By Hero P. Carlisle
Directed by Jill Johnson
The classic movie travels back to battle it out with the Bard in this new retelling of the beloved American coming of age comedy-drama.
It's Florence Italy. The Middle Ages. The Renaissance movement has only just begun as five strangers start their day, each bound to their place in the harsh caste system of the day..
They were five total strangers, meeting for the first time. A scholarly acolyte of the Monastery, The wealthy merchant's daughter. The athletic soldier-in-training. The motley rogue and a bleak outsider. They had nothing in common, but before the day was over, they broke the rules. Bared their souls. And touched each other in a way they could only do... in the middle ages...

Dead Mans Cell Phone
March 13th – April 19th
Friday & Saturday at 8pm, Sundays at 2pm
By Sarah Ruhl
Directed by Brian Johnson
An incessantly ringing cell phone in a quiet café. A stranger at the next table who has had enough. And a dead man—with a lot of loose ends. So begins Dead Man's Cell Phone, a wildly imaginative new comedy by MacArthur "Genius" Grant recipient and Pulitzer Prize finalist, Sarah Ruhl, author of The Clean House and Eurydice. A work about how we memorialize the dead—and how that remembering changes us—it is the odyssey of a woman forced to confront her own assumptions about morality, redemption, and the need to connect in a technologically obsessed world.
Jean – 20s to 30s. Pretty in a quiet way. Awkward, nervous, but longs to connect with people. Good-hearted, imaginative and knows how to spin a tale when needed. Becomes more self-assured as the play progresses.
Gordon – 30s to early 40s. Dead. Mysterious. People love him even though they don’t know quite why. Knows what he wants and expects to get it. Has a wonderful (and lengthy) monologue at beginning of Act II.
Mrs. Gottlieb – 50s to 70s. Gordon’s mother. Holds herself in high esteem. Can be brash, cruel, outspoken. Can also be exceedingly well mannered. A bit overly dramatic at times.
Hermia – 30s to 40s. Gordon’s widow. A former star of the Ice Follies. Uptight, nervous, straight-laced—until she has a few drinks in her. Lonely.
Dwight – 30s to 40s. Gordon’s brother. Works in a stationery store. Hiding in the shadows of his older brother. Quiet, passionate, sensitive, caring. Knows how to listen.
The Other Woman – 20s to 40s. Mysterious, dominating, vain, direct, and sophisticated. A true femme fatale straight out of a B movie. Requires two different accents: one an unidentifiable worldly accent and the other optimally an Eastern European accent.
