Compleat Female Stage Beauty

UMD Theatre presents Compleat Female Stage Beauty By Jeffrey Hatcher Directed by Kate Ufema
“She was the first of her kind. He was the last of his.” It’s 1661, the moment in time when women assumed their rightful place on the Shakespearean stages of England. King Charles II decreed that male players were no longer permitted to perform women’s roles, and the torch was passed. Jeffrey Hatcher’s historically based script places us in the minds and hearts of the people, and shockingly illuminates a brutal, rocky road of change. Adult language and subject matter. Not suggested for children under 17.

Last Summer at Bluefish Cove

UMD THEATRE PRESENTS Last Summer at Bluefish Cove By Jane Chambers, Directed by Tom Isbell Dudley

In the summer of 1980, Eva Margolis leaves her husband and winds up in Bluefish Cove, not knowing she’s stumbled into a community of lesbians. What happens next will forever change her life – and the lives of those around her. Important in the history of lesbian theatre as being “the first mainstream quality literary piece of its kind,” Last Summer at Bluefish Cove is a love story that equally balances comedy and drama, provoking laughter one moment and tears the next.
