RIPCORD by David Lindsey-Abaire
(November 8-17, 2019 / Habitat for Humanity / CANTON)
A sunny room on an upper floor is prime real estate in the Bristol Place Senior Living Facility, so when cranky Abby is forced to share her quarters with new-arrival Marilyn, she has no choice but to get rid of the chipper woman by any means necessary. A seemingly harmless bet between the old women escalates into a dangerous game of one-upmanship that reveals not just the tenacity of these opponents, but also deeper truths that each would rather hide.
WHEN WE WERE YOUNG AND UNAFRAID by Sarah Treem
(March 6-15, 2020 / Aurora Community Theatre / AURORA)
In the early 1970s, before the Violence Against Women Act, Agnes has turned her quiet bed and breakfast into one of the few spots where victims of domestic violence can seek refuge. But to Agnes’s dismay, her latest runaway is beginning to influence her college-bound daughter. As the drums of a feminist revolution grow louder outside of Agnes’s tiny world, she’s forced to confront her own presumptions about the women she’s spent her life helping.
WATCH ON THE RHINE by Lillian Hellman
(May 22-30, 2020 / Weathervane Playhouse / AKRON)
1940. Washington D.C. Well-to-do Fanny and David Farrelly await the arrival of their daughter and sister Sara, who has fled Germany with her children and husband, a member of the Anti-Nazi Resistance. When another houseguest threatens to expose their identity, a series of events stretch and test everyone's loyalties. Published in 1941 by Hellman, a brilliant activist in her own right, this political thriller is a timely examination of moral obligation and sacrifice.
OUR COUNTRY’S GOOD by Timberlake Wertenbaker
(August 7-16, 2020 / Ensemble Theatre / CLEVELAND)
June 1789. In the penal colony that will become Sydney, Australia, a lieutenant is tasked with putting on a play to celebrate the king's birthday. The only catch? His cast members are the English convicts who populate this prison camp. Few of them can read, let alone act, and the play is being produced amidst food shortages and barbaric punishments. Will this endeavor have the desired civilizing influence, or will everything implode before the curtain goes up?
