It’s the dead of winter, and the summer vacation getaway of Long Beach Island, New Jersey is desolate and blanketed in snow. Charlie is 35, heartbroken, and just wants some time away from the rest of the world. The island ghost-town seems to be the perfect escape until his solitude is interrupted by a motley parade of misfits who show up and change his plans. A hired beauty, the townie fireman, and an eccentric British real-estate agent desperately trying to stay in the country suddenly find themselves tangled together in a beach house where the mood is anything but sunny.
Abandoned by her husband, Medea struggles to save herself and her two sons from exile and, in result, the shaming of her and her family’s name. Blinded by grief and heart-break, she plans a bloody revenge on Jason which she carries out with almost merciless determination. Medea is a story that still remains disturbingly modern and familiar for its readers and audiences. Its questioning and discussion of the eternal problems linked of revenge, family, gender and fate, Medea remains as relevant to its modern audiences as it did thousands of years ago in Ancient Greece, leaving us questioning the real speed of development in our world.
42 is a warm-hearted, fast-paced, and mostly silly take on the tale of Arthur, the only Earthling left in the whole Galaxy. Simultaneously, it might answer one of the most asked question: ‘What is the meaning of life?’
Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice is often regarded as the most controversial play The Bard has ever written. This is not peculiar: the tale of Italian merchant Antonio who signs a contract with the Jewish Shylock is riddled with antisemitic motives and questions the morality of the law. The Groningen University Theatre Society (GUTS) brings The Merchant of Venice to the Groninger stage in an authentic and completely English rendition.
Times are tough in a Chicago based real estate office. The salesman are involved in a little sales competition. First prize: a Cadillac, second prize: a set of steak knives, third: the sack. There is no room for losers in this dramatically masculine world, only “closers”.
This play is what David Mamet is all about: language. Beautiful written words that perfectly show the anxiety and hostility that goes with the job of a salesman. Four people are competing to become alpha dog and this toxic business culture corrupts the office from within.
