“I’ll Be Back Before Midnight” by Peter Colley

November 17 to 26, 2016

After enduring a recent nervous breakdown, Jan and her archaeologist husband, Greg, rent an old farmhouse haunted by the ghost of a murder victim, or so says their quirky landlord George. Jan’s mental recovery soon takes a turn for the worse due to the arrival of Laura, her husband’s manipulative sister. As well, a series of unexplained events that only seem to affect Jan occur, leading us to to question whether she’s suffering a nervous relapse – or if something more sinister is afoot.

“Five Women Wearing the Same Dress” by Alan Ball
February 16 to 25, 2017

This heart-felt comedy set in Knoxville, Tennessee follows the all-too-familiar tale of five acquaintances awkwardly crossing paths for what seems like a brief moment in their lives – their friends’ wedding. With conflicting interests and strong personalities, the five bridesmaids struggle at first to get along, but it isn’t long before the girls find something to unite them in friendship – a common dislike for the bride. Moments of friction resolve themselves giving way to an unbreakable bond between the women. Please be advised that strong language is used throughout this play.
