Now in rehearsal. . .
Written by Yazmina Reza, translated by Christopher Hampton
Directed by Rick Rose, Assistant Director Gay McCommons
Playing June 28 through June 30, 2013
A playground altercation brings together two sets of parents to resolve the situation. As the meeting progresses and alcohol flows, tensions emerge and the gloves come off.
Although it often presents shows that ordinarily would not appear on the Mainstage slate (because they are too controversial or unfamiliar to a general audience), Second Stage has included a number of titles that are often done as Mainstage productions elsewhere. The Town & Gown Second Stage Series offers a wide variety of shows--from comedies to dramas, from musical revues to original works. Those who direct and act in these Second Stage productions include some of the theatre's most experienced and talented performers, who come together on a small budget in order to add nuance and excitement to the theatre season.
Normally, the Second Stage shows run the weekend following the closing of a Mainstage show. No reservations are necessary, but patrons are advised to arrive fifteen minutes before curtain to guarantee a seat. General admission is $5.00.
Even though Town & Gown doesn't think of Second Stage productions as "big shows" (some have as few as two or three in the cast), there is scope for quite ambitious works. Look at this list of past entries: Julius Caesar, Amadeus, Requiem for a Heavyweight, Fool for Love, The Chairs, Burning Patience, Payback, The Gift of the Mayfly, Battery, Scrooge and Marley, The Buried Child, Bully, Arms and the Man, Soap Opera, The Ugly Duckling, The East-West Relation, Another Perfect Day in East Hampton, The Physicists, 'Round Robin, He Said She Said, Other People's Money, The Tragical History of Doctor Faustus, The Long Voyage Home and Other Plays of the Sea, Art, Misery, Henry V and several musical revues.
Town & Gown programs Second Stage three times a year. Any member of the Town and Gown Players may submit a Second Stage proposal. The deadline and Board approval schedule is as follows:
