THEATRE: Princess, a new play by Sky Gilbert, Nov 17 to 27

Comments Off on THEATRE: Princess, a new play by Sky Gilbert, Nov 17 to 27

anna-chatterton_cThurs-Sun Nov 17-20 and Thurs-Sun Nov 24-27, 2016. Thurs-Sat at 8 pm $15, Sun mats 2 pm pwyc. Princess, a Hammertheatre Production, is a new one-act play written and directed by Sky Gilbert. It stars Anna Chatterton (writer/performer in Quiver at Theatre Aquarius Studio) as Mary Beth, and Ralph Small as her father. A young woman meets her dad in a little cafe. We learn that she has cancer, and that her father neglected her is a child. But is that all the truth? Or are there other truths? As the confrontation grows deeper we learn some troubling things about the young woman, and we also learn that things are not quite what they seem. Mary Beth is an extreme young woman, but maybe her obsessions are not that different from someone you know. Not every little girl can be a princess, and not every little girl can be perfectly happy. Can you come to terms with that? With life?
The show runs 60 mins.
LATE SHOW, after Princess: On Saturday Nov. 26 at 9:30 pm, Brazilian Bossa Nova with vocalist Angela Turone, and guitarist Chris Platt.
