Comedians

 

by Trevor Griffiths

Directed by Johnny Peifer

Manchester 1983, the Sex Pistols are the screaming voice of a generation going nowhere but to the United vs City derby and/or back on the dole. Six working-class heroes face their final exam night in an adult education stand-up comedy class, but the bigger test is their loyalty to their teacher, to each other. God save the Queen.

Our House

by Theresa Rebeck

Directed by Ryan Wantroba

Are news and entertainment interchangeable? Our House is a deliciously scathing comedy that takes on a media-obsessed culture intent on turning even the most sobering crisis into sexy entertainment. A darkly comic look at America’s obsession with “reality” television.  Auditions are scheduled for May 20 and 21 at 7 pm at the theater 116 Main St., New Britain, CT.
