|All My Sons
| Open: 05/13/10 Close: 05/23/10
Love Creek Productions continues its 25th Anniversary Season by presenting the play that established Arthur Miller as one of America’s foremost playwrights. Based on a true story and set shortly after World War II, All My Sons is about love, honor, integrity, and the consequences of a clash between morality and war. All My Sons looks at how far one will go to achieve material comfort and an improved social status through hard work and determination. The play in essence presents the darker path of the drive to achieve the American Dream and the greed of wartime profiteering. With today’s national headlines of the wars in Iraqand Afghanistan, executives and financial officers of major corporations behind bars, and the financial collapse, All My Sons has a contemporary relevance for American audiences of today. All My Sons shows us how an everyday “Joe” sacrifices his integrity for materialism, and how he confronts his morality in the face of desperation and parental responsibility.
|BACK TO SCHOOL
| Open: 09/14/17 Close: 09/17/17
Two one act plays to complete your (re)education.
The evening begins with the Christopher Durang classic Sister Mary Ignatius Explains It All For
You. Before there was Vanya and Sonya and Masha and Spike, before Betty's Summer Vacation or Beyond Therapy there was Sister Mary, the Nun who teaches grade school and explained how life works. Here she gives her lessons to you and to her young student Thomas, who loves her, like all of Sister Mary's students. Four of them return to present the Christmas Pagent for Sister Mary but one of them has something else in mind. Don't worry, I'm sure Sister Mary has something up her sleeve.
We complete the evening with The Lesson by Eugéne Ionesco. One of the greatest writers of the French Avant-garde, Rhinoceros, The Bald Soprano, we are pleased to present one of his early works. An absurd but terrifying private lesson in "New Spanish" and obedience unfolds as a student comes to the home of the Professor. Slowly the position of power and authority devour the humanity and a grotesque lesson is learned.
Presented with a 10 minute intermission.

Frau Dracula is an eclectic updating of Bram Stoker’s classic, Dracula. Borrowing liberally from 1930’s horror films, gender mirroring and a dash of steampunk esthetics, the show is a fun, sexy and wicked retelling of Dracula. Set just before the beginning of WWII, Baroness Von Dracula, or as she prefers, Frau Dracula, is living in Prussia and she makes the journey to England to claim Lucian Seward as her own. Standing in her way is Lucian’s fiancé Fredericka (Freddie) Harker and a Dutch Professor named Wilhelmina Van Helsing. Aided by her helpers Olga and Helga and a group of seven deadlies, until recently a group of English school girls, Dracula has brought an army to bear on Dr. Seward’s sanatorium.

|Period Of Adjustment
| Open: 01/12/12 Close: 01/15/12
A COMEDY by Tennessee Williams!
The Tennessee Williams centennial celebration continues with this production of a lesser known gem of a play, Period of Adjustment, by the great American playwright that has warmth, wisdom, and hilarious good humor! This production is presented by Love Creek Productions, currently in its 26th year as one of New York's most acclaimed and prolific Off-Off Broadway companies, and in association with TimeSpace Theatre Company.
Period of Adjustment tells the story of two marriages at points of acute crisis. One couple has just broken up after five years together. The other has not been able to come to terms in one day of wedlock. Both couples are going through a ‘period of adjustment,’ and the phrase is tinged with irony. The play examines the sources of the crisis. Ralph Bates, a former war hero, has in-law trouble. George Haverstick, a war buddy who unexpectedly visits Ralph on Christmas Eve with his bride of one day, has the shakes. But, as it is a comedy, the end is a happy one!
Featuring: Alan Bordelon, Kira Borrowdale, Paul Casali, Carl Gibson, Mary Jane Gocher, Faith Sullivan, David Wetter, and Kamaria Williams

Elly is pregnant and is considering an abortion, Jen is being harassed by a co worker who is obsessed with her and Gayle is just feeling a bit lost. Their problems are compounded by a fourth roommate, Jessica, a religious young woman who has little compassion for their confused attempts to make sense of life in the nineties.

|Wincing At The Light
| Open: 02/24/10 Close: 02/27/10
When a professional hockey team comes calling, Ben has to celebrate. His zealous festivities leave him with an upset girlfriend, a lovelorn best friend, an underappreciated teammate, and an ankle device monitoring his movements to a probation officer. As their final playoff game approaches, Ben not-so-deftly navigates the temptations that could potentially undercut his future and leave him with all or nothing. Wincing at the Light is a comedic portrayal of what can happen when loyalty, friendship, and love are forced to face off to decide the true winner.
Directed by Gretchen Ferris
