Mr. and Mrs. Ernest W. Stanley are thrilled when Sheridan Whiteside, a brilliant, witty, and widely beloved radio celebrity, accepts their invitation to dinner on his tour through their little town of Mesalia, Ohio. However, when Whiteside injures himself by slipping on a piece of ice on their doorstep, and is confined to their home for the better part of December, the Stanleys are not so pleased with the change in their household. Brilliant, witty, and highly beloved he may be, but Whiteside has the behavior of a mischievous, sarcastic, entitled princeling, and he does not suffer fools. Demanding control of the entire household -- on top of the $150,000 for which he is suing Mr. Stanley -- in recompense for his injury, Whiteside commandeers the telephone, fills the library with penguins and cockroaches, and invites a band of paroled convicts over for lunch. And that's just the beginning!

Jay ‘The Sport’ Jackson dreams of being the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world. But it’s 1905 and, in the racially segregated world of boxing, his chances are as good as knocked out.

REVIEWS
LAVENDER Magazine-John Townsend-2/28/18
"A work of Theatrical Genius...Candid Theatre’s beguiling and deeply moving regional premiere of the Olivier nominee at Fallout Arts Initiative rises to the occasion with memorable performances that border on sublimity and linger in the mind long after the curtain call...The vivid supporting cast is superb as they appear as phantoms from Alice and Peter’s past...Logan’s heavyweight themes are brilliantly rendered with expert variation, pace, and timing by all, so that the show moves briskly along."

"Reality, memories, and imagination all mix together to tell a moving story of the joy and pain of growing up in Candid Theatre Company's wonderful and intimate production of PETER AND ALICE...It's a captivating, thought-provoking, sobering 90 minutes...Peter and Alice is a fascinating exploration of two characters we think we know, and the contrast between the stories of our childhood and the harsh reality of adulthood. I was completely charmed, and saddened, by this production."

Six Elements Theatre presents a new, collaboratively devised work based on ancient Irish legends. Directed by Nathaniel Nesheim-Case, script by Brian Watson-Jones

 

The greatest warrior in Ireland's history is fighting against an invading army, alone, while the Morrigan, goddess of battle and death, looks over his shoulder, waiting for him to fall...

Adapted by the ensemble from the Old Irish epics of the Ulster Cycle, The Hound of Chulainn tells the tale of two youths touched by fate: Deirdre, cursed to bring sorrow to those she loves, and Setanta, the boy with dog-like loyalty who must choose between his duty and his family. Haunting music and deadly duels punctuate a story about the difficulty and the importance of choosing who you believe and who you fight for.

Juliet & Juliet perform never-before-seen plays in the style of William Shakespeare himself. Come enjoy Juliet & Juliet's classic improvised Shakespeare, guided by literary "luminaries" played by some of our favorite improvisers! While much shorter than Shakespeare's original works, everything from comedies to tragedies to the occasional history play is within their scope. Kings will be fools, fools will fall in love, lovers will die - or something like that.
