The Roommate

by Jen Silverman

A Black Curtain Reader’s Theatre

SEPTEMBER 21 & 22, 2019 @ 7:30 PM

The Rommate

The Odd Couple Meets Breaking Bad

Recently divorced and living in an old house in Iowa, Sharon needs to find a sensible roommate like herself – a woman in her fifties – to make ends meet. Robyn, a middle–aged woman from the Bronx who’s looking for a chance to start over, seems to fit the bill. But as Sharon begins to uncover Robyn’s secrets, her own deep–seated desire to completely transform her own life becomes unleashed. Called “an out and out laugh riot”, The Roommate is a dark comedy about a chance cohabitation that sets two lives spinning – and what happens when the wheels come off.

However, when Nick tells his famiglia that he is moving to Seattle for his dream job, the wily elders decide to launch a barrage of emotional blackmail to keep Nick around, including a cooked–up matchmaking scheme with the lovely Caitlin. Will the prospect of true love keep Nick from moving across the country?

A Doll’s House, Part 2

What Happens When You Have To Cross The Bridge That You’ve Burned?

Remember when Nora walked out and slammed the door behind her in Ibsen’s 1879 revolutionary masterpiece, A Doll’s House? Well, she’s back in Lucas Hnath’s bitingly funny, Tony–nominated sequel, A Doll’s House, Part 2. It’s 15 years later and Nora has come home to request an incredibly awkward favor from Torvald, the husband whom she abandoned. As long–simmering resentments boil over, she must navigate some hilarious and harrowing negotiations with her husband, their daughter Emmy, and their nanny Anne Marie, as we watch the woman who once up–ended the rules of marriage return to set the record straight. A must–see for theater–lovers and anyone who has ever tried to be married.

Into The Woods

An epic fairytale about wishes, family and the choices we make.

An ambivalent Cinderella? A rebellious Rapunzel? A Prince Charming with a roving eye? A Witch...who raps? They are all among the cockeyed characters in James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim’s Tony–Award winning, fractured fairy tale, Into The Woods. When a Baker and his Wife learn they’ve been cursed with childlessness by the Witch next door, they embark on a quest to break the spell, swindling and lying to Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, and Jack (of beanstalk fame). But when everyone’s wishes are granted, the consequences of their self–centered actions come to haunt them. What begins as a lively irreverent fantasy becomes a moving life lesson about working together, the stories we tell our children, and the real meaning of “happily ever after”.

Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike

Three Siblings. One Hot Mess.

In pastoral Bucks County, PA, Vanya and his sister Sonia reside in their old family home, mourning their lost dreams and missed opportunities. However, when their fortune–telling maid, Cassandra, warns of impending dangers, and their movie star sister, Masha, arrives unexpectedly with her hunky boy toy, Spike, a lifetime of sibling rivalry explodes into a rollicking weekend of one–upmanship, exposed nerves, and a lot of broken mugs. Winner of the 2013 Tony Award for Best Play, acclaimed playwright Christopher Durang has penned a laugh–out–loud play on the modern theme of sibling rivalies and sprinkled it as a loving homage to Chekhov’s themes of heartbreak and hope.

An Austen–tatious Delight!

A smash hit when it premiered in 2014, this exuberant adaptation of Sense and Sensibility  brings a comic, theatrical flair to Jane Austen's perennial favorite. The Dashwood sisters – prudent Elinore and impulsive Marianne – find their world turned upside down after their father’s death, which robs them of their wealth, social standing, and most importantly, chances for marriage. Mix in a few dashing love interests and a gaggle of gossipy socialites, the sisters must learn to mix sense with sensibility, their opposite temperaments, to find true happiness. Called “inventive, faithful, clever and hilarious”, this marvelous play will delight Austen fans and novices alike.

The Seminar

Young writers are like good books...
You can’ t enjoy them until you’ ve broken their spines.

Four young writers have signed up for a writing seminar with Leonard, a known literary hotshot. His students include the well–to–do Kate, who hosts the sessions in her spacious Upper West Side apartment, sweater–vested Douglas, who has family connections in publishing but lacks real promise, the provocative Izzy, whose wish to be published is only seconded by her desire to appear nude on a New York Magazine cover, and Martin, the last hold–out when it comes to handing over his work to be judged. Under Leonard’s recklessly brilliant and unorthodox instruction, some of these writers thrive in the seminar, while others flounder. As alliances are made and broken and insecurities rage, the wordplay is not the only thing that turns vicious as innocence collides with experience in this biting Broadway comedy.
