For the 2017 season The Ensemble Theatre Company (etc.) will be producing the following shows:
A Prayer for Owen Meany
Opening July 14, 2017
Set against the backdrop of societal upheaval in America during the 1960s, this heartwarming and often amusing story recounts the unbreakable bond between Owen and John, who remain forever linked by a tragic childhood accident. The aftermath propels John into a lifelong journey of questions regarding his own spiritual beliefs. At the same time, Owen surfaces with the unwavering conviction that he is an instrument of God. After capturing the imagination of generations of readers, Owen Meany has become an extraordinary and unforgettable theatrical event.
In the Next Room
Opening July 13, 2017
Set in the late 1800's, at the dawn of electricity, In The Next Room (or the vibrator play) is a provocative, funny, touching and marvelously entertaining story about a young doctor and his wife.
Dr Givings utilises the wondrous powers of the electrical age to provide a unique 'cure' for relieving the symptoms of female hysteria, providing them with a certain 'something' missing from their daily lives. His procedures are, of course, administered on a purely scientific basis.
Inspired by 'The Technology of Orgasm' by Rachel P. Maines, the play was nominated for three Tony Awards on its first run in 2009.
Opening July 15, 2017
An anteroom in the Kremlin.
The Soviet Musician's Union Conference in Moscow.
Stalin is formulating his policy for the Arts in The Soviet Union and summons Shostakovich, and Prokofiev, the leading Russian composers of the day, in order that he can discuss, with the aid of his Cultural Minister, Zhdanov, their place as artists in Soviet society.
Needless to say, the discussion is conducted on Stalin's terms - but with a course that is far from predictable.
Passes on sale now until March 31. See All Three Shows for $60.00
