Red Barn Players 2017 Season

 
Not Now, Darling June 2-3, 8-10, 15-17
Directed by:  Nancy Batko Written by: Ray Cooney & John Chapman
The scene is the exclusive London fur salon of Bodley and Crouch, where Crouch (the well-meaning innocent) struggles to keep things on an even keel despite the energetic philandering of his partner.  Suspicious wives, mistaken identities, scantily clad girls clapped hurriedly into closets and a continuous barrage of rapid fire jokes all become part of the hilarious doings, as the action of the play bubbles along merrily right up to the final curtain when, miraculously and to the great relief of all concerned, everything somehow manages to work out as it should.

 

Jesus Christ Superstar July 7-8, 13-15, 20-22
Directed by: Jessica Patterson Music by: Andrew Lloyd Webber
Lyrics by: Tim Rice
The 1970's rock opera  loosely based on the Gospels' accounts of the last week of Jesus's life, beginning with the preparation for the arrival of Jesus and his disciples in Jerusalem and ending with the crucifixion. It highlights political and interpersonal struggles between Judas Iscariot and Jesus that are not present in the Bible narratives.

 

Beer for Breakfast August 11-12, 17-19, 24-26
Directed by: Tom Licker Written by: Sean Grennan
A group of middle-aged buddies reunite for a "guys' weekend" in a snowed-in cabin to eat chili, drink beer, and relive the good old days. Despite divorce, unemployment, and a stroke, spirits are high until Jessie, the wife of absent friend Adrian, shows up in his place. An epic battle of wits and stamina ensues: will the men win their right to an all-out guy fest, or will woman be crowned the stronger sex after all?

 

Hilda's Yard September 15-16, 21-23, 28-30
Directed by: Shelly Cary Written by: Norm Foster
It’s 1956, and Sam and Hilda have finally begun to enjoy a peaceful life. But their blissful nights in front of the television (and a little hanky-panky) are cut short when their unemployed son and their newly single daughter return for an uninvited (and lengthy) stay.

Niceties begin to fall by the wayside as strong-wills and traditional values face-off against the traumatized and spoiled attitudes of youth. Soon, the delightfully hilarious battle between generations of the “Fluck” family begin to show a deeper story of love, work ethic, mental health, and domestic struggle.
