DUNGEONS & DRAGONS AT BARTOW-PELL

Cast Party and Red Monkey Theater Group present Dungeons & Dragons at Bartow-Pell Mansion-Museum on Saturday, February 22 from 5pm-10pm (snow date Saturday, February 29).

Through a mixture of live role-playing and dice-driven tabletop gameplay guided by the Dungeon Master, guests will explore the mansion to unravel a mystery, defeat monsters and other foes, and discover magical treasure.

GOOD PEOPLE
by David Lindsay-Abaire

directed by Ed Friedman

Co-production with GoJo Clan

February 22 – March 8

Cahill Theater, College of Mount Saint Vincent

Red Monkey Theater Group partners with GoJo Clan to present a tough and tender play by Pulitzer Prize winner David Lindsay-Abaire. Welcome to Southie, a Boston neighborhood where a night on the town means a few rounds of bingo, where this month’s paycheck covers last month’s bills, and where Margie Walsh has just been let go from yet another job. Facing eviction and scrambling to catch a break, Margie thinks an old fling who’s made it out of Southie might be her ticket to a fresh new start. But is this apparently self-made man secure enough to face his humble beginnings? Margie is about to risk what little she has left to find out. With his signature humorous glow, Lindsay-Abaire explores the struggles, shifting loyalties, and unshakeable hopes that come with having next to nothing in America.
