Out Of Pocket Productions presents: Grace

BuyTickets_240px-no-feeby Craig Wright
Director Jeff Siuda

Description:

Grace is a tragicomedy that explores human assumptions about how God, goodness, faith and causality operate in the cosmic machinery. Steve and Sara have relocated to Sunrise, Florida to pursue an unbelievably wonderful business deal, but as the deal slowly unravels and Steve finds himself afflicted with an itch that just won’t stop, Sara finds herself increasingly drawn to their next-door neighbor, Sam, a badly-scarred victim of a recent car accident who wants nothing to do with her or her Bible-quoting husband. In the end, with a little help from an old German exterminator who’s still angry about the Allied bombing of Hamburg in World War II, all three characters are confronted by a world that’s both better and worse than any religion can justify.

Classics Theater of Rochester continues its SHAW series at MuCCC in August, 2015, with the very popular comedy, “Candida”. After staging George Bernard Shaw’s “Plays Unpleasant” (Widowers’ Houses, Mrs. Warren’s Profession and The Philanderer) the past three seasons, Rochester’s only Shaw troupe now turns its sights to Shaw’s “Plays Pleasant”.

candida-banner-yellowIn “Candida”, Shaw presents a minister’s wife compelled to choose between her staid husband, the Rev. James Morell, and a mysterious young suitor, Eugene Marchbanks. A scoundrel of a father-in-law, a fawning intern and a conflicted secretary add to the comedy and Shaw takes ample opportunity for social commentary, as always, challenging Victorian standards, especially those involving marriage.

Performances are scheduled for August 14, 15, 20, 21 and 22 at 8PM and August 16 at 2PM.

$15, student $12.
