Longstreet Theatre

In the shadow of the Vietnam War, a young Australian director lands a job handling a group of inexperienced but colorful performers... in a mental institution.  Against surprising and touching odds, a motley band of players emerges ready to perform Mozart’s Cosi Fan Tutte. But can they sing? And who speaks Italian? A madcap look at theatre behind the scenes, Così is ultimately a fresh, startling play about personal dreams, madness, ambition, disappointment, creativity and transformation.  

“…a hoot from start to finish.”  -- The Daily Express

Almost, Maine

By John Cariani
Directed by David Britt

A delightful midwinter night’s dream!  As the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, the residents of a mythical Maine town called Almost find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways.  Through a series of nine variously heartbreaking and heartwarming vignettes, playwright John Cariani explores how we all strive to find love…almost. 

“A charmer… John Cariani aims for the heart by way of the funny bone.” — Star-Ledger
