Alfie Byrne is a bus driver in 1964 Dublin, whose heart holds secrets he can't share with anyone but his imagined confidante, Oscar Wilde. When he attempts to put on an amateur production of Wilde's Salome in the local church hall, he confronts the forces of bigotry and shame over a love "that dare not speak its name." But the redemptive power of theater changes his life and brings his friends back to his side. PG-13

Winter Term Play

Third Biennial Fred Gaines Student Playwrights Series

Series Director: Timothy X. Troy

Series Dramaturg: Jacque Troy

Three one-act play premieres.
Nineteen, by Olivia Gregorich: Claire Mallory is home for spring break her freshman year of college and she and her mother stop in at her grandmother's house for a card game. Claire has recently revealed that she will be working with a conservation group in Alaska for a six-month internship as part of her studies in marine biology. As this is her first year away from home, her anticipated departure creates tension with her mother, especially when her grandmother's health comes into question.

What's Next? , by Sara Morrison: A husband and wife have prepared to have a drug intervention for their teenage son. Although he is hiding something from them, it is certainly not what they expect, and he may not be the only one with secrets.

The Sky and a Couple of Stars, by Isabel Hemley: Tension grows between Ruth and Leor because they are so sad to be leaving each other on night following their college graduation. This play confronts the questions of why we let go of great things. Why do we feel the need to find something better when we already have something or someone that we love? Why is happy not happy enough?

Spring Term Play


by Romulus Linney (from Peer Gynt, by Henrick Ibsen)

Director: Kathy Privatt

Gint unfolds like a strange dream, beginning with Pete Gint, a ragged young man in the Appalachian Mountains in 1917, who spends most of his time lying, drinking and getting into trouble. Gint is determined to become "something great grand and glorious," but he's not sure just what that is. "GINT" is a celebration and re-creation of Peer Gynt. The play is both utterly faithful to its original and a joy in itself." -The Journal of The Ibsen Society of America. PG-13
