A Modern Comedy by Beth Henley

Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m., Sundays June 24 and July 1 at 2:30 p.m.

Twenty years ago, just about the same time as Doug and Susan Balentine were founding Playhouse 2000, Texas native and Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Beth Henley premiered a modern take on Drawing Room Comedy – the type made famous by Wilde and Coward.  The result is a 21st-Century comedy of manners that explores of the foibles of modern marriage among the polite class.  It’s sophisticated comedy for a smart audience.

Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m., Sunday August 26 and Sept 2 at 2:30 p.m.

Playwright Mark Dunn, creator of the popular comedy Five Tellers Dancing in the Rain, has penned a brand new Southern Comedy that he describes as “Steel Magnolias meets Survivor.”  The women of The Glitter Girls club are about to inherit a boatload of money – or at least one of them will.  It’s up to them to decide among themselves who the lucky girl (or guy) will be.  Laughs will fill the air all night long – you should be here!

Witness for the Prosecution

A Thriller by Agatha Christie

October 19 – November 4, 2018 – VK Garage Theater

Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m., Sunday October 28 and Nov 4 at 2:30 p.m.

In one of her best known thrillers, Mrs. Christie creates a courtroom drama in which a possibly innocent man’s life hangs in the balance – a balance that’s upended by a mysterious woman with a scarred face.  Even when you think you’ve got it figured out, there are plot twists still to be unraveled.  A masterpiece of tension, misdirection and ultimate justice that even the real courts could not provide.
