This isn’t your grandmother’s Austen! Bold, surprising, boisterous, and timely, this Pride & Prejudice for a new era explores the absurdities and thrills of finding your perfect (or imperfect) match in life. The outspoken Lizzy Bennet is determined to never marry, despite mounting pressure from society. But can she resist love, especially when that vaguely handsome, mildly amusing, and impossibly aggravating Mr. Darcy keeps popping up at every turn?! Literature’s greatest tale of latent love has never felt so theatrical, or so full of life than it does in this effervescent adaptation. Because what turns us into greater fools…than the high-stakes game of love?

Ex-spouses Paul and Polly Butler write murder mysteries together.

Nobody gets hurt, but their egos take some hits as they find that their marriage was mixed up with their work. There are many fast paced comic twists as they attempt to outdo and surprise each other and they learn that marriage, like murder, is in the details.

He and his servant Aglietiello are avid gamblers but they never win anything. Meanwhile, one of his employees, Mario Bertolini, often wins and even manages to win 4 million lira, an astronomical figure for those times, with numbers received in a dream from Ferdinando's deceased father. This prompts Ferdinando to deny Mario his prize with a defiant "I won't pay you".

November/December Season – Man From Earth

Written by: Jerome Bixby
Production Dates: 24/11/2023 – 09/12/2023
Directed by: Virginia Moore-Price

After history professor John Oldman unexpectedly resigns from the University, his startled colleagues impulsively invite themselves to his home, pressing him for an explanation. But they're shocked to hear his reason for premature retirement: John claims he must move on because he is immortal, and cannot stay in one place for more than ten years without his secret being discovered.

Tempers rise and emotions flow as John's fellow professors attempt to poke holes in his story, but it soon becomes clear that his tale is as impossible to disprove as it is to verify. What starts out as a friendly gathering soon builds to an unexpected and shattering climax.

Acclaimed science fiction writer Jerome Bixby, writer of the original Star Trek and The Twilight Zone, originally conceived this story back in the early 1960's. It would come to be his last great work.
