  • WITCHING HOUR SOCIAL CLUB by James Lucey | A free staged reading

    RESERVE YOUR SEATS WITCHING HOUR SOCIAL CLUB by James Lucey (June 16) ​ Two estranged friends meet in the woods on an autumn night for the first gathering of their high school storytelling club in fifteen years. When it seems they’re the only club members in attendance, their hopes for a big reunion dwindle. As they wait for their friends to arrive, they listen to cassette tapes of old stories from the club to pass the time. But there’s more on the tapes than just old stories. This play is largely inspired by classic horror anthologies like Creepshow, Tales from the Crypt, and of course, Are You Afraid of the Dark? It’s been developed as a sort of experiment to test the potential and possibilities of the horror genre in live theatre.

  • Sense & Sensibility | Burbage Theatre Co

    Get tickets Press Release RI Premiere SENSE & SENSIBILITY by Kate Hamill based on the novel by Jane Austen November 17 - December 11 “Perhaps the greatest stage adaptation of this novel in history.” —Huffington Post A playful new adaptation of Jane Austen’s beloved novel follows the fortunes (and misfortunes) of the Dashwood sisters—sensible Elinor and hypersensitive Marianne—after their father’s sudden death leaves them financially destitute and socially vulnerable. Set in gossipy late 18th-century England, with a fresh female voice, the play is full of humor, emotional depth, and bold theatricality. Sense & Sensibility examines our reactions, both reasonable and ridiculous, to societal pressures. When reputation is everything, how do you follow your heart?

His radical ideas around affairs of state, lack of military acumen, and loyalty to his ambitious lover Piers Gaveston pit him against powerful nobles and his calculating queen. These conflicts lead to Gaveston’s exile and murder, new and shifting romantic loyalties on all sides, and revenge and retribution that ultimately seal Edward’s fate. ​ ​ “A supremely modern work… tells the story of sexual obsession, religious power, and the intersection of the political and personal lives of a flawed leader… a play fired with the excitement of today.” ―​New York Times ​ CALENDAR OF PERFORMANCES ​ Thursday, January 23 at 8pm Friday, January 24 at 8pm Saturday, January 25 at 8pm PAY-WHAT-YOU-CAN/PRESS Preview Sunday, January 26 at 2pm PRESS Preview ​ Friday, January 31 at 8pm OPENING PERFORMANCE Saturday, February 1 at 8pm Sunday, February 2 at 2pm ​ Friday, February 7 at 8pm Saturday, February 8 at 8pm Sunday, February 9 at 2pm Sunday, Febrary 9 at 7pm Friday, February 14 at 8pm Saturday, February15 at 8pm Sunday, February 16 at 2pm Sunday, February 16 at 7pm ​ TICKETS PREVIEW - $15 STUDENT - $15 GENERAL - $25 HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT - FREE Contact: For Event Updates: ​ Members of the PRESS are invited to our PAY-WHAT-YOU-CAN Performance as well as our Sunday Preview Matinee.

  • Five Women Wearing the Same Dress | Burbage Theatre Company

    March 10 - April 3 Get tickets RI Premiere FIVE WOMEN WEARING THE SAME DRESS by Alan Ball Directed by Allison Crews (March 10 - April 3) During an ostentatious wedding reception at a Knoxville, Tennessee, estate, five reluctant, identically clad bridesmaids hide out in an upstairs bedroom, each with her own reason to avoid the proceedings below. They are Frances, a painfully sweet but sheltered fundamentalist; Mindy, the cheerful, wise-cracking lesbian sister of the groom; Georgeanne, whose heartbreak over her own failed marriage triggers outrageous behavior; Meredith, the bride’s younger sister, whose precocious rebelliousness masks a dark secret; and Trisha, a jaded beauty whose die-hard cynicism about men is called into question when she meets Tripp, a charming bad-boy usher to whom there is more than meets the eye. As the afternoon wears on, these five very different women joyously discover a common bond in this wickedly funny, irreverent, and touching celebration of the women’s spirit. “An irreverent and funny look at the intricacies of friendship and the power of similar dressing …[a] wonderfully entertaining play…” — NY Post “Five Women Wearing the Same Dress is a fresh-as-a-daisy comedy, funny as can be…” — NY Daily News “Ball has the comic writer’s requisite talent for dialogue that ricochets snappily around the stage.” — TheaterWeek. “Fast and witty… smart and enjoyable… thoroughly engaging… ...Five Women illustrates the evolving ideologies of a female culture still finding comfort in empowerment." — Broadway World ABOUT THE PRODUCTION FIVE WOMEN WEARING THE SAME DRESS by Alan Ball Directed by Allison Crews ENSEMBLE Amie Lytle, Mindy Gabrielle McCauley, Trish Andrew Medeiros, Tripp Daria Montaquila, Georgeanne Mary Mullane, Frances Steph Rodger, Meredith ​PRODUCTION CREW Assistant Director, Kelli Noonan Stage Manager, Devra Levy Production Manager, Brittany Costello Set Design/Technical Director, Andrew Iacovelli Costumes Design/Coordination, Maxine Wheelock PERFORMANCE DATES Thursday, March 10 at 8pm Preview Friday, March 11 at 8pm Preview Saturday, March 12 at 8pm PAY-WHAT-YOU-CAN Press Preview Sunday, March 13 at 2pm PRESS Preview Friday, March 18 at 8pm OPENING NIGHT Saturday, March 19 at 8pm Sunday, March 20 at 2pm Friday, March 25 at 8pm Saturday, March 26 at 8pm Sunday, March 27 at 2pm Friday, April 1 at 8pm Saturday, April 2 at 8pm Sunday, April 3 at 2pm ​ ​

