In Oscar Wilde's brilliantly witty comedy, fate catches up to politician Robert Chiltern when a mysterious woman produces a letter revealing a past misdeed. Is this a public scandal or private shame? One of the more serious of Wilde's social comedies, An Ideal Husband focuses on the often corrupt underpinnings of wealth and power, how information and knowledge in politics hold sway, and how public and personal morality can collide. An Ideal Husband also takes a good-natured poke at the institution of marriage, asking viewers if it is it truly possible to try to have an "ideal" marriage. In the end, Wilde's message is surprisingly benign: Only love really matters; only love will lead to happiness.
Times are tough for Elvis impersonator Casey, who performs his act for an audience of zero in a Panama City, Florida dive bar. With the rent long overdue and a baby on the way, desperate Casey watches as a seasoned drag queen named Miss Tracy Mills brings her show to town. After filling in for one of Tracy's regular girls on short notice one night, Casey decides to trade in his sequin jumpsuit for a sequin dress, and under Miss Tracy's tutelage, finally achieves stardom.
Theatre of Yugen continues it's 38-year tradition of presenting Japanese Kyogen comedy in English, with our spring performance of two bite-size plays. We're looking at what happens when you take something old and something new and mix 'em together.
We begin the evening with the English-language premiere of the classic Kyogen play Nukegara (The Demon's Shell). Laugh with us at this cross between a buddy comedy and a comedy of manners, as the Master teaches his servant Taro the value of holding your liquor. And then enjoy a meditation on the ephemeral nature of sound and time, with Tomorrow's Sound, a brand-new play written and composed by Zhoushu Herakleitos Ziporyn. Performance techniques from Kyogen, Noh, and Kabuki infuse the piece, set against a completely original soundscape.
Fueled by such unforgettable songs as "Me and Bobby McGee," "Piece of My Heart," "Mercedes Benz," "Cry Baby," and "Summertime," a remarkable cast, and breakout performances, A Night With Janis Joplin is a musical journey celebrating Janis and her biggest musical influences—icons like Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Odetta, Nina Simone, and Bessie Smith, who inspired one of rock 'n' roll's greatest legends.
Playwright Branden Jacobs-Jenkins won the Obie Award for his radical, incendiary, and subversively funny riff on Dion Boucicault's once-popular 1859 mustache-twirling melodrama. Judge Peyton is dead, and his plantation Terrebonne is on the brink of foreclosure. George, the high-minded heir apparent, falls for the lovely Zoe, who's one-eighth black. But the bigoted plantation queen has eyes for George, and the dastardly overseer M'Closky plots to keep Zoe and Terrebonne for himself. A spectacular collision of the antebellum South and 21st-century cultural politics, An Octoroon is "This decade's most eloquent theatrical statement on race in America today," says the New York Times.
Sharon is practical, from Iowa. Robyn is a Bronx-born vegan. Both are "bad-ass" women in their 50s dealing with isolation, aging and identity. They remind us that second chances are possible and transformation can grow beneath peals of uproarious laughter.
In the overwhelming quiet of the woods, six runaways from city life embark on a silent retreat. As these strangers confront internal demons both profound and absurd, their vows of silence collide with the achingly human need to connect. Filled with awkward humor, this strange and compassionate new play asks how we address life's biggest questions when words fail us.
In the opulent Presidential Palace of an unnamed country, four women await the arrival of the embattled dictator -- his wife, her best friend, a British journalist, and a translator -- while a revolution grows violent outside. As the political tension escalates, time refracts and earlier scenes replay from different perspectives. Morgan, the award-winning British playwright and screenwriter (The Iron Lady, Suffragette), takes the audience on a breath-taking journey with a fascinating theatricality that is at once compassionate, dispassionate, and probing.
Two young men. A battle rages in the distance. Game on. Inspired by The Iliad and the epic tale of Achilles and Patroclus, warplay is a shockingly funny, poetic and radical re-imagining of one of the oldest love stories in all of Western literature.
By JC Lee (Writer on ABC's How to Get Away with Murder and HBO's Looking), Directed by NCTC Artistic Associate Ben Randle.
What in Tarnation?, an American farce written and directed by Jeff Bedillion, is set in the fictitious small southern town of Tarnation, where all hell breaks loose when the marriage equality law is overturned. The conservative Pastor Aiden and Faith, his right-wing sidekick at the Sunnyside Baptist Church, revel in the "glorious" news that gay marriage is again criminalized. However, two young lesbians will stop at nothing to ensure that they are married, even if it means barricading themselves inside the church. This raucous play dissects homophobia and intolerance with cutting-edge comedy and razor-sharp wit.
Note: This show is intended for mature audiences.
The Winter's Tale explores the unsteady, unsettling, poisonous realm of jealousy and distrust as a childhood friendship is irrevocably torn apart by a grievous misunderstanding.
King Leontes of Sicilia accuses his pregnant wife, Hermione, of infidelity with best friend and fellow King of neighboring Bohemia, Polixenes. His rage and misguided tyranny results in the plot to have the King of Bohemia killed, banish the newborn baby girl, imprison his innocent wife, and turn his stunned staff and nation against him. Directed by Artistic Director of AASC, L. Peter Callender, this study of love, jealousy, tyranny and ultimate forgiveness will bring all the complicated plot twists, memorable characters and one of Shakespeare's most magical and romantic and unforgettable endings to life.
An innocuous comment at a dinner of two interracial couples leads to a surreal escalation of Cold War-style paranoia. You Mean to Do Me Harm is a psychological exploration of Chinese and American foreign relations, and of the personal relations we hold most dear.
It seems that hardly a day goes by that the media doesn't confront us with yet another unspeakable act. Kirsten Greenidge's Zenith teases out the complex and interwoven threads of one life that ends shockingly. Daring in structure and rich in detail, this play makes us question whether we can ever truly fathom another human being.
