This year’s evening of theater includes the following three fantastic plays:
Shaving Lessons & Half-Windsor Knots, written by F.J. Hartland, and directed by Carol Chestnut. It’s the little things that count. Those things you do every day. Like driving. And shaving. A young man looks back on the little–but important–life lessons his father taught him. Shaving Lessons & Half-Windsor Knots won Best Play & Best Production at the Pittsburgh New Works Festival in 2010. The show features: Jim Froehlich, Larry Herrmann, and Sally Bachouchin-Janocko.
A Long Walk on the Beach, written by Matt Henderson, and directed by June Beighley. A lonely young woman who loves to read meets a mysterious male stranger with a metal detector on a desolate beach. They are both looking for something, but neither is sure what it is. Will they find it in each other? A very quirky, character driven play. Starring: Hannah Brizzi and Michael Brewer.
Moon Over Gomorrah, written by Byron Wilmot, and directed by Joe Eberle. Charles and Eileen travel to San Francisco to visit their actor son, Mark, and hear his big news. They are quite certain they know what his announcement will be, and they spend weeks preparing for this life changing revelation. But things don’t go quite as they anticipated, and their reactions are hilarious. Moon Over Gomorrah was nominated for Best Play, and was the winner of Best Production at the 2013 Pittsburgh New Works Festival! The show features: Steven Gallagher, Michael Brewer, Kevin McGuire, Ruthy Stapleton, and Debbie Wein.
Benjamin Bliss will be providing piano music throughout the evening.
Stay after the show on Saturday, Feb. 14 and meet the playwrights, directors and actors for a Talk Back with the audience. This is your chance to ask questions and learn about the shows you have just seen!
