When Annie’s husband John dies of leukemia, she and best friend Chris resolve to raise money for a new settee in the local hospital waiting room. They manage to persuade four fellow WI members to pose nude with them for an “alternative” calendar, with a little help from hospital porter and amateur photographer Lawrence. The news of the women’s charitable venture spreads like wildfire, and hordes of press soon descend on the small village of Knapeley in the Yorkshire Dales. The calendar is a success, but Chris and Annie’s friendship is put to the test under the strain of their new-found fame.

The epic struggle between good and evil comes to life on stage in the musical phenomenon, Jekyll & Hyde. Based on the classic story by Robert Louis Stevenson and featuring a thrilling score of pop rock hits from multi-Grammy- and Tony-nominated Frank Wildhorn and double-Oscar- and Grammy-winning Leslie Bricusse, Jekyll & Hyde has mesmerized audiences the world over. An evocative tale of two men — one, a doctor, passionate and romantic; the other, a terrifying madman — and two women — one, beautiful and trusting; the other, beautiful and trusting only herself — both women in love with the same man and both unaware of his dark secret. A devoted man of science, Dr. Henry Jekyll is driven to find a chemical breakthrough that can solve some of mankind’s most challenging medical dilemmas. Rebuffed by the powers that be, he decides to make himself the subject of his own experimental treatments, accidentally unleashing his inner demons along with the man that the world would come to know as Mr. Hyde.

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.
