Dramatic Repertory Company (Keith Powell Beyland, Artistic Director) proudly announces its 2019/2020 Season of three Maine Premiere / World Premiere productions.
NOVEMBER 8 - 17, 2019
by Duncan Macmillan
with Rob Cameron & Phoebe Parker
directed by Keith Powell Beyland
The world is getting hotter, there's unrest overseas, the seas themselves aren't very calm and one couple is thinking about having a child. LUNGS is a smart and funny drama that follows a couple through the surprising lifecycle of their relationship as they grapple with questions of family and change, hope, betrayal, happenstance, and the terrible pain that you can only cause the people you love.
MARCH 6 - 15, 2020
by Lynne Conner
directed by Lisa Muller-Jones
with Nolan Ellsworth, Mary Fraser, Robbie Harrison,
Abigail Killeen, Michaela Mikalizio,
David Pence and Molly W. Bryant Roberts.
DRC will produce the World Premiere of Lynne Conner's most recent play THE MOTHER, a thought-provoking and heartbreaking exploration of what happens to a family in the wake of a school shooting perpetrating by their son.
With a non-linear timeline, highly-theatrical characterization (The Mother is played by two actors, one before the shooting and one after, who often speak to each other), and a seven-member cast, many of whom play multiple roles, the play reveals some of the less-talked about aspects of our national tragedy of mass shooting - the roles of suicide, the concept of aggrieved masculinity, and who the public condemns/blames for such acts of violence. Conner's play asks questions and provides few answers, so that the audience is invited to struggle along with the characters in trying to understand why school shootings occur and what, if any meaning, we can discover in them.
