The St. Paddy’s Day Escapade

Written and directed by Teresa Wentzel

It’s 1960 and Liam Fitzpatrick owns a shoe repair shop in south Chicago. He thinks of himself as a leprechaun…plays the flute, cobbles shoes, even sports a green jacket and red beard. And what a prankster he is! But someone in the neighborhood doesn’t like Liam’s hijinks and puts an end to them! Is it Norah, the gruff waitress across the street? Or Aiden, his bitter cousin who’s carrying a grudge? And then there’s Kayleigh, a pious housekeeper who still suffers from a broken heart? And don’t forget Rocco, a Chicago alderman, who has a lengthy history with Liam and plenty of resentments towards the annoying cobbler. Finally, there’s Paula, a longtime friend who’s being blackmailed by Liam! Who’s gonna kill him? Come join the St. Paddy’s Day festivities (or as we like to call it…the murder of the year)!

Arsenic and Old Lace

By Joseph Kesselring

Directed by Larry Chaney

We meet the charming and innocent ladies who populate their cellar with the remains of socially and religiously “acceptable” roomers; the antics of their nephew who thinks he is Teddy Roosevelt; and the activities of the other nephew—these require no further description or amplification here. Suitable for everyone. Presented by special arrangement with Broadway Licensing, LLC, servicing the Dramatists Play Service collection.
