Journey into the Wild West in the year 1890, in this classic story of good versus evil, law versus the gun, one man versus Liberty Valance. When a young scholar from New York City travels west in search of a new life, he arrives beaten and half-dead on the dusty streets of Twotrees. Rescued from the plains, the town soon becomes his home. A local girl gives him purpose in a broken land, but is it enough to save him from the vicious outlaw who wants him dead? He must make the choice to turn and run or to stand up for what he believes.

[Dayton]

Directed by Debra Kent
Produced by K.L.Storer

Cast: Carly Risenhoover-Peterson as Josephine (Jo), Cassandra Engber as Francine,Heather Atkinson as Sherry & Scott Knisley as Donny

In suburban Massachusetts in the mid-1980’s, thirty-something-year-old Josephine Rosen has a dead-end job as a secretary and still lives at home with her hypochondriac mother. She started college but never finished, and has settled into a life that doesn’t offer much hope for the future. But when a new friendship at work and a chance flirtation with an old classmate give her hope for the possibility of change, she dusts off the Jane Fonda tapes and begins to take tentative steps towards a new life. This is a play about the tragedy and joy of figuring out who you are and letting go of who you were supposed to be.

OUR MOTHER’S BRIEF AFFAIR Runs March 1-17

dtg_ourmothersbriefaffairlogoOUR MOTHER’S BRIEF AFFAIR
Dayton Theatre Guild
March 1-17
[Dayton]

Directed by Patrick Allyn Hayes

Cast: Kathy Campbell as Anna, Mark Sharp as Seth, Kerry Simpson as Abby & Isaac Hollister as Abe/Lover

Anna is in the hospital having the latest of her frequent deathbed scenes, and this one looks like it may be the real deal. She makes a shocking confession to her grown children about an affair from her past that just might have resonance beyond the family. But how much of what she says is true? While her children try to separate fact from fiction, Anna fights for a legacy she can be proud of. With razor-sharp wit and extraordinary insight, OUR MOTHER’S BRIEF AFFAIR considers the sweeping, surprising impact of indiscretions both large and small.
