Chamber Music is set in 1938 and tells the story of eight famous women from different historical periods who all are interned in the same insane asylum. The women are ï¿½ or at least believe they are ï¿½ author Gertrude Stein, martyr Joan of Arc, activist Susan B. Anthony, politician Queen Isabella of Spain, Constanze Mozart (wife of the famed composer), pilot Amelia Earhart, silent-film actress Pearl White, and explorer Osa Johnson. They have come together to represent the women of the asylum in planning for an attack they believe is soon to come from the men's ward.
Directed by Robert F. Cole, Chamber Music features Omar Abdali, Victoria Boomsma, Margie Catov, Petra Kipke, Judy Merrick, Julianne Nelson, Dan Snow, Laura Spaeth, Luanne Surace and Kim Vasquez.
The Day The Whores Came Out To Play Tennis: an invasion of off-stage farting whores outrages the Tennis Club members who bicker while the set collapses around them.
Directed by John Scheffler, The Day The Whores Came Out To Play Tennis features Robert F. Cole, Bill Krakauer, Thomas S. Nielsen, Paul Pricer, Jonathan Pereira and Zachary Zito.
The creative team for Chamber Music/The Day The Whores Came Out To Play Tennis comprises John Scheffler (sets), Vesna Stajic (costumes), Victoria Cernos-kiely (lighting) and Mick Oï¿½Brien (sound).
