Blithe Spirit



by


Noel Coward




Seeking background material for a mystery he is working on, novelist Charles Condomine invites eccentric medium Madame Arcati
to his home in Lympne, Kent, to conduct a séance. As Charles, his wife Ruth and their guests the Bradmans barely restrain themselves from laughing,
Madame Arcati performs peculiar rituals and finally goes into a trance. Charles then hears the voice
of his dead first wife, Elvira . When he discovers that the others cannot hear her, he passes off his odd behaviour
as a joke. When Arcati recovers, she is certain that something extraordinary has
occurred, but everyone denies it.











Table Manners

by

Alan Ayckbourn

"Oh" is not widely acknowledged as one of the funniest words in English. Nor does the simple "aah" generally induce
convulsive giggles.
Yet these unassuming monosyllables acquire brute force in Alan Ayckbourn's "Norman Conquests,"
crippling you with laughter that shakes the body and, more subversively, fractures the soul.
"Conquests" suggests nothing so much as Chekhov pumped full of nitrous oxide.
Like "The Seagull" it is built on one of the wonderful paradoxes of theater:
deeply unhappy people can generate profound happiness in audiences allowed to eavesdrop on their lives.
Out-of-town visitors descending on a resentful homebody in the country.
That's the starting point in at least three Chekhov plays,
"The Seagull," "Uncle Vanya" and "The Cherry Orchard."













The Doctor's Dilemma


by


George Bernard Shaw





The eponymous dilemma of the play is that of the, newly honoured doctor, Sir
Colenso Ridgeon, who has developed a revolutionary new cure for tuberculosis.
However, his private medical practice, with limited staff and resources, can
only treat ten patients at a time. From a selection of fifty patients he has
selected ten he believes he can cure and who, he believes, are most worthy of
being saved. However, when he is approached by a young woman, Jennifer Dubedat,
with a deadly ill husband, Louis Dubedat, he admits he can, at a stretch, save
one more patient, but that the individual in question must be shown to be most
worthy of being saved.







The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

by

Mark Hadden




The play is about a 15-year-old amateur detective named Christopher John
Francis Boone who appears to have Asperger syndrome, although the affliction is
never explicitly stated in the play. The titular curious incident is the
mystery surrounding the death of a neighbour's dog.
The play achieved a remarkable success at the Royal National Theatre in London
in 2013.









Uncle Vanya

by

Anton Chekhov


For years Vanya and his niece Sonya have worked tirelessly to keep the family’s dilapidated, remote estate from ruin. The return of Vanya’s brother-in-law Professor Serebryakov and his captivating second wife Yelena, and frequent visits from the charismatic Doctor Astrov, knock their lives off course as old loyalties and new loves conflict. When the Professor announces his plan to sell the estate, Vanya and Sonya are faced with an uncertain future and Vanya is provoked into a shocking act of violence.



















The Guardsman


by


Franc Molnar


When a jealous husband trys to prove to himself that his wife is unfaithful by disguising himself as a Guardsman and courting her, we have the elements of a very funny comedy.
















Performances in BLUE are at the Festival Theatre Performances in RED are at the Unadilla Theatre

Both theatres are located a few yards from each other.
