Calendar Girls

by Tim Firth

When Annie's husband John dies of leukemia, she and best friend Chris resolve to raise money for a new settee in the local hospital waiting room. They manage to persuade four fellow WI members to pose nude with them for an "alternative" calendar, with a little help from hospital porter and amateur photographer Lawrence. The news of the women's charitable venture spreads like wildfire, and hordes of press soon descend on the small village of Knapeley in the Yorkshire Dales. The calendar is a success, but Chris and Annie's friendship is put to the test under the strain of their new-found fame. Based on the true story of eleven WI members who posed nude for a calendar to raise money for the Leukemia Research Fund, CALENDAR GIRLS opened at the Chichester Festival Theatre and has since become the fastest selling play in British theatre history.  "Calendar Girls, makes you laugh, makes you cry, and leaves you feeling better about life than you did when you entered the theatre." - The Telegraph.  "Smash-hit show...hilarious yet touching play."

Souvenir

by Stephen Temperley

For more than half a century the name Florence Foster Jenkins has been guaranteed to produce explosions of derisive laughter. This wealthy society eccentric suffered under the delusion that she was a great coloratura soprano when she was in fact incapable of producing two consecutive notes in tune. Nevertheless, her annual recitals brought her extraordinary fame. As news of her terrible singing spread, so did her celebrity. Her growing mob of fans packed her recitals, stuffing handkerchiefs in their mouths to stifle their laughter—which Mrs. Jenkins blissfully mistook for cheers. The climax of her career was a single concert at Carnegie Hall in 1944. Famously, it sold out in two hours. SOUVENIR, by turn hilarious and poignant, tells her story through the eyes of her accompanist, Cosme McMoon. A musical odd-couple for the ages.  "A beguiling comic jewel with a heart." —Variety. SOUVENIR is downright hilarious… There weren't many voices as bad as Jenkins'. There aren't many theatrical experiences as good as SOUVENIR." —Boston Globe.

Taking Sides

by Ronald Harwood

TAKING SIDES takes place in the American Zone of occupied Berlin, in 1946. It is here the American portion of the De-Nazification Tribunal take over the questioning of Wilhelm Furtwängler, one of the outstanding conductors of his time. As the terrors of Nazism spread, many of Furtwängler's colleagues fled the country, but Furtwängler mysteriously chose to stay. Did he stay to do as much good as possible in the face of evil or did he stay to serve Hitler? Little is known of the motives and methods of the Tribunal, which is the focus of TAKING SIDES. What is known is that Furtwängler was humiliated and pursued.This may or may not have been justified—it all depends on the side you take. 

"A brave, wise and deeply moving play delineating the confrontation between culture, and power, between art and politics, between irresponsible freedom and responsible compromise. A gripping moral challenge in a cock sure and self-seeking age." — London Sunday Times.

Communicating Doors

by Alan Ayckbourn

This intricate time traveling comic thriller by the British master of farcical comedy delighted London and New York audiences. A London sex specialist from the future stumbles into a murder plot that sends her, compliments of a unique set of hotel doors, traveling back in time. She and two women who were murdered in 1998 and 1978 race back and forth in time trying to rewrite history and prevent their own violent ends. The frantic race begins when Poopay is hired for an evening at the Regal Hotel by an old man who eschews a fling in favor of confessing his role in the demise of his wives. Now a target, Poopay flees into the vestibule and somehow triggers the time machine. "A real knockout...A vastly entertaining blend of the West End drawing room thriller with one of Priestley's old time plays, where characters go whirling throughout time. Of course, Ayckbourn has added innumerable piquant and bizarre details of his own...This is a show to see." - The New York Post
