“A terrific comedy...Hypnotic
and utterly contemporary.”

—NY Times

“Pure theatricality. An engagingly unique perspective on affairs of the heart...
and that other part of the body.”

—NY1

“With the exception of Oscar Wilde, quarreling lovers are never as articulate and entertaining as they are in COCK, Mike Bartlett's Battle Royal of wit and persuasion.”
—Variety

COCK
(the cockfight play)
by Mike Bartlett
with Ian Carlsen*, James Herrera,
Andrew Sawyer and Marjolaine Whittlesey

directed by Keith Powell Beyland
& Tess Van Horn




When emotions are high - the claws come out. Mike Bartlett's (CONTRACTions) highly charged and deeply funny language play provides a unique look at sexual identity, infidelity, and the ways in which our emotions can overwhelm our actions. Cock is prescribed to be performed with no props, set or pantomime, so the focus is all on the drama.

John has been in a stable relationship with his boyfriend for a number of years. But when they separate for a time, he unexpectedly falls in love with a woman. Torn between the two, filled with guilt and conflicting emotions, he doesn't know which way to turn. His boyfriend is willing to wait for him to make a decision, but so is his girlfriend. And both are prepared to fight to keep him. As the pressure mounts, a dinner with both parties is arranged, and a surprise guest arrives to make a lively foursome. They all want to know: Who is John? What is he? And what will his decision be?

n.b. – due to the nature of the play, no one under 17 will be admitted.

Fabuloso
MARCH 8 - 17, 2019


“"This high-energy farce is good for more than laughs. It succeeds where so many fail because of an unusually effective emotional component that's just touching enough. It's perfect ballast for the madcap farcical elements, which are executed with precision and a pounding heart. FABULOSO is near-perfect summer entertainment. Playwright John Kolvenbach keeps you guessing while you're laughing. He's a playwright's playwright, sending his well-drawn characters down a carefully plotted structure that reveals its craft only in hindsight.”
- Eye Weekly (Canada)

FABULOSO
by John Kolvenbach
directed by Daniel Burson

with Peter Brown, Christopher Holt,
Janice O'Roure and Bess Welden





Kate and Teddy are trapped in a soggy, lifeless marriage. Then Teddy's old friend Arthur arrives, bearing chaos, knives, songs and his fiancée. FABULOSO is a domestic farce about the pleasure in bedlam and a working metaphor for bringing up babies.

“CRITIC’S PICK. Hilarious and touching...Annie Baker, one of the freshest and most talented dramatists to emerge Off Broadway in the past decade, writes with tenderness and keen insight. Her writing is a great blessing to performers: THE FLICK draws out nakedly truthful and unadorned acting. This lovingly observed play will sink deep into your consciousness.”
— The New York Times

“Funny, heartbreaking, sly, and unblinking. THE FLICK may be the best argument anyone has yet made for the continued necessity, and profound uniqueness, of theater.”
— New York Magazine



Maine Premiere
THE FLICK
by Annie Baker
directed by Keith Powell Beyland

with Matt Delamater and Casey Turner



In a run-down movie theater in central Massachusetts, three underpaid employees mop the floors and attend to one of the last 35 millimeter film projectors in the state. A hilarious and heart-rending cry for authenticity in a fast-changing world.
