"Marie Antoinette" by David Adjmi

"Marie Antoinette" by David Adjmi

Directed by Sullivan Canaday White

The Play

In David Adjmi’s contemporary take on the young queen of France, Marie is a confection created by a society that values extravagance and artifice. But France’s love affair with the royals sours as revolution brews, and for Marie, the political suddenly becomes very personal. From the light and breezy banter at the palace to the surging chants of "Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité!" in the streets, Marie Antoinette holds a mirror up to our contemporary society that might just be entertaining itself to death.

Reviews

David Adjmi’s jagged yet elegant historical riff... This tough-minded play doesn’t offer a middle path... Adjmi complicates the satire by imbuing his doomed protagonist with intellectual vibrancy and genuine compassion... (Four Stars, Critic's Pick)
                                                                                                           - Time Out New York

In Adjmi's work, even the most innocent-seeming sweetmeats have bitter fillings—brutality, acid, blood... Macarons cede to just deserts, gowns to rags, quips to insane ramblings, gilded dream to caustic nightmare. And still the degradation continues. We are powerless to stop the violence, and what we may have once desired we now deplore. Or, Adjmi asks, do we?

Beckett in the Bluegrass: A Samuel L. Beckett Festival

Beckett in the Bluegrass: A Samuel L. Beckett Festival

Rough for Radio II is a radio play by Samuel Beckett. It was written in French in 1961 as Pochade radiophonique and published in Minuit 16, November 1975. Beckett translated the work into English shortly before its broadcast on BBC Radio 3 on 13 April 1976. Martin Esslin directed Harold Pinter (Animator), Billie Whitelaw (Stenographer) and Patrick Magee (Fox). The English-language version was first published in Ends and Odds (Grove, 1976, Faber, 1977) as Radio II.

Esslin tells us that Beckett himself “regard[ed] the work as unfinished, no more than a rough sketch, and felt, having heard the production that it had ‘not come off’.”[1] Beckett "put the blame on the script but he told Esslin that 'the production which made the Animator and his team start briskly and become more weary and discouraged as time went on should already have started on a high degree of weariness and despair.'"[2]

Leading Ladies March 9 – April 2, 2017
By Ken Ludwig
A crazy-good comedy where two destitute Shakespearean actors, Jack and Leo, find themselves performing "Scenes from Shakespeare" on the Moose Lodge circuit in the Amish country of Pennsylvania! When they hear that an old lady in York, PA is about to leave her fortune to her long lost English nephews, they impersonate her beloved relatives and scheme to get the cash. But when they get to York, they find out that the relatives aren't nephews, but nieces! Undaunted, they dress up as the never-before-seen girls, promptly fall head-over-petticoat in love with the old lady's vivacious niece, Meg and her roller-skating friend Audrey. Throw a few more wacky characters and love-at-first-sight shenanigans and this comedy goes off the charts with laughter and love.

Bob Brunner, Director; Holly M. Davis, Production Stage Manager
