JUNO AND THE PAYCOCK • Mar 3, 2011, 7:30 PM
"Th' whole worl's in a terrible state o' chassis" in Sean O'Casey's gorgeous tragedy, replete with all the color, character and humor of the Irish tenement in which it is set. The second of his Dublin trilogy will be the first play WSC will have done by the great poet of early 20th-century Ireland, who chronicles the preening Captain Boyle, his long suffering wife Juno (the breadwinner of the family), his irascible drinking companion, Joxer Daly, a daughter desperate to escape their world any way she can, and a son caught up in the internecine struggle that followed the Irish Civil War.
NIGHT AND DAY • May 21, 2011, 2:00 PM
After our namesake playwright, WSC has produced the plays of no writer more frequently than those of the inimitable Tom Stoppard. His rarely mounted, typically wide-ranging 1978 play looks at a British newspaper strike through the prism of journalists covering a civil war in Africa and introduces us to Ruth Carson, the expatriate wife of a British mine owner and your scintillatingly witty Stoppardian guide to the proceedings.
TENNESSEE CONTINUUM • May 28, 2011, 2:00 PM
A double-bill of infrequently performed one-acts by the glorious American poet laureate of the stage, whom Arthur Miller credited with revolutionizing the craft. Portrait of a Madonna is an early, poignant, and eerily beautiful sketch of the character who would become Blanche DuBois, while The Gnädiges Fräulein is considered one of the most successful of his mid-career experiments in style, a heartbreakingly yet hilarious ode to the indomitability of the human spirit and what many believe to be a thinly disguised allegory of his own creative life.
