    The King's Town Players Announce the 2015-2016 Season

    BUG

    Written by Tracy Letts
    Directed by Krista Garrett

    2015 01 Bug IconKing’s Town Players are proud to present the Kingston premiere of this powerful Tony and Pulitzer winning tragi-comedy that is sure to move you.

    This gloriously paranoid rollercoaster of a play has shades of William Burroughs, with a dash of David Cronenberg and perhaps just a twist of David Lynch’s Wild At Heart.

    It tells the story of the relationship between Peter and Agnes as they hold up in Agnes’s motel room and cope with a growing bug infestation, a violently abusive ex-husband, and a figure from Peter’s past who threatens to destroy the delicate fabric of the reality they have woven around themselves.

    Performance Dates: October 14-17, 21-24

     

     

    THE LION, THE WITCH, AND THE WARDROBE

    Written by Joseph Robinette
    Adapted from the novel by C.S. Lewis
    Directed by Clayton Garrett

    2015 02 TLTWTW IconImagine a world that is in the middle of winter, waiting for spring. Imagine a world torn by war. It’s not hard to do. Now, imagine that world with talking fauns, unicorns, centaurs and nymphs. This world is Narnia.

    This dramatization faithfully recreates the magic and mystery of Aslan, the great lion, his struggle with the White Witch, and the adventures of four children who inadvertently wander from an old wardrobe into the exciting, never-to-be-forgotten Narnia. The intense action features chases, duels and escapes as the witch is determined to keep Narnia in her possession and to end the reign of Aslan.

    Performance Dates: November 25-28, December 2-5

     

     

     

    BACHELORETTE

    Written by Leslye Headland
    Directed by Rachael McDonald

    2016 03 B IconTen years out of high school, Regan, Gena and Katie convene in the luxurious bridal suite of their old friend, Becky, the night before her wedding in New York City. Fueled by jealousy and resentment, the girls embark on a night of debauchery that goes from playfully wasted to devastatingly destructive. Their old fears, unfulfilled desires and deep bonds with each other transform a prenuptial bender into a night they’ll never forget. A wicked black comedy about female friendship and growing up in an age of excess.

    Performance Dates: January 20-23, 27-30, 2016
