The Weir at Hard Bargain, Oct 6-21

The Weir at Hard Bargain, Oct 6-21

THE WEIR
By Conor McPherson
Directed by Brooke L. Howells
October 6-21, 2017
Fridays & Saturdays at 8:00pm

Location: Hard Bargain Players

In a small bar called The Weir in a rural town in Ireland, three local men are settling down for the night, enjoying good beer and company. Their normal routine is shaken up when their friend Finland enters the bar and introduces them to Valerie, an attractive woman from Dublin who has just moved into an old haunted house in the town. As the night (and the amount of liquor) progresses, each local from the bar starts to tell a tale of ghostly happenings in the town. What starts as innocent braggadocio between the men turns into a real fright when Valerie reveals a real, haunted tale of her own from the past. Examining chances of missed opportunity and the loneliness that results in it, The Weir is a haunting play with its roots in Irish folklore.

Tickets for Hard Bargain Players performances are $12 for adults, $10 for students, seniors and members of the Alice Ferguson Foundation.

Bambi: A Life in the Woods at Hard Bargain, Sep 8-17

Based on the story by Felix Salten
Adapted by James DeVita
Directed by Melissa Ball
September 8-17, 2017
Fridays at 8:00pm; Saturdays and Sundays at 3:00pm

Location: Hard Bargain Players

Here for the first time is a stage version of the original story of Bambi written by Austrian novelist Felix Salten in the 1920s. Bambi: A Life in the Woods is an eloquent and haunting tale of growing up in a superbly theatrical and sensitive work of theatre, appealing to children and adults alike. Bambi becomes heir to his father, the great prince. After Bambi encounters and masters for the first time the novel feelings of love, fear, loneliness and independence, he comes to understand that all of Earth’s creatures are guided by a greater force than themselves—all are dependent on each. Intertwined in this great story is Bambi’s growing awareness of the fragility of the forest environment and the impact of human encroachment on all of the forest inhabitants.
