WHO'S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF?
GCA FY17
WHO'S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF?
Set on the campus of a small New England university, Edward Albee’s 1963 Tony Award winner for Best Play opens with the main characters, George and Martha, coming home from a party at her father's house. Events have turned their marriage into a nasty battle between two disenchanted, cynical enemies. Even though the pair arrives home at two o'clock in the morning, they are expecting guests: the new young biology professor and his wife. The evening turns into a nightmare of escalating fighting and humiliations. George and Martha even attack their guests, attempting to force them to reveal their dirty secrets and true selves. Ultimately everyone's secrets have been revealed and purged.

CHRIS LEMMON: A TWIST OF LEMMON
GCA FY17
CHRIS LEMMON: A TWIST OF LEMMON
CHRIS LEMMON: A TWIST OF LEMMON. "A Twist of Lemmon" is based on actor and classically trained musician Chris Lemmon's book of the same title, which tells the story of a beloved Hollywood icon, his dad, Jack Lemmon. Jack starred in over 60 films, was nominated for eight Academy Awards and won two Oscars (for "Mister Roberts" and "Save the Tiger"). Chris tells Jack's story in his father's voice and chronicles his life from birth until his death in 2001 at the age of 76. He'll have you crying and laughing with his stories about Jack's relationships with legends like James Cagney, Gregory Peck, Marilyn Monroe and of course his best friend, Walter Matthau. Jack loved his son Chris, but like many actors put his career first and family second. It's that relationship that's the focal point for this extremely moving story.
