The Best of Seasons Past

Like a bowl of Chex Mix at a holiday party, this showcase features a diverse assortment of tasty theatrical treats written by local and national playwrights. This collection of nine one-act plays includes everything from the story of the first-ever Christmas to the tale of the tiresome search for the perfect Christmas tree.

Good People

By David Lindsay-Abaire
February 9 - 18th at 7Stages in Little 5 Points
Directed by Jeffery Brown

Welcome to Southie, a Boston neighborhood where a night on the town means a few rounds of bingo, where this month's paycheck covers last month's bills, and where Margie Walsh has just been let go from yet another job. Facing eviction and scrambling to catch a break, Margie thinks an old fling who's made it out of Southie might be her ticket to a fresh new start. But is this apparently self-made man secure enough to face his humble beginnings? Margie is about to risk what little she has left to find out. With his signature humorous glow, Lindsay-Abaire explores the struggles, shifting loyalties and unshakeable hopes that come with having next to nothing in America.

First Date

Book by Austin Winsberg
Music and lyrics by Alan Zachary and Michael Weiner

When blind date newbie Aaron is set up with serial-dater Casey, a casual drink at a busy New York restaurant turns into a hilarious high-stakes dinner. Other restaurant patrons transform into supportive best friends, manipulative exes, and protective parents, who sing and dance the couple through ice-breakers, appetizers and some seriously saucy chemistry. Can this couple turn what could be a dating disaster into something special before the check arrives?

Leaving Iowa

By Tim Clue and Spike Manton

A hilarious, family-friendly comedy that is a loving toast to the "greatest generation," and their dedication to the family road trip. Don Browning, a middle-aged writer, returns home to finally take his father's ashes to his childhood home, as requested. But when Don discovers Grandma's house is now a grocery store, he begins traveling across Iowa searching for a proper resting place for his father. As he drives those familiar roads, the story shifts back and forth between the present and memories of the annual, torturous vacations of Don's youth, and ultimately, he finds the unpredictable and perfect final destination.
