Escape from Happiness
By George F. Walker
Directed by Leigh Ann Evans
This wickedly dark comedy has never been produced on a Memphis stage. Within the play a dysfunctional family is reunited after a series of clattering bouts of criminal activity, police interrogations, and squabbling siblings.
By Archibald MacLeish
Directed by Julia “Cookie” Ewing
J.B. is a fresh and exalting morality play. One of the most memorable works of the century—as verse, as drama, and as a spiritual inquiry—J.B. depicts the suffering of the world and the injustices of our times through the biblical character of Job. In some small way, J.B. also reflects every person in society, whether they consciously realize it or not.
Little Shop of Horrors
Book and Lyrics by Howard Ashman
Music by Alan Menken
Directed by Gregory Krosnes
One of the longest-running Off-Broadway shows of all time, this affectionate spoof of 1950’s sci-fi movies has become a household name—charming, tuneful and hilarious, with tongue firmly planted in cheek. Seymour, a lowly florist’s assistant, wants to win the heart of Audrey, but her sadistic dentist boyfriend may stand in the way—unless Seymour’s giant, singing, flesh-eating plant can lend a helping…frond. Little Shop of Horrors never fails to entertain.
Much Ado About Nothing
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Harold Leaver
This is one of Shakespeare’s most enjoyable comedies. It is an enchanting story of hidden love, a match of wits, and false accusations—a light comedy full of dark twists and turns.
