May 15 - June 6
A Raisin in the Sun
by Lorraine Hansberry
directed by Rikki Howie Lacewell
When her deceased husband's insurance money comes through, Mama Lena
dreams of moving to a new home and better neighborhood in Chicago. Walter Lee,
a chauffeur, has other plans, however: buying a liquor store and being his
own man. Beneatha dreams of medical school. The tensions and prejudice they
face form this seminal American drama. Sacrifice, trust, and love among the
Younger family and their heroic struggle to retain dignity in a harsh and
changing world is a searing and timeless document of hope and inspiration.
June 19 - 28
A guest production from Thunderous Productions
Clarissa, the second wife of Henry Hailsham Brown, is adept at spinning
tales of adventure for their bored diplomatic circle. When a murder takes
place in her drawing room she finds live drama much harder to cope with,
especially as she suspects the murderer might be her young stepdaughter
Pippa. Worse still, the victim is the man who broke up Henry's first marriage!
Clarissa's fast talking places her in some hair raising experiences, as she
comes to learn that the facts are much more terrifying than fiction.
July 10 - 19
The Springfield Boys
by Anthony E. Gallo
A guest production from Seventh Street Playhouse
This two-act dramedy traces the historically significant relationship
among Abraham Lincoln, his very closest friend Joshua Fry Speed, and his
law partner William H. (Billy) Herndon, from 1837 to 1891 (26 years after
the Lincoln assassination). Both Speed and Herndon played important roles in
the legacy of the 16th president. Oh yes, the Springfield Girls also have
their say. And the boys even help one another on their roads to marriage.
All shows start at 8pm unless otherwise stated. For reservations or more
