It’s Christmas Eve in Palm Springs when Brooke presents her Reagan-adjacent parents with a tell-all confessional novel that turbo-charges the holidays and the Wyeth family dynamic with ever-shifting alliances and politics. Pulitzer Prize-finalist Jon Robin Baitz’s smart new play of high drama, serious laughter and repartee that dazzles and decimates was one of the hottest tickets on Broadway last season. “The most richly enjoyable new play for grown-ups in many a season.” –The New York Times

The Harriett Theatre at 54 West Church Street
Table Manners, Alan Ayckbourn’s award winning comedy, follows the intertwining lives of a group of siblings and their significant others during a weekend in the country.  This sidesplitting farce explodes with lust, hysterics, and exasperation as three couples share a weekend in search of love, sex, and the meaning of marriage. A comic feast where chairs and food are scarce, but laughs are served aplenty.   “…crippling you with laughter that shakes the body and more subversively, fractures the soul.”  The New York Times

Cock is the complex story of what happens to John when he takes a break from the troubled relationship he has with his boyfriend. During this “break” he meets a woman who turns out to be more than just the best friend a gay man could hope for. Riddled with guilt and paralyzed with fear, John decides to straighten it all out once and for all. Cock is a playful, candid look at one man's sexuality and the difficulties that arise when surprising new choices challenge the status quo. 
By Alan Bennett
August 8 - September 7 2014
The Harriett Theatre at 54 West Church Street
Alan Bennett’s brilliantly witty, perceptive tale of an unruly handful of senior schoolboys, preparing for coveted places at either Oxford or Cambridge under the tutelage of their somewhat “old-school” history teacher.  An unusual approach to their studies is questioned when a new, young, history teacher joins the staff with strong views of his own.  The History Boys is a compelling exploration of both the anarchy of adolescence and the very purpose of education itself, but it’s also a wonderful feel-good evening, shot through with Alan Bennett’s masterful wit and abundant humanity – quite simply a must-see.
 
The Letters

The Zehngebot-Stonerock Theatre at 54 West Church Street 
When Anna is called in for a meeting with her superior, everything seems to be going well. But nothing is quite as it seems in this thriller of politics and disinformation set in 1930’s Russia.  An informal interview quickly turns into a game of cat and mouse in which the roles of hunter and hunted shift without warning, and being the last to flinch may mean the difference between life and death. Who will claim the upper hand: those who suppress the truth, or those who will risk everything to liberate it?
