Presenting the 2009 - 2010 Season

Oscar Wilde
The Importance of Being Earnest

Directed by Diane Mashia

Presented in September and October 2009

Click here for more information.

Jack loves Gwendolyn. Gwendolyn loves Earnest. Algernon loves Cecily. Cecily loves Earnest. Problem: Earnest doesn’t exist, but Jack and Algy both pretend to be Earnest to win over the women who love him. Oscar Wilde’s masterpiece is probably the most famous of all comedies, as it takes us wittily through and around the most ingenious case of "manufactured" mistaken identity ever put into a play. Full of social and cultural commentary of the times, but somehow still applicable today, Earnest is a delight for audiences of all ages!

With them is Canon Pennefather, Kay's guardian, and Jacqueline, who has been dogging their footsteps all through the honeymoon. Also on the boat are a rich, ill tempered old woman with her niece and companion, a rather direct young man, a German who nurses a grudge against Kay's father and Kay's maid. During the voyage Jacqueline works herself into a state of hysteria and shoots at Simon, wounding him in the knee. A few moments later Kay is found shot in her bunk. By the time the boat reaches its destination, Canon Pennefather has laid bare an audacious conspiracy and has made sure the criminals shall not go free.

DOUBLE BILL!

Sorry ... Wrong Number
by Lucille Fletcher

In Memoriam
by Marlene Remington

Directed by Karen Tuccio

Presented in May 2010

Click here for more information.

Sorry...Wrong Number: One of the great mystery thrillers, it’s the tale of a neurotic invalid, whose only contact with the outside world is her phone. Over this, one night, because of a crossed wire, she hears plans for a murder – but whose murder?

In Memoriam: Inspired by Agatha Christie’s Ten Little Indians, this fast moving murder mystery will send a chill down your spine. The play takes place in the pre-World War II years on isolated Castle Island, one of the Thousand Islands on the St. Lawrence Seaway in upstate New York. Five people gather for a weekend house party that turns into a nightmare as one person after the other is first accused of being a murderer and then is murdered—each by a different method. The plot thickens with each mysterious death until only two guests remain.

Double Bill - Murder Mysteries:  Sorry ... Wrong Number and In Memoriam presented in May 2010 by Rochester's Black Sheep Theatre.
