M&D Playhouse Presents “Dirt”

M&D Playhouse is pleased to present Dirt, the sixth production in their 2017 series of eleven plays about relationships.  This drama, written by Bruce Gooch, explores the ravages of old age, painful estrangement among family members, and our lifelong connections to home and nature.

The play is best described by Rogue Machine Theater: “When an estranged son returns home and finds his father fighting to hold onto his mind, they are thrust into a struggle to control their land and the memories it holds.  Dirt explores how we forge our identities through our connections to our home, to our past, and to each other.”

Dirt-Poster-663x1024.jpgHere’s what reviewers elsewhere have said about Dirt:

Dirt is an extremely interesting play; a fine work filled with poetic imagery, expressing the grandeur, beauty, and mystery of the circles of life and death, nature, and man’s place in the world.  An estranged son returns home to aid his mentally declining father – a farmer fixated on his land, his need to work, and his identity inseparable from the regular changing seasons and nature’s inevitable flow around him. Dirt…offers a serious contemplation on each of us trudging toward our own end.”   — Review from stagehappenings.com 

“It’s a very primal play about growth and death, the cycles of land and building relationships.”     — Review from dcnews.com

The M&D performance of Dirt is directed by Eric Jordan and will be presented June 22 – July 2, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 PM with matinees Sundays at 4:00 PM at Your Theatre, Willow Common, 1857 White Mountain Highway, North Conway.

Guests can enjoy food and beverages from the theater’s Culture Cafe during the performance.  The Cafe opens 45 minutes prior to the performance with light snacks, coffee, soft drinks, wine, beer and liquors available.

Based on the original Broadway production that ran for 13 years and was nominated for nine Tony Awaards, and the Academy Award-winning motion picture, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, Jr. is a fantastic adaptation of the story of transformation and tolerance.

M&D Playhouse Presents 84 Charing Cross Road

84-charing-cross-roadIt all began with a letter inquiring about second-hand books, written by Helene Hanff in New York, and posted to a bookshop at 84, Charing Cross Road in London. As Helene’s sarcastic and witty letters are responded to by the stodgy and proper Frank Doel of 84, Charing Cross Road, a relationship blossoms into a warm and charming long-distance friendship lasting many years.

M&D Playhouse is pleased to present 84 CHARING CROSS ROAD, the second production in our 2017 series of eleven plays about relationships. The production will be presented February 16- 26, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 PM with Sunday matinees at 4:00 PM at Your Theatre, Willow Common, 1857 White Mountain Highway, North Conway. 

Written by Helene Hanff and adapted for the stage by James Roose-Evans, this wonderful show is a dramatization of business letters between a young struggling writer in New York and an antiquarian book store in London. In a sense, these are also love letters. The play takes place over a twenty year period, beginning in 1949 when Helene Hanff (played on Broadway by Ellen Burstyn) first writes Marks & Co. and ends in 1969 with the death of Frank Doel, the delightfully dusty supplier of so many old volumes to Helen.  This production is directed by Ken Martin.

Enjoy food and beverages from or Culture Café during the performance.  The Café opens 45 minutes prior to the performance with light snacks, coffee, soft drinks, wine, beer and liquors available.
