Assumptions by Lynne Bolen

Stay ahead of the playwright in this delightful, witty comedy that twists and turns at every opportunity!

A romp for any actor...


Two Dads by David Auburn

Two fathers meet at a resort and compare “war” stories of parenting. Pulitzer Prize winner David Auburn’s one- act gem

is equal parts comic and heartbreaking as we come to know the pride and limits of fatherhood.


The Bear by Anton Chekhov

Will it end with a duel, a heart attack, or a wedding? In Anton Chekhov’s one-act farce The Bear,

two fierce, passionate, ridiculous individuals come to know themselves, and each other,

in the course of an argumentative afternoon!

Each month between January and April, arrive at noon and settle in for a program of clever, provocative and often hilarious one-act plays written by both award-winning and emerging playwrights and read by terrific professional actors, many of whom are known from theater, film and television. 

After a short discussion with the actors, the director, and often a playwright or two, enjoy a delicious boxed lunch catered by one of our local gourmet restaurants. Then go back to work or continues on your day. It’s an opportunity for people to munch on lunch with friends, and then enjoy stimulating theater -

all in their own backyard!

And within the lunch hour (and a half!)
