The Rude Mechanicals’ next live show at the Greenbelt Arts Center! “Twelve Angry Women,” by Reginald Rose, stage version by Sherman L. Sergel, produced by special arrangement with the Dramatic Publishing Company of Woodstock, Illinois, both tells a story and examines our society. The story is straightforward: twelve strangers must vote guilty or not guilty to decide the future of a young man charged with the murder of his father. Their verdict must be unanimous. The drama is played out in a claustrophobic jury room during an unbearable hot summer day. The environment is a crucible—a vessel that purifies through fire. Each of the jurors is forced to face herself—her life experiences, prejudices, personalities, and biases. Herein lies the ever-ascending drama of the play—the conflicts of every jury member within herself and with her fellow jurors as they examine the evidence.

Tickets: $24 General Admission; $22 Senior/Military; $12 Child/Student.
Vaccination and masks required. Tickets available here.

Cancelled: Arcadia at the Greenbelt Arts Center, May 15-31


By Tom Stoppard
Directed by Randy Barth

May 15 – 31, 2020

Location: Greenbelt Arts Center

Tom Stoppard’s Arcadia has won awards and accolades ever since its first appearance in 1993. It is set in an English country house, and takes place in both early 1800s and the present day in 2000. There scholars debate the relationships between past and present, order and disorder, and certainty and uncertainty. The (often inaccurate) sleuthing of the modern researchers is contrasted with those who lived there before and provide both comedy and drama. And indeed, there are scandals, both academic and personal, that keeps the plot shifting. It presents a rich combination of farcical elements, clever wordplay, and omens of a dark future.
Ticket prices: $24 General Admission, $22 Seniors/Military, $12 Student/Youth. Buy tickets here.
