Current Season

In our 20th season, Red Monkey Theater Group, in residence at the College of Mount Saint Vincent, explores plays wherein characters are haunted by ghosts both symbolic and literal, and forced to confront the buried sins, failures, and secrets that hover at the edges of their daily lives.

A HAUNTED SEASON

MACBETH

by William Shakespeare

Directed by Amy Frey
October 11-14 2018
Cahill Theater, College of Mount Saint Vincent
In the mid 19th-century, on the grounds of what is now the College of Mount Saint Vincent, legendary Shakespearean actor and Bronx resident Edwin Forrest began the construction of Fonthill Castle, built to resemble Dunsinane, the home of Shakespeare’s Macbeth (Forrest’s most notable role). RMTG is proud to present a new production of Shakespeare’s classic tale of ambition and murder in Cahill Theater, just steps from the castle it inspired.

WATER BY THE SPOONFUL
by Quiara Alegría Hudes

Directed by Rachel Tamarin

Somewhere in Philadelphia, Elliot has returned from Iraq and is struggling to find his place in the world. Somewhere in a chat room, recovering addicts keep each other alive, hour by hour, day by day. The boundaries of family and community are stretched across continents and cyberspace as birth families splinter and online families collide. WATER BY THE SPOONFUL, winner of the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, is a heartfelt meditation on lives on the brink of redemption.
