The women of the Radium Dial factory made a good a living hand-painting the faces of clocks and watches. Until their work started making them sick.

Zelda Fitzgerald was much more than her husband’s muse. She was an artist in her own right. Join us for an evening in the Fitzgerald home, as F. Scott pleads to have his struggling wife committed. Does the creative liberty and wellbeing of Zelda outweigh the fame and continuation of her husbands work?

October 28th and 29th performances will be presented both in person and via ticketed live stream.

The Play That Goes Wrong

by Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer, and Henry Shields

April 26-29, 2023 7:30 p.m.
April 30, 2023 2:00 p.m. 

The Cornley University Drama Society takes over our stage with their performance of the 1920’s whodunnit The Murder at Haversham Manor. For this inept troupe of thespians, each moment ushers in a new catastrophe – broken props, missed lines, and even an unconscious leading lady! Luckily for us, their slapstick struggle to overcome and get the play back on track is utterly hysterical. Prepare for one of the funniest nights you’ll ever have at the theatre!
