Harvey produced by The Saybrook Stage Company

Harvey has been entertaining audiences for almost three quarters of a century and it is still as funny and relevant today as it was when it first opened on Broadway in 1944. Mary Chase's Pulitzer Prize winning piece was then adapted for film in 1950 starring Jimmy Stewart and revived in 2012 at the Roundabout Theatre in New York City to standing ovations.

How The Other Half Loves

Alan Ayckbourn’s farcical tale of matrimonial mishaps, “How The Other Half Loves” leaves audiences in stitches. Aykbourn enthralls with his clever use of space and time as he intertwines the lives of two very different couples – a perfectly posh upper-class older one and a messy middle-class younger one – on the same stage!

Barefoot In The Park

A hilarious romantic comedy about a conservative straight-as-an-arrow young lawyer and his free-spirited new bride. They are newlyweds in every sense of the word – still giddy from their over-the-top honeymoon at The Plaza – and now find themselves in a less-than-perfect Greenwich Village fifth-floor walkup in New York City.

The turning point of the 20th Century wasn't on television - it was television! It's 1929. Two ambitious visionaries race against each other to invent a device called "television." Separated by two thousand miles, each knows that if he stops working, even for a moment, the other will gain the edge. Who will unlock the key to the greatest innovation of the 20th century: the ruthless media mogul, or the self-taught Idaho farm boy?

It has been said that “once is not enough” to get all the jokes and catch every sight gag in this hilarious farce “Noises Off” – called the funniest farce ever written. The story unfolds as the actors are rehearsing a badly written play causing everyone to share in the overall confusion and frustration along with doors slamming; intrigue on and off stage and relationships overlapping – the result is an absurdly funny and action-packed, fast paced comedy.

Set in a comfortable Connecticut home; the once-popular writer is prepared to go to any length to improve his fortunes which provides the twists and turns and sudden shock that keeps audiences spellbound until the very last minute. The production was embraced by the audiences and sold out for the entire weekend performances.
