Censored on Final Approach

by Phylis Ravel

“... rife with suspense...” – The New York Times


During World War II, the few female pilots -- WASPs, or Women Airforce Service Pilots -- were barely tolerated by the military brass, which made the deaths of two WASPs on training missions both shocking and suspicious. Were they accidental, or caused by foul play? The service of these civilian women remained a forgotten chapter of history until it was acknowledged by President Carter, 30 years after their last military flights.

The Cripple of Inishmaan

by Martin McDonagh

“… outrageously funny...” – The New York Times

When a Hollywood director visits a remote Irish island to make a film, crippled, orphaned Billy dreams of making it big on the silver screen. His departure gives fuel to the town gossipmonger, who proves – in many ways, in this darkly comic tale – that gossip is never the best source of the truth, especially where the demise of Billy’s parents is concerned.

November 21 – 23 and December 4 – 6
Thursday, Friday, Saturday evenings at 7:30 pm
Sunday matinee at 2 pm

Festival of Ten IX

“…sophisticated, diverse and fulfilling theater.” – Democrat and Chronicle

Festival of Ten

For this ninth biennial program of ten 10-minute plays, a record number of nearly 600 plays were submitted, including entries from as far away as New Zealand. It’s not only playwrights who are drawn to the format; audiences are, too, as they can see fully realized productions that typically run the gamut from tense drama to laugh-out-loud funny.

February 27 – March 1 and March 5 - 7
Thursday, Friday, Saturday Evenings at 7:30 pm
Saturday Matinees at 2 pm

For information regarding the Playwrights Symposium, please contact the Department of Theatre and Music Studies at (585) 395-2496. Separate registration is required for the Playwrights Symposium.

Loose Ends

by Michael Weller

"absorbing and funny..." - The New York Times


Loose Ends

It is 1970, the dawn of the “me” decade, when Paul and Susan fall in love. As the decade ensues, we see their relationship blossom – and wither – as the choices they make, influenced by the freewheeling 1960s, eventually give way to some harsh realities as the 80s loom.

April 24 – 26 and April 30 – May 2
Thursday, Friday, Saturday Evenings at 7:30 pm
Sunday Matinee at 2 pm
