An Evening of David Ives
Show Dates: Friday and Saturday - 7:30pm, May 24, 25, 31, June 1
Saturday Matinees - 2pm, May 25, June 1
Experience the brilliant wordplay and soaring imagination of David Ives, as we present three one-act plays from his most popular work, All in the Timing –– Foreplay, or the Art of Fugue; Sure Thing; and Variations on the Death of Trotsky.
HuffPost Arts describes All in the Timing as a "candy sampler of Ives's special humor, a half-dozen absurdist plays that twist time and language," and The New York Times calls them "utterly delightful one act plays that percolate with comic brio." Time credits Ives's work as "theater that aerobicizes the brain and tickles the heart," while critic Vincent Canby describes Ives as "wizardly ... magical and funny."
Directed by Hetty Thomae, the show also features a collection of hilarious short monologues. With Rebecca Bailey, Vincent McBeigh, Paul Hunt, Janet Eller, Molly McDermott, Pat Langille, Robert O'Leary, Ian Coleman, Danielle Cohen, Rachel Giambruno. Produced by Patrick Freund.
The Sure Thing
The Death of Trotsky
Foreplay, or the Art of the Fugue
Welcome to Parish Players, an incorporated not-for-profit membership theater group based at the Eclipse Grange Theatre in Thetford Hill, Vermont. We are a community theater staffed and run by volunteers. Come join us. We welcome your participation, whether as an audience member, on the stage or behind-the-scenes (or all three!). We have lots to offer.
Painting - Mission Accomplished
Thanks to the hard work of several Parish Players and a few friends, the front of the Grange is looking mighty fine. A big thanks to the following painters:
New Bulletin Board
Shelby Grantham and Janet Eller worked on replacing the bulletin board on the porch with a new cork one sporting a green frame to match the newly painted front doors.
Restored Sandwich Board
If that weren't enough, Barbara Payson has restored the sandwich board to make it weatherproof and it looks great. THANKS TO EVERYONE!
