Nobles Theatre Collective: Upcoming Events

Please join the Nobles Theatre Collective for one of our fall theatre productions! We’ll begin the season with our Student-Directed Production in the Goins Dance Studio on 10/19 and 10/20. Samantha Janower (Class II) directs Impromptu by Tad Mosel and Cate MacDonald (Class II) stages James McLure’s Laundry and Bourbon.

The following week we will proudly present our fall mainstage production, the hilarious dark comedy The Cripple of Inishmaan by Martin McDonagh. Set on a remote island off the west coast of Ireland in 1934, The Cripple of Inishmaan is a strange comic tale in the great tradition of Irish storytelling. As word arrives on Inishmaan that the Hollywood director Robert Flaherty is coming to the neighboring island of Inishmore to film Man of Aran, the one person who wants to be in the film more than anybody is seventeen-year-old Cripple Billy, if only to break away from the bitter tedium of his daily life. The New York Times wrote that "McDonagh has a way of mixing up his humor with a touch of the poet and a profound sense of tragedy.” This play is about family, love, and young people coming of age.

Performances will be held in the Vinik Theatre from October 25 to 28. For both productions, no tickets are needed and admission is free.

Please note that The Cripple of Inishmaan includes some coarse language and mature themes. Parents of younger students should consider whether to send their children to the show. We believe that this script will create excellent opportunities for our student actors, technicians, and audiences to think, laugh, and contemplate issues and questions that are relevant to their lives. If you have any questions about the material or would like a copy of the script to peruse, please contact Director of Theatre Daniel Halperin.

We will be doing everything we can from now to show time to make the performances as worth your time as possible. Join us!
