RTS: The Constant Wife

by Somerset Maugham - directed by Anita Chapman
April 26-28, 2019

Friday and Saturday at 2:30 pm in 35below; Sunday at 2:30 pm at the Reuter Center on UNCA’s campus

In this sophisticated Comedy of Manners about marital maneuvers in 1920's London, when an independent-minded woman discovers her husband is having an affair, instead of playing the cliched role of the wronged wife, she lays bare the hypocrisy of the double standard, presents an unsentimental analysis of marriage, and offers a sensible solution. Performed as Readers Theatre as a part of The Autumn Players' Readers Theatre Showcase Series.

An Iliad

By Lisa Peterson and David O’Hare * Produced by Rarely Theatre * Directed by Trinity Smith Keel
April 5-21, 2019

Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 pm; Sundays at 2:30 pm

Poetry and humor, the ancient tale of the Trojan War and the modern world collide in this captivating theatrical experience. The setting is simple: the empty theater. The time is now: the present moment. The lone figure onstage is a storyteller - possibly Homer, possibly one of the many bards who followed in his footsteps - fated to tell this story throughout history. Starring Scott Keel with live underscoring by Franklin Keel.
