The Price

by Arthur Miller


February 24 - March 18, 2006

Two brothers meet, after a sixteen year estrangement, in the attic of the family residence, where the old furniture is to be disposed of. The first is a policeman who sacrificed his education to care for his ruined, invalid father; the other an eminent surgeon who walked out on the family to concentrate on personal success. The brothers take a little time for amenities and feeling each other out before the basis of their long alienation and mutual bitterness emerges. It reveals the characters, including strengths and weaknesses, of the brothers to each other and themselves.

Little Theater Production of Hamlet


by Jean Battlo


May 12 - June 3, 2006

A sophisticated New York director with a successful Off-Broadway season under her belt travels to West Virginia to direct Hamlet under the auspices of a grant for 'under-served regions'. Gathering in Hattie's restaurant, this group perpetrates a harrowing production of Shakespeare. Amazing costumes and merru mishaps ladle hilarity on top of sincere attempts to tailor Hamlet to this remarkable cast. The play is the thing, and the result is a fractured, quixotic production that provides a fine example of realizing the impossible dream.
