MPI_logo 2020Mariemont Players, Inc. is pleased to announce our 2022-2023 season!

September 8-25, 2022
This Random World by Steven Dietz
Directed by Laura Berkemeier

Mining the comedy of missed connections, This Random World asks the serious question of how often we travel parallel paths through the world without noticing. This funny, intimate, and heartbreaking play explores the lives that may be happening just out of reach of our own. (Whimsical Drama)

November 3-20, 2022
The Gods of Comedy by Ken Ludwig
Directed by Jennifer Keith Day

Daphne and Ralph are young classics professors who have just made a discovery that’s sure to turn them into academic superstars, but something goes disastrously wrong. The Ivy League will never be the same as a pair of screwball deities encounters the carnal complexity of college coeds, campus capers, and conspicuous consumption. (Comedy)

January 12-29, 2023
Dearly Departed by David Bottrell and Jessie Jones
Directed by Aaron Whitehead

In the Baptist backwoods of the Bible Belt, the beleaguered Turpin family proves that living and dying in the South are seldom tidy and always hilarious. Despite their earnest efforts to pull themselves together for their father’s funeral, the Turpins’ other problems keep overshadowing the solemn occasion. (Comedy)

March 9-26, 2023
August: Osage County by Tracy Letts
Directed by Jerry Wiesenhahn

When the large Weston family unexpectedly reunites after Dad disappears, their Oklahoman family homestead explodes in a maelstrom of repressed truths and unsettling secrets. Mix in Violet, the drugged-up, scathingly acidic matriarch, and you’ve got a major play that unflinchingly—and uproariously—exposes the dark side of the Midwestern American family. Winner of the 2008 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award. (Drama)

May 4-21, 2023
Cry It Out by Molly Smith Metzler
Directed by Becky Collins

In the sweet spot between their yards where both baby monitors get reception, new moms Jessie and Lina bond over coffee during naptime while laughing through the highs and lows of motherhood. A comedy with dark edges, Cry It Out takes an honest look at the absurdities of being home with a baby, the power of female friendship, the dilemma of going back to work, and the effect class has on parenthood in America. (Comedy/Drama)

July 13-30, 2023
Ain’t Misbehavin’
Directed by Elizabeth Leigh Taylor

Assembled under the expert eye of director/lyricist, Richard Maltby, Jr., Ain’t Misbehavin’ is one of the most popular, well-crafted revues of all time and winner of the 1978 Tony Award for Best Musical. Not quite a biography, Ain’t Misbehavin’ evokes the delightful humor and infectious energy of this American original.
