Our 2011-2012 Season:
Handle With Care (Southeastern Premiere) by Jason Odell Williams
October 28-November 20, 2011
The Regional Premiere Handle with Care is the story of Ayelet, an Israeli girl who is dragged by her grandmother on a road trip to America in search of a dream. Despite a botched DHL delivery, an unexpected blizzard, and an ill-equipped translator who is not really cut out for the job, the clues her grandmother deftly leaves behind eventually lead Ayelet to find what she didn't even know she was looking for: her destiny.
Race by David MametJanuary 27 – February 12, 2012
The hot new Broadway hit Race follows a law firm taking on a racially-charged case. Two attorneys, one black and one white, are offered a chance to defend a white man charged with a crime against a black woman. A true case of “he said, she said”, Race will make you question what you thought, what you heard, and what you think you know.
Ken Ludwig’s The Fox on the FairwayMarch 2- 23, 2012This hilarious romp pulls the rug out from underneath the stuffy denizens of a private country club. Filled with mistaken identities, slamming doors, and over-the-top romantic shenanigans, it's a furiously paced comedy that recalls the Marx Brothers' classics. You won't want to miss this charmingly madcap adventure – about love, life, and man's eternal love affair with… golf. A Streetcar Named Desire by Tennessee WilliamsApril 6 – 22, 2012The Pulitzer Prize-winning play follows the story of Blanche DuBois, a weak and disturbed woman on a desperate prowl for some place in the world to call her own. Marlon Brando starred in the Broadway production and the 4-time Academy Award-winning film adaptation. This will mark the 65th Anniversary of this enduring Tennessee Williams classic.
