Wedding Secrets

Mainstage Farce

by Joe Starzyk

January 7th – 22nd, 2022
Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. Sundays at 2 p.m.

A young couple have a whirlwind courtship and marry. However, their families have never met the respective spouses, so the couple allows the families to believe they have only become engaged.

Once the families gather, everyone’s secrets come to life. Susan’s parents are secretly divorcing and keeping it from their children. Her aunt is an unstable serial dater and her sister is a typical angst ridden teenager. Bill’s parents aren’t intimate and his father is greatly in debt.

And there is the mysterious uncle Joey who lives in the basement and is a strange derivation of the Greek Chorus. In all, there are Oedipal issues, hookers, an Irish revolutionary, priests, a lounge singer, the Phantom of the Opera, heartbreak, romance, impotence, happy endings and lots of ties.

Luce

Black Box Drama

by JC Lee

February 4th – 12th, 2022
Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. Sundays at 2 p.m.

JC Lee’s probing play about a suspicious teenager addresses issues of privilege, race, and trust.

When a teacher makes an alarming discovery about Luce, an all-star high school student, Luce’s parents are forced to reckon with their idealized image of their son, adopted years ago from a war-torn African country.

Told primarily from the perspective of the adults, Luce also raises questions about the roles that parents and teachers play in the lives of these teenage students.

Luce is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc. www.concordtheatricals.com

Greater Tuna

Black Box Comedy

by Jaston Williams, Joe Sears, and Ed Howard

February 25th – March 5th, 2022
Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. Sundays at 2 p.m.

The long-running Off Broadway hit features two actors creating the entire population of Tuna in a tour de farce of quick change artistry, changing costumes and characterizations faster than a jackrabbit runs from a coyote. Two actors, twenty characters, and a barrel of laughs, y’all.

Greater Tuna was originally produced in 1981 in Austin, Texas by its authors, Jaston Williams, Joe Sears, and Ed Howard. The play’s stars, Williams and Sears, played all twenty characters, and Howard directed. One year after its premiere, Greater Tuna opened Off Broadway, ran for over a year, and went on to tour major theaters all over America and spots overseas for the next thirty-some years, becoming one of the most produced plays in American theatre history.
