As the summer wanes, so does their brief idyll. Time, they know, is now against them, but the years have been good and, perhaps, another summer on Golden Pond still awaits.
The Boys Next Door
By Tom Griffin
November 7 - 9, 2019
In a communal residence in a New England city, four men with intellectual disabilities live under the supervision of an earnest, but increasingly "burned out" young social worker named Jack. Mingled with scenes from the daily lives of these four, where "little things" sometimes become momentous (and often very funny), are moments of great poignancy when, with touching effectiveness, we are reminded that people with disabilities, like the rest of us, want only to love and laugh and find some meaning and purpose in their lives.
Pride and Prejudice
By Jane Austen and Adapted by Jon Jory
January 20 - February 1, 2020
All of the wit and romance of Jane Austen's classic 1813 novel come to life in this refreshingly fast-paced and engaging new adaptation. When the independent-minded Elizabeth meets the handsome but enigmatic Mr. Darcy, she is determined not to let her feelings triumph over her own good sense -- but the truth turns out to be slipperier than it seems. In a society where subtle snubs and deceit proliferate, is it possible for Elizabeth and Darcy to look beyond his pride and her prejudice, and to make the best match of all?
By August Wilson
May 7 - 9, 2020
Set in the 1950s, the evolving African-American experience is explored as a former star of the Negro baseball league, Troy Maxons, is excluded from the major leagues during his prime. Now working as a garbage man, bitterness takes its toll on his relationships as his son wants his own chance to play in the major leagues. The main action of the play takes places over a two-month period that changes the nature of the Maxons’ marriage and Cory’s path in life forever. Winner of the Tony Award for Best Play.
