Winner! 2007 Ted Schmitt Award for the world premiere of an Outstanding New Play. Winner! 2008 Ovation Award for Best New Play. Nominee! 2013 Jeff Award, Best Production of a Play
From award-winning writer Jane Anderson (AMC's Mad Men,The Baby Dance, Looking for Normal) comes this "magnetic work of theater" (The San Francisco Chronicle) filled with compassion, honesty and humor. In this play, Dinah and husband Bill, still reeling from the loss of their daughter, find comfort in spirituality. A devout church-going couple from the Midwest, they decide to meet one weekend with distant cousins, who are camped on the burn site of their home that was lost to a wild fire in Northern California. Cousins Jeannette and Neil-who are a wildly irreverent, left-leaning couple, are also facing a devastating loss and dealing with Neil's battle with cancer, a battle he is losing, with healthy doses of red wine, alternative practices and fiercely defiant good cheer. With their widely differing political and religious backgrounds, the couples attempt to join together to confront their physical and emotional challenges as they both deal with grief and survival. "Playwright Jane Anderson explores a myriad of ethical, religious, and moral beliefs, as well as (some would say) personal rights issues concerning life and death in her remarkable and completely engrossing new play, The Quality of Life." - Terri Roberts, Theater Mania

The Dream Makers by Barbara Hockley
November 1-3 Friday & Sat. at 7:30 pm. Sunday at 2:30 Come along where dreams are made in this delightful, fantasy for the whole family
What if our dreams were actually executed by a highly trained group of "dream actors", who work in a place where all our dreams are created. A place that employs all sorts of people to ensure that dreams are created to order, highly skilled actors and technicians who will stretch themselves to the limit to make sure you get an amazing experience in your dream. They keep meticulous notes and are constantly reviewing procedures to ensure a seamless flow of dreams into our sleeping worlds. Doubtless you were unaware of the fact that dreams are created in this way, but that's the way they like it - shrouded in secrecy. The other side to the dream business is the clearing up afterwards (you won't believe how messy dreams are). Somebody has to do it, but who? The dream actors believe it's a magical process (of course), but in reality, there exists a team of 'Grounders' - people who come in after a dream and clear up. Grounders are also highly skilled in their own way, but they have no idea how dreams are created, they just get on with clearing up and performing routine maintenance tasks. That is until Beka (who believes in the mythical tales about dream actors) meets up with a guy named Jude, who has an agenda that permits these two entities to collide. Beka keeps dreaming about Keri, someone she believed was once a friend ... but is she real..... or just a dream? ** Presented by The HATTBox Players, our resident troupe of youth actors.
