Here's a description of the plays:
Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike by Christopher Durang
Playing October 8-26, 2014
Melancholy turns into mayhem when Vanya and his sister Sonia-along with their clairvoyant housekeeper Cassandra-are paid a surprise visit by Hollywood star sibling Masha and her twenty something boy toy Spike in this wickedly wonderful Chekhovian mash-up, by the master of comedy Christopher Durang, that equally tickles both the casual theatregoer and the ardent student of Russian classics.
Winter Tales conceived by Mark Nash
Playing December 10-14, 2014
Pour yourself a cup of hot cider, grab a plate of molasses cookies, and join us for our 10th Anniversary of this holiday tradition filled with funny and heartfelt stories and songs to shine a bit of sunlight on the dark days of winter. Featuring brand new stories from members of the Burlington Writers Workshop, poetry brought to you by the Young Writers Project, and songs written and performed by Patti Casey.
Or, by Liz Duffy Adams
Playing January 28-February 15, 2015
Against a background of a long drawn-out war and a counter-culture of free love, cross-dressing, and pastoral lyricism, the 1660s look a lot like the 1960s in this neo-Restoration comedy about the life of Aphra Behn, poet, spy, and first professional female playwright. Before she can complete her latest masterpiece, our daring heroine must solve a pushy producer problem, untangle a saucy love triangle, and stop an attempted assassination of the King. A raucous comedy about sex, love, and gender roles, OR, by Liz Duffy Adams spins the life of Restoration playwright Aphra Behn into a delightfully dizzying romp, worthy of one of Behn's very own farces.
Slowgirl by Greg Pierce
Playing March 11-29, 2015
A teenager flees to her reclusive uncle's retreat in the Costa Rican jungle to escape the aftermath of a harrowing accident. The week they spend together forces them both to confront who they are as well as what it is they are running from. Continuing our collaboration with Shelburne playwright Greg Pierce, this play is an intimate and elegant glimpse at two people seeking forgiveness and finding each other.
The Mountaintop by Katori Hall
Playing April 22-May 10, 2015
Winner of the 2010 Olivier Award for Best New Play, The Mountaintop is a surrealistic fantasy about a chance meeting between Martin Luther King, Jr. and a mysterious hotel maid who brings him a cup of coffee and prompts him to confront his life, his past, his legacy, and his unfinished dreams.
The Bake Off conceived by Artistic Director Cristina Alicea
Playing June 16-21, 2015
Take one play, break it in three parts, add three directors and three casts, and - voila! - you've got the 4th annual directing "Bake Off," an engaging exploration of "the ingredients" different directors can use to create the same play. Each performance is followed by a Q&A with the directors and audience. More information on the chosen play to "Bake Off" will be announced in early spring 2015!
