A Coupla White Chicks Sitting Around Talking
Written by John Ford Noonan and Loudon Wainwright III
Directed by Siobhan Stevens
September 17, 19, 25, 27 / October 8, 10, 15
This two-character comedy takes place in the suburban Westchester County, New York kitchen of Maude Mix, who is having a tough day: her husband is off on a weekend spree with his secretary and she can’t get rid of the pesky neighbor who has just moved up from Texas. Hannah Mae Bindler badgers Maude into friendship and the two eventually join forces against their errant and erring husbands. This long running Off-Broadway hit starred Susan Sarandon and Eileen Brennan and features terrific roles which may be played by actresses from twenty to fifty.
Concord/Samuel French – Comedy
The Harry And Sam Dialogues
Book by Karen Ellison
Directed by Eric Jordan
September 18, 20, 24, 26 / October 2, 4, 16
Harry and Sam are old friends who like to pass the time posing outlandish questions to one another. “If ya had the choice would ya rather love a woman whose top half was a fish and whose bottom half was a woman or a woman whose top half was a woman and whose bottom half was a fish?” Harry asks. “Good question,” responds Sam. The questions are off the wall, but they slowly reveal the two men’s characters, and allow them to take stock of each other while avoiding mundane, but important, life matters. These life matters are woven into their interchanges—hints about their lives apart from one another.
Dramatists – Comedy

This immensely moving play won the London Theatre Critics Award for best play of 1980. Both Anne Bancroft and Julie Andrews have played the role of a famous concert violinist who is stricken with a disease which necessitates her retirement from the stage and which threatens her marriage as well. The play is structured as a series of interviews between the violinist and her psychiatrist in which she tries to cope with her illness and its effect on her life.
