Moon Over Buffalo is a raucous farce about a dysfunctional theater troupe performing in Buffalo, New York, in 1953. This backstage play by Ken Ludwig (author of Lend Me A Tenor) centers on fading stars George and Charlotte Hay, the diva lead actress, Charlotte Hay, is barely tolerant of her philandering semi-alcoholic husband, George, and mishaps and confusions arise for the company when presented the opportunity of famed film director Frank Capra attending a performance to possibly cast the two for a movie. Their temperamental daughter Rosalind splits time between fiancé Howard and ex-fiancé Paul, the company’s stage manager. Charlotte’s nearly-deaf mother, Ethel, and Richard, a would-be suitor for Charlotte, make their contributions to the mayhem as Eileen, a young actress in the company, reveals her pregnancy to all. The hopeful actors sprint through the tangle of confusion to produce a woefully misbegotten mixture of two different plays in their hoped-for presentation piece, and in the play’s climactic scene, manage to set everything right by still more series of coincidences and mishaps. Overall, Moon Over Buffalo is a fast-paced and energetic night of entertainment.

"FOOD COURT
A man (Kyle) and woman (Kitty) are serendipitously thrown together at—of all places—a funeral home. They are there to view a body. The deceased is Kitty’s cousin and Kyle’s best friend. After chatting, they realize they are not only attracted to each other, but have a great deal in common. Is this the beginning of a budding romance? Or is it something else? They’re in a funeral home….so it’s something else.

“DISCOUNT MURDER”
We meet Mr. Norman Fairchild, the world’s most inexpensive professional assassin. He works
cheap, he works clean, he works fast, and most importantly, he works smart. And because he
works smart, his services are always in demand, which is why a local building contractor has
come calling. By the end of the play, the assassin and the client have learned a time-honored
lesson: Money isn’t everything.

Written by Stephen Mallatratt, based on the novel by Susan Hill
Directed by David Chorley



The framework of this spine tingler is unusual: a lawyer hires an actor to tutor him in recounting to family and friends a story that has long troubled him concerning events that transpired when he attended the funeral of an elderly recluse. There he caught sight of the woman in black, the mere mention of whom terrifies the locals, for she is a specter who haunts the neighborhood where her illegitimate child was accidentally killed. Anyone who sees her dies! The lawyer has invited some friends to watch as he and the actor recreate the events of that dark and stormy night. A classic of the genre.
