"The Shadow Box" (Tickets Here)
From Will of the Wind Productions:
Will of the Wind Productions is proud to present the Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize winning play, The Shadow Box!
In this compelling drama written by Michael Cristofer, three terminal cancer patients dwell in separate cottages on a hospital grounds. The three are attended and visited by family and close friends: Agnes and her mother, Felicity, estranged further by the latter's dementia; Brian and Beverly, whose marital complications are exacerbated by Brian's new lover, Mark; and Joe and Maggie, unready for the strain of Joe's impending death and its effect on their teenage son.
This powerful and moving story is being directed by Allison Barr, and will be performed in the beautiful Firehouse Theatre located inside LHUCA.
"Collected Stories" (Tickets Here)
From Hub Theatre Group:
Hub Theatre Group presents "Collected Stories" by Donald Margulies, at the Talkington Center for the Arts Black Box Theatre on the All Saints Episcopal School campus.
In Donald Margulies’ Collected Stories, grad student Lisa is thrilled to be under the tutelage of her literary idol, Ruth Steiner. Over the years, Lisa becomes Ruth’s personal assistant and gradually her friend, as Ruth helps her hone her writing abilities. But as Lisa’s career begins to flourish and Ruth’s begins to fade, can the tenuous relationship between mentor and mentee survive ambition, rivalry, and eventual betrayal? Collected Stories explores the complicated relationship between two independent women as they struggle to define what, if anything, is off-limits in art.
