Feb 5-7, 11-13

This classic play is an emotional roller coaster between George, a college history professor and his wife Martha, daughter of the college president, and Nick, a new professor in the biology department and his wife, Honey. Illusion and reality are nebulous and never clear. 

The morals and mores of the 1950s, wherein families consisted of husband, wife and two perfect children living in the suburbs, is questioned and exposed. Alcohol is used to self-medicate, and the mental stability of all of them is in question.


George - Bill Keeton

Martha - Julie Poux

Nick - Michael Gettinger

Honey - Kiya Fix
