Playwright Victoria Stewart was inspired by two very different figures -- CNBC personality Suze Orman and Victorian novelist Henry James -- when writing her latest, most probing play, Rich Girl. For, despite their differences, both Orman and James (as well as most Americans) share a near hypnotic fascination with money and Rich Girl explores that fascination with startling sensitivity and imagination. When the sheltered Claudine meets the penniless Henry, the two fall helplessly in love. But for Claudine's mother, a tough-talking celebrity finance guru, this happiest of happy coincidence is a cause for suspicion and worry. Inspired by the classic play and film The Heiress, this clever new comedy examines women and their relationships with men, mothers and moolah -- if not in exactly that order. Courtney O'Connor directs the show at the Lyric Stage Company of Boston. Learn More

Been going to the Burlington Players performances at the Park Playhouse for years. Always very professional, always excellent and "Second Samuel" was no exception. This show was very humorous but yet it had a definite message about discrimination which it home to the audience. Thank you for the discount, and look forward to future discounted performances at the Park Playhouse. B. Faso
It was a simpler time in the late 1940s, especially in South Georgia and specifically in a sleepy little town called Second Samuel. What had been called the Great Depression was quickly fading into memory. The war had been won, the election was now over, and "Give 'em Hell Harry" was still president. It had been an exciting time for sure, but the folks in Second Samuel were ready for things to settle down and get back to normal. Except—this was the summer Miss Gertrude passed away, and deep dark secrets were about to be revealed. Nobody could have imagined how the death of one sweet little old lady would turn the entire town upside down, leaving everybody in Second Samuel wondering if anything would ever be normal again!
