Over the course of one sultry evening, a prominent Southern family is pushed to the brink when tender memories are relived and life-altering secrets are revealed. Wealthy plantation owner Big Daddy's family has gathered to celebrate his 65th birthday, while sparing him the news that he's dying of cancer. As one son, a former football hero, mysteriously retreats from his desirable but sexually frustrated wife, his money-hungry brother and sister-in-law plot to secure more than their fair share of the family fortune. This Pulitzer Prize-winning drama by American icon Tennessee Williams sizzles with passion and greed. Learn More

FUN & NOBODY, written by Howard Korder and directed by Jeffrey Kieviet, is two connected One Acts that move from the very beginning. First Act follows two teens, Casper & Denny, on a crazy Thursday afternnoon that only ends on Friday morning. The dialogue is snappy and off-beat and Forest Orta & Adam Poynter own Korder's whacked-out, teen-angst, f-bombing dialogue, making their relationship feel real and awkward and funny and relatable. The highlight, though, is Act II, as Rick Kopp's Carl, seamlessly slides through a slow downward spiral after losing his job. I felt like a voyeaur watching him. It was deliciously uncomfortable to see how the world suddenly looked so warped and how it affected him differently than it used to when he was a working man. Pam Paulson nails it as his concerned wife, who still believes in him. She watches his breakdown with concern & support. You can feel even when they argue it's always coming from a place of love, making me believe he will get though this with her by his side... which only makes the ending that much more shocking and awesome and effing right-on. The eighties rock music is fun too.

I really liked this show. It had in it some very interesting characters and great acting. It was two different plays that had some characters in both, which was something I had not seen before and thought it really worked. It was funny, crazy...continued
