2005-2006 Season

Black Coffee

by Agatha Christie
Directed by Robert Cusack
October 28 thru
November 12, 2005

This little known mystery will surprise and delight Christie fans. The story concerns a physicist named Sir Claude Amory who has come up with a formula for an atom bomb (Black Coffee was written in 1934!). In the first act, Sir Claude is poisoned (in his coffee, naturally) and Hercule Poirot is called in to solve the case. He does so after many wonderful twists and turns in true Christie tradition. A surprisingly yummy brew of good old-fashioned light mystery/comedy.

 

Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

by Tennessee Williams
Directed by Frank Gaffney
January 13 thru 28, 2006

Tennesse Williams' classic drama Cat on a Hot Tin Roof concerns a young man's disaffection and descent into alcoholism following the death of his college friend, and his wife's efforts to make him stop drinking so that he can take over his dying father's plantation. The play won Williams his third New York Drama Critics' Circle Award and his second Pulitzer Prize (his first being for A Streetcar Named Desire).

Room Service

by John Murray & Allen Boretz
Directed by Dan Friedman
March 10 thru 25, 2006

A screwball homage to theater made famously funny by the Marx Brothers, this play, first produced by George Abbott is one of the great comedy successes of all times.  A nimble-witted producer, living on credit with several actors in a Broadway hotel, is desperately in need of a good script.  He finds one, and by great good luck, he also finds an angel with $15,000.  During a few hectic days, the producer tries to outwit his creditors while staging his play at the same time.

Sly Fox

by Larry Gelbart (based on “Volpone” by Ben Johnson)
Directed by Joel Fenster
May 5 thru 20, 2006

Foxwell J. Sly is the scheming, rapacious miser bent on extracting fortunes from a trio of rich, greedy opportunists. Sly, pretending to be on his death bed, says he will name each of the three as his sole heir. The extent that the trio will go to acquire Sly's fortune knows no bounds. One goes so far as to disinherit his only son; another offers up his wife to the lecherous Sly. Assisting him is Simon Able, a gambler Sly saved from financial destitution now paying off his debts to Sly through service.
