Rehearsal for this show might begin as early as Sunday, July 31st and our normal rehearsal schedule will be Sundays through Fridays from 7 to 9:30pm. All rehearsal schedules are made by the Director. These decisions are based on several factors such as cast and staff availability, space availability, progress made on scenes and blocking, etc. 

“Tech” rehearsals are the week leading up to opening night, beginning Sunday, October 15th and it involves actors and backstage crew, so it is vital that everyone participates. Attendance at ALL technical (tech) week rehearsals as well as ALL performances is mandatory. Be certain there are no conflicts with performances or tech week. Tech Week is the week in which the actors begin to work with the crew on all the technical aspects of the show: sound cues, lights, costumes, and sets.

When preparing your conflict list, include conflicts with sports, school activities, vacations, doctor appointments, birthday parties and other activities. Prioritizing activities prior to auditions can make the process less stressful for both actors and creative staff. Also, pay close attention to the “mandatory” rehearsal dates such as tech week rehearsals, dress rehearsal, and show days.


George, a professor at a small college, and his wife, Martha, have just returned home, drunk from a Saturday night party. Martha announces, amidst general profanity, that she has invited a young couple—an opportunistic new professor at the college and his shatteringly naïve new bride—to stop by for a nightcap. When they arrive the charade begins. The drinks flow and suddenly inhibitions melt. It becomes clear that Martha is determined to seduce the young professor, and George couldn’t care less. But underneath the edgy banter, which is crossfired between both couples, lurks an undercurrent of tragedy and despair. George and Martha’s inhuman bitterness toward one another is provoked by the enormous personal sadness that they have pledged to keep to themselves: a secret that has seemingly been the foundation for their relationship. In the end, the mystery in which the distressed George and Martha have taken refuge is exposed, once and for all revealing the degrading mess they have made of their lives.


*This show is suited for adults due to coarse language and mature themes.*
