Independence

April 12 & 13, 7:30 pm, April 14, 2:00 pm

A hilarious dramedy where three sisters grapple with the fate of their mentally disturbed mother. The setting is the small town of Independence, Iowa, the lifelong home of Evelyn Briggs. Her oldest daughter, Kess, is a university professor in Minneapolis who returned home at the request of her sister, Jo, concerned for Evelyn’s mental health. Kess, a professed lesbian, wants to cut her family ties once and for all; Jo, an incurable romantic and longtime virgin, has now become pregnant; while Sherry, salty-tongued and amoral, wants only to finish high school so she can leave home for good. In the end, only an arbitrary independence can be reached, where each of the protagonists must find her own heaven—or hell.

A Doll's House - Staged Reading

May 4 at 2:00 pm, May 5 at 7:00 pm

To prepare for our Season 32 show of A Doll's House Part 2, we are doing a staged reading of A Doll's House! The play centers on an ordinary family—Torvald Helmer, a bank lawyer, and his wife, Nora, and their three little children. Torvald supposes himself the ethical member of the family, while his wife assumes the role of the pretty and irresponsible little woman in order to flatter him. Into this arrangement intrude several hard-minded outsiders, one of whom threatens to expose a fraud that Nora had once committed without her husband’s knowledge in order to obtain a loan needed to save his life.
