Best of Philly Theater 2017
The Miser Philadelphia Inquirer
Voted Number 1 Live Theater Venue In Pennsylvania
a non-profit, semi-professional theater, has been creating theatrical productions of high literary and artistic standards for over 90 years.
“ The story unfolds at Belmont, a tranquil liberal arts college in Vermont, where Sarah Daniels, Dean of Students, suddenly finds herself faced with a super-explosive situation after one of the handful of African-American students at the school has reported receiving hate mail. As threats and abrasive confrontations among faculty and students multiply, the narrative, with insight and wry humor, tracks Sarah’s attempts to navigate a maze of posturing, accusations, and soul-searching on political correctness. The author exhibits a bold willingness to expose pervasive and long-standing racial tensions in an unremarkable setting.”
” as many twists as a farce,and that’s what it is—a post-comic, post tragic farce” The New York Times.
” … a brave, intelligent,and important play…” New York Magazine
” a complex, unnerving look at the way real people navigate between…racism and the perils of political correctness” Time
