The boys of Baker Street have their most "Wilde" adventure yet in Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Jersey Lily, a new stage play from Katie Forgette (Assisted Living). History and fantasy mingle when Oscar Wilde brings his dear friend, the actress Lillie Langtry, to see detective Sherlock Holmes and his partner Dr. Watson. Someone has stolen the highly intimate letters Lillie exchanged with the Prince of Wales, and now she is being blackmailed. Holmes takes the case, even doffing his deerstalker to disguise himself as a character from Wilde's upcoming play, The Importance of Being Forthright (working title). Meanwhile, Watson falls head-over-heels for Langtry as a wicked professor tries to disgrace the Crown. Doris Merten directs this Victorian romp at Theatre Suburbia. Learn More

Goldstar isn't letting me just fill in a review without doing a rating, so I am giving this 5 stars for the way the theater handled a situation. Unfortunately the show did not go on the night we attended because one of the lead actors got a sudden severe nose bleed that would not stop. Most importantly we hope she is okay. The theater handled it all well and gave us vouchers for any future performance. We WILL be back for a future performance. Looking forward to it!
1945, WWII is going on overseas. Back home the local women gather to roll bandages for the soldiers, and plan the celebration of the 75th anniversary of the church. Red Cross smocks, bandages, wise cracks, and witty repartee help the First Baptist Six do their part for the war effort.
1970, and the six are back together to celebrate the 100th anniversary, and catch up on each other's lives. We will find what dreams were realized and what dreams were squashed. During this we will also find out what was really going on 25 years earlier. These mountain magnolias are pure gold, providing humor, drama, warmth, and six of the most wonderful characters you will see.
Written by Ron Osborne. Directed by Doris Merten with assistance from Haig Caesar.
Featuring: Renea Been, Carol Davis, Nora Hahn, Keitha Mae Hanks, Kristi Nicholson and Amesti Reioux.
