2014 - 2015 36th Anniversary Season



by John Patrick Shanley’s

"The play is the equivalent of sitting at ringside watching a prize fight that concludes in a loving embrace."            NY Times.

Two of society’s rejects, Danny and Roberta, strike up a halting conversation over their beer. He is a brooding, self-loathing young man who resorts more to violence than reason; she is a divorced, guilt-ridden young woman whose troubled teenage son is now being cared for by her parents. Danny, whose fellow truck drivers call him "the animal," seems incapable of tender emotion, while Roberta, who is still haunted by the memory of an ugly sexual incident, is distrustful of men in general. And yet, as their initial reserve begins to melt, and they decide to spend the night together, the possibility of a genuine and meaningful relationship begins to emerge—the first for both of them.

"An explosive, deeply affecting study of alienation and the redemptive power of love."             NY Daily News         

Directed by Richard T. Orlando

A comedy by Steve Martin

This play is about Louise and Theo Markes, a couple whose conservative existence is shattered when Louise’s bloomers fall down in public.
