MR. HART & MR. BROWN

By Bruce Graham

April 15, 16, 17, 28, 29, 30, May 1, 4, 5, 6, 7

Set in the roaring twenties and based on real-life events, Mr. Hart & Mr. Brown tells the story of a volatile meeting between two men with mysterious backgrounds, witnessed by a young newspaper reporter who smells a story. But is it worth his life to write it? In Hart & Brown Mr. Graham not only explores the duality of man, specifically the nature vs. nurture debate, but also the role that the media plays in our society. “Perhaps the most gripping element in Graham’s play is its depiction of identity as a kind of performance. In Hart & Brown, all the world’s a stage, and the two primary characters are each playing a carefully cultivated role…and the media are a means to project their chosen images on an unsuspecting world that accepts anything in print as gospel.” (Philadelphia Weekly)

STOP KISS

By Diana Son

August 26, 27, 28, September 8, 9, 10, 11, 14, 15, 16, 17

A simple play, Diana Son’s Stop Kiss tells the story of a first kiss that transforms the lives of those involved. When New Yorker Callie meets Sara, a young woman from Missouri, the two unexpectedly fall in love. An “…irresistibly exciting…a sweet, sad, and enchantingly sincere play” (NY Times), Stop Kiss explores the beauty of a burgeoning relationship and what happens when that relationship comes in contact with an unforgiving and sometimes terrifying society. However, though her play is set against the backdrop of a gay hate crime, Diana Son does not preach or pontificate; she merely presents the innocence of a budding relationship.

TIME STANDS STILL

By Donald Margulies

June 3, 4, 5, 9, 10, 11, 12, 15, 16, 17, 18
 

We continue our look at the media with Donald Margulies’ Time Stands Still. Mr. Margulies’ play focuses on Sarah and James, a photojournalist and a foreign correspondent trying to find happiness in a world that seems to have gone crazy. Theirs is a partnership based on telling the toughest stories, and together, making a difference. But when their own story takes a sudden turn, the adventurous couple confronts the prospect of a more conventional life. “Can you be a dispassionate, uninvolved observer of horrific events, recording them for posterity and still keep a sense of right and wrong, not to mention your sanity? It’s one of several questions getting a workout in Time Stands Still.” (Associated Press) “A solid play—taut and well-constructed, with hardly a single detail extraneous.” (Time Out NY)

BACH AT LEIPZIG

By Itamar Moses

October 14, 15, 16, 20, 21, 22, 23, 26, 27, 28, 29

It’s Leipzig, Germany in 1722, and the town council invites musicians, among them Johann Sebastian Bach, to audition for the coveted position of organist at the Thomaskirche. What ensues is a hilarious battle of wits to win the most soughtafter musical post in Europe. Written by Itamar Moses, Bach at Leipzig not only offers a farcical look at the notions of bribery, blackmail, and betrayal set against the backdrop of the Enlightment, but also questions humanity, God, and art. “An intellectual fun-house of a play. With its wordplay, brainy allusions and virtuoso manipulations of artistic form, it has a ‘look-Ma-no-hands’ swagger. A poignant meditation on the artistic temperament and the transporting power of music.” (Washington Post)

Betrayal

By Harold Pinter

July 15, 16, 17, 21, 22, 23, 24, 27, 28, 29, 30

Inspired by Harold Pinter’s own real-life clandestine affair, Betrayal begins in the present, with the meeting of Emma and Jerry, whose adulterous affair of seven years ended two years earlier. Their reminiscences reveal that Emma’s husband Robert (who is also Jerry's close friend) knew of their affair all along and, to Jerry's dismay, regarded it with total nonchalance. Thereafter, in a series of contiguous scenes, the play moves backward in time, from the end of the Emma-Jerry affair to its beginning, throwing into sharp relief the little lies and oblique remarks that, in this time-reverse, reveal more than direct statements, or overt actions, ever could. “Betrayal is a play that happens twice, once in front of your eyes, once in your head, when you revisit certain scenes…” ~The Conversation
