Written by Sam Shepard
Directed by Tad Janes

With “Buried Child,” the 1979 winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Sam Shepard takes a macabre look at one American Midwestern household.  In a squalid farm home, a family filled with suppressed violence and an unease born of deep-seated unhappiness keeps a dark secret.  The dysfunctional family includes a ranting alcoholic grandfather; a sanctimonious grandmother who goes on drinking bouts with the local minister; and their sons, Tilden, an All-American footballer now a hulking semi-idiot; and Bradley, who has lost one leg to a chain saw.  Into their midst comes Vince, a grandson none of them recognizes or remembers, and his girlfriend, Shelly, who cannot comprehend the madness to which she is suddenly introduced.  Shepard’s volatile drama is alternately grizzly, recognizable and menacingly funny.

October 1 through October 4 at 7:30 p.m. in WMC Alumni Hall

Written by William Shakespeare
Directed by Elizabeth van den Berg

In “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” William Shakespeare takes us deep inside an enchanted forest filled with impish fairies, young lovers, and romantic magic.  The play details the events surrounding the marriage of the Duke of Athens, Theseus and Hippolyta.  Involved in these (mis)adventures are four young Athenian lovers trying their best to partner successfully.  When the lovers cross paths with a troupe of actors and the forest’s mischievous sprites, a series of mishaps occurs and nothing is what it seems.  Among the most popular of all of Shakespeare's comedies, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” delightfully celebrates the whims of love.
