One Blue Tarp
By Travis Baker January 30-February 16, 2014
The ubiquitous blue tarp provides the backdrop for this comic play about a Maine native defending his right to do as he's always done and a woman "from away" who wants to change things and knows just how to do it. This lighthearted examination of home, place, progress, and the way life "should" be was first written and developed for PTC's 2010 Northern Writes New Play Festival; named Best Play for the State of Maine in the 2013 Clauder New England Playwright Competition. WORLD PREMIER!
God of Carnage
By Yasmina Reza Translated by Christopher Hampton
March 13-30, 2014
A comedy of manners, without the manners! When little Benjamin whacks his playmate Henry with a stick, breaking two teeth, it is important that the boys' parents set the right example by discussing the matter calmly and reasonably. After all, nothing will be gained by behaving like children. But the thin veneer of civility is stripped away with corrosive wit, revealing the savage underbelly of playground politics. TONY AWARD WINNER! Strong language.
By Thornton Wilder
April 24-May 11, 2014
This beloved tale follows young lovers George and Emily, whose lives in a small New England town become a microcosm of everyday life. The wisdom of the play, rendered through a deceptively simple story, makes Our Town an enduring treasure of the American theatre. Penobscot Theatre will deliver an Our Town for our time, starring Monica Willey and featuring original music composed and performed nightly by musician Jacob Augustine. PULITZER PRIZE WINNER!
