The Moors

 

Sierra Stages and the Miners Foundry will present The Moors on Wednesday, January 22 at 7:30pm.  Written by Jen Silverman and directed by Laura LeBleu, The Moors is the next installment of Theater By the Book, a series of informal play readings for the community.

Two sisters (and a melancholy mastiff) live in a ruinous old house on the bleak and fog-enshrouded English moors, dreaming of love and power. When a hapless governess (and a crash-prone moor-hen) arrive out of nowhere, lies are unmasked, loyalties shift, and all are set on a strange and dangerous path until finally – someone reaches the breaking point! ​A mysterious, menacing, and savagely funny mash-up – as though the Brönte Sisters had been dropped into a comedic production of a play by Samuel Beckett.

Doors open at 7:00 p.m. and the performance begins at 7:30 p.m. 

Admission is free with a $10 suggested donation

Outside Mullingar

Sierra Stages and the Miners Foundry will present Outside Mullingar on Wednesday, February 12 at 7:30pm.  Written by John Patrick Shanley and directed by Sands Hall, Outside Mullingar is the next installment of Theater By the Book, a series of informal play readings for the community.

Anthony has spent his entire life on a cattle farm in rural Ireland, a state of affairs that—due to his painful shyness—suits him well. Rosemary lives right next door, determined to have him, watching the years slip away. With Anthony’s father threatening to disinherit him and a land feud simmering between their families, Rosemary has every reason to fear romantic catastrophe. But then, in this very Irish story with a surprising depth of poetic passion, these yearning, eccentric souls fight their way towards solid ground and some kind of happiness. Their journey is heartbreaking, funny, and ultimately deeply moving. Outside Mullingar is a compassionate, delightful work about how it’s never too late to take a chance on love.

Doors open at 7:00 p.m. and the performance begins at 7:30 p.m.

ABOUT

Sierra Stages and the Miners Foundry present a “Theater by the Book” play reading of “THE CREDEAUX CANVAS” by Keith Bunin, directed by Jonathan Hansard on Wednesday, March 11 at 7:30pm.

Jamie, Winston, and Amelia are three young struggling artists. In a scheming attempt to raise funds, Jamie convinces an art collector that he owns an original and extremely rare painting by a little-known French master Jean Paul Credeaux. As their plan unfolds, they create an imitation Credeaux and an entangled affair. “THE CREDEAUX CANVAS” is a complex love story, shining a sharp light on the things we give up in the fight for what we want.

Doors open at 7:00 p.m. and the performance begins at 7:30 p.m.

ABOUT

Sierra Stages and the Miners Foundry present a “Theater by the Book” play reading of “TINY BEAUTIFUL THINGS”, directed by Lois Masten on Wednesday, May 20, 2020 at 7:30pm.

Based on the best-selling book by Cheryl Strayed and adapted for the stage by Nia Vardalos, Tiny Beautiful Things personifies the questions and answers that “Sugar” was publishing online from 2010-2012. When the struggling writer was asked to take over the unpaid, anonymous position of advice columnist, Strayed used empathy and her personal experiences to help those seeking guidance for obstacles both large and small. Tiny Beautiful Things is a play about reaching when you’re stuck, healing when you’re broken, and finding the courage to take on the questions which have no answers.

Doors open at 7:00 p.m. and the performance begins at 7:30 p.m.
