RICHARD II is an epic tale of fading power that sheds a light on the deterioration of a kingdom and the isolation of power. King Richard exiles his noblemen while seizing their land to carry on his own wars. As dissent continues to grow, a fight for the true heart of England begins and one man’s celestial right to rule is called into question creating the genesis of the “War of the Roses.” Don’t miss as CSC kicks off its first chronological history cycle while presenting the penultimate story in our quest to “Finish the Canon.”

Mariemont

Directed by DeeAnn Bryll
Produced by Ed Cohen

Cast: A.J. Ford as Victor Fleming, John Langley as David O. Selznick, Joel Lind as Ben Hecht & Rilla Foster as Miss Poppenghul

It’s 1939 and legendary Hollywood producer David O. Selznick has shut down production of his new epic, “Gone with the Wind.” Selznick pulls in famed screenwriter Ben Hecht and formidable director Victor Fleming for a complete script rewrite. On a hilarious, yet sometimes emotional roller coaster, they labor behind locked doors over five days to fashion a screenplay that will become the blueprint for one of the most successful and beloved films of all time.

GHOSTS runs Jan. 11-27

DTG_GhostsGHOSTS
Presented by Dayton Theatre Guild
Jan. 11-27
Dayton

Reviews: Dayton Most Metro |

Directed by Matthew W. Smith

Cast: Mrs Alving: Lisa Howard-Welch, Osvald Alving: Jared Mola, Pastor Manders: Chuck Larkowski, Jakob Enstrand: Dave Nickel & Regine Enstrand: Angela Timpone

A brilliant new translation by Christopher Hampton breathes new life into this classic drama. The ‘‘ghosts’’ in this play are taboo topics that cannot be openly discussed. This drama is one of Ibsen’s most powerful works, but also one of his most controversial. Family sins are revisited when a son returns home to dedicate an orphanage in his father’s name and becomes involved in a tryst that ends in the painful knowledge of long suppressed family truths.
