| The Liar
May 7 at 6:30pm
Hosted by Mina Hartong
Featured Restaurant Partner: Kibberia Middle Eastern Restaurant & Cafe

Dorante, a first-rate fabulist, has a gift for stretching the truth. But when he falls in love he begins to weave an increasingly intricate web of lies that even he can't keep up with. David Ives (Broadway's Venus in Fur and Lives of the Saints) sets the scene for a hilarious misadventure of romance that's short on truth but long on laughter.

Mina Hartong is the author of three one woman shows (including Jerome Grant Recipient Mimi’s Wedding) and an award winning theater educator. She has toured her solo performances internationally including The Duplex, The Oval Theater in London, Gay Games in Amsterdam, Mardi Gras in Sydney, Australia and fringe festivals in Montreal and Minneapolis. She has performed stand up comedy at Don’t Tell Mama’s, Gotham Comedy Club and Caroline’s and several Pride Weeks, including Washington, DC. After fifteen years in Brooklyn, she recently relocated to Westport. She teaches theater and directs productions at the Regional Center for the Arts in Trumbull and is a teaching artist with Westport Country Playhouse.

June 11 at 6:30pm
Featured Restaurant Partner: Terrain Garden Cafe 
With music by Jay Stollman

England on the Eve of WWII. The working-class Stott family spend their days gabbing, singing songs, and soldiering on despite their meager rations. When Helen, the eldest daughter, finds herself unexpectedly courted by a soldier on leave she can’t believe her new-found joy. No man has ever found her of interest. Immediate, touching, and filled with humor, And a Nightingale Sang weaves a beautiful story of one family’s perseverance through uncertain times.


Love & Money
July 23 at 6:30pm
Featured Restaurant Partner: Coming Soon!


Wealthy widow Cornelia Cunningham has led a life of grace and privilege—and she’s making up for it as fast as she can. Determined to donate almost everything she owns before the end, Cornelia’s plans are questioned when an ambitious and ingratiating young man, who may be the grandson she never knew she had, arrives to claim his inheritance.

 Bedroom Farce 
August 27 at 6:30pm
Featured Restaurant Partner: Coming Soon!

 


The bedroom is the one room that sees the best, the worst, and the most of us. To the couples in Alan Ayckbourn’s rollicking comedy Bedroom Farce, it’s also a dining room, a workshop, a cloakroom, and a boxing ring. Over the course of one very long Saturday evening, in three separate bedrooms, the roles and relationships of four couples, and one almost love triangle, are laid bare, complete with squabbles, bothers, a few bruises, and a hilariously touching epiphany.


Broken Glass
October 8 at 6:30pm
Featured Restaurant Partner: Coming Soon!


In celebration of longtime Connecticut resident Arthur Miller’s one-hundredth birthday, the Playhouse is proud to present one of his most arresting
and psychologically penetrating works, Broken Glass, a powerful account of what happens when the lines between what we believe and what is true, between our private fears and public fixations, begin to fade away.
