"Good-Night, Caroline" presented by Candlelight Theatre
Enjoy the hilarity that ensues as the usual calm and quiet of night becomes chaotic, comedic and all-together ridiculous in Good-Night, Caroline - a collection of three one-act vintage comedies premiering this spring. Each play is performed in a different room of the mansion complete with candlelight and the rich ambiance of original President Harrison furnishings.
Night Nurse, Madeline, by James Trofatter, will be performed in the back parlor. Wilfred Hornberry's physician has prescribed rest and quiet. Unfortunately for Mr. Hornberry, his private duty nurse, Madeline McMurphy, doesn't quite understand the concepts of rest and quiet. Will Wilfred be able to maintain his sanity before Nurse Madeline drives him to homicide?
The dining room sets the stage for Suppressed Desires, Susan Glaspell's amusing travesty about misapplied psychology. Henrietta Brewster's obsession with psychoanalysis leads to a completely off-the-wall interpretation of a dream. Will this destroy her marriage? Will her younger cousin run off with the dentist? Or will all be saved before the absurdity of the situation is realized?
Good-Night, Caroline, by Conrad Seiler, will be played in the master bedroom. All Alfred wants is to get a good night's sleep. But at 2 a.m., his wife, Caroline, would rather argue. When Alfred gets out of bed to check into a noise, Caroline finds an ally in a burglar who has entered their home. Her new mission becomes reforming the thief, while getting even with her husband at the same time!
Performances will sell out. Reservations strongly suggested.
Consider booking a private room for up to 20 guests - a great way to enjoy a night out with friends, family, clients or co-workers!
