Becky’s New Car is a hilarious screwball comedy with serious overtones, a devious and delightful romp down the road not taken. Have you ever been tempted to flee your own life? Becky Foster is happily married to a good man, and together they struggle to survive in a bad economy and to support their son, who lives in the basement while he works toward his degree. Becky takes a trip on the “wild side,” with a billionaire who just happens to enter the car dealership where Becky works, only to discover that her inability to say “no” has created a trunk-full of problems. How can a nice person who has done something bad get herself out of this car wreck?

I Hate Hamlet at Laurel Mill Playhouse, Apr 1-17

I Hate Hamlet at Laurel Mill Playhouse, Apr 1 – 17

I Hate Hamlet
by Paul Rudnick
Directed by Ilene Chalmers
Produced by Maureen Rogers

Friday April 1, 2016 through Sunday April 17, 2016

Location: Laurel Mill Playhouse

A young and successful television actor relocates to New York, where he rents a marvelous, gothic apartment. With his television career in limbo, the actor is offered the opportunity to play Hamlet onstage, but there’s one problem: He hates Hamlet. His dilemma deepens with the entrance of John Barrymore’s ghost, who arrives intoxicated and in full costume to the apartment that once was his. The contrast between the two actors, the towering, dissipated Barrymore whose Hamlet was the greatest of his time, and Andrew Rally, hot young television star, leads to a wildly funny duel over women, art, success, duty, television, and yes, the apartment.

Performances run weekends from Friday April 1, 2016 through Sunday April 17, 2016 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 $15. Tickets can be purchased by clicking the link below. For further information, please call 301-617-9906 and press 2, or contact Maureen Rogers at maureencrogers@gmail.com or 301-452-2557.
