Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind (30 plays in 60 min) February 2018

We started our season off with a hilarious show that keeps the audience on their toes! We wrapped up Too Much Light at the end of February to one of the largest audiences in Stage Left history.

The Big Bang April 12-13-14 • 19-20-21 • 26-27-28

 Coming to an apartment - I mean, stage - near you! Big Bang is about two clever and quirky writers "borrowing" a friend's New York loft apartment, to throw a party for potential "backers" of their new hit Broadway musical: The Big Bang. They attempt to convince the audience to give them the 83.5 million dollars they need by singing and dancing all the highlights of their "amazing" show; the decor of the apartment is collateral damage in the comic frenzy that ensues as they attempt to sing and dance all the highlights of their show starting with the down of creation all the way to present day.  

Arcadia by Tom Stoppard (July 2018)

 

Arcadia is set in Sidley Park, an English country house in Derbyshire, and takes place in both 1809/1812 and the present day (1993 in the original production). The activities of two modern scholars and the house's current residents are juxtaposed with those of the people who lived there in the earlier period.

In 1809, Thomasina Coverly, the daughter of the house, is a precocious teenager with ideas about mathematics, nature and physics well ahead of her time. She studies with her tutor Septimus Hodge, a friend of Lord Byron (an unseen guest in the house). In the present, writer Hannah Jarvis and literature professor Bernard Nightingale converge on the house: she is investigating a hermit who once lived on the grounds; he is researching a mysterious chapter in the life of Byron. As their studies unfold – with the help of Valentine Coverly, a post-graduate student in mathematical biology – the truth about what happened in Thomasina's time is gradually revealed. 

Music From Down the Hill (October 2018)

A drama set in a psychiatric clinic atop a hill in the beautiful country town of Woodstock, New York. Claire Granich, a young schizophrenic who loves Bruce Springsteen to death and cannot for the life of her tell the truth, regularly drives out new roommates with terror tactics and Spingsteen songs played too loud. Enter Margot Yossarian, a young hysteric with a huge heart and a love for rock-n-roll music; especially the music form the 60's. The two women wined up bonding over their shared passion and attempt to help each other with their problems. Can the concept of rock penetrate a disturbed heart (and mind) and create a miracle of mental health and healing?

Holmes for the Holidays (December 2018)

It's December 1936 and Broadway star William Gillette, admired the world over for his leading role in the play Sherlock Holmes, has invited his fellow cast-members to his Connecticut castle for a weekend of revelry. But when one of the guest is stabbed to death, the festivities in this isolated house of tricks and mirrors quickly turns dangerous. Then it's up to Gillette himself,as he assumes the persona of his beloved Holmes, to track down the killer before the next victim appears. The danger and hilarity are non-stop in this glittering whodunit set set during the Christmas holidays.
