These are the Wednesday Evening Plays in the Greystone Theatre:
September 6: Balancing Act by Frank Salisbury. An accountant plans to escape New York with a large amount of embezzled money, but is visited on the eve of his planned departure by a shy, once-young lady from his accounting department. She suspects there may be foul play afoot and seeks his advice. He tries every way he can think of to “keep her quiet” and hilarity ensues! They both end up satisfied and no one is the wiser.
September 13: The Firestorm by Meredith Friedman. Set in Ohio, Patrick Henderson is hot on the gubernatorial campaign trail with his Ivy League-educated, attorney wife, Gaby. They’re an interracial power couple who look good on paper and in photographs. But even in post-Obama America, their marriage is at once a selling point and a weak spot, according to their campaign manager, Leslie. But Patrick wasn’t the most open-minded fraternity brother during his college years, and a prank from his past threatens both his campaign and his marriage.
September 20: The Ice Cream Sunday by Frank Salisbury, directed by Larry Eisenberg. Set on the grounds of the Massenet Estate in 1955. An actress is determined to celebrate her son’s 25th birthday, while her husband is intent on introducing her to his mistress. Salisbury’s farcical and irreverent comedy is a melange of mistaken identities, promiscuity and exaggerated personalities, reminiscent of madcap comedies of the l930s.
September 27: Beatnik Girl by Leda Siskind, directed by Leda Siskind. It’s 1957 New York and the Beat Generation is creating new poetry, jazz, and art on the Lower East Side. It’s exactly where twenty-two year old Edie Gordon wants to be. But can she find her creative voice while she struggles with misogyny, antisemitism, and an unwanted pregnancy?
