Branch River Theatre is pleased to present the Broadway hit and Tony award-winning Neil Simon comedy play “Brighton Beach Memoirs” directed by CJ Cummings. Performances will be on May 29, 30 & June 5, 6 at 8pm and May 31 & June 7 at 2pm at the Marlborough Community House, 160 Main St., Rt 101, Marlborough, NH. This is the first in a trilogy of semi-autobiographical coming-of-age comedy plays written by Neil Simon, preceding “Biloxi Blues” and “Broadway Bound”. Eugene Morris Jerome, the 15-year-old “Neil Simon” character, narrates and comments on this story of a Jewish family in 1937 Brighton Beach in Brooklyn, NY. Eugene is a pretty normal 15-year-old – obsessed with sports, dealing with his budding libido and caught in those awkward years between being a kid and an adult. He has a way of seeing things, though, and figuring out more than you’d expect him to understand about what’s going on in his home. Eugene’s overworked father; Jack, matriarchal mother; Kate and trouble-magnet of an older brother; Stanley, not to mention his widowed Aunt Blanche and her two daughters, Nora and Laurie, are all living together under one small roof and trying to cope with what life throws their way. As well as the everyday problems, the Great Depression, the inevitability of World War II and anxiety over the fate of relatives still in Poland loom heavy over the family. It was with this play, which premiered some 30 years ago, that Simon began to get some critical respect. And with good reason – it’s an enormously entertaining show, as funny as any of his comedies but poignant and heartwarming as well.

The ladies of the F.A.H.E.T.G. Dramatic Society are at it again! This time they are putting on the very ambitious “Macbeth” for the Drama Finals at Welwyn Garden City. And, as usual, even after 9 months of painfully painstaking rehearsals, things do not go as expected. One character breaks her leg prior to the show and `soldiers' on, only to have her injuries multiply as they perform. Lady Macbeth gets on the wrong bus and is lost, forcing the Stage Manager, Henry, beard and all, to fill in. The Adjudicator, George Peach, announces that they only have 8 ½ minutes left to finish the play or they're disqualified, all the while,preparing for his own special `fancy' dress event. And, of course, Mrs. Reece tries to keep things on track and organized, failing miserably.

All performances will be at the Community House of Marlborough, 160 Main St., Rte. 101, Marlborough, NH on March 20, 21, 27 & 28, 2015 at 8 p.m. and March 22 & 29, 2015 at 2 p.m. Tickets will be $15 General Admission and $12 Seniors (62 and up) and Students.

with Jason Manos

A fun, fast-paced comedy with some spooky bits thrown in for good measure!...A hilariously witty whodunit murder mystery that takes place in NYC at a 1940s radio station. Murder causes madness and mayhem to run rampant while a radio show cast scrambles to do a live broadcast on Halloween night.
