If you remember our production of Almost, Maine in February of 2011, you’ll remember how delightful John Cariani’s characters and situations are. Last Gas also takes place in way-northern Maine, in a very small, unincorporated town where unusual things happen to ordinary people. It’s on the edge of what’s wild and what’s not. Long-time member Wayland Bunnell (from way-northern New Hampshire) directs a cast of six, four of which are brand new to The Players! Both staff and actors are wonderful, devoted, and working hard to bring in this amazing play. So come take another trip back to way-northern Maine and see how funny, touching, moving and universal the human condition is. There’s more than moose that can cross our paths and bring change!

Yes, it really is a show about Johann Gutenberg, inventor of the printing press. But it’s also about Bud and Doug, two wannabe playwrights who’ve written a show about Gutenberg — a show they’re convinced is the best musical ever written, ever! Now they’re doing a showcase for some really big Broadway producers. But can two guys with no set, no costumes and a handful of props stage an entire Broadway show? They can sure have fun trying!

In The Bald Soprano, a classic of modern theatre, a clock chimes seventeen times for seemingly no reason at all, the doorbell rings but there are no visitors, and the bald soprano never changes her hairstyle. A hilarious and unique satire on modern life by Eugene Ionesco, known as the father of Theatre of the Absurd, this is a theatre experience in which non-sequiturs fly, people talk to each other at cross purposes getting nowhere, and the concept of time is turned on its head. This thought provoking  tour-de-force of linguistic acrobatics about modern communication or the lack thereof is sure to delight.

The Eastman Real Estate Development Corporation is about to embark on the biggest and most extravagant project in the company’s history. As the deadline for designs quickly approaches, the owner of the abutting apartment building finally decides to sell to Eastman Development, changing the Company’s overall plans for the expanded site.

To founder and CEO George Eastman, the upheaval of its new tenants’ lives is an unfortunate, but necessary part of doing business.  But when Frank Eastman — George’s son and heir to the company’s fortune — is unexpectedly confronted by Sophie Weston, an ACLU lawyer (or so he believes) representing the soon-to-be evicted tenants, the encounter triggers a crisis of conscience.  Subsequent events will lead to confusion and upheaval regarding Frank’s job, his up-coming wedding, and his future with his father’s firm.

Auditions: June 3 & 5, 2022.  More info
