In A Grove premiers in ONE WEEK

The WORLD PREMIER (makes it sound important, eh? :)) of the Ryūnosuke Akutagawa short stories, In a Grove and Rashōmon, adapted by award-winning playwright Katherine Pelch opens on our stage in one week. Wednesday, March 18 at 7pm marks the first performance of this piece. The show will run for two additional evenings. In a Grove tells the complex tale of a crime that has left one man dead an his wife missing. Several points of view are offered which serves to tell us that the story may not be what it seems. The original short stories provide a setting and framing elements for the script. The characters are derived from characters in the two stories, but reimagined from the original Japanese locales into post WWII era New York state.

Seating is very limited in the Little Theater, so advanced purchase tickets are strongly recommended. Doors open at 6:30 and walk-up "Pay What You Want" seating begins at 6:45, based on availability.
