WEDDINGS ARE MURDER by Eileen Moushey
Synopsis: Everything is going wrong for Bruce and Tina’s wedding. The wedding was supposed to take place on Valentine's Day, but it fell on Ash Wednesday. The church flooded so they have to get married in a theater. The groom’s snobbish, aristocratic mother, Sylvia, registers her disapproval of the nuptials by wearing black. The judge hired to perform the ceremony is drunk. The wrong tux was delivered to the bride’s father, Jackie. The photographer is an old boyfriend of Tina’s. Bruce’s old girlfriend interrupts the wedding. The family maid uses the ceremony to declare her love for the groom. The cake is a mess. Tina’s dress came from the costume shop after hers was ruined in the flood. She breaks the heel from her shoe as she comes down the aisle. The wedding napkins read “Bruce and Tuna.” A stranger shows up in time to die. WEDDINGS ARE MURDER by Eileen Moushey is produced by special arrangement with Mysteries by Moushey.
May 10 - 19
THINGS MY MOTHER TAUGHT ME by Katherine DiSavino
Synopsis: Olivia and Gabe are moving into their first apartment together. They’ve just packed up all of their belongings and driven halfway across the country to start a new life together in Chicago. Their moving day doesn’t go exactly as planned and things become slightly more complicated when both sets of parents show up to “help”. This play takes a generational look at relationships, and how sometimes parents are passing their best lessons on to their children without even meaning to. It's a comedy in which three couples love each other and value the things that make their partners special. THINGS MY MOTHER TAUGHT ME by Katherine DiSavino is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc. www.concordtheatricals.com
October 31 – November 10
THE LION IN WINTER by William Goldman
Synopsis: Sibling rivalry, adultery, and dungeons – The Lion in Winter, by James Goldman, is a modern-day classic. Comedic in tone, dramatic in action – the play tells the story of the Plantagenet family, who are locked in a free-for-all of competing ambitions to inherit a kingdom. The queen, and wealthiest woman in the world, Eleanor of Aquitaine, has been kept in prison since raising an army against her husband, King Henry II. Let out only for holidays, the play centers around the inner conflicts of the royal family as they fight over both a kingdom and King Henry’s paramour during the Christmas of 1183. As Eleanor says, “Every family has its ups and downs,” and this royal family is no exception.
December 5 – 15
AN ACADIANA CHRISTMAS CAROL adapted and directed by Alicia Chaisson
Synopsis: Set in contemporary south Louisiana, the story follows the transformation of Edward Scrooge from a disconnected, manipulative profiteer to an empathetic, active participant in the world. Fueled by the magic of Christmas, Scrooge is visited by ghosts of Christmas past, present, and future who teach the valuable lesson that it is never too late to give and accept love. One way of showing love is to accept responsibility. This twist on the classic Dickens' tale will appeal to all with its spirit of fun, forgiveness, and generosity.
