An angel of the Lord appears to Leonard Tchernik and tells the retired father of three that God wants an enormous Holiday lights display on his roof.

The Prisoner of Second Avenue

Written by Neil Simon

Directed by Frank Malle

This classic play, written in 1971 by one of the world’s most celebrated and widely performed playwrights, still resonates today. Mel Edison has definitely had better days. The summer heat is unbearable, the air-con is on the blink, the noisy neighbors are driving him crazy, his high-stress job is about to vanish, and the television news is getting weirder by the second. Luckily Edna, his loving and supportive wife, is a beacon of hope and sanity. But not for long…! “The Prisoner of Second Avenue” is a comedy that also shows how a husband and wife can weather any storm as long they have each other’s love and support and a very big shovel.

Arsenic and Old Lace

In the PCA Cabaret

January 25, 26, and 27, and February 1, 2, and 3 at 7:30 p.m. and January 28 and February 4 at 2 p.m.

Written by by Joseph Kesselring

Directed by Jim Pyduck

This famous comedy was a smash hit in New York and remains one of the most popular plays to this day! Drama critic Mortimer Brewster’s engagement announcement is upended when he discovers a corpse in his elderly aunts’ window seat. Mortimer rushes to tell Abby and Martha, only to learn that the two old women aren’t just aware of the dead man in their parlor, they killed him! Between his aunts’ penchant for poisoning wine, some wacky relatives—not to mention Mortimer’s own hesitancy about marriage—it’ll be a miracle if Mortimer makes it to his wedding. Arsenic and Old Lace is a classic black comedy about the only thing more deadly than poison: family.
