Our 2014–2015 Season

Reconsidering Hanna(h)

By Deirdre Girard. Directed by Bridget Kathleen O’Leary.

September 25-October 19

Hanna, a brutally blunt international journalist, is struggling to come to terms with her husband’s violent death. After accepting a seemingly tame assignment, she becomes increasingly obsessed with uncovering the history of another Hannah: the infamous Hannah Dustin who was kidnapped by a Native American raiding party in 1697. Soon the stories of the two Hanna(h)s begin to merge into a single portrait of a smart woman, torn from the only world she knows, who crosses the line between civilization and her own wilderness.

Chosen Child

By Monica Bauer. Directed by Megan Schy Gleeson.

October 30-November 22

Three generations of mothers and memories combine to change the fate of a schizophrenic man at the Port Authority Bus Terminal, as he waits for a sister he hardly knows, to fulfill an agreement that was never made. Adoption, desertion, and forgiveness—all this makes up a family. What are the ties that bind?

Uncle Jack

Written and directed by Michael Hammond.

February 12-March 1

In this modern-day retelling of Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya, Uncle Jack, his niece Sonya, and his British brother-in-law Derek struggle to save their small summer theatre company in the Berkshires…and the company’s looming demise causes old wounds to bleed afresh. Jack fires a keepsake pistol, Derek runs for cover, and hearts are broken. A comedy of Chekhovian proportions!
