HEDDA GABLER
by Henrik Ibsen
directed by Rachel Tamarin

January 26 – February 2

Cahill Theater, College of Mount Saint Vincent

Join us for Ibsen’s masterpiece of realism – a story that permanently changed the face of world drama. After returning from her honeymoon, Hedda discovers that her marriage will not be the life of wealth and excitement she anticipated. Her own desires seemingly thwarted, she sets out to change to change the course of another person’s destiny.


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.
