A political comedy based on the novel An Unsocial Socialist by George Bernard Shaw, Smash tells the story of Sidney, an extremely wealthy socialist who bails on his bride on their big day because he needs to stay focused on his big plans to ... overthrow the British government. Eventually infiltrating a women's college, Sidney plans to take over the school while planting the potent seeds of radical socialism into the minds of these future companions of cabinet ministers and kings. But there are just a few things -- like love triangles, mistaken identities, Marx, pistols and proletariats -- standing in the way of Sidney's plans in this witty satire. Learn More
Reviews & Ratings
Two straight couples are confronted with their own homophobia and personal regrets in this classic play from legendary playwright Terrence McNally. Always considered a challenging play with its difficult subject matter, this will arguably be one of theatre Q’s most ambitious productions to date, as the set includes a pool onstage. Water on stage is always tricky, but to incorporate a pool into Dragon’s 42-seat venue will undoubtedly result in one of theatre Q’s most elaborate sets. Starring in the show are Meredith Hagedorn (Mountain View resident, members of Actors’ Equity Association), Jeffrey Hoffman (Berkeley resident and theatre Q co-founder), Mary Lou Torre (San Jose) and theatre Q managing artistic director, Dale Albright (Castro Valley). Terrence McNally won Tony Awards for best play for Love! Valour! Compassion! and Master Class. His other plays include Corpus Christi, which was named one of the best plays of 1998 by Time magazine; A Perfect Ganesh, a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize; The Lisbon Traviata; and Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune. He has written a number of television scripts, including ANDRE’S MOTHER, for which he won an Emmy Award. Mr. McNally has received two Guggenheim Fellowships, a Rockefeller grant, a Lucille Lortel Award, and a citation from the American Academy of Arts and Letters. A member of the Dramatists Guild since 1970, Mr. McNally was raised in Corpus Christi, Texas, and makes his home in New York City.
