The Boys Next Door
by Tom Griffin

A local favorite, The Boys Next Door is a very funny yet very touching story, focusing on the lives of four mentally challenged men who live in a communal residence under the watchful eye of a sincere, but increasingly despairing, social worker. The hilarious attempts of the men to cope with the world around them is told with compassion and understanding.

The Receptionist
by Adam Bock

This “dramedy” by up and coming playwright Adam Bock will leave you walking out of the theatre with a lot to think and talk about. In the Northeast Office, a receptionist named Beverly efficiently deals with ringing phones and office gossip. But when a charming rep from the Central Office arrives to disrupt the friendly routine, the true nature of the company’s business becomes apparent.
The Receptionist
raises disquieting, provocative questions about a society’s complicity with evil.

Sisters of Swing:
The Story of the Andrews Sisters

by Beth Gilleland & Bob Beverage

They sold over 90 million records. They had more Top Ten hits than the Beatles or Elvis. And they still remain one of the best-selling female vocal groups of all time. Audiences understand why when they see this tour de force performance.
Follow sisters LaVerne, Maxene and Patty Andrews from their early days on the road to the conflicts that ultimately ended their joint performing career and enjoy over 20 hit songs like Don’t Sit Under the Apple Tree and Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy. You’ll go home tapping your foot and humming - nostalgic for a seemingly simpler time.

Tuna Does Vegas
by Joe Sears, Jaston Williams & Ed Howard

The lovable and eccentric characters from the ‘third smallest town in Texas’ reunite as the whole place decides to descend on ‘Sin City.’ The play balances both an affectionate commentary and a hilarious satire on small-town life.
Tuna townspeople, Vegas showgirls, Elvis impersonators and more are portrayed by only two actors - Interplayers and Spokane favorites, Bill Marlowe and Michael Weaver. They’ll be reunited with their director of two previous Tuna plays, Patrick Treadway. That makes for an especially memorable night of theatre.

February 23 - March 10, 2012

by Theresa Rebeck

Stamp collecting is far more risky than you think. When a pair of half-sisters discovers the “crown jewel” of stamp collecting after a death in the family, the double-crosses start and continue nonstop in this gripping tale. A seemingly simple sale becomes dangerous when three seedy, high-stakes collectors enter the sisters’ world. This viciously smart, fast, mean and often explosively funny play will keep you guessing and gasping as the house lights come up.

An Infinite Ache
by David Schulner

This is a fresh and heartfelt play about love, time and the infinite directions in which two lives can travel. Hope and Charles are a pair of lonely twenty-somethings about to end a supremely uninteresting first date. But just as they say good night, the myriad possibilities of their future life together come rushing to meet them. From their first kiss to their first child to a family heartbreak to a second chance, the play moves through their lives with breathtaking speed. A love story told with theatrical flair, this play is as dazzling as it is insightful.

Taking Steps
by Alan Ayckbourn

Farce first produced during Interplayers’ 13th Season in winter, 1994. In an antic game of “Who’s on first,” six people run amok through a three-story Victorian country house during one long and comically chaotic night and morning. As the property owner meets his prospective buyer and a lawyer to complete the sale of the house, the buyer’s loopy maybe-ex-wife, her brother and his fiancée make the transaction comically and unimaginably complicated. All this takes place on a highly ingenious and original set in which all the rooms, passages and stairs of all three floors are on a single level.
