The lakeside rental Veronica has managed to afford is a far cry from the idyllic getaway she and her children so desperately need and the disheveled property owner Hogan has problems of his own. Problems that Veronica is inevitably and irrevocably pulled into. An engrossing and revealing portrait of two strangers bound together by circumstance, Lost Lake is a vivid play about the struggle for connection in an imperfect world. Taken from the website

Very Good Show!

Exploring culture’s obsession with true-crime, LaShea Delaney’s Moniece Clark considers what makes
one woman more valuable than another in this weird and funny play that follows Moniece Clark, a woman who has vanished from a California desert town. Her sister, Mimi, must trace her whereabouts with the help of a burnt-out television detective and the online sleuth community that has never given up on Moniece’s case. Moniece Clark brings themes of feminism, race, intersectionality, and media bias to the fore, while examining elements of true crime TV, camming (as in cam girls), Law and Order: SVU, suburban sprawl, and the desert at night. Taken from the press release.

An original Maverick Theater stage adaptation of the 1933 film by Merian C. Cooper. The play is based on the Delos W. Lovelace novel, which is the same storyline and dialogue from the original film with only minor changes and additions. The overall show will have a lighthearted tongue-in-cheek feel but all the characters will be played honest and as true to the original; even the man in the monkey suit. Taken from the website.

Brimming with slapstick comedy, Noises Off is a delightful backstage farce, complete with slamming doors, falling trousers, and — of course — flying sardines! Taken from the website.

In the final months before 9/11, liberal Jewish studies professor Michael Fischer has reunited with his two sisters to celebrate their father’s seventy-fifth birthday. Each deeply invested in their own version of family history, the siblings clash over everything from Michael’s controversial scholarly work to the mounting pressures of caring for an ailing parent. As destructive secrets and long-held resentments bubble to the surface, the three negotiate—with biting humor and razor-sharp insight—how much of the past they’re willing to sacrifice for a chance at a new beginning. IF I FORGET tells a powerful tale of a family and a culture at odds with itself. Taken from the website.
