Women on the Edge by Bertolt Brecht
Trinity Episcopal Church
1 Trinity Plaza
Show Date: March 6th, 2009, reception at 7:30pm, Reading at 8pm.

Women on the Edge is comprised of two outstanding monologues: The Jewish Wife by Bertolt Brecht, English version by Eric Bentley and Bed Among the Lentils by Alan Bennett. The Jewish Wife opens with a woman saying goodbye to friends, then rehearsing a speech she intends to deliver to her husband. The awful truth is revealed. She is the Jewish wife of a Nazi scientist and she knows it is better for him if she goes away. In Bed Among the Lentils, Susan is the vicar’s wife. She can barely cope with the lifestyle, and the do- gooders and well meaning women who attach themselves to her husband. Susan hits the sherry bottle – or the communion wine if there is nothing else at hand…

Rabbit Hole by David Lindsay-Abaire

?Show Dates: March 13 – 29, 2009 (various show times)

Winner of the 2006 Pulitzer Prize, “David Lindsay-Abaire has crafted a drama that’s not just a departure, but a revelation-an intensely emotional examination of grief, laced with wit, insightfulness, compassion and searing honesty.” – Variety. Becca and Howie Corbett have everything a family could want, until a life-shattering accident turns their world upside down and leaves the couple drifting perilously apart. RABBIT HOLE charts their bittersweet search for comfort in the darkest of places and for a path that will lead them back into the light of day.

Durang, Durang by Christopher Durang
The Toledo Club
Show Date: April 11th, 2009, reception at 7:30pm, Reading at 8pm.

This is an evening of six one-acts. The Rep has selected three of the one acts for this irreverent, hysterical evening of parodies beginning with Mrs. Sorken, an introductory welcoming speech in which the over-articulate, somewhat dotty Mrs. Sorken explains her likes and dislikes about theatre and what the audience can expect that evening. For Whom the Southern Bell Tolls is a delicious parody of The Glass Menagerie, the final one act, ‘dentity crisis deals with repression, hysteria, suicide, incest, mania and the destruction of childhood myths. Adult themes and language
