SpeakEasy Stage Company will proudly present the New England premiere of The New Century, a series of four short plays by comic mastermind Paul Rudnick. In each of these gay-themed one-act plays, Rudnick introduces us to some of his most lovable and eccentric characters to date, including:
Helene Nadler, an attractive Long Island matron out to prove that she is the most accepting, the most tolerant, and the most loving mother of all time. Bar none.
Mr. Charles, an effeminate late night cable TV host currently residing in Palm Beach, Florida, after having been exiled from New York for being “too gay” and;
Barbara Ellen Diggs, a Decatur, Illinois scrapbooker and competitive cake decorator out to prove the critical importance of crafts in our culture. Says Barbara, “Crafts allow me to express myself, to create something worth dusting.”
Each of these characters have their say, then meet in this provocative and outrageous new work which examines where society is headed in the new millennium.
SpeakEasy Producing Artistic Director Paul Daigneault will direct the Boston premiere of The New Century. The cast includes award-winning Boston actors Paula Plum, Robert Saoud, and Kerry A. Dowling plus Boston Conservatory seniors Emilie Battle and Bud Weber.
