YOU STILL CAN'T (May 27 - Jun 26, 1999)

by Ron Reed
World Premiere
A Stones Throw Production

The hilarious sequel to Kaufman & Hart's 1930-s classic, You Can't Take It With You. Sixty years have passed since Tony Kirby was grafted by marriage onto the wildly eccentric Vanderhof family tree. Now he prsides over two more generations of free-spirited artists, idealists and eccentrics gathered in the family brownstone in New York City.

Director - Jenn (Brose) Ohlhauser

SAINT JOAN (Apr 9 - May 1, 1999)

by George Bernard Shaw
A guest production by Candlelight Productions

A peasant girl defies convention and human authority as she raises a people's army to fight for her country' freedom. Ultimately she must choose – a life without liberty, or death. Shaw's dazzling wit and storytelling brilliance combine to create his most deeply moving and inspiring play.

"Beautiful, engrossing, and at times exalting" Alexander Woolcott

"Unquestionably, blindingly theatrical" Clive Barnes, New York Post
