A vanished father. A pill-popping mother. Three sisters harboring shady little secrets. When the large Weston family unexpectedly reunites after Dad disappears, their Oklahoman family homestead explodes in a maelstrom of repressed truths and unsettling secrets. Mix in Violet, the drugged-up, scathingly acidic matriarch, and you've got a major new play that unflinchingly—and uproariously—exposes the dark side of the Midwestern American family Winner of the 2008 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award.
BAINBRIDGE TO BROADWAY and THE TEMPEST
Tuesday March 28 and Thursday March 30, both showtimes at 7 p.m. at Bainbridge Performing Arts, 200 Madison Ave. Adult $12 - Senior $8 - Children/Students $8. Click here for tickets. This event features two plays for the price of one! The first, Bainbridge to Broadway is our annual student musical revue. This year we're telling the story of a group of aspiring Broadway stars who have to babysit a group of children and spend the evening spinning them a wild tale pulled from their favorite musical stories. Then teens from our program will perform The Tempest, one of Shakespeare's most magical, mysterious, and cerebral works in which a wizard, cast away for many years on a remote, enchanted island has the opportunity to wash his enemies ashore and lead them in a merry chase.
