Let Miss Abigail take you back to a simpler time, before booty calls and speed-dating, back when the divorce rate wasn’t 50% and when ‘fidelity’ was more than an investment firm!

The audience participates in this hilarious variety show, and Miss Abigail’s strapping young assistant, Paco, is there to provide for her every need. This smash off-Broadway hit will keep you laughing all night long – that’s the Miss Abigail guarantee! “Big laughs!” –Associated Press; “Truly a Can’t Miss!” –Harper’s Bazaar

It's the last meeting of the First Tuesday Book Club (which meets on Thursday!) and Allison, Mia, Fran, Louise, and Janice are all anxiously awaiting the arrival
of their celebrity guest. Janice is determined to make a good impression despite the fact she hasn't read the book. Louise is thrilled at the idea of being in the same
room as Oprah. Allison, however, is not convinced that Oprah's arrival will do anything but disrupt the meeting. Mia, arriving late as usual, is simply delighted
that she hasn't missed anything yet! And Fran is just waiting for a miracle to change the course of her entire life.

​Always a Bridesmaid 

by Jones, Hope, and Wooten

August 9, 10, 16, 17, 23, 24, 30, 31 and September 6, 7, 2014

In this hilarious comedic romp, four friends have sworn to keep the promise they made on the night of their Senior Prom: to be in each other's weddings…no matter what. More than thirty years later, these Southern friends-for-life are still making "the long walk" for each other, determined to honor that vow. Forsaking all others, in sickness and in health, they repeatedly struggle to stage the perfect wedding in spite of fistfights at the altar, runaway brides and the mistaken, and unfortunate, release of a flock of white doves on the first day of hunting season.

A playground altercation between eleven-year-old boys brings together two sets of parents for a meeting to resolve the matter. At first, diplomatic niceties are observed, but as the meeting progresses, and the rum flows, tensions emerge and the gloves come off, leaving the couples with more

than just their liberal principles in tatters. Winner of the 2009 Tony Award

September 2, 3, 2014 Location TBA
"The Interview" by David Mamet and "Hotline" by Elaine May

“The Interview” by David Mamet is a look at an attorney interviewing his client with a twist…they are in hell and the consequences are hilarious. It makes one think about the reality of an attorney meeting with a client in the real world and how often we find the whole experience unnerving. So maybe some of those experiences are rooted in hell on earth.

“Hotline” by Elaine May is a black comedy that looks at the absurd side of a suicide hotline when things go awry. Although, nothing on the surface is funny about suicide, when Elaine May turns the subject on its head, the humor of the human condition comes through in flying colors. Just what happens when a hotline doesn’t work properly will have you questioning how we as a society have gone about setting up these institutions and the competency of the employees who handle each crisis.
