A Dolls House, Part 2

Start Date: 4 Apr 2019
Category/Venue: Pure Theatre

Show runs through 20 April

It has been fifteen years since Nora Helmer slammed the door on her stifling domestic life, when a knock comes at that same door. It is Nora, and she has returned with an urgent request. What will her sudden return mean to those she left behind? Lucas Hnath’s funny, probing, and bold play is both a continuation of Ibsen’s complex exploration of traditional gender roles, as well as a sharp contemporary take on the struggles inherent in all human relationships across time.

Show Runs Through April 27

The Lion in Winter
By James Goldman

It is Christmas 1183 in King Henry II of England's palace in Chinon, France. Henry is discussing with his mistress, Alais, the upcoming day's events. Henry's family will be gathering for the holiday—his wife Eleanor, whom Henry has let out of prison for the occasion, and their three sons, Richard, Geoffrey, and John. Of course, much of the conversation and thought will center around Henry's successor to the throne. Henry makes it clear that he wants the youngest son, John, to be the next king, while Eleanor wants the oldest, Richard. Henry has also promised the young Prince of France, Philip, that Alais, Philip's sister, will marry Richard but he also promises Alais she can remain his mistress

THE MISS FIRECRACKER CONTEST

Show runs through 28 Apr

From the Pulitzer Prize Winning Author of Crimes of the Heart

Pulitzer Prize Winning Author Beth Henley brings us another critically acclaimed masterpiece focused on the life of Carnelle Scott, a woman with a “reputation” in a small town. This explosive comedy focuses on the annual Miss Firecracker Beauty Contest as Carnelle struggles against all odds and the bizarre and ridiculous characters she encounters to win the crown and replace her tarnished title of “Miss Hot Tamale”. While a hilarious and masterful look at identity and southern culture, this often moving play explores everyone’s need to be loved and accepted.

Saturday April 13 DOORS: 7:00 PM / SHOW: 8:00

The Black Jacket Symphony offers a unique concert experience through recreating classic albums in a live performance setting. A selected album is performed in its entirety by a group of handpicked musicians specifically selected for each album, with no sonic detail being overlooked--the musicians do whatever it takes to musically reproduce the album.

The performance is separated into two sets. The first set features the album being recreated as a true symphonic piece. The second set, which features a selection of the album artist's "greatest hits," opens in full contrast to the first set with an incredible light display and the symphony being much more laid back. The tone is set very quickly that the show will feature the high level of musicianship of the act being covered and will also be accompanied by all the bells and whistles of a major rock and roll show
