Mary & Me
by Irene Kelleher

November 13-22

Produced by Glass Dove Productions.

An original play by Irene Kelleher featuring Emily Karel; directed by Peter Josephson.

Ireland 1986. Fifteen year old Hannah begins a series of conversations with a statue of the Virgin Mary in a grotto. Hannah lives in a claustrophobic small town. Sure, she has friends, but no one who understands her, no one she can confide in who will listen to her. And she is going to need a lot of understanding. She is pregnant. Inspired by a true story, Mary and Me is a compellingly original imagining of a young woman’s search for understanding and meaning.

U.S. Premiere Production

NOTE: PG-13. Contains mature themes and adult language.

Fridays & Saturdays @ 7:30pm; Saturdays & Sundays @ 2pm.

Discovering Magic

with Andrew Pinard

This “mind-numbing, jaw-dropping, eye-opening” experience takes audiences on a guided tour of the impossible and the absurd. Using only the most ordinary of objects, accomplished actor, conjuror, puppeteer, storyteller, and award-winning performer Pinard brings the ordinary to life with the most surprising results.

The only show of its kind in the New England, audiences have traveled from throughout New England and beyond to experience sleight of hand, con games, psychology, history, science, comedy, political spin, and more through the eyes of a “perceptual engineer” on his quest to explore distortion and guile. Audiences can expect a truly unique experience and insight into how remarkable human perception and interpretation can be.

OCTOBER BRINGS A SPECIAL GUEST APPEARANCE BY MALIK HADDADI. Malik and Andrew have been friends for many years and have shared stages throughout New England. We are so excited to feature him in our very first ever guest artist appearance at the Hatbox.

Now in its 8th Season of monthly performances!

Wednesday @ 7:30pm.

Scene Changes
by Donald Tongue

December 11-20

Produced by New World Theatre.

"It's a Broadway traveling show, a theatrical purgatory, and the only reason any of us are here is because we failed to land a role in a production without wheels!"

So explains Samantha Wheelwright, ex-Brit, star of stage and film, but whose faltering career has landed her in the role of Mrs. Cratchit in a traveling production of A Christmas Carol. Her co-star playing Bob Cratchit has taken ill and is in hospital in Burlington, VT. When the show arrives in Concord NH the producer is forced to hire a young local actor. Enter Matthew Simmons, whose presence creates an unlikely pairing that immediately erupts into a colossal clash of wills as star-struck youthful enthusiasm slams headlong into mid-life cynical realism -- and the scene changes.

Fridays & Saturdays @ 7:30pm; Saturdays & Sundays @ 2pm.

A Cratchit Carol - A new play by New Hampshire playwright, DonaldTongue

It is Christmas Eve, 1843, at the accounting firm of Scrooge & Marley. While Marley is still dead, his partner, Ebenezer Scrooge, and his dutiful clerk, Robert Cratchit, are working out the accounts as the ticking of a clock marks the shortening of labor’s duty to the task at hand. Both have something to discuss with the other, but neither is able to find the appropriate moment.

This is a reimagining of the classic Dickens tale where the spirits, both past, and present, are ever-present.
