2016

Good Kids by Naomi Iizuka
Directed by Carrie Winship

Something happened to Chloe after that party last Saturday. The problem is, Chloe can’t remember anything about that night. Provocative and stunningly current, Good Kids explores the public and unsettling aftermath of a sex crime and its cover-up. Who’s telling the truth? Whose version of the story do you believe? And what does that say about you?

Death of a Salesman by Arthur Miller
Directed by Dr. Suzanne Burgoyne
Rhynsburger Theatre

Arthur Miller’s Pulitzer prize-winning Death of a Salesman is one of the great American plays of the 20th century. With emotional power, it explores the search of a man for his identity, the conflict of father versus son, and the distortion of the American dream into a quest for materialistic success. Alas, the fatal flaws Miller found in 20th century America still exist in the 21st. Part of the Missouri Theatre Concert Series.
