Our 2008 Season

We're quite excited about this year we have a show in April...wait...May? and our September show BUNBURY: A Serious Play for Trivial People by Tom Jacobsen which will be directed by our own Artistic Director John Edward O'Brien.

What's "Bunbury" about? After discovering that he is only a fictitious character in THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST, Bunbury joins forces with Rosaline, Romeo’s never-seen obsession from ROMEO AND JULIET. Together, they use their anonymity to infiltrate and alter classic literature, starting by accidentally giving ROMEO AND JULIET a happy ending. The resulting transformation of such classics as THE THREE SISTERS, A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE, WAITING FOR GODOT, and even Edgar Allan Poe’s THE RAVEN spawns a new sub-discipline in literary criticism and may even change the world. A comedy that proves everyone's life means something--even if they don't exist!

Both shows will be at the Piano Factory in Boston's Historic South End.
