GLENGARRY GLEN ROSS

By David Mamet

June 2 - 4 at 7pm and June 4 & 5 at 2pm in Stage Too   

Directed by Rob White

This scalding comedy took Broadway and London by storm. Here is Mamet at his very best, writing about small-time, cutthroat real estate salesmen trying to grind out a living by pushing plots of land on reluctant buyers in a never-ending scramble for their share of the American dream. Revived on Broadway in 2005 and 2012, this masterpiece of American drama also became a celebrated film which starred Al Pacino, Jack Lemmon, Alec Baldwin and Alan Arkin.

"Crackling tension… ferocious comedy and drama." - The New York Times

"Wonderfully funny… A play to see, remember and cherish." - New York Post

Winner! 1984 Pulitzer Prize for Drama
Winner! 1983 Olivier Award, Best New Play
Winner! 1984 New York Drama Critics' Circle, Best American Play
Winner! 2005 Tony Award, Best Revival of a Play

How to find STAGE TOO:

The best way to find STAGE TOO is to enter the alley between PCA and the merchants on Cortez St between Willis and Sheldon. From the alley, Murphy's is on the far left (south) and Peregrine is on the far right (north).  Walk through the alley until you arrive at STAGE TOO, one door to the south of the freight entrance to Peregrine Books.  There will be signage to mark the location.

PCA is very grateful to Ms. Judith Hardes and to the Prescott Lowes for their generosity which is assisting PCA with making Stage Too possible.  PCA is also extremely appreciative to all of our AMAZING volunteers who have put in many hours and lots of physical labor making Stage Too a viable space for performers, students, and patrons.

EDUCATING RITA 

By Willy Russell

Feb 4, 5, 6, 11, 12, 13, 18, 19, 20 at 7:30p,  Feb 6, 14, 21 at 2pm

Directed by Julie Chavez Harrington

 

A comedy of wits as a disillusioned English professor is no match for his new student, a working-class hairdresser seeking inner growth and improving her lot in life.  Michael Cain and a Juliet Walters starred in the very popular movie version. Frank is a tutor of English in his fifties whose disillusioned outlook on life drives him to drink and bury himself in his books. Enter Rita, a forthright 26 year-old hairdresser who is eager to learn. After weeks of cajoling, Rita slowly wins over the very hesitant Frank with her innate insight and refusal to accept no for an answer. Their relationship as teacher and student blossoms, ultimately giving Frank a new sense of self and Rita the knowledge she so craves. The play became a hit film with Michael Caine and Julie Walters.

"Warmly written...It is the interchange of feeling and realization of new approaches to life on both sides that make this play of particular interest." - London Telegraph"A marvelous play, painfully funny and passionately serious; a hilarious social documentary; a fairy tale with a quizzical, half happy ending." - London Times

A vanished father. A pill-popping mother. Three sisters harboring shady little secrets. When the large Weston family unexpectedly reunites after Dad disappears, their Oklahoma family homestead explodes in a maelstrom of repressed truths and unsettling secrets. Mix in Violet, the drugged-up, scathingly acidic matriarch, and you've got a major new play that unflinchingly—and uproariously—exposes the dark side of the Midwestern American family.
