2016-17 Season


September 29 – October 2 at 7:30 p.m., The Other Place

By Samuel Beckett

A pinnacle of Beckett’s characteristic raw minimalism, Endgame is a pure and devastating distillation of the human essence in the face of approaching death. Endgame is considered by many critics to be his greatest single work.

As You Like It

November 16, 17, 19, 20 at 7:30 p.m., The Other Place

By William Shakespeare

As You Like It follows its heroine Rosalind as she flees persecution in her uncle’s court, accompanied by her cousin Celia and Touchstone the court jester, to find safety and, eventually, love, in the Forest of Arden. The play remains a favorite among audiences and has been adapted for radio, film and musical theatre.

Night of the Iguana

February 9-12 at 7:30 p.m., The Other Place

It’s 1940. A bedraggled young Episcopal priest – in trouble with his bishop and at odds with the world – arrives at a run-down resort on the coast of Mexico with a group of women from a Christian college in Texas. The Texas women refuse to stay. Rev. Shannon refuses to leave, drawn to the drama of the tropics, to the resort’s sultry proprietress, and to a kindly woman artist who has retreated to the resort with her elderly grandfather. Lightning sparks in every direction in one of the most admired plays by one of America’s greatest playwrights.
