Love, Loss and What I Wore

by Nora Ephron and Delia Ephron

Directed by Eric Wegener

November 14th through November 22nd, 2014
Grace Performing Arts Center

The dress she wore to senior prom, the heels she wore on that last first date, the purse she carried at her mother's funeral: a woman's life is reflected in the contents of her closet. This funny and powerful play explores the pivotal moments of women's lives and how they become connected to those items that were worn, the ghosts in the closet.

Rounding Third

by Richard Dresser

November 28th through December 6th, 2014
Grace Performing Arts Center

The tumultuous journey of two Little League coaches through an entire season, from their first tentative meeting to the climactic championship game. Don is the tough, blue-collar, win-at-all-costs veteran coach whose son is the star pitcher. Michael is a corporate executive who's new to baseball. Despite their differences, Michael and Don form an uneasy alliance for the benefit of the team. And over the course of exhilarating victories, heartbreaking defeats, and interminable rain-outs, the two men battle over how to lead the team.
