‘Four Old Broads’ at Centre Stage @ Center Stage
Sep 19 @ 8:00 pm

Four Old Broads
Directed by Ruth Wood
Written by Leslie Kimbell

September 12-23 Tues. – Sat. 8pm Sat. Matinee 2pm Sun. Matinee 3pm

“Winner of the 2016 New Play Festival!”

Retired Burlesque queen Beatrice Shelton desperately needs a vacation – and NOT another trip up to Helen, Georgia to see that “precious little German village for the umpteenth time.” A Sassy Seniors Cruise through the Caribbean may be just the ticket if she can just convince her best friend Eaddy Mae Clayton to stop praying and go with her. Unfortunately, things have not been very pleasant at Magnolia Place Assisted Living since Nurse Pat Jones began working there. Newest resident Imogene Fletcher is suddenly losing her memory. Maude Jenkins is obsessed with her favorite soap opera and planning her own funeral. Sam Smith, retired Elvis impersonator, keeps trying to bed every woman in the building. A mystery unfolds with laughter as the gals try to outsmart evil nurse Pat Jones and figure out why so many residents have been moved to “the dark side”, what exactly IS that mysterious pill and what happened to Doctor Head? Hilarity ensues as Imogene goes undercover and Maude enters the Miss Magnolia Senior Citizen pageant to throw Pat off their trail. If they can solve the mystery, they may make it to the cruise ship after all.
This world premier Southern comedy was the winner of the 2016 New Play Festival at Centre Stage and is directed by Ruth Wood. Four Old Broads will also kick off our 2017 New Play Festival with a free performance on Sunday, September 24th at 7pm.

Can Detective Trotter solve the mystery before the killer makes their next move?

‘Radium Girls’ at Logos Theatre @ Academy of Arts - The Logos Theatre
Sep 22 @ 7:00 pm

In 1926, radium was a miracle cure, Madame Curie an international celebrity, and luminous watches the latest
rage until the girls who painted them began to fall ill with a mysterious disease. Inspired by a true story, Radium
Girls traces the efforts of Grace Fryer, a dial painter, as she fights for her day in court. Her chief adversary is
her former employer, Arthur Roeder, an idealistic man who cannot bring himself to believe that the same
element that shrinks tumors could have anything to do with the terrifying rash of illnesses among his
employees. As the case goes on, however, Grace finds herself battling not just with the U.S. Radium
Corporation, but with her own family and friends, who fear that her campaign for justice will backfire.
