Men On Boats

By Jaclyn Backhaus

Ten explorers. Four boats. One Grand Canyon. Men on Boats tells the true(ish) history of an 1869 expedition to chart the course of the Colorado River. “…marvelously destabilizing both as history and theater. The stalwartness and selfishness of the adventurers—their cockiness and cluelessness—become biting satire when sent up by women." —New York Magazine. “[a] rollicking history pageant…[the play] makes canny use of the obvious distance between performers and their roles to help bridge the distance between then and now… And ultimately, you feel, the play respects its bold if fallible pioneers, in all their natural bravery and fearfulness.” —The New York Times.

Urinetown: the Musical

Urinetown: The Musical is a timely skewering of runaway capitalism, reckless populism, and the human tendency toward acts of dangerous irresponsibility. But mostly, it’s about the dangers of staging a show with a terrible title. —Town and Gown Players

The Shakers of Mount Pleasant Will Hold a Peace Conference Next Month

By Arlene Hutton

As the size and strength of an upstate New York Shaker village are waning, wealthy progressive women from New York City (some of them Jewish) take an interest in Mount Lebanon. Inspired to host a peace conference drawing attendees from all over the world, the Shaker women struggle just to find peace amongst themselves. They are divided by gender, economics, theology, diet, and history. But the conference does happen, and its message of hope reaches out to us in the present, encouraging us all to do better.

Cymbeline

By William Shakespeare

Cymbeline is King of Britain. He marries an unpleasant woman with an arrogant son named Cloten. Cymbeline arranges the marriage of his beautiful daughter, Imogen, to Cloten, but she defies him and marries the poor but worthy Postumus. Cymbeline banishes Postumus. Before he goes, each gives the other a gift. Several plot lines follow, involving disguises, mistaken identity, deceit, treachery, and poison. The villain Iachimo bets a large sum of money against Postumus’ ring that he can seduce Imogen. In a traditional comic ending, Iachimo confesses, the characters reveal themselves, all misunderstandings are resolved, and the lovers are reunited.
