In 1691 Puritan New England, fear and superstition were rampant. Singing, dancing and amusement of any kind was forbidden. The devil was everywhere. Five girls coming of age in
Salem Village, desperate for release of their thoughts and feelings, find an ally in Tituba, a slave who longs for freedom. Deep in the woods the girls make a pact and build a sisterhood. Then alliances are formed, promises made and broken, power taken.

Afflicted:
Daughters of Salem tells the story of the Salem girls—Abigail Williams, the leader, Ann Putnam, Mercy Lewis, Mary Warren and Betty Parris, and the events that led up to the infamous Salem witch trials. This origin story examines how these teenage girls became accusers and caused 20 people to be put to death for witching.

Laughing Stock at Laurel Mill Playhouse, Jun 29-Jul 15

Laughing Stock at Laurel Mill Playhouse, Jun 29-Jul 15

Laughing Stock
by Charles Morey
Directed by Daniel Johnston
Assistant Directed by Michael Hartsfield
Produced by Maureen Rogers

Friday June 29, 2018 through Sunday July 15, 2018

Location: Laurel Mill Playhouse

LAUGHING STOCK is a hilarious backstage farce and genuinely affectionate look into the world of the theatre. When The Playhouse, a rustic New England summer theatre, schedules a repertory season of Dracula, Hamlet and Charley’s Aunt, comic mayhem ensues. We follow the well-intentioned but over-matched company from outrageous auditions to ego-driven rehearsals through opening nights gone disastrously awry to the elation of a great play well told and the comic and nostalgic season close.

“—a summer stock production of Dracula disintegrates into chaos on opening night. Gothic horror becomes high comedy amid misplaced technical cues, forgotten lines, wrong entrances and eccentric acting—the large audience howled with glee as they watched the mayhem unfold…” —Salt Lake Tribune. “LAUGHING STOCK soars as farce…” —Salt Lake City Weekly. “The delightful thing…is that Morey strikes a balance between a depiction of everything that can and usually does go wrong…and a genuinely affectionate look at the magic that holds theatre companies together…these are all type characters but Morey adeptly deepens and individualizes each one…The Dracula section and a rehearsal of Charley’s Aunt where the actors improvise being animals at dusk around an African water hole are comic high point…” —Event (Salt Lake City). “LAUGHING STOCK will indeed have you laughing in your seat if not rolling in the aisles…It’s hard to imagine anyone whose funny bone wouldn’t be tickled by this one…it’s a hoot…it’s a blast…” —Monadnock Ledger (NH). “Scene after scene, beat after beat, LAUGHING STOCK piles on the laughs…every single piece crackles with successful wit and abundant humor…virtuoso farce…” —Keene Sentinel (NH). “I cried, I choked, I fell into a coughing fit, I cried some more…can’t help but love this play.” —Nashua Telegraph (NH).

Produced by special arrangement with Dramatists Publishing Company. Performances run weekends from Friday June 29, 2018 through Sunday July 15, 2018 with Friday and Saturday evening performances at 8 p.m. Tickets are $20 for general admission. Admission for students (12 and under), active duty military and seniors (65 and over) is $17. Tickets can be purchased by clicking the link below.
