Based on Louisa May Alcott's 1868–69 semi-autobiographical two-volume novel, it focuses on the four March sisters— traditional Meg, wild, aspiring writer Jo, timid Beth and romantic Amy,— and their beloved mother Marmee, at home in Concord, Massachusetts, while their father is away serving in the military. Intercut with the vignettes in which their lives unfold are several recreations of the melodramatic short stories Jo writes in her attic studio.

AUDITION INFO

The play concerns the lives of four friends in their late 20s and their search for relationships in 21st century New York City. Playwright Joshua Harmon explained the premise by saying: “How do you make life work for yourself when you feel that you’re not living the life you’re supposed to be living or want to be living? And how do you deal with that when the changes that you need to make are in some ways outside of your control?"

LEWISTON

Alice and Connor sit by their roadside stand selling cheap fireworks while developers swallow the land around them. Promised a condo in the new development, their future is secure. Enter Marnie, Alice’s long-lost granddaughter, proposing to buy the land to save her family’s legacy. Marnie and Alice will become reacquainted with each other’s deeply held secrets, uncertain pasts, and hopeful futures. Hunter, a 2014 MacArthur Fellowship recipient, explores the emotional frontiers of a family struggling to make a home in the vastness of the American landscape with affection, poignancy, and a profound sense of empathy.

CLARKSTON

Jake meets Chris when they are assigned to the same night shift at Costco in Clarkston, Washington. Chris has a hard life; his mom is a meth addict, and living in Clarkston has forced him down a dead-end road. He has promise, but he’s “stuck.” Jake went to a liberal arts school, is gay and out, but fled his Connecticut town when he was diagnosed with a fatal illness. Wanting to see the ocean, he came to Clarkston, but was sidetracked by his illness. He and Chris form an awkward bond: both are gay, but have led completely different lives. Can they learn to help each other?

THANK YOU, DEAR SPONSORS

What began as a dream to provide a new theatre experience in the Benton Harbor Arts District quickly became reality when we opened our doors in 2019. While countless caring individuals worked hard to get us off the ground, we couldn’t be more grateful to the generosity of these corporate donors who have supported us from the beginning. 

 

We hope our community appreciates these community leaders as much

as we do by supporting their businesses in ways big and small.
