2024/25 Season

Las Cosas Extraordinarias

(Every Brilliant Thing)

by Duncan McMillan

September 12-22, 2024

 

You’re six years old. Mum’s in hospital. Dad says she’s “done something stupid.” She finds it hard to be happy. So you start to make a list of everything that’s brilliant about the world. Everything that’s worth living for. 1. Ice cream. 2. Kung Fu movies. 3. Burning things. 4. Laughing so hard you shoot milk out your nose. 5. Construction cranes. 6. Me. You leave it on her pillow. You know she’s read it because she’s corrected your spelling. Soon, the list will take on a life of its own. A play about depression and the lengths we will go to for those we love.

La Dama Boba

by Lope de Vega

May 15-25, 2025

 

La Dama Boba, a 400 year-old masterpiece from Spain’s Golden Age, is a wry, gender-defying comedy about two sisters engaged to marry but in love with the same man; one sister is educated and the other, silly. To compensate for her simpleness, the Lady "Simpleton" has the larger dowry which attracts the attention of her sister's fiancé, a poor nobleman. When the two suitors arrange to exchange prospective wives, chaos prevails. Yet the "silly" lady turns out not to be so simple after all.  Lope de Vega is one of Spain’s most prolific writers. He is only second to Cervantes in his importance during the Golden Age of Spanish literature.
