By A. R. Gurney
January 29, 30, 31, February 5, 6, 7, 12, 13, 14 ~ 2021
LOVE LETTERS was the first show performed in RCP’s newly purchased facility in 1998 and by popular demand we are bringing it to the stage once again as we excitedly begin our 26th season. LOVE LETTERS has been performed on Broadway numerous times and was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. The play centers on two characters, Melissa Gardner and Andrew Makepeace Ladd III. Using the epistolary form sometimes found in novels, they sit side by side at tables and read the notes, letters and cards – in which over nearly 50 years, they discuss their hopes and ambitions, dreams and disappointments, victories and defeats that have passed between them throughout their separated lives.
THE BOYS NEXT DOOR
By Tom Griffin
March 19, 20, 21, 26, 27, 28, April 2, 3, 4 ~ 2021
THE BOYS NEXT DOOR deals with four intellectually disabled men who live together in a small apartment – and Jack, the caring social worker who is on the verge of career burnout. The story takes place over roughly a two month period and consists of brief vignettes about the men’s lives. This story will pull at your heartstrings, charm you with antics, and not soon be forgotten.
PRIDE & PREJUDICE
By Jane Austen
May 7, 8, 9, 14, 15, 16, 21, 22, 23 ~ 2021
This isn’t your grandmother’s Austen! Bold, surprising, boisterous, and timely, this P&P for a new era explores the absurdities and thrills of finding your perfect (or imperfect) match in life. The outspoken Lizzy Bennet is determined to never marry, despite mounting pressure from society. But can she resist love, especially when that vaguely handsome, mildly amusing, and impossibly aggravating Mr. Darcy keeps popping up at every turn? Literature’s greatest tale of latent love has never felt so theatrical, or so full of life than it does in this effervescent adaptation. Because what turns us into greater fools…than the high-stakes game of love?
