Incident at Vichy
by Arthur Miller
Directed by Alan Kootsher
March 13 through March 22, 2020
From one of the most respected playwrights in American history comes a riveting drama that sets the tone for how the Holocaust was allowed to spread.
An intense, meaningful play that deals with the Nazis’ inhuman treatment of the Jews – and the burden of guilt which all men must share. In 1942, in a makeshift detention room of a Vichy train station, eight men have been picked up for questioning. As they wait to be called, they wonder why they were chosen. One by one they disappear for interrogation until only two remain. The startling turn of events at the end of this gripping play redeems, at least in part, the concern and honor of decent men everywhere.
Hailed as "one of the most important plays of our time,” by Howard Taubman in The New York Times, the play is as relevant today as it was 55 years ago.
The Memory of Water by Shelagh Stephenson, directed by Alan Kootsher.
The Memory of Water is the story of three sisters who have come together for their mother's funeral. Vi, the mother, passed away from Alzheimers at 75 and appears to Mary. The play is about relationships and how memories are shaped by our perceptions rather than actual events.
“The Memory of Water…is dotted with stimulating observations…it has a raw spontaneity that captures perfectly the idea of what normal people do in abnormal times…” —NY Times.
“The Memory of Water really lives up to the poetry reflected in its title. It also keeps us highly entertained for two hours and leaves us deeply touched in the end.” —NY Daily News.
