Our Mother's Brief Affair   

Black Curtain Readers' Theatre

April 23,24, 2021

On the verge of death for the umpteenth time, Anna makes a shocking confession to her grown children: an affair from her past that just might have resonance beyond the family. But how much of what she says is true? While her children try to separate fact from fiction, Anna fights for a legacy she can be proud of. With razor-sharp wit and extraordinary insight, Our Mother’s Brief Affair considers the sweeping, surprising impact of indiscretions both large and small. Says The New York Times, Our Mother’s Brief Affair is a “sort of everyday detective story”, illuminating “how little we know about the lives that impinge upon and shape our own.”

Things Being What They Are

Black Curtain Readers' Theatre

May 8 & 9, 2021

The minute Bill moves into his new condo, anxiously waiting for his unfaithful wife and his furniture, his nosy neighbor Jack appears at the door - looking for some beer and sympathy. At first Jack appears to be a nightmare neighbor - intrusive, needy, boorish - but gradually Bill's perception of his new "friend" deepens. While Bill learns how Jack has managed to lose his wife's trust and his children's love, he also discovers that Jack is wrestling with circumstances that would challenge the best of us. In this wistful and off-beat comedy, Things Being What They Are follows an unlikely bond between two regular guys as they debate the meaning of love, loss, masculinity, and the needs that bring people together and drive them apart.
