Announcing the 2021 Alibi Players Season!
Alibi Players is thrilled to announce that due to the success of Incident At Vichy and the generosity of second weekend ticket holders, even with the shortened run due to COVID-19, we will be expanding our 2021 season to two plays. All performances will be at Liberty Exhibition Hall.
January 15-24, 2021
THAT CHAMPIONSHIP SEASON
First up is That Championship Season by Jason Miller. This Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winning drama focuses on the 20-year reunion in 1972 of a Pennsylvania State Championship High School basketball team. In one evening the audience discovers that one fleeting moment does not define who we are and that winning at all costs on the court can end up costing you in life.
September 10-19, 2021
THE MEMORY OF WATER
Then, in September of 2021, we will be presenting The Memory of Water by Shelagh Stephenson. A heartwarming dark comedy that revolves around three sisters coming together for their mother’s funeral, this play focuses on perceptions and reminiscences that time tends to play tricks on.
The Telegraph (London) writes “This is a lovely piece, full of humour and heart…Where the play works best is…in its satisfying mixture of sardonic humour and deep emotion. Excellent jokes give way to festering resentments, booze and dope-fuelled hilarity to sudden glimpses of buried secrets and aching pain.”

Alibi Players’ final weekend of performances (March 20-22, 2020) of INCIDENT AT VICHY have been cancelled.
This is due to the new guidelines and mandates by the Governor of Ohio causing the closure of our venue, the Liberty Exhibition Hall. We do thank everyone who managed to come out to see the show however, and it was a brief but fabulous run. Thanks again!
Scheduling changes have created a need for two adult males in the exciting winter production of INCIDENT AT VICHY, produced by Alibi Players.
The roles are: French waiter and Nazi guard.
Rehearsal begin Feb. 3rd, show dates are March 13-22nd. For more information, contact director Alan Kootsher email@example.com or producer Marcha Hunley firstname.lastname@example.org.
The play is an intense examination of human behavior, written by Arthur Miller, and is as relevant and timely today as it was 55 years ago. The production will be at the Liberty Exhibition Hall, a new exciting venue in Northside.
Alibi Players is seeking a fair-haired male actor, ages 20-40, for the role of “Guard” in their winter production of INCIDENT AT VICHY.
Rehearsals will start in February, show opens March 13th. This is a nonspeaking role; it is extremely important part of the production.
For more information, contact Alan Kootsher at email@example.com.

INCIDENT AT VICHY is a 1964 play by American dramatist Arthur Miller about a group of men detained in Vichy France and held to wait unknowingly, for what turns out to be their “racial” inspection by German military officers and Vichy French police during World War II. It focuses on the subjects of human nature, guilt, fear, and complicity and examines how the Nazis were able to perpetrate the Holocaust with so little resistance. Hailed as “one of the most important plays of our time,” by Howard Taubman in The New York Times, the play is as relevant today as it was 55 years ago.
