Day 210 Greater Tuna Comedy Play in Chatham MA

The Chatham Drama Guild at  will be performing the comedy play  Greater Tuna  by Jaston Williams, Joe Sears and Ed Howard for 3 weekends on Cape Cod including Memorial Day weekend.   The  off broadway  plays are at once an affectionate comment on small-town, Southern life and attitudes but also a withering satire of same.

Greater Tuna is the hilarious comedy about Texas’ third smallest town, where the Lion’s Club is too liberal and Patsy Cline never dies. The eclectic band of citizens that make up this town are portrayed by only two performers, making this satire on life in rural America even more delightful as they depict all of the inhabitants of Tuna — men, women, children and animals. The show began as a simple party skit based on a political cartoon more than 25 years ago in Austin, Texas. Talented creators Joe Sears, Jaston Williams and Ed Howard were the imaginative authors that parlayed the sketch into a critically acclaimed production which has entertained audiences across the country ever since.

The show will run three weekends from May 17-June 2 on Friday and Saturday evenings at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. Tickets are $12 for students w/ID and $18 for adults and may be reserved by calling the CDG Box Office at 508-945-0510.  The theatre offers a cash bar and is both air conditioned and handicapped accessible.

Day 207 Arthur Miller Play The Price in Dennis MA

The Eventide Arts theater group  will be presenting   the Broadway play   Arthur Miller’s Play  “The Price”  during Thursdays –Sundays in May 2013 at the Dennis Union Church on Cape Cod.

The Tony nominated play is set in the attic of a Manhattan brownstone, filled with sheet-draped furniture, piles of books, rolled up carpets, and an old Victrola, the lives of four people converge one late afternoon in November, 1967, and none of them is unchanged by the encounter. Victor and Esther Franz are waiting for an antiques dealer, Gregory Soloman, and Victor’s long estranged brother, Walter. The meeting of two brothers – one a successful surgeon, the other a police sergeant – takes place after many years of estrangement and is necessitated by the task of disposing of their parents’ property. A wary civility soon gives way to accusations and counter-charges. Before these brothers part, festering bitterness, resentments and jealousies will boil over. The Price is ostensibly about the amount of money an antique dealer is willing to pay for the roomful of items. Yet it is viscerally about the cost of doing business as a brother, a son, a spouse, and as a human being. Arthur Miller is a master at telling stories rooted in family dynamics. The Price explores sibling rivalry, confrontation with the past and with their memories, the effects of the Great Depression, the pursuit of a dream, and the responsibility one must assume for one’s own life.

Tickets are $20 and can be purchased here
