In an open-air theatrical experience that puts you in the thick of the action, Serenbe Playhouse stages the world premiere of Ten Mile Lake on the planks of an actual dock. Playwright Tira Palmquist's touching new drama finds protagonist Maggie returning home to visit her dying father, only to find that he gets along with his new nurse, Donny, better than he ever did with her. As the father-daughter duo reconnect and revisit old memories alongside the water, you take in this touching story from the scenic slope of a grassy embankment. It's outdoor theater at its most real, raw and powerful. Learn More

The actors and the director of the New African Grove Theatre Company did justice to August Wilson's Gem of the Ocean. A very good quality production. The scenery and lighting accented the both simplicity and the depth of the play's messages which are still relevant today. Typical of August Wilson, the play was lengthy and at times the character's dialogs too long, yet that is due to the playwright and not the director. I would encourage the actors to speak up a little louder and/or have the volume of the acoustics increased because at times the dialog was lost.
