Felix Ungar, a neurotic, newswriter, is thrown out by his wife, and moves in with his friend Oscar Madison, a messy sportswriter. Despite Oscar's problems – careless spending, excessive gambling, a poorly kept house filled with spoiled food – he seems to enjoy life. Felix, however, seems utterly incapable of enjoying anything and only finds purpose in pointing out his own and other people's mistakes and foibles. Click here for more info and tickets.

Moon Over Buffalo
Written by: Ken Ludwig
Directed By: Stasia O'Brien
June 20, 21, 27, 28 @ 8:00pm



In the madcap comedy tradition of Lend me a Tenor, the hilarious Moon Over Buffalo centers on George and Charlotte Hay, fading stars of the 1950's. At the moment, they’re playingPrivate Lives and Cyrano De Bergerac in rep in Buffalo, New York with 5 actors. On the brink of a disastrous split-up caused by George’s dalliance with a young ingénue, they receive word that they might just have one last shot at stardom: Frank Capra is coming to town to see their matinee, and if likes what he sees, he might cast them in his movie remake of The Scarlet Pimpernel. Unfortunately for George and Charlotte, everything that could go wrong does go wrong, abetted by a visit from their daughter’s clueless fiancé and hilarious uncertainty about which play they’re actually performing, caused by Charlotte’s deaf old stage-manager mother who hates every bone in George’s body.

A 1939 hit for the British playwright once nicknamed “The Master,” this farce is among the most shameless, liveliest, self-addressed valentines in theater history. The plot concerns a dashing, internationally acclaimed playwright, actor and songwriter, Gary Essendine, whose plans to leave on an African tour are complicated by romantic intrigue in his close circle. Just before he escapes to Africa, the full extent of his misdemeanors is discovered and all hell breaks loose. Present Laughter premiered in the early years of the Second World War just as such privileged lives were threatened with fundamental social change.
