Fall: Spinning Into Butter
Sobrato Theatre's Shortino Stage ~ October 27 - 29 and November 2 - 4, 2017

Presented in conjunction with BCP's Summit on Human Dignity and Social Justice, Rebecca Gilman's play mirrors the self-reflective challenges of our school's year-long examination of race. At a small liberal-arts college in Vermont, a series of hate crimes sparks an unavoidable discussion about overt, covert, and even unconscious racial discrimination. The crisis forces Dean of Students Sarah Daniels to confront individual and institutional racism that hit more than close to home. Each performance will culminate in an audience discussion.

Spring: Assistance
Assistance Poster 1.png

Black Box Theatre ~ May 11 - 13; 17 - 19

In Leslye Headland's comedy-drama Assistance, life is an endless series of humiliations for a team of young assistants working for a high-powered mogul. In rare moments of calm when the phone calls stop rolling, Nick and Nora and their traumatized co-workers question the choices that led them - and keep them - there. This biting, high-octane satire reflects on the pitfalls of a cult of personality, toxic workplaces, and what an individual is willing to sacrifice to serve ambition and greed. From the writer-director of the film Bachelorette.

"...the theatrical equivalent of a triple-shot espresso, bristling with propulsive nerviness and high style ...ferociously funny." ~ LA Times

This play includes some intense language that may not be suitable for those under the age of 13 (i.e., it includes language equivalent to that allowed in a PG-13 film). Parental guidance is suggested.
