Kirkwood Theatre Guild 2023-24 Season
The Last Night of Ballyhoo
Oct 27-Nov 5, 2023
From the author of Driving Miss Daisy comes this story of history and discovery. It is set in Atlanta, December 1939. Hitler has just conquered Poland, Gone With the Wind is about to premiere, and the upper class, German-Jewish Freitag family is so assimilated they have a Christmas tree in the parlor and are looking forward to Ballyhoo, a lavish ball at their restrictive country club. Adolph’s new employee, Joe, is an attractive bachelor and an Eastern European Jew, familiar with prejudice but unable to fathom its existence within his own religious community. His presence prompts college student Sunny to examine her Jewish identity, her biases, and the beliefs with which she was raised.
Picasso At The Lapin Agile
Jan 19-28, 2024
Albert Einstein and Pablo Picasso meet at a bar, the Lapin Agile. Both men are on the verge of revealing amazing concepts. They debate the values of genius and talent, along with the major cultural influences of the twentieth century. Characters represent art, science and commercialism – and then comes “The Visitor,” who proves genius is not just about brains.
Mar 15-24, 2024
The Diviners is set in Zion, Indiana, during the Great Depression. Buddy Layman is a mentally challenged boy whose sweet nature touches those he meets. Buddy is skilled at finding water (divining). When a stranger, a retired preacher, comes to town, he is able to relate to Buddy in ways most people can’t. As the preacher attempts to help him, Buddy’s past is revealed but cannot be escaped.
May 12-21, 2024
Aboard an ocean liner bound from New York to London, Billy Crocker is a stowaway in love with heiress Hope Harcourt, who is engaged to Lord Evelyn Oakleigh. Nightclub singer Reno Sweeney and Public Enemy No. 13, “Moonface” Martin, aid Billy in his quest for love. Favorite songs include “Anything Goes,” “You’re The Top,” and “I Get a Kick Out of You.”
