Pathway To Freedom is an exciting account of the struggles and heroism in the 1840's and 1850's, along the Underground Railroad from North Carolina to Indiana. Both individuals as well as some of the organized religions fought slavery in the legislature and on the farms; while others, like Levi and Katie Coffin of Guilford County, led volunteers and free slaves in clandestine efforts to help escaping slaves to freedom. The play centers on George Vestal, son of a slave owning family, and how and why he became a worker for the Underground Railroad. Events trace the actions of slave families in their hope of gaining freedom and dignity. A story of conflict, action, and support of human dignity, this play urges us to work for what ought to be. It is a play about family courage. It helps to explain our past and shines a bright light into our future. Written by: Mark R. Sumner Music by: Ann Hunt Smith

A Trivial Comedy for Serious People is a play by Oscar Wilde. First performed on 14 February 1895 at the St James's Theatre in London, it is a farcical comedy in which the protagonists maintain fictitious personae to escape burdensome social obligations. Working within the social conventions of late Victorian London, the play's major themes are the triviality with which it treats institutions as serious as marriage, and the resulting satire of Victorian ways. Contemporary reviews all praised the play's humour, though some were cautious about its explicit lack of social messages, while others foresaw the modern consensus that it was the culmination of Wilde's artistic career so far. Its high farce and witty dialogue have helped make The Importance of Being Earnest Wilde's most enduringly popular play.

Steve Martin’s “Picasso at the Lapin Agile”

August 11, 2017
Start Date:

August 13, 2017
End Date:

Friday & Saturday: 7:30pm; Sunday: 2:30pm
Time:

$13
Admission:

The play features the characters of Albert Einstein and Pablo Picasso, who meet at a bar called the Lapin Agile (French: "Nimble Rabbit") in Montmartre, Paris. It is set on October 8, 1904, and both men are on the verge of disclosing amazing ideas (Einstein will publish his special theory of relativity in 1905 and Picasso will paint Les Demoiselles d'Avignon in 1907). At the Lapin Agile, they have a lengthy debate about the value of genius and talent, while interacting with a host of other characters. Each character in Lapin Agile has a specific role. For example, Schmendiman, an inventor, believes he is a genius but really knows very little, while Gaston, an amicable old Frenchman with prostate problems, is hesitant to listen to or believe anything that does not revolve around sex or drinking. There is much discussion of the major cultural influences of the twentieth century. Picasso represents art, Einstein represents science, and Schmendiman represents commercialism. Picasso and Einstein eventually realize that their abilities are equally valuable. Once the main characters have reached their moment of insight, "The Visitor", a man from the future, crashes the party. Although the Visitor is never named, his identity can be surmised as Elvis Presley. The Visitor adds a third dimension to Picasso's and Einstein's debate, representing the idea that genius is not always the product of academic or philosophical understanding, or as Gaston refers to it, "Brains". Martin has written: "Focusing on Einsteins Special Theory of Relativity and Picassos master painting, Les Demoiselles d'Avignon, the play attempts to explain, in a light-hearted way, the similarity of the creative process involved in great leaps of imagination in art and science".

Pathway To Freedom is an exciting account of the struggles and heroism in the 1840's and 1850's, along the Underground Railroad from North Carolina to Indiana. Both individuals as well as some of the organized religions fought slavery in the legislature and on the farms; while others, like Levi and Katie Coffin of Guilford County, led volunteers and free slaves in clandestine efforts to help escaping slaves to freedom. The play centers on George Vestal, son of a slave owning family, and how and why he became a worker for the Underground Railroad. Events trace the actions of slave families in their hope of gaining freedom and dignity. A story of conflict, action, and support of human dignity, this play urges us to work for what ought to be. It is a play about family courage. It helps to explain our past and shines a bright light into our future. Written by: Mark R. Sumner Music by: Ann Hunt Smith
