February 6-8 at Macklanburg Playhouse
In a world fraught with moral compromise, how does one maintain personal integrity—and at what cost? That’s the dilemma faced by faithful sister Antigone as she mourns her two dead brothers in this thoughtful adaption of Sophocles’ classic Greek tragedy.
Circle Mirror Transformation
February 13-15 and 20-22 at Talking Horse Theatre
When four lost New Englanders who enroll in Marty’s six-week long community center drama class begin to experiment with harmless theater games, hearts are quietly torn apart, and tiny wars of epic proportions are waged and won. A beautifully crafted diorama, a petri dish in which we see, with hilarious detail and clarity, the antic sadness of a motley quintet.
The Whipping Man
February 19-21 and 26-March 1 at Rhynsburger Theatre
As the Civil War ends, a wounded Confederate soldier returns to find his plantation home in ruins, occupied by two of his family’s former slaves. Bound by history and the Jewish faith they share, the three men are forced to confront the changing social order as deeply buried secrets are revealed that could cost each of them their freedom. (Strong language and explicit physical trauma)
What Every Girl Should Know
February 19-22 at Warehouse Theatre
Four young Catholic suffragettes in early 20th century New York City adopt birth control pioneer Margaret Sanger as their patron saint. “Top to bottom, start to finish, What Every Girl Should Know is an excellent piece of theatre … as long as the war over women’s reproductive rights rages on, [this is] a story people need to keep telling.” —NYTheatre.com (Drama, PG-13 for Sexual References)
