Season 5 (2017) Is in the Bag

From the Mississippi Delta
---by Endesha Ida Mae Holland, Ph.D., directed by Sarah K. Chalmers
What she had to do to get where she had to be.
Concert Reading. Mondays 2/6 and 2/13, 7:30

Described by Dr. Holland as a “dramatic biography,” From the Mississippi Delta uses three women in eleven anecdotal scenes to provide a compelling glimpse at the early days of the Civil Rights movement, told from the perspective of individuals born and raised in the muck and mire of Mississippi's lethal brand of white supremacy and racial hatred. Through the playwright’s raw, explosive, and lyrical storytelling, we get a close-up view of what had to be overcome and what was required of ordinary folks brave enough to get involved in a situation that could and did, literally, cost them their lives and the lives of their loved ones.


Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike
---by Christopher Durang, directed by David Kossack
So Durang and Chekhov walk into a Bucks County farmhouse...
Concert Reading. Mondays 3/20 and 3/27, 7:30

Winner of the Tony for Best Play, as well as the Outer Circle Critics Award for Best Play and a *slew* of other awards, Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike is one of the most lauded and beloved Broadway plays of recent years. Vanya and his adopted sister, Sonia, live a quiet life in the Pennsylvania farmhouse where they grew up, but their peace is disturbed when their movie-star sister Masha returns unannounced with her twenty-something boy toy, Spike. A weekend of rivalry, regret, and raucousness begins!


Curved
---by Kristin Shepherd, directed by Ross Haarstad
The last twisted women standing.
Concert Reading. Mondays 6/12 and 6/19, 7:30

CURVED is the newest play by Kristin Shepherd, author of *$38,000 for a Friendly Face* (produced by Homecoming Players in its 2015 season). Through a stylistically intermittent use of stand-up comedy techniques and individual “mic work,” it lays bare the relationships among five strong and broken women, age 11 to 80. We watch all five of these appealingly dysfunctional women grapple with love, need, and what it means—and takes—to be alive.


Easy Out (world premiere)
---by Arthur Bicknell, directed by Rachel Hockett
Come out, come out, whoever you are.
Full Production. 7/28-7/30, Friday and Saturday at 7:30, Sunday at 4:00

The newest play by the author of Homecoming Players’ 2014 breakout hit, Dotty, Easy Out focuses on the tumultuous battle for power, raging between Gerald Metcalf—a middle-age, repressed gay man (the teenage protagonist of Bicknell’s earlier and critically acclaimed play, My Great Dead Sister), and Angel—the boorish and resentful younger sister of Albert (Gerald’s narcissistic, homophobic, and currently dying longtime companion). With unlikely assistance from Andy, a charming hospice nurse, Gerald struggles to find a way to break out of the closet and into the unchartered territory of Act Three of his life.

 

 “Bicknell has succeeded in shaping all his characters into interesting human beings, totally believable, easily identifiable, and in so doing has created an absorbing, moving play that lingers in memory long after the final curtain.”
