Reasons to be Pretty
by Neil Labute
directed by Jay Oney
September 26-30 at 8pm
Matinees September 30 & October 1 at 3pm

A hopelessly romantic drama about the hopelessness of romance, Reasons to Be Pretty is the first installment (followed by Reasons to Be Happy and Reasons to Be Pretty Happy) in Neil LaBute’s trilogy focusing on two young couples whose lives and careers become very, very entangled. When an off-handed remark disrupts the lives of Greg and Steph, they, and their sometime friends, Carly and Kent, confront self-deceit, treachery, and their own willingness to change. Reasons to Be Pretty has the razor-sharp wit and insight we expect from LaBute, but with an extraordinary new twist – hope!

‘Clybourne Park’ at The Warehouse Theatre @ Warehouse Theatre

'Clybourne Park' at The Warehouse Theatre @ Warehouse Theatre

The Warehouse Theatre opens its 44th Main Stage Season with the Bruce Norris-penned, Clybourne Park. The Pulitzer Prize-winner, based around Lorraine Hansberry’s classic, A Raisin in the Sun, will place gentrification, race, and marital tensions firmly in its cross-hairs.

Jay Briggs, Director of Education at Mill Town Players, is directing the play following his success last year with Warehouse’s Important Hats of the Twentieth Century.

Clybourne Park’s first act is set in 1959 where Russ and Bev are selling their two-bedroom at a bargain price, unknowingly to the first black family in the neighborhood, creating discontent among the white residents of Clybourne Park.

In 2009 (Act II), the same property is being bought by a young white couple, whose plan to raze the house and start again is met with equal disapproval by the black residents of the soon-to-be-gentrified area. Are the issues the same, fifty years on? Bruce Norris’s excruciatingly funny and squirm-inducing satire explores the fault line between race and property.

The show features Miranda Barnett, J. Richey Nash, Brock Koonce, Shea Stephens, Jennifer Webb, Malikah McHerrin-Cobb, and Jaryl Draper.

Tickets are $30 for General Admission and $35 for Reserved Seating. The September 22, 23, 28, 29, 30 and October 5, 6, 7 performances will be at 8:00pm. The September 24 and October 1 and 8 performances will be at 3:00pm. Tickets can be purchased at www.WarehouseTheatre.com or by calling 864-235-6948.

The Warehouse’s usual discount ticketing programs apply for this show with I Pay What I Can on Sunday, September 24th at 3:00pm and Blue Star Theatre discounts for veterans and active military applying throughout the run.

‘The Mousetrap’ at the Greenville Little Theatre @ Greenville Little Theatre
Sep 28 @ 8:00 pm

Running continously for over 60 years at the St. Martin’s Theatre in London, The Mousetrap is the world’s longest running play with well over 25,000 performances to date. One of Dame Christie’s finest “whodunit” mysteries, the scene is set when a group of seven strangers are stranded in a boarding house during a snow storm: one of them is a murder and one is their victim. The suspects include the newly married couple who run the house, a spinster with a curious background, a quirky architect, a retired Army Major, a pecicular motorist, and a miserable judge. Can Detective Trotter solve the mystery before the killer makes their next move?

Directed by Sam McCalla, this cast includes Carter Allen, Luke Brooks, Catherine Christophillis, Emily Grove, Evan Harris, Latreshia Lilly, Robert Simms, and Craig Smith.
