Barbara Oliver
Aurora Theatre Company has announced that founding artistic director Barbara Oliver will return for the company's 21st season to direct Wilder Times, a collection of one-act plays by Thornton Wilder, November 2-December 9.

Wilder Times is comprised of the plays Infancy (1962), a comedy about fulfilling basic human needs; Childhood (1962), in which Wilder renders a child's-eye view of the grown-up world; The Happy Journey to Trenton and Camden (1931), which features the first appearance of Wilder's narrating Stage Manager character; and The Long Christmas Dinner (1931), which breaks the boundaries of time as we measure it, following 90 years of an extended family's holiday dinners.

The cast will include Heather Gordon, Gwen Kingston, Søren Oliver, Marcia Pizzo, Stacy Ross, Patrick Russell, and Brian Trybom.
