Of Mice and Men

March 22 to April 20, 2019
By John Steinbeck
Directed by John Welsh
Produced by special arrangement with Dramatic Publishing

Two drifters, George and his friend Lennie, with delusions of living off the "fat of the land," have just arrived at a ranch to work for enough money to buy their own place. Lennie is a man-child, a little boy in the body of a dangerously powerful man. It's Lennie's obsessions with things soft and cuddly, that have made George cautious about with whom the gentle giant, with his brute strength, associates. His promise to allow Lennie to "tend to the rabbits" on their future land keeps Lennie calm, amidst distractions, as the overgrown child needs constant reassurance. But when a ranch boss' promiscuous wife is found dead in the barn with a broken neck, it's obvious that Lennie, albeit accidentally, killed her. George, now worried about his own safety, knows exactly where Lennie has gone to hide, and he meets him there. Realizing they can't run away anymore, George is faced with a moral question: how should he deal with Lennie before the ranchers find him and take matters into their own hands?

The Complete Works of Shakespeare [Abridged]

May 17 to June 15, 2019
By Adam Long, Daniel Singer and Jess Winfield.
Directed by Jenn Gomez
Produced by special arrangement with Broadway Play Publishing

Shakespeare may be turning in his grave, but the show that’s become a cult classic contains all 37 plays (plus sonnets) in just 97 minutes. As the comedies aren’t anywhere near as funny as the tragedies, all sixteen have been condensed into ‘Four Weddings and a Transvestite’, the history plays are transformed into a game of American football, Othello is performed in rap and Titus Andronicus becomes a TV cookery program. For the finale, Hamlet is staged first as a psychological exploration of Hamlet’s Ego and Ophelia’s Id, then performed in a matter of minutes and, for the finale, performed backwards. For lovers of Shakespeare everywhere. “What cheek! What nerve! What sheer, heavenly, unadulterated fun!” Sunday Express.

Frankenstein

September 20 to October 19
by Mary Shelly
adapted by Dorothy Louise
By special arrangement with Dramatic Publishing
Directed by Mat MacDonald
September 20 to October 19

Dorothy Louise's remarkable new adaptation of Mary Shelley's classic story rescues it from simplistic notions of horror and fear. She remains faithful to Shelley's intention to show how the Creature of Victor Frankenstein gradually grows into malignity because of the continual rejection he experiences and the refusal of his creator to respond to his very human needs. Amateur and professional companies will find this to be the most successful Frankenstein ever adapted for the stage.
