August Wilson’s The Piano Lesson

September 27 – October 5, 2019 at 8pm

It is 1936, and Boy Willie arrives in Pittsburgh from the South in a battered truck loaded with watermelons to sell.  He has an opportunity to buy some land down home, but he has to come up with the money right quick. He wants to sell an old piano that has been in his family for generations, but he shares ownership with his sister and it sits in her living room.  She has already rejected several offers because the antique piano is covered with incredible carvings detailing the family’s rise from slavery.  Boy Willie tries to persuade his stubborn sister that the past is past, but she is more formidable than he anticipated.

A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM

by William Shakespeare –

On a Midsummer’s night, four young lovers find themselves wrapped in the dream-like arms of an enchanted forest where sprites lurk and fairies rule. While a feuding Fairy King and Queen are at war, their paths are crossed by Bottom, Quince and their friends presenting a play within a play. Chief mischief-maker Puck is on-hand to ensure that the course of true love is anything but smooth, and games of fantasy, love and dreams ensue in Shakespeare’s most beguiling comedy.

 

THE SAFETY SHOW

A Devised Theatre Piece created by the students of Georgia Tech –

Today’s world is filled with danger. In the age of divisiveness, we are looking for moments of safety.  Using cards collected as part of the Georgia Tech Office of the Arts’ I Feel Safe When campaign, students will use personal story and collected narrative about safety to explore all the way in which we want and need to feel at home in our bodies.

CABARET

In a Berlin nightclub, as the 1920’s draw to a close, a garish Master of Ceremonies welcomes the audience and assures them they will forget all their troubles at the CABARET. With the Emcee’s bawdy songs as wry commentary, CABARET explores the dark, heady, and tumultuous life of Berlin’s natives and expatriates as Germany slowly yields to the emerging Third Reich. Cliff, a young American writer newly arrived in Berlin, is immediately taken by English singer Sally Bowles. Meanwhile, Fräulein Schneider, proprietor of Cliff and Sally’s boarding house, tentatively begins a romance with Herr Schultz, a mild-mannered fruit seller who happens to be Jewish.
