Amazing Activity of Charley Contrare and the Ninety-Eighth Street Gang, The Comedy/Satire; Fantasy/Adventure 9 (5m, 4f) View Details Compare
Short
Synopsis

Is the odyssey of Charley Contrare, who leaves home while still a boy and spends a lifetime seeking to "find" himself, to know who and what he really is. While his mother waits at home, and then eagerly packs her bags hoping to join Charley in Hawaii, we meet Charley at ages sixteen, thirty, sixty and ninety. In this free-flowing fantasy world, filled with theatrically vivid episodes from Charley's various "pasts," each Charley challenges the reality of his alter egos—until, at last, the true Charley arrives, releasing his mother from her long vigil and setting right the kaleidoscope of "amazing activities" that have comprised his multifaceted life.

This ingenious and imaginative comedy-fantasy marked the debut of an exciting and original playwright.

Mrs. Murray's Farm Comedy/Satire 11 (7m, 4f) View Details Compare
Short
Synopsis

The time is 1776, the place Robert Murray's farm, in what is now mid-Manhattan. Preparations are in progress for a gala dinner in honor of General Howe, commander of the British forces which now encircle the beleaguered American troops in lower Manhattan. Mrs. Murray, a witty and ambitious woman with Tory leanings, sees the dinner as a means to curry favor with the expected victors; while her servants, rebels all, hope that delaying General Howe at table will create an opportunity for the hardpressed Americans to escape uptown. Happily, and despite the conflicting motives of the lively and diverse characters involved in the action, this is precisely what occurs—to the bewilderment of the British, the delight of the servants and, in the end, to the grudging admiration of Mrs. Murray as well.

Presented Off-Broadway by the Circle Repertory Company, this fast-moving, farcical comedy offers a fresh and antic interpretation of a fascinating historical incident. "It is history as farce, and Roy London and the Circle Repertory Company have made a dazzling and beautifully staged comedy out of it…MRS. MURRAY'S FARM is a combination of a disciplined and delicate slapstick, writing that is both sinewy and light…" —NY Times. "…a lesson in American history that goes down easy." —The Hollywood Reporter.
