For Better

Eric Coble

February 21- March 23

Central Coast Premiere!

In this plugged-in world of email, text messaging and camera phones, do a bride and groom really need to be in the same country to go on a honeymoon? Karen and Max are getting married. At least, if their jobs will ever let them be in the same city at the same time. A romantic comedy for the digital age, For Better is a hilarious new farce that pokes fun at our overdependence on the gadgets in our lives.

 “Eric Coble’s hilariously funny, psychologically astute portraits hit home with  rib- tickling acuity” – New York Times

 “Coble’s work is a tour de force with physical and verbal comedy to spare”- The New Yorker

 

 

 

GOOD PEOPLE May 16-June 22

GOOD PEOPLE

by David Lindsay-Abaire

May 16 – June 22

Central Coast Premiere! Nominated for the Tony Award for Best play 2011, NY Drama Critics’ Circle Awards Best Play 2011. In South Boston, good people lean on their neighbors through hardship, nights are spent playing bingo at the local church, and life is lived from paycheck to paycheck. Falling on tough times, Margie Walsh turns to former boyfriend Mikey, who has managed to escape his blue collar upbringing to become a successful doctor. Can she manage to turn her life and luck around? Margie is about to risk what little she has to find out. With surprising plot twists filled with humor and pathos this comic drama about social class asks the question does where we grow up determine our destiny? Is it strength of character or just a few lucky breaks that determines a person’s fate?

“….. scrappy characters have tremendous appeal.” – Variety

“incisively drawn characters and sharp, witty dialogue.” – NY Post
