Three people locked together in a mysterious room.  As they slowly realize the gravity of their new shared reality, excuses are made, confessions are revealed and tensions rise to a boiling point. There are no windows; the lights never dim; they cannot die.  There is truly no exit.  “Hell is other people.”

The Lafayette clan descends upon the decrepit homestead of their newly-departed patriarch.  As the adult children sort through a horde of mementos, clutter, debt, and long-collected family baggage, they make a startling discovery.  The contentious reunion explodes in bitter rivalry, shocking surprises and disturbing revelation.  “This guy was related to me?  Like, what the eff?”

Three Tall Women

 

by Edward Albee
Directed by Barbara Brennan

Friday, March 29, 2019
Clark County Library, 1401 E. Flamingo Rd., Las Vegas, NV 89119.

As a compelling, acerbic woman more than 90 years old lies dying, she reflects on her life with a mixture of shame, pleasure, regret, and satisfaction.  With the help of two attending women, she recalls the fun of her childhood, her early marriage, her deep regrets and overwhelming optimism.  “I think you can remember everything; I think you just can’t bring it to mind all the time.”

Consent

 

by Nina Raine
Directed by Andrew Calvert

Friday, June 28, 2019
Clark County Library, 1401 E. Flamingo Rd., Las Vegas, NV 89119.

Is Justice truly blind? Can she ever be really impartial? Or is she simply blinkered? Friends Ed and Matt take opposing briefs in a controversial rape case. The key witness is a woman whose life seems worlds away from their own. And when each and every version of the “truth” is challenged, everyone’s lives begin to unravel.  “The golden rule for any Greek play is, an unbonked woman goes bonkers.”
