THE HOUSE OF BLUE LEAVES at Palm Beach Dramaworks

It’s October 4, 1965, and Pope Paul VI is spending 14 hours in New York City, marking the first visit by a reigning pope to the United States. Millions line the streets to greet him and zookeeper Artie Shaughnessy, a wannabe Hollywood songwriter with big dreams and no discernible talent, joins the throngs in the hope that a papal blessing will help propel him out of Queens, away from his mentally ill wife, Bananas, and into a new life in Los Angeles with his girlfriend, Bunny Flingus. 

The pontiff’s historic excursion is a palpable presence in John Guare’s black comedy The House of Blue Leaves, which closes out Palm Beach Dramaworks’ 2018-2019 season. This surrealistic, heartbreaking and hilarious Obie Award-winning play, directed by J. Barry Lewis, opens on May 17 and continues through June 2, with specially priced previews on May 15 and 16.

DOUBT - A PARABLE

Doubt, A Parable, which opened on Broadway in 2005, won the Tony Award for Best Play, New York Drama Critics Circle Award, The Drama League Award, the Drama Desk Award, and the Pulitzer Prize. It was turned into an Academy Award-nominated film starring Meryl Streep as Sister Aloysius and the late Philip Seymour Hoffman as Father Flynn.

Set during the civil rights era in 1964 at a Catholic school in the Bronx, Doubt: A Parable focuses on the school’s principal, Sister Aloysius, a nun who values a stern hand over progressive education. When the priest, Father Flynn, is suspected of inappropriate behavior with the school’s first black student, Sister Aloysius begins a crusade to rid the church of him—jeopardizing her own career as well as his. As the play unfolds, ideas of compassion, innocence, tolerance and certainty are tested, forcing the question the playwright himself posed: “What is lost and what is gained when the world changes?” For more information and tickets, click here: www.actorsplayhouse.org.
