What the world needs now is love, laughter, and stories that bring us together. And what accomplishes that better than something a bit familiar? A bit comforting? With a dash of daring & a touch of the unexpected?  We’ve picked our season to deliver all that, and more.

 Written by Joseph Kesselring Directed by Michael Ross  Meet the Brewster family: descended from the Mayflower settlers, but now composed of insane homicidal maniacs, including two spinster aunts who have taken to murdering lonely old men; a brother who believes he is Theodore Roosevelt; and a murderous brother who has received plastic surgery performed by an alcoholic accomplice, Dr. Einstein, to conceal his identity.  Another beloved theater classic about a misguided mission to serve humanity, and a wildly funny, absurd comedy.

 Written by William Luce Directed by Sharon Winagar    Poet Emily Dickenson was little known in her lifetime but has since become an iconic voice of her generation. This one-woman show requires an actress to portray 15 different characters, and who better to do this than Jennifer King, who you’ll no doubt remember from our sold-out run of  Bad Dates .  Set in Dickenson’s Amherst, Massachusetts home, this play makes use of her poems, diaries and letters - recollecting encounters with the significant people in her life. Funny, poignant, and classic.

 Written by Garson Kanin Directed by Carl Jordan   Junk tycoon Harry Brock gets more than he bargained for when he tries to buy some respectability and sophistication for his brash girlfriend Billie Dawn ( played by   Marquee Theater Journalists Association Awards   winner for  Becky’s New Car  Melissa Claire ).  When Harry hires a political reporter to educate Billie so she won't embarrass him during an important trip to Washington, she learns a lot more than grammar and diction - and hilarious complications ensue.
