2019-2020 Meramec Theatre Mainstage Season

Brighton Beach Memoirs

Written by Neil Simon
Directed by Keith Oliver

Performance Dates:

Wednesday, Oct. 2 - Saturday, Oct. 5 at 7:30 p.m.
Sunday, Oct. 6 at 2 p.m.*

*Sunday performances are interpreted for the deaf

Synopsis: Here is part one of Neil Simon's autobiographical trilogy: a portrait of the writer as a young teen in 1937 living with his family in a crowded, lower middle-class Brooklyn walk-up. Eugene Jerome, standing in for the author, is the narrator and central character. Dreaming of baseball and girls, Eugene must cope with the mundane existence of his family life in Brooklyn: formidable mother, overworked father, and his worldly older brother Stanley. Throw into the mix his widowed Aunt Blanche, her two young (but rapidly aging) daughters and you have a recipe for hilarity, served up Simon-style. This bittersweet memoir evocatively captures the life of a struggling Jewish household where, as his father states "if you didn't have a problem, you wouldn't be living here."

FOR MATURE AUDIENCES

Synopsis: Katha and Ryu have become allergic to their 21st-century lives. After they meet a charismatic man from a community of 1950s re-enactors, they forsake cell phones and sushi for cigarettes and Tupperware parties. In this compulsively authentic world, Katha and Ryu are surprised by what their new neighbors - and they themselves - are willing to sacrifice for happiness.

Circle Mirror Transformation

Written by Annie Baker
Directed by Keith Oliver

Performance Dates:

Wednesday, Feb. 12 - Saturday, Feb. 15 at 7:30 p.m.
Sunday, Feb. 16 at 2 p.m.*

*Sunday performances are interpreted for the deaf

Synopsis: When four lost New Englanders who enroll in Marty's six-week-long community-center drama class begin to experiment with harmless games, hearts are quietly torn apart, and tiny wars of epic proportions are waged and won. A beautifully crafted diorama, a petri dish in which we see, with hilarious detail and clarity, the antic sadness of a motley quintet.

Into the Woods

Music & Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Directed by Michelle Rebollo

Performance Dates:

Wednesday, April 15-Saturday, April 18 at 7:30 p.m.

*Sunday performances are interpreted for the deaf

Synopsis: The story follows a Baker and his wife, who wish to have a child; Cinderella, who wishes to attend the King's Festival; and Jack, who wishes his cow would give milk. When the Baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a Witch's curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse. Everyone's wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results.
