A Streetcar Named Desire by Tennessee Williams
A haunting drama about psychological delusion.
After the loss of her family home, Blanche DuBois travels from the small town of Laurel, Mississippi, to the New Orleans French Quarter to live with her younger, married sister, Stella, and brother-in-law, Stanley Kowalski. Blanche is in her thirties and, with no money, has nowhere else to go. The play reveals human nature undermined by romantic illusions, which lead to the rejection of the realities of life. The pressures brought to bear upon these illusions leads to a revelation of tragic self-delusion and, in the end, to madness.
Sylvia by A.R. Gurney
A modern romantic comedy about a marriage and a dog.
Greg and Kate have moved to Manhattan after twenty-two years of child-raising in the suburbs. Greg brings home a dog he found in the park—or that has found him. A street-smart mixture of Lab and Poodle, Sylvia becomes a rival for his affection and a major bone of contention between husband and wife. Some people just don’t understand the relationship between man and dog. The marriage is put in serious jeopardy until, after a series of hilarious and touching complications, Greg and Kate learn to compromise, and Sylvia becomes a valued part of their lives.
Leading Ladies by Ken Ludwig
A highly combustible comedy about mistaken identities.
Two English Shakespearean actors, Jack and Leo, find themselves so down on their luck that they are performing "Scenes from Shakespeare" on the Moose Lodge circuit in Pennsylvania. When they hear that an old lady in York, PA is about to die and leave her fortune to her two long-lost English nephews, they resolve to pass themselves off as her beloved relatives and get the cash. The trouble is, when they get to York, they discover that the relatives aren't nephews, but nieces! Fear not - they have women's costumes in their show trunk. What could possibly go wrong?
Cabaret by Masteroff, Kander, & Ebb
A dark musical about escaping the trials of life.
In a seedy Berlin nightclub, as the 1920s draw to a close, a garish Master of Ceremonies welcomes the audience and assures them they will forget all their troubles at the CABARET. With the Emcee's bawdy songs as wry commentary, Cabaret explores the dark, heady, and tumultuous life of Berlin's natives and expatriates as Germany slowly yields to the emerging Third Reich.
