The Plays

Swing & Miss, by Stephanie Haddad

Director: Ryan Walsh

On a very special night for a young Boston couple, things go hilariously wrong. And the waitress...sorry, server, is stuck in the middle. Like always.

Dave...........Andy Hicks
Caroline...........Gretta Beaty
Tessie...........Vickie Wu


Masshole Transit, by Jenn Dlugos and Charlie Hatton

Director: Stephanie Haddad

Digging the tunnels for America's first underground railway system is hard work, but Seamus and Jack are trying their best to keep their spirits up
while they work. Finishing first could ignite a fierce rivalry with New York City, where underground crews are also hard at work. When Seamus and
Jack discover they've woken Charlie, the sarcastic and prophetic demon of Boston Common... will they take his offer to help them win the race?

Jack...........Andy Lebrun
Seamus...........Mike Haddad
Charlie...........Leslie Drescher


The Song Is You, by Amy Roeder

Director: Shelley MacAskill

A magical night of music and dancing turns to tragedy as the Cocoanut Grove nightclub burns. Some seek to hide from the smoke and flames in the
basement storage room, while others find an escape route through the window, thanks to a song and a trumpeter's final bow.

Wendy...........Katie Armstrong
Bob...........Dennis Maler
Trumpeter...........Adam Schofield-Bodt
June...........Mary Parker
Panicked Man...........Joev Dubach


Mother Goose's Grave, by Amy Bennett-Zendzian

Director: Sue Downing

In an attempt to follow her dad's advice and "go to the source" for her research paper on the history of nursery rhymes, Mary tries to contact the
spirit of Mother Goose and instead raises the ghost of Mrs James Ball (along with a Revenant, or two or three...?)

Mary...........Sara Dion
Mrs. Ball...........Jackie Freyman
Revenant(s)...........TBD


The Hunchback of Boston Common, by Michael Lin

Director: Amy Bennett-Zendzian

Three humans, trying their best to survive in the irradiated wasteland that was once Boston, hope they don't have a run-in with the mutated
monster known only as the Hunchback of Boston Common.

Ludington...........Elizabeth McIntyre
Hancock...........Megan Hennessey
Hutchinson...........Tomo Lazovich
Hunchback...........Adam Schofield-Bodt


Reverse the Curse (2004), by Erika Reinfeld

Director: Ben Cordes

In 2004, Boston finally managed put to rest a spectre that had been haunting the city for a long time. Oh and besides that, the Red Sox won the
World Series that year for the first time in 86 years. But several months before that historic victory, same-sex marriage became the law in
Massachusetts, and couples rushed to formalize their relationships in the eyes of the state. On a warm afternoon in September, Janet and Susan
are preparing to take in a bit of both: a quick trip to City Hall to sign some papers, dinner, and a Sox game for them and the kids. No big deal!

Janet...........Marleigh Norton
Molly...........Finley Smith
Lucy...........Shannon Keane
Susan...........Elizabeth Leonard
