Second Stage 2019-2020 Season

The Lion in Winter by James Goldman

Sibling rivalry, adultery, and dungeons – The Lion in Winter is a modern-day classic.  Comedic in tone, dramatic in action – the play tells the story of the Plantagenet family, who are locked in a free-for-all of competing ambitions to inherit a kingdom.

The Laramie Project by Moises Kaufmann

In October 1998, Matthew Shepard, a student at the University of Wyoming was kidnapped, severely beaten, and left tied to a prairie fence.  Matthew was the target of this brutal assault because he was gay, and he died days later as a result of his injuries.  Moises Kaufmann and fellow members of the Tectonic Theater Project conducted more than 200 interviews with the people of Laramie, Wyoming.  Based on those interviews, The Laramie Project is a breathtaking collage that explores the depths to which humanity can sink and the heights of compassion of which we are capable.

Dates: November 21 – 23 at 8 p.m., November 24 at 3 p.m.

Mrs. California by Doris Baizley

The time is pre-women’s lib 1955. The place: a Los Angeles hotel, where a homemakers contest is in progress.  The contestants are expected to demonstrate the skills of the ideal housewife in an attempt to be crowned as Mrs. California.  This play illustrates what can happen when one woman decides to stop doing what she is supposed to do, and starts doing what she was meant to do.
