By A.R. Gurney
Directed by Mark Lamos
April 30 – May 18

A wry and witty portrait of a vanishing culture.

In A.R. Gurney’s celebrated masterpiece, nearly a half century passes in the course of a single day in the most singular of rooms—where people gather, meals are eaten, conversations begin, and generations converge. A witty and heartfelt work from a Playhouse favorite, The Dining Room chronicles the American family and its vanishing traditions.

By George Kelly
Directed by Nicholas Martin
June 11 – 29

An unconventional story of a conventional American family.

Aubrey Piper is a blowhard, a first rate annoyance, and a shameless liar—a show-off of the worst kind. He also happens to be marrying into the Fisher family. Whatever will they do? Join the Fishers as they learn to cope with this human oddity who has blustered his way into their lives. In this classic and unexpected comedy, George Kelly explores the unique combination of reserved skepticism and swaggering confidence that make up two sides of the American character.

By Joe Orton
Directed by David Kennedy
July 16 – August 3

An outrageously wicked British farce.

The late Mrs. McLeavy is not resting in peace—her son and his cohort of thieving miscreants have upset her final repose in this outrageous romp by the master of British farce. With hilarious depravities around every turn, this wickedly funny look at the most unmannerly of people is sure to leave you feeling just a little bit criminal.

A World Premiere
By Carly Mensch
Directed by Mark Brokaw
August 20 – September 7

A World Premiere about family and belonging.

Sixteen-year-old Julie won’t come clean about where she spent this past weekend, but it was not on the college recruiting trip she led her parents to believe. What could she possibly be hiding? Whatever her mother and father imagine, nothing can prepare them for the actual truth in this wise, funny play about the surprising choices we make—and the people we disappoint—when we forge our own way in life.

By John Murray and Allen Boretz
Directed by Mark Lamos
October 8 – 26

A classic of American comedy.

Gordon Miller has finally discovered a formula for Broadway success: be bold, brash, and option a brilliant script by a promising young writer. What he hasn’t discovered is a willing financial backer. Will the show ever go on? Never has the madcap behind-the-scenes business of putting on a play been as hilarious as it is in this classic American farce.
