Who Am I This Time? (& Other Conundrums of Love)

by Aaron Posner from Kurt Vonnegut

Directed by Jay Briggs

The subject of this play—as we are told at the outset—is love, pure and complicated. Set on the stage of The North Crawford Mask & Wig Club ("the finest community theatre in central Connecticut!"), three early comic masterpieces by Kurt Vonnegut  are sewn together into a seamless evening of hilarity and humanity. This is a smart, delightful love story for the whole family.

October 18-28, 2018. HHPS Main Street Theatre, 3000 Main Street.

Bad Dates

by Theresa Rebeck

Directed by Peggy Trecker White

Confessions of a single mother and self-described restaurant idiot-savant abound in this thoroughly charming, intoxicating and slyly sweet one-woman show. This idiosyncratic journey of self-discovery involves the Romanian mob, a Buddhist rainstorm, a teenage daughter, shoes, and quite a few very bad dates. 

December 12-16, 2018. Soundwaves, 7 Lagoon Rd.

A Doll’s House, Part 2

by Lucas Hnath

Directed by Christine Albright

In the final scene of Ibsen’s 1879 masterwork, Nora Helmer makes the shocking decision to leave her husband and children and begin a life on her own. This climactic event—when Nora slams the door on everything in her life—instantly propelled world drama into the modern age. In A Doll’s House, Part 2, many years have passed since Nora’s exit. Now, there’s a knock on that same door. Nora has returned. 

January 24-February 3, 2019. HHPS Main Street Theatre, 3000 Main Street.

If You Forget Me

by Nora Anne Leahy

Directed by Blake White

Following an accident, Kate's fiancé is left with selective amnesia and does not remember her. Their engagement broken off, Kate returns to the comfort of her childhood home in the suburbs to pick up the pieces of her life. This dark comedy is an exploration of growing up, the nature of memory, and the process of letting go.

World Premiere production from Lean Lab.

March 20-24, 2019. HHPS Main Street Theatre, 3000 Main Street.

Barefoot in the Park

by Neil Simon

Directed by Blake White

Paul and Corie Bratter are newlyweds in every sense of the word. After a six-day honeymoon, they get a surprise visit from Corie's loopy mother and decide to play matchmaker during a dinner with their neighbor-in-the-attic Velasco, where everything that can go wrong, does. A classic comedy from one of the American Theatre's greatest wits, Neil Simon!
