The Clean House by Sarah Ruhl
soundLane, a doctor who is too busy to clean her own house, hires Matilde, a feisty maid from Brazil who just happens to hate to clean and spends her time trying to make up the perfect joke. To cover for the maid, the doctor’s neat-freak sister, Virginia, secretly takes over the housecleaning. As Lane’s personal life comes crashing down around her, we are reminded that there is humor and beauty to be found in lifes biggest messes.

“One of the finest and funniest plays you’re likely to see.”
The New York Times

Special guest director David Lee Painter from the University of Idaho.

Wit by Margaret Edson
soundMargaret Edson’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play – a sardonic, funny, and heart-wrenching exploration of the puzzle of our irrevocable journey toward death, as seen through the eyes of a 50-year-old professor of English Literature who has been diagnosed with Stage IV ovarian cancer. She reflects on her academic career and begins to question the single-minded values that have always driven her. The play asks us to examine the aspects of life that make it truly worth living.

“[A] brutally human and beautifully layered new play. You feel both enlightened and, in a strange way, enormously comforted.”
The New York Times

Performance Dates: July 2, 5, 11, 14, 17, 20, 23, 26
There will be a talk back following the performance on July 14

Featuring: Beth Wallace, David Ketter, Teague Parker, Linnea Groh, Ethel Stephens, Jim Lortz, Will Eames, Monty Rozema, Jason Hamann, Isabelle Bushue
Special guest director Kayla Adams

Cat on a Hot Tin Roof by Tennessee Williams
soundWinner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1955, surrounds a family celebrating the sixty-fifth birthday of their patriarch, Big Daddy, as they have sentimentally dubbed him. The mood is somber, despite the festivities, as a number of evils poison the gaiety: greed, sins of the past and desperate hope as the knowledge that Big Daddy is dying slowly makes the rounds.

“This is a gripping and intensely moving play …Brilliant scenes, scenes of sudden and lashing dramatic power, break open… comes closest to hurling the actual blood and bone of life onto the stage.”
The New York Times

Performance Dates: July 3, 6, 9, 12, 18, 21, 24, 27
There will be a talk back following the performance on July 21

Featuring: Heather Dudenbostel, Zach Harrison, John Parra, Beth Leonard, Calvin Taylor, Brie Turhoff, Jim Lortz, Cliff Stephens
Directed by Mark Kuntz

The Wisdom of Wit by Megan Cole
soundThe Wisdom of “Wit” is Megan Cole’s dramatized lecture of Margaret Edson’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play “Wit” for which Ms. Cole played the leading role in the original production at the South Coast Repertory in 1995. In The Wisdom of “Wit,” Megan leads the audience through the play’s gripping story, alternately acting every character and interpreting the play’s perspectives on important end-of-life issues.

Appropriate for those who have seen “Wit” as well as those who intend to see “Wit.”

Performance Date: Monday July 8
