About This Show

On the Bum, written by OBIE award-winning playwright Neal Bell, is a witty and multilayered examination of the transparency of art-and of truth-at a pivotal time in the growth of modern America. Set during the Great Depression, the play centers on a hard-luck New York actress named Eleanor, who hops a train to the heartland to act in a government-sponsored local production. While rehearsing the play-a historic piece about the town of Bumfork-Eleanor accidentally stumbles across a mystery lurking in the wings. As she struggles to uncover the truth, she finds herself in the midst of political scandal, artistic censorship, and an unexpected romance. Sheryl Kaller directs.

Additional performances: Sunday, March 5 @ 2 p.m. and Sunday, March 12 @ 5 p.m.
