About the Shows

 

FOR WHOM THE SOUTHERN BELLE TOLLS
Written by Christopher Durang
Directed by David Britt

and

WANDA'S VISIT
Written by Christopher Durang
Directed by Logan Davies

Run Dates: October 14-17, 2018
Lab Theatre

Get a double dose of the acerbic wit of Tony-Award winning playwright Christopher Durang (Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike) with two of his most outlandish short comedies! In For Whom the Southern Belle Tolls, Durang’s twisted sendup of Tennessee Williams’ The Glass Menagerie, a fading Southern Belle tries to set up her neurotic, cocktail-stirrer-obsessed son with an outlandish “feminine caller.”  In the absurdist Wanda’s Visit, the lives of a bored married couple are turned upside down by the unexpected guest from hell. 

 

 

 

PLATONOV
Written by Anton Chekhov
Directed by Steven Pearson

Run Dates: November 9-17, 2018
Longstreet Theatre

This first, originally untitled, farce by influential playwright Anton Chekhov was never published in his lifetime.  Finding himself on a downward spiral fueled by lust and alcohol, disillusioned schoolteacher Mikhail Platonov proudly lives by the credo “speak ill of everything.”  Platonov’s cynical wit and world-weariness belie a charisma that proves irresistible to the opposite sex, leading him into a tangled - and dangerous - web of love and deceit. 

 

 

 

BY THE BOG OF CATS
Written by Marina Carr
Directed by Conor Gallagher

Run Dates: December 1-4, 2018
Lab Theatre

Set in the ghostly landscape of the bogs of Ireland, By the Bog of Cats traces the desperate journey of Hester Swane, as she fights for respect in the face of a lover’s abandonment and a society that derides her lineage.  Playwright Marina Carr’s haunting adaptation of Euripides’ Medea mixes mysticism and hard-hitting modern realism to weave a riveting tale of betrayal, sacrifice, and vengeance. 

 
 

 

 
 


 

Theatre South Carolina embraces non-traditional casting and encourages the casting of ethnic minority actors, female actors, and physically-challenged actors where possible. Individual show directors, together with the artistic director and the acting faculty, make all casting decisions. While some parts may be cast before auditions, that is always the case with guest actors.
