Last Of The Red Hot Lovers

Last of the Red Hot Lovers

By Neil Simon

Directed by Tom Levely
Produced by Michelle Spanik

This play by Neil Simon was written almost fifty years ago but still has plenty to say to audiences today. It will still hit your funny bone this time around.

The sexual revolution was in full swing back in 1960, when Barney Cashman felt he was missing out on something. Never unfaithful before, Barney decides to join the revolution. Over the course of the play, he separately invites three woman to, of all places, his mother’s apartment for afternoon trysts. Stealing time while his mother is out volunteering, he keeps one eye on the clock and the other on the exact positioning of the cushions, lest his mother suspect something.

Silly, yes – and so much fun we never stop laughing.

The Beauty Queen of Leenane

By Martin McDonagh

Directed by Maureen Dwyer
Produced by Michelle Spanik

Set in the village of Leenane in impoverished rural Ireland, this play title conjures up an image of Irish folklore, love and happy endings – nothing could be further from the truth.

If you want an evening of intense theatre, this is the play for you.

Fueled by a poisonous mother-daughter relationship, the play grabs you and sucks out all hope. This play is not for the faint of heart, but it is an expertly crafted play It makes for an exciting evening of theatre that may well shock you.

The play centers around Maureen, a long suffering, 40 year old caring for her aging mother, Mag, who is best described as toxic, possibly even psychotic. The story twists and turns to keep our interest.

Please note this play contains mature content & strong language
