Mistaken identity, misplaced ardor and a fight for true love ensues in Alexis Piron's classic 1738 French farce, The Metromaniacs. Would-be poet Damis has fallen for the works of the mysterious Breton poetess, not knowing she is really middle-aged gentleman Francalou. However, Francalou allows Damis to believe the poetess is his own daughter, Lucile, in order to separate her from Dorante, the son of his sworn enemy. Add to the chaos some scheming servants, pseudonyms, disguises and poetic wooing reminiscent of Cyrano and there is much to untangle before love-plots are resolved and a happy ending found.
In a comedy hailed by The New York Times as "intensely smart and immensely funny," Gina Gionfriddo (Becky Shaw) takes a sharp, unflinching look at 21st century gender politics. After grad school, Catherine built a career as a rock-star academic while Gwen built a home with a husband and children. Decades later, unfulfilled in opposite ways, each woman covets the other's life, and a dangerous game begins as each tries to claim the other's territory.
With searing insight and trademark wit, this 2013 Pulitzer Prize finalist, directed by Shirley Serotsky (Acting Artistic Director of Theater J), looks at family, career, romance, middle-aged meltdowns, and the decisions that define a life.
Cast includes Maggie Erwin, Tim Getman, Helen Hedman, Beth Hylton, and Michelle Six