ABOUT THE HYPOCHONDRIAC “‘The Hypochondriac’ is a theatrical treat as pleasurable as a full body massage.” - Curtain Up “Riotously entertaining… a fresh-as-paint reimagining of a usually dusty comedy that suggests that Moliere's diagnosis of hypochondria and quack remedies remains bang on the money.” - Telegraph UK Moliere's classic farce pokes fun at Argan, a man so obsessed by his own imaginary ailments that he can no longer control his haphazard household or the mercenary medics he employs. With doctors determined to grow fat from the profits of his condition, Argan's closest relatives battle to show him the truth of his situation. Using elaborate trickery, they strive to cure the real disease from which he suffers, managing to pile confusion upon hilarious confusion. ​ “Fundamental French farce…The show's virtue is its fidelity to Molière in combining broad-bottomed farce with an assault on the morbid egotism of those for whom illness becomes a way of life.” – The Guardian “A richly satirical comedy.” - The New York Times “Arrogant doctors, mysterious maladies, incomprehensible jargon, “The Imaginary Invalid” might be the latest medical drama, rather than a 17th century comedy by the French playwright Molière. No doubt, that is why the play holds up so well. Despite all the discussions of bile and other humors, the fundamental relationships haven’t changed that much.” - Culture Vulture ABOUT THE PRODUCTION THE HYPOCHONDRIAC by Jean-Baptiste Moliere directed by Wendy Overly adapted for the Burbage Theatre Co by Wendy Overly and Jeff Church CAST Argan, a hypochondriac F.

ABOUT JULIUS CAESAR The Burbage Theatre Co. presents a play about men who make mistakes; great men whose choice to act was met with grave consequences. In 44 BC on March 15th, certain members of the Roman Senate, as a means of preventing the ascension of a dictator, murdered Julius Caesar, one of the great rulers of the ancient world. Lead by the infamous Marcus Brutus in the name of honor and the general good, the faction of senators stabbed Caesar thirty three times on the floor of the Senate. What resulted was civil discord and the dividing of a great empire. Shakespeare’s masterpiece is a discourse on how politics can be personal, and how political ideals, while honorable in theory, are rarely met as such. ​ “Julius Caesar" is among Shakespeare's most violent, and most political, plays. Its great themes—the wages of faction and conspiracy, the chaos that follows the downfall of a dictator—are as central to public life now as they were to Elizabethan England.” —The Wall Street Journal ​ ABOUT THE PRODUCTION JULIUS CAESAR by William Shakespeare directed by Jeff Church CAST ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ PRODUCTION CREW ​ Stage Management, Jessica Winward Assistant Direction, Jake Clarke Set Design, Andrew Iacovelli Costume Consultant, Jillian Eddy Intern, Isaiah Gamboa ​ ​ ​ ​ * denotes a member of Actors’ Equity Association, the Union of Professional Actors and Stage Managers in the United States. ​ ​ ​ PLEASE NOTE THAT THE LOCATION OF PERFORMANCES VARIES ​ Jeff Church*, Mark Antony Jake Clarke, Artemidorius Liz Hallenbeck, Soothsayer Daniel F.

But with the help of some ghostly visits, she just might learn the true meaning of Chanukkah, or however you spell it. ​ Hannukah Shmanukkah is a wild and zany, mildly offensive and completely inappropriate ride that asks that timeless question, can you do a play in Rhode Island about Jews written and directed by a Jew actually starring Jews without mentioning the Holocaust?
