Ghost Light Now & ThenA new play by Barbara KahnDirected by Robert Gonzales Jr and Barbara KahnSet & Lighting Design by Mark MarcanteCostume Design by Everett ClarkSound Design and Operation by Joy LinsheidFeaturing Danielle Aziza, Amanda Boekelheide, Rachel Drayke, Robert Gonzales Jr., Micha Lazare, Brandon Sngdnc Mellette and Steph Van Vlack.Ghost Light Now & Then is a “time-fluid” play that is both historic and contemporary. A ghost light is a single light left on onstage when a theater is otherwise dark. There is a superstition that every theater has ghosts and that ghost lights provide illumination for the ghosts to perform. New Yorkers Becky and Mandy are not immune to the homophobia that has threatened their marriage. During an inexplicable seismic event in 2017, they are flung through a window into the Greenwich Village Theater in the early twentieth century. Inspired by “Alice in Wonderland” and “The Wizard of Oz,” they search for a pathway back home. The women discover that issues and conflicts confronting their world—homophobia, racism and anti-Semitism—havent changed in a century. They learn life lessons about prejudice, trust and love while seeking an exit to the present day. Wandering through remnants of scenery, they encounter ghosts from productions that haunt the site of the theater that was demolished in 1930. Characters and snatches of dialogue from these productions of the past are woven into this contemporary play. Barbara Kahns plays have been produced in the U.S., France and Germany. She has directed in New York, Paris, and at the National Theatre in London. Theater for the New City has been the primary New York City home for Barbaras plays since 1994. Among her many awards, she was honored with the Torch of Hope Award for lifetime achievement in non-profit theatre, following past recipients Terrence McNally, John Guare, August Wilson, Horton Foote and A.R. Gurney; the joint Robert Chesley Playwriting Award/Wurlitzer Foundation Residency in Ta

Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead
 
A stimulating, funny and imaginative comedy.
 
Venue: ( Dover Little Theatre)
Dover Little Theatre
Producer: ( Dover Little Theatre, Inc.)
Dover Little Theatre, Inc.
City: Dover

Additional Notes:
Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead is the fabulously inventive tale of Hamlet as told from the worm's-eye view of the bewildered Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, two minor characters in Shakespeare's play. In Tom Stoppard's best known work, this Shakespearean Laurel and Hardy finally get a chance to take the lead role, but do so in a world where echoes of Waiting for Godot resound, where reality and illusion intermix and where fate leads our two heroes to a tragic but inevitable end.
