2024-2025 Season: Scandal!


Vinegar Tom by Caryl Churchill
Directed by Elizabeth Helman

November 14-16 and 21-22 at 7:30 pm and November 24 at 2:00 pm
Ed Ray Theater

Caryl Churchill’s experimental 1976 play depicts the stories of Alice and Joan, two outsiders in their community who become the targets of slander and persecution for their seemingly transgressive behavior. By combining a historical narrative of 17th century witch trials with contemporary rock songs and witty dialogue, Churchill creates a haunting and timely examination of gender and power dynamics.

As the British Industrial Revolution dawns, young Ada Byron Lovelace (daughter of the flamboyant and notorious Lord Byron) sees the boundless creative potential in the “analytic engines” of her friend and soul mate Charles Babbage, inventor of the first mechanical computer. Ada envisions a whole new world where art and information converge—a world she might not live to see. A music-laced story of love, friendship, and the edgiest dreams of the future. Jane Austen meets Steve Jobs in this poignant pre-tech romance heralding the computer age.


Hay Fever by Noel Coward

Hoping for a quiet weekend in the country with some guests, David Bliss, a novelist, and his wife, Judith, a retired actress, find quiet an impossible dream when their high-spirited children, Simon and Sorel, appear with guests of their own. A houseful of drama waits to be ignited as misunderstandings and tempers flare. With Judith’s new flame and David’s newest literary “inspiration” keeping company as the children follow suit, the Bliss family lives up to its name as the “quiet weekend” comes to an exhausting and hilarious finale in this classic and sexy farce.
