VENUS IN FUR by David Ives
Directed by Alan Kopischke
CAST:
Neil Brookshire, LakerAnne Thrasher
 
A mysterious, funny and erotic drama. Thomas is desperate to find an actress to play Vanda in his adaptation of the classic sadomasochistic tale, “Venus in Fur.” Into his empty audition room walks a vulgar and equally desperate actress-oddly enough, named Vanda. Though utterly wrong for the sophisticated part, Vanda exhibits a strange command of the material, piquing Thomas’ interest. They blur the line between play and reality, entering into an increasingly serious game of submission and domination.

By Bill Cain
Directed by Robert Boles
CAST:
Claire Morkin, Neil Brookshire, Alan Kopischke,
Mark Moede
 
Midwestern Premiere.  Writers are told to write what they know. But as Bill Cain discovers in writing about his own family, sometimes those we are closest to are the biggest mysteries of all.  This beautiful new play is taken from Cain’s own experiences caring for his dying mother. He asks the questions that speak to the heart of every family: What will never change…and what has to?  Cain brings a fascinating view to this simple, powerful illustration of why the details of our lives and loves matter.

Growing up, Mattie’s brilliant older brother Jamie told her tales of ancient myths and the stars in the sky.  But as a young archaeologist in a turbulent 1968 Lebanon, he has a break with reality that changed both their lives forever.   It’s 30 years later, and an official investigation questioning the legitimacy of Jamie’s dig long ago forces Mattie to confront a family past shrouded in mystery as she reconciles her memories of the beloved brother of her youth and the challenging cipher he has become.
