MY OLD LADY by Israel Horovitz

Event: 
Fri, 05/18/2012 - 7:00pm - 9:00pm

Ladies' Night Out: Fri. May 18th, 7PM

Our fourth collaboration with playwright Israel Horovitz is a charming comic drama that pits American cynicism against French "joie de vivre".

When a down-on-his-luck, middle-aged New Yorker inherits an extremely valuable French apartment, he rushes to Paris to solve his escalating financial woes by selling it ASAP. Upon his arrival in Paris, he is surprised to discover an elderly woman living in the apartment. And she has no intention of moving out.

A spiral of conflict, manipulation and growing friendship--complicated by the old woman's outraged daughter--alter everyone in this poignant play about how the secrets of the dead can transform meaning for the living.

Also May 10 - June 2 Thurs - Sat 8PM, Sun 2PM

Pay What You Can: Wed. May 16th, 8PM

Tickets: $12 - $32

Discounts for Seniors, Students, Military and Groups of 6 or more.

Enchanted April

When two frustrated London housewives decide to rent a villa in Italy for a holiday away from their bleak marriages,
they recruit two very different English women to share the cost and the experience. There, among the wisteria
blossoms and Mediterranean sunshine, all four bloom again—rediscovering themselves in ways that they—and we—
could never have expected.


Runs Thursday, Friday and Saturday from March 15th through April 7th
Curtain - 8:00 PM
