Cat on A Hot Tin Roof has been often cited as Tennessee Williams’ masterwork. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, it is a drama about the burning conflict and passion that grips a dysfunctional Southern family as it finally confronts and speaks the truth.

The Country Wife is William Wycherly’s 1675 Restoration sex comedy about a rake who convinces society he is impotent, and thus safe in the company of its wives. Given a reset in 1955 New York City, when America Liked Ike… there had to have been a first Mad Man.

Disgraced at the Greenbelt Arts Center, Mar 8-30

Disgraced at the Greenbelt Arts Center, Mar 8-30

Disgraced
by Ayad Akhtar
directed by Bob Kleinberg

March 8 – 30, 2019

Location: Greenbelt Arts Center

Disgraced, by Ayad Akhtar, is the taut drama of Amir Kapoor, an up and coming Muslim American lawyer who has rejected his religious background as overly rigid. Yet, at the insistence of his nephew and Islamic-inspired artist wife Emily, he chooses to attend the trial of an Imam who is charged with financially supporting the Hamas. At a dinner party that includes Amir’s coworker Jory, who is African American, and her husband, Isaac, Emily’s agent, who is Jewish, truths spill out that put Amir’s life in a new perspective. The show presents competing themes of assimilation versus exclusion, religious beliefs versus culture and tolerance versus prejudice.
