Medea Redux is a tragic tale in which a woman recounts her relationship with a jr. high school teacher and the lengths she finally goes to in order to exact revenge.

This play contains mature themes and language.

Nancy Crouse stars in Driving Miss Daisy
Hawthorne Players will present Alfred Uhry’s Pulitzer prize-winning play Driving Miss Daisy on November 4, 5, 11, 12 at 7:30 pm and on November 13 at 2:00 pm at the Florissant Civic Center Theatre.  Tickets are $18 for adults, $16 for seniors/students and may be purchased by calling the Box Office at (314) 921-5678 or online at www.florissantmo.com.

The play is a warm-hearted, humorous, and moving study of the unlikely relationship between an aging, crotchety, white Southern lady, and a proud, soft-spoken African-American man. The pairing of the two begins when Daisy, a sharp-tongued Jewish widow, after one too many accidents, is forced to rely on the services of a chauffeur. The audience follows the two over a span of 25 years as they, despite their mutual differences, grow ever closer to, and more dependent upon, each other.

THE MIDNIGHT COMPANY TO REVIVE TWO ACCLAIMED

CONOR McPHERSON PLAYS IN JULY AT HERBIE’S

The Midnight Company will revive two of its most acclaimed productions when they present Conor McPherson’s ST NICHOLAS and THE GOOD THIEF, to be performed in repertory, July 10-26, at Herbie’s Vintage 72 in the Central West End.  Tickets will be available throughbrownpapertickets.com.

 The two one-man shows will be performed by Joe Hanrahan and directed by Sarah Whitney.  ST NICHOLAS is the haunting tale of a Dublin theatre critic, sick of theatre and life, who becomes obsessed with a young actress and follows her to London.  There he is taken in by a band of vampires, who use him to bring young people to visit the vampires at their nightly parties.  The Riverfront Times called it “ “unconventional, invigorating, enthralling,” also “very funny.”  THE GOOD THIEF is the tough-as-nails story of a small-time Irish thug, in over his head and betrayed by his boss, chased by the police and the mob, with a woman and her young daughter in tow, running for their lives.  KDHX called it “riveting,” and The RFT noted its “power and brilliance.”  Hanrahan and Whitney first presented ST NICHOLAS in 2004, playing at McGurk’s Pub, Balaban’s (now Herbie’s) and Carrie Houk’s HH Studio, and THE GOOD THIEF in 2008 at Dressel’s Pub.

 McPherson, Dublin-born, is also the playwright of THE WEIR (Olivier Award), SHINING CITY (Tony, best play), THE SEAFARER and THE NIGHT ALIVE (NY Drama Critics Circle, best play).  He has written and directed several films. The Midnight Company recently presented SEX, DRUGS, ROCK & ROLL at Herbie’s, and Daniel MacIvor’s HOUSE as part of The 2015 St. Louis Fringe Festival.  Hanrahan will also be appearing in Slightly Askew’s ONE FLEA SPARE, August 19-29.  Two films he appeared in – Patrick Mahoney’s CHASING HOPE and Taylor Bevirt’s THE LAST JOB will be screened at the 2015 St. Louis Filmmakers Showcase in July.

 Performances for the McPherson plays will be as follows:

ST NICHOLAS  Friday, July 10   Saturday, July 18   Friday, July 24   8pm

Sunday, July 12    Sunday, July 26   6:30pm
