“One of the most disciplined and satisfying new American plays to reach Broadway in the past decade. A truly affecting play.”
–Terry Teachout, Wall Street Journal

~*~*~*~

A brood of famous and longing-to-be-famous creative artists have gathered at their summer home during the Williamstown Theatre Festival. When the weekend takes an unexpected turn, everyone is forced to improvise, inciting a series of simmering jealousies, romantic outbursts, and passionate soul-searching. Both witty and compelling, THE COUNTRY HOUSE provides a piercing look at a family of performers coming to terms with the roles they play in each other’s lives.

When a murder occurs in Clarissa’s drawing-room she suspects her young stepdaughter Pippa. Things are not helped by the imminent arrival of husband Henry with a VIP in tow who might take a dim view of bodies in the drawing-room. However, by the time Henry gets home, the murderer has been unmasked and all is normal, so normal that Henry is utterly unable to believe Clarissa when she explains exactly why there are no refreshments ready for their honoured guest.

SEASON: 4th to 19th June 2021

Written by James Cawood
Directed by Jan Saussey

A spine-tingling and terrifying ghost story full of shocks, twists, gothic atmosphere and a good measure of comedy!...

The Revival is a play about a play, where our audience instantaneously become the invisible bystanders to a dress rehearsal that is not going at all well.

Synopsis:

The cast of Lucian O’Keefe’s 1946 classic ghost play Scared to Death are gathered and ready for their final dress rehearsal before opening night. Actors are bickering, one of them can’t learn their lines, the director is on the edge of a nervous breakdown and to top it all off, the ghostly happenings of the play seem to be encroaching onto the real world. Slowly but surely fear takes hold as tales of the play’s curse seem to hold true and the cast find themselves caught up in a terrifying ghost story.

“Death & Taxes” is a madcap financial farce set in the very topical world of insurance and investments. It’s a crime story, ghost story and hilarious comedy. Featuring dodgy deals, a potty psychic, a fishy tax inspector, a nutty cop, murder, mayhem and a hairy yak!

Gareth Burke, Destiny Life’s top agent for 3 years in a row, wants to win the trip to Hawaii and take gorgeous receptionist Tiffany with him. But Lucille Potts is determined to be the first female agent to top the sales figures and has a plan to ensure victory. Before he can take the prize, Gareth must overcome the obstacles in his path - an over-bearing wife, a manic-depressive corporate motivator, the police, the Inland Revenue, and even his own untimely death.

OPENING NIGHT TONIGHT

Movie mogul David O. Selznick has just shut down his mega-budget version of Gone With the Wind. Determined to produce a rewrite in five days, he engages the reluctant services of ace script doctor, Ben Hecht (possibly the only one in America who hasn’t read the novel) and a new director, Victor Fleming, poached from the set of The Wizard of Oz. Selznick locks himself in his office with his two collaborators, and a marathon creative session begins.
