Nominated for the 2011 Best Play Tony Award, this story is a darkly comic view of addiction, friendship, and love. Jackie, a petty drug dealer, is just out of prison and trying to stay clean. He’s also still in love with his coke addicted childhood sweetheart, Veronica. But when he discovers a hat that is not his in the bedroom, life gets a little bit harder.

Woman in Mind by Alan Ayckbourn Directed By: Scott Bellot
October 16, 2015 - November 15, 2015
Alan Ayckbourn has been called the "comic poet of middle class life.” Woman in Mind is about a housewife named Susan who is married to a boring cleric named George. After getting knocked out by stepping on a garden rake, Susan experiences hilarious hallucinations in which her oppressive and boring everyday life is replaced by a fantasy in which she is an ideal wife and mother with an ideal family. While her real family treats her with condescension and apathy, her fantasy family dresses in lovely white, always drinks champagne, lives in a stately home, and tells her that she’s wonderful.
