It is soon apparent, however, that Mr. Manningham, a suavely handome man, is slowly driving his gentle, devoted wife, Bella, to the brink of insanity with an insinuating kindness tht masks more sinister motives. While he is out, Bella has an unexpected caller…amiable, paternal Inspector Rough who is convinced that Mr. Manningham is a homicidal maniac wanted for a murder committed fifteen years earlier in this very house. Gradually, the inspector restores Bella’s confidence and, as the evidence unfolds, some of the most brilliant, suspenseful dequences in modern theatre will play out.

Women Playing Hamlet

Teresa Wentzel

Hamlet’s a challenge for any actor, but when Jessica is cast as Hamlet in a New York production, it sends her into an existential tailspin. It doesn’t help that her acting coach is borderline abusive, or that every Starbucks barista with an MFA tells her she’s too young for the role, or that she’s somehow managed to make Sir Patrick Stewart her nemesis. Not to mention the fact that she’s a woman. How can Jessica figure out “to be or not to be,” when she can’t even figure out herself? Women Playing Hamlet is rip-roaring fun for Shakespeare fans and haters alike.

The Jack of Diamonds

Teresa Wentzel

Pedro, Ben and Claude discover that while they've been away at the Civil War, Betty and the other womenfolk have been doing all of the roping and ranching. This Western romp is inspired from Shakespeare's hilarious battle-of-the-sexes romantic comedy Much Ado About Nothing. Despite how much the cowpokes and the ladies of the ranch taunt each other, love seems to be in the air. Claude falls head over heels in love with Winny, a lovely Southern belle, but Calamity Jane, a rambunctious tomboy, secretly longs for Claude's affections and is bent on stirring up a big bowl of trouble when she doesn't get her way. Meanwhile, Ben and Betty are arch-rivals, only happy when they are insulting each other...or is it just their way of masking their deeply guarded feelings for one another?
