Scotland, 1945: Seven young women, all members of the Women's Royal Naval Service (aka Wrens), are packed together in a tiny barrack on the eve of V-E Day. All from different backgrounds, regions, religions and classes, the women must confront complex emotions and decisions as they face the prospect of peace, which also means an end to their newfound wartime independence in Wrens. Written by Anne McGravie, this semi-autobiographical drama is an examination of loyalty, morality and duty during World War II. Learn More

We absolutely loved it! The play was fun, funny, entertaining, shocking, and suspensful. We were still smiling when we left. There was not a bad seat in the theatre. And, the volunteers were very nice and pleasant. I would definately attend an event again.

_Murder at the Orient Burlesque _
by Carol M. Rice, directed by Mikey Abrams
When Russian princess Katherina Anastasia Faberge Antoinette joins the cast of the burlesque at Christie’s Orient Palace, the trouble begins, so it’s not a surprise when she turns up dead after only one performance.
As Detective Red Flannegan quickly discovers, everyone has a motive, and the Czarina was not only shot, but poisoned, stabbed, electrocuted and strangled. The question then becomes not who did it, but who did what, and is there anyone who didn’t?
A riotous comedy by Rover’s Artistic Director and the author of our Around the World in 80 Days.
