Announcing VTG’s 58th Season

Mothers and Sons

by Terrence McNally
October 15 – November 6, 2021

Directed by Jackie Meara and produced by Rebecca Poole.

The show was on the verge of opening when VTG shut down in March 2020. The original cast remains in place to bring this production to life. “At turns funny and powerful, MOTHERS AND SONS portrays a woman who pays an unexpected visit to the New York apartment of her late son’s partner, who is now married to another man and has a young son. Challenged to face how society has changed around her, generations collide as she revisits the past and begins to see the life her son might have led.” (Dramatists Play Service)

Nice Girl

by Melissa Ross (rights pending)
January 14 – February 5, 2022

Cynthia Katz will be directing, and Renata Allelujka will be producing.

“In suburban Massachusetts in 1984, thirty-seven-year-old Josephine Rosen has a dead-end job, still lives with her mother, and has settled into the uncomfortable comfort of an unintended spinsterhood. But when a chance flirtation with an old classmate and a new friendship at work give her hope for the possibility of change, she dusts off the Jane Fonda tapes and begins to take tentative steps towards a new life. A play about the tragedy and joy of figuring out who you are and letting go of who you were supposed to be.” (Dramatists)

Arsenic and Old Lace

by Joseph Kesselring
March 18 – April 9, 2022

Jim Stahulak will serve as director, and Maggie Fredricks will serve as producer.
 
“We meet the charming and innocent ladies who populate their cellar with the remains of socially and religiously “acceptable” roomers; the antics of their nephew who thinks he is Teddy Roosevelt; and the activities of the other nephew—these require no further description or amplification here. ARSENIC AND OLD LACE is a must for all nonprofessionals, a ready-made comedy hit.” (Dramatists)

Daisy

by Sean Devine
May 20 – June 11, 2022

Terry Kozlowski is directing, and Renata Allelujka is producing.

“It’s the fall of 1964. Bloody turmoil over civil rights is spilling onto the streets. A fearful ideology is growing from the conservative right. The threat of nuclear war is palpable. And a little skirmish in the far-off nation of Vietnam just won’t go away. With a presidential election looming, a group of “ad-men” working for Lyndon Johnson unleash the most devastating political commercial ever conceived, the “Daisy ad.” Based on true events, DAISY explores the moment in television history that launched the age of negative advertising, and forever changed how we elect our leaders. War was the objective. Peace was the bait. Everyone got duped.” (Dramatists)
