Directed by Maddie Warner (COL '21) and company members

Produced by Cory Kleinman (COL '21)

Stage Managed by Angela Nguyen (COL '24)

This weekly/alternating weekly radio drama will be told by various voice actors over the course of six to eight weeks. Though The Importance of Being Earnest is the current focus, additional student-written scripts may be pursued so be sure to keep checking back for more.

On The Importance of Being Earnest: "Jack wishes to marry Algernon’s cousin the beautiful Gwendolen but first he must convince her mother, the fearsome Lady Bracknell, of the respectability of his parents and his past. For Jack, however, this is not as easy as it sounds, having started life abandoned in a handbag at Victoria station. Prepare to take a welcome turn with Wilde’s much-loved Algernon, Jack, Gwendolen and Cecily, as town and country clash in a brilliant and wildly funny story of romance, identity, perambulators and capacious handbags." - The Original Theatre Company

Love and Information

by Caryl Churchill

“Someone sneezes. Someone can’t get a signal. Someone won’t answer the door. Someone put an elephant on the stairs. Someone’s not ready to talk. Someone is her brother’s mother. Someone hates irrational numbers. Someone told the police. Someone got a message from the traffic light. Someone’s never felt like this before. In this fast-moving kaleidoscope, more than a hundred characters try to make sense of what they know.”  - Concord Theatrics

The Bus Stop

Directed by Amy Li (COL '22)

Produced by Ashanee Kottage (SFS '22)

Stage Managed by Joseph Ravago (COL '23)

Technical Direction by Kennedy Burroughs (SFS '23)

by Gao Xingjian

translated by Shiao-Ling Yu

At the bus stop, there is nothing to do but wait. One Saturday afternoon a silent man, and old man, a girl, a hothead, a student, a mother, a carpenter, and Director Ma all wait for the bus to go into the city. While they wait they philosophize, they argue, and they goof off to pass the time. So, time passes and they wait.

Nobel Laureate Gao Xingjian delivers a poetic examination of Chinese society in Shiao-Ling Yu's translation of this 1981 absurdist play. At time humorous, dramatic, and disharmonious, The Bus Stop invites its audiences to explore themes of translation, systems and institutions, and self-identity.

Important Notice:

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are sad to announce that we have postponed this co-production with TPST to next fall 2021. Please click here to read a note from our director, Matthew Phillips (COL'23), regarding his thoughts on this decision and his desire to stay committed to the project.

“In a Berlin nightclub, as the 1920's draw to a close, a garish Master of Ceremonies welcomes the audience and assures them they will forget all their troubles at the Cabaret. With the Emcee's bawdy songs as wry commentary, Cabaret explores the dark, heady, and tumultuous life of Berlin's natives and expatriates as Germany slowly yields to the emerging Third Reich. Cliff, a young American writer newly arrived in Berlin, is immediately taken with English singer Sally Bowles. Meanwhile, Fräulein Schneider, proprietor of Cliff and Sally's boarding house, tentatively begins a romance with Herr Schultz, a mild-mannered fruit seller who happens to be Jewish. Musical numbers include "Willkommen," "Cabaret," "Don't Tell Mama" and "Two Ladies.” - Concord Theatrics
