Play(s) by Samuel Beckett 
From the Pulitzer Prize winning author of Waiting for Godot comes four lesser known yet equally powerful one act plays. Rough for Theatre I - two men (one blind, the other wheel chair bound) join forces to try and ensure survival in a post apocalyptic world. Footfalls - a woman copes with the world she knows by pacing the floor. Catastrophe - a dictator like director runs the final rehearsal of an absurd play. Play - a husband, his wife and mistress are forced to recall the details of their former love triangle. Directed by Lance Alan, Play(s) by Samuel Beckett features Linda Rabin Hammell, Heather Hudson, Dennis Kleinsmith, Mike McGettigan, and Jacklyn Strez .

Things that should thrill and delight our patrons:
-No hassle parking!
-No stairs to climb!
-2 bathrooms!
-Same intimate feel with a matured look! 

Be well!
