BRANCH RIVER THEATRE




Branch River Theatre is proud to present
"Lord Fauntleroy's Tale starring David Beemer" written and directed by Greg C. Pratt. Written while attending the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York City, this laugh out loud, highly-commended play, provides an experience that is moving and genuinely funny! This magnificent comedy appears to be about a group of a community theater actors performing a Shakespeare-esque play, but as misfortune and difficulties arise the show takes on many twists and turns! Audiences lauded the original NYC performance in 2004, describing it as "hilarious", "thought-provoking", "extremely witty", and "a love-letter to theater and audiences alike". It's "everything a play should be", with laughter, heart, and the reminder that we're all in this together!

The Dining Room is a mosaic of interrelated scenes, some funny, some touching, some sorrowful. Taken together, A.R. Gurney’s mural of different stories create a complex portrait of the changing reality for the American middle class. The actors (three men, three women) change roles, personalities and ages as they portray a wide variety of characters. From little boys to stern grandparents, giggling teenagers to downtrodden spouses. Each vignette introduces the audience to a new set of people, and how their relationships and challenges revolve around the family dining room: a father lectures his son on grammar and politics; a boy returns from boarding school to discover his mother's infidelity; an aging grandmother doesn't recognize her own sons at Christmas dinner; a daughter, her marriage in ruins, pleads futilely to return home, and many others. Weaving together smoothly and swiftly, the varied scenes coalesce in a theatrical experience of exceptional range, compassionate humor, and abundant humanity.

LOVERS
By: Brian Friel
Directed by: Wendy Almeida
6 PERFORMANCES
March 8, 9, 10, 15, 16, 17, 2019

LOVERS, is told in two parts: Winners and Losers,

and takes place in 1966

Northern Ireland.

In WINNERS, two commentators speak about the life and fate of young Mag and Joe, who are destined to be married in three weeks due to Mag’s pregnancy. The two young people are bursting with life, enthusiasm, and hope. Though their youth often leads to heated arguments, they soon dissipate through vows of love and carefree joking. What destiny lies ahead for such youthful passion?

LOSERS, on the other hand, tells the story of an older couple, Andy and Hanna, who are trapped in Hanna’s home by her invalid mother, Mrs. Wilson. Mrs. Wilson demands every moment of daughter’s time before and after they are married; continuing the intrusion into Hannah’s life thereby effectively ruining the couple’s relationship before it begins and after it has commenced…or does she?

Winners and Losers, in very different ways, both address love, what it means, and the choices we make when we fall deeply, desperately, into it.
