CROTON FALLS, N.Y. -- Spring will bring explorations of family life at The Schoolhouse Theater in three very different productions.
On Sunday, May 1 at 3 p.m. it will present “Multi-Racial Family Man,” a one-man show, written and performed by Alex Barnett as a 48-year-old Jewish man married to a 46-year-old black woman who has converted to Judaism.
On Sunday, May 15 at 3 p.m. they will present “Red Flags: An Anatomy of an Abusive Relationship,” by playwright and performer, Susan Gordon-Clark, telling how her dream of a perfect love became a nightmare of physical and psychological abuse and how she regained her safety and independence. Special reception ticketholders will have the chance to meet-and-greet Susan Gordon-Clark after the performance in the gallery. Proceeds from the reception will support Hope's Door and My Sisters’ Place.
From June 2 to 19 Thursdays to Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 3 p.m. it will present “How to Bury a Saint,” written by Janice Maffei and directed by Bram Lewis, a summer comedy with family business set in Mahopac.
Patsy wants in at the bocce club, but it is for men only. Louis wants out of the funeral business, but that would mean growing up. Lucy wants her mother’s meatball recipe and some respect. This inter-generational comedy explores the gravity of family traditions and how finding your way home takes more than a map: You may need sharp objects and a shot of Anisette. “How to Bury a Saint” will close the 2015-2016 season at The Schoolhouse Theater, but there will be plenty more programming over the summer.
Ticket prices for the three shows vary. For more information, or to purchase tickets, go to their website , or call the box office at 914-277-8477. The Schoolhouse is located at 3 Owens Rd. in Croton Falls just off exit 8 on I-684.
