The Lover

By Harold Pinter
August 17 at 7pm
$18

An interesting companion piece to juxtapose with the Theatre’s Main Stage production of The Guardsman, Pinter’s tightly-wound play takes “the game” between husband and wife a step further. Locked in a cycle of reciprocal provocation, the couple dances between cruelty and devotion. Adult Content.

 

The White Devil

By John Webster
September 21 at 7pm
$18

Loosely based on the 1585 murder of an Italian noblewoman and set in the court of Francisco de Medici, Webster’s tale of ruthless ambition and boundless corruption remains one of the greatest masterpieces of Jacobean revenge tragedy. A cautionary tale for leaders of any age, The White Devil exposes the true colors of those who claim to be pure. Adult Content.
