Whodunit? An Improvised Murder Mystery

Saturdays, Jan 28 – Mar 18 at 7 pm

Classic whodunits with a twist: it’s all improvised! Our actors will weave webs of secrets, deception, and mystery as we wind our way through a different murder case each week. Our first improvised play, Slamming Doors, was a huge success, and this promises more excitement!

paradise-park-ashleyEvery Brilliant Thing by Duncan Macmillan

Apr 7-8, 13-15 at 7 pm, Apr 9 at 2 pm

Every Brilliant Thing starts with a child’s attempts to help her mother and follows her through her own grown-up struggles. It all comes down to a list of every brilliant thing in life – from ice cream to falling in love. It’s a heartfelt and hilarious look at depression in an intimate and interactive one-woman show!

Note: This play discusses suicide.

Dirt by Bryony Lavery and The Clean House by Sarah Ruhl

Dirt: Apr 21-22, May 4-6, 20 at 7 pm, May 7 at 2 pm
The Clean House: Apr 28-29, May 11-13, 19 at 7 pm, May 14 at 2 pm

“If you do not clean: how do you know if you’ve made any progress in life?”

Two powerful plays that find the humor in our most human experiences: life, death, lust, and jealousy. Performed in repertory, these two productions play off each other beautifully. The Clean House deals with death, the importance of laughter, and a woman’s relationship with her husband’s lover. Dirt follows a charming woman through the night she didn’t know would be her last – from dinner to dust.
