AGES OF THE MOON at Liberty Exhibition Hall

CP_Ages of the Moon logoLoneliness, isolation and one’s own mortality are heavy themes that are front and center in the framed AGES OF THE MOON. It’s the latest play to hit Northside’s Liberty Exhibition Hall. The century old building turned theatre and performance hall will host the two man play in August.

Directed by film and television actor and playwright Kevin Crowley, the production is one of the last works of iconic American playwright Sam Shepard, AGES OF THE MOON, is a gruff and funny exploration about toxic masculinity and sanity.

Shepherd, actor and Pulitzer Prize winning playwright, penned the story of two friends reunited and bound by their mutual loneliness and desperation. Humor and heartache abound in this cast featuring local stage and screen actors Michael Shooner and Daniel Britt. The plays run starts Aug. 5 through Aug.27.

Cincinnati, OH – In the tradition of sketch comedy shows like Saturday Night Live and The Second City, Cincinnati’s very own PARTY BUS is revving up for a night of comedy inspired by nightlife antics, couples’ game nights, the Tri-State’s rich history, and much, much more!

The Clifton Players are proud to announce PARTY BUS as the inaugural show to kick off their season. Performances run Saturdays at 8pm from March 2-April 13 with an approximate run time of one hour and 20 minutes. Ages 18 and up.

Performances take place Liberty Exhibition Hall – 3938 Spring Grove Ave – Cincinnati OH 45223. The Liberty Exhibition Hall in the Northside, is newly open to the public after 73 years. Over a century ago, vaudeville acts would fill this space and entertain audiences with their wide ranging acts of performance artistry.

CPT_The Drowning Girls promo

Aug. 20-27
Liberty Exhibition Hall [Northside]

Directed by Bridget Leak

Cast: Mindy Heithaus, Eileen Earnest & Carol Brammer

Bessie, Alice and Margaret have two things in common: they are married to George Joseph Smith, and they are dead.  Surfacing from the bathtubs they were drowned in, the three breathless brides gather evidence against their womanizing, murderous husband by reliving the shocking events leading up to their deaths.  Reflecting on the misconceptions of love, married life, and the not-so-happily ever after, The Drowning Girls is both a breathtaking fantasia and a social critique, full of rich images, a myriad of characters, and lyrical language.
