CATHOLIC SCHOOL GIRLS by Casey Kurtti
March 8 – 30, 2013
This satire of Catholic school life in the 1960′s uses four actresses to play the nuns as well as the students at St. George’s School in Yonkers, as they experience bonds of friendship, endure reprimands from authority figures and pressures from home. In the plays time frame they amusingly react to such iconic experiences as the Beatles, the Addams Family television show, the Supremes, the space race, the cold war and the election of a Catholic president in an amusing portrait of girls maturing to the threshold of adolescence. “Fine, funny, loving.” – Hollywood Reporter. “Brilliant….A rollicking comedy that speaks to anyone who has known the terrible fears and insecurities that so often accompany…the carefree days of youth.” -Westport News
THE BOYS NEXT DOOR by Tom Griffin
April 12 -May 5, 2013
An Off-Broadway success, this very funny yet very touching play focuses on the lives of four mentally challenged men who live in a communal residence under the watchful eye of a sincere, but increasingly despairing, social worker. Filled with humor, the play is also marked by the compassion and understanding with which it peers into the half-lit world of its handicapped protagonists. The show was written by Rhode Island screenwriter Tom Griffin, long-time friend of Artistic Director David Jepson. “One of the most unusual…and one of the most rewarding plays in town.” —BackStage. “Griffin’s play hits squarely on the truth of life with its constant interplays and shadings of triumphs and tears.” —NY Daily News. “Moves the audience to an awareness of how many things in everyday life we take for granted…” —NY Times.
THE EXACT CENTER OF THE UNIVERSE by Joan Vail Thorne
May 17 – June 9, 2013
Vada Love Powell, the self-appointed doyenne of a small Southern town, has invited Mary Lou Mele to tea. It’s Vada’s intention to scare off another prospective bride for her beloved son, but she meets her match in Mary Lou, who’s pretending to be her twin sister, Mary Ann, whom her son secretly married that very afternoon. It’s a complete surprise when the son returns with his shy bride, who astounds even Vada with her love for him. “A charming, insightful reflection on age, love and the difficulty of feeling at home in the world…wise and funny…” —NY Times. “A delightful, old-fashioned, well-made play…tickles with its juicy dialogue and zesty characters.” —NY Magazine. “An amiable comedy about a classic Southern dragon-lady mother…sharply written…flawlessly elegant…poignantly evokes the passing years.” —The New Yorker. “A funny…a warm-spirited evening of solid charm.” —Associated Press.
BOEING BOEING by Marc Camoletti, Beverly Cross, Francis Evans
June 21-July 21, 2013
This mega-hit set attendance records for a non-musical, capturing the 2008 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Play and Best Leading Male Actor as well as four other nominations. It starred Bradley Whitford, Christine Baranski and Gina Gershon. This adaptation of the 1960′s French comedy adapted for the English-speaking stage features self-styled Parisian lothario Bernard, who has Italian, German, and American fiancees, each beautiful airline hostesses with frequent “layovers”. He keeps “one up, one down and one pending” until unexpected schedule changes bring all three to Paris and Bernard’s apartment at the same time. The appeal of the show is the very opposite of what you might expect. It’s deliciously, deliriously innocent! “This latest edition of a play named for an aircraft soars right out of its time zone and into some unpolluted stratosphere of classic physical comedy. Propelled by the same gusty spirit that animated Commedia dell’Arte and the silent films of Keaton, Chaplin and Lloyd; this may be earthy, but it’s seldom earthbound.” – The New York Times.

Upon returning from their honeymoon, they discover that Austria has been invaded by the Nazis, who demand the Captain’s immediate service in their navy. The family’s narrow escape over the mountains to Switzerland on the eve of World War II provides one of the most thrilling and inspirational finales ever presented in the theatre.
