2019 Season Preview

Pinewood Players Announces 2019 Plays

The 2019 season of Theater in the Pines will open in June with “Cahoots” by Rick Johnson. The play is a “dark comedy” filled with witty dialog and farcical overtones. It will be directed by Frank Hess. Frank is a veteran of the Pinewood Playhouse stage and he has directed three previous main stage productions (“Exit the Body” “Wrong Window” and “The Gazebo”). He most recently produced the 2018 Reader’s Theater for Pinewood Players. CLICK HERE to read a synopsis of “Cahoots.”

The second play of the season scheduled for August will be the award winning drama “A Delicate Balance” by Edward Albee. The play premiered in 1966 starring Jessica Tandy and Hume Croyn. It won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1967. It was made into a movie in 1973 starring Katharine Hepburn, Paul Schofield and Lee Remick. There have been two Broadway revivals of the play, one in 1996 which won the Toni Award for best play revival and the other in 2014 that starred John Lithgow and Glenn Close. Les Maurseth, also a veteran of the Pinewood Playhouse main stage will be returning to direct his second play. Les directed a remarkable production of “Aspirin & Elephants” earlier this season and we are looking forward to enjoying his work again. CLICK HERE to read a brief synopsis of “A Delicate Balance.”
